    I still honestly wonder....... is it Eli getting out of the huddle late or is he getting the play late?? and that's the cause.....Just seems to convenient to just blame Eli every time

    he was really accurate on his assessment. he often early in his career was wild high, he doesnt have the best genes athletic wise and he often forces passes resulting in too many ints. but he has some sort of special magic that he can throw off his back foot while eyes closed and make a outstanding play when most of us are thinking oohhhh noooo. he works hard is a smart player and just over all a good guy.

    if i was EA and saw him throw 3 ints i would have rated him much lower. but EA we know was crazy about last names after he missed out on FA ronde Barber.

    I prefer Eli's numbers to look like 2008 in this Gilbride offense because it means the running game is doing the job it's supposed to do.

    I think it's Gilbride. Eli always looks pissed when he has to call a timeout.

    Agreed, which is why I said I wasn't knocking him. I do believe it's our system.

    Eli is a big game player, would never count out the Giants in the playoffs while he is the quarteback

    this might be the worst explanation/summary possible of what EA actually said

    True, but with 2 1000 yard rushers, you'd expect much better numbers. Heck, when Ben was playing game manager with Bettis, he had a phenomenal year where all he had to do was hit the open man. He had some games where he went something like 14-20 2 TDs and 250 yards.

    To maximize Eli imo, he needs to throw more. I'm not saying that the Giants as a whole will be more successful, but Eli personally will play better.

    i honestly cant fathom how some of these "thoughts" are being reached, how far off base and out of whack...kinda impossible to believe.

    somehow Pitt wanting to limit Bens pass attempts those first two yrs with Bettis bc he was absolutely terrible when he had thrown for more than like 18 passes. It was 1 of the only times i'd ever seen a qb get the tebow treatment long before tebow (ya know, run run run. pass if you have to out of desperation). Pitt went something like 10-0 when ben had less than 20 attempts and no tds lmfao...yeah he really knew how to maximize his game where eli needs "more passes and should be more like ben those first years and maximize his play" unfrigging believable lmao. big ben maximized his play so much it rubbed off on randle el who was the better qb (as a WR) that first SB (where ben had the worst performance by a sb qb all time iirc?)big ben was the ultimate "put in someone to manage his attempts and not turn it over" QB those first few yrs.
