The defense played great in those two runs, but Eli was damned near flawless in those runs as well. He was absolutely masterful in both NFC Championship Games. I think he had one interception 8 games total.
We've had Eli for 10 years. We know what we have. Some days he can look like the worst QB on the planet, on others he's as good as anybody out there. It's more telling that every time we attempt a run play it's stuffed for a 2 yard loss, it's like the O linemen aren't even there.
Eli has reverted back to his old self though. Right now, its a chuck and duck with no stratagy. ITs either a 70 yards TD or an INT. Its why the Panthers secondary of all teams, said they will stack the box on Eli then wait for his implosion in the fourth quarter when the Giants are pressing.
If you aren't first, you're last.
Unless you're last, then you are first?
In summary, I don't think Eli sucks and I don't think Romo sucks, they are both put in bad positions.
