    It has always been that way, it's a phenomenon I have never understood. No controversy = no interest.

What I mean is he will give you a good season. I guess its time i appreciated that.


    I personally dont think he is a HOFer, or even a top 5 QB (maybe he is). But at least he isnt a bobo. and for that im thankful.

    Doesn't sound like you have confidence in him...lol.

    The bottom line is there are a handful of NFL teams that have a QB that can pass their team to the SB. And have one of those QB's. So call him what you want, and rank him wherever you want to rank him. Who cares.
    i think you misunderstand many of us dont care where he ranks either.

    Nice way of spinning your agenda. We all know you are stirring the pot. You never stated why you have confidence in him. All you did is say why he's not a HOFer, how he inconsistent, and not a top 5 qb.

    how else can u explain throwing it away on 4th and long when there was coverage? He didnt even attempt to throw it to a target lol. i get dion that on 3rd, but 4th and long on ur last possession when ur down? i dunno that was very very weird.

    and, he really does play with stats on his mind it seems like it really does. not necessarily a bad thing at times, he may trying to attain a goal or something, but I've def noticed some precarious situations where his decision has been extremely odd...

    That's me though.

    And I think they are good people as well. I just didn't like this behavior.
    The Manning's seized the opportunity and did what they felt was the right thing for Eli.

    In looking back do you think this affects people's perception of Eli and Archie (AL Smith aside)?

    and for me, its way different with eli making the mistakes hes made, and learning/progressing seadily over the years as opposed to rivers and this huge regresion. eli has had his share of moronic plays. but thats something thats improving over time, not regressing over time like rivers. if eli were making the mistakes he was making in succession, each on worse than the next, and continually getting worse, i'd say the same thing about eli as i am right now about rivers.

    I think he just trusted his pops.
