    I understand what you are saying but the bottom line out weights the inconsistency
    Its not a matter of one outweighing the other. I am actually very happy in general with my QB. But he still drives me nuts with the up and down thing.
    Using the word "inconsistent" isn't really accurate. Its more Jekyll and Hyde. Its "which Eli is going to show up today?".

    And Eli is the QB of my team...so he is much more "my boy' Than any Jets QB could ever be.
    Get well soon 80.

    sometimes his inconsistency can be from half to half....how many times has he looked like a poor high school Qb in the first half and then led a 4th quarter comeback?
    "When I was 15, I could not believe how dumb my father was.....when I was 25, I could not believe how much he had learned in 10 years"

    1st to use the phrase "In Reese we trust"

    i.e the Rams game from last year. I think it was game 2.

    Every one loves to point out Eli's clutch games.... I am not arguing....but about half of those games... a comeback wouldn't have been needed If he had just been adequate in the first half

    Look at the Washington game at home last year. He played very poorly in that game but Cruz beat his man and all is forgiven. Some of his decisions in that game were friggin head scratchers.

    Its just not the case with Eli. So much up and down.
    This is why, even experts can't agree on Eli.
    Whens the last time hes been "horrific"? When you say that, I think of Mark Sanchez

    Try being Alex Smith who is now playing in his 5th or so system.
    So that game was all on Eli ?
