The debate is over. It is really simple. Eli is a QB that can play at elite level for stretches but is not an elite QB. He is too inconsistent to be elite. Lets look at it this way, could you imagine Brady, Peyton or to a lesser extent Rodgers(not even close to best qb in the league) being 0-3? No it wouldn't happen. Elite Qb's will win one of the games by themselves if need be and will a victory. So when he is on his game he can play as well if not better then any of them, he has too many non elite moments to be looked at as Elite.
