    I think a lot of the older posters, myself included, struggle with that.

    He regressed and he is now not the foundatiom of our team? Is Drew Brees not the foundation of the Saints because of his iffy season? (Don't bring up 40 td's because he still struggled). Without Eli, we wouldn't have won the SB in 2007 or 2011. We live and die by Eli's play on the field. He is very much so the foundation of this team.

    Yes, no doubt it's been a helluva ride so far with Eli.

    Eli was the jewel in the draft, but he didn't come in and light up the league by any stretch. Three years in and our GM is referring to him as skittish.

    So no, when I think in terms of that word I don't think of Eli, I think of his brother.

    he didnt act or perform like the "foundation" at first but he was certainly drafted/traded to be just that. Like most QBs.....

    I believe he saved more games in 2011 than he saved in 2008,2009 and 2010 combined.

    Which is not meant as an insult in anyway. Maybe it's simply an age thing.
