    I know you're happy with the win but the ultimate goal is to continue winning. Welcome to the next level.
    Na your more concerned with stats and regular season records. I could care less ultimately what our regular season record is, just as long as we get into the playoffs. We've made the playoffs with 8 wins, and missed with 10. The only purpose is to get into the playoffs, where its a new season within the season.

    And THATS what I end up judging our performances on.

    Sure to an extent we judge regular season and we go back and forth with numbers, but its all about the post season.
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    Correct.

    I think people knock Eli even though they say it doesn't matter, because his stats are not up to par with other quarterbacks. It's quite obvious. At some point, you have to look past that and see the end result. Individual quarterback records and statistics are great, and I understand that Eli may not possess the talents that his peers have, but you are looking at only one aspect and not the entire body of work.

    By the way, when did Super bowls become team wins? But regular season games are quarterback showcases?

    I think I speak for most people on here that we are perfectly happy and most importantly, comfortable with Eli as our QB. You can't argue with making the playoffs and SB as results. He kind of molds his play by doing what the team needs him to do during the situation. It isn't pretty, but he does JUST enough, to get by. Even if he has a terrible game, he'll still do just enough to make the game close and lead one of his game winning drives.

    But as a whole, he certainly gets it done.

    Wins are a team accomplishment, regardless of when.

    Not me.

    I just want to win. I could care less about his stats.
