    I was shocked at the way he and Plax were able to hook-up so often in the GB game considering the weather conditions. I really wasn't sure that a kid from NO would be able to hold-up in those conditions, and am still wondering today how they did it.

    I do remember that run and I do remember some of the spectacular catches our receivers made on badly thrown balls. I also remember our D picking off Brette favre to win the game in GB. Like I said, Eli was an important part because he is the QB and all goes through him, but he is not an elite QB. By far.

    The only question I'd have is how long could I laugh in that GM's face before I needed a breath. 1st round picks are still big gambles

    when they asked Eli about that he said he had a few secrets to keep the cold at bay...

    that game and that whole playoff run was great

    Seems like he is saying Eli has taken us to 2 SBs. Are you telling me you believe Eli is that good that we couldn't likely land a potential SB qb in the top part of the draft? Where was Brady picked? How about Montana, Rodgers, etc? Fact is there is nothing in Eli's stats that tell me he is a QB that most people would build around. He gets credit for the SBs because this league and it's fans have always held the QB as the proxy for all things good. Fact is Eli is probably the worst modern day QB to win 2 SBs.

    I like Eli, but to sit here and act like its unlikely we find an equivalent talent out of the draft is a joke.
    Give up a franchise player is not the same as "Eli has given us 2 SB's."

    And now you are jumping to conclusions. Nobody ever claimed that Eli cannot and will not be replaced. Our OL need to be rebuilt...it's obviously affecting his play. We all know Eli is capable of playing much better than this when he has blockers and a go to WR.

    By the way, if you don't believe that Eli was a part of those 2 SB runs then fine. Obviously many fans and the Giants organization do.

    Please support.
    Get well soon #80.

    They really were. I get goose bumps right now when I think about that fade to Plax in the corner and the ball nestling in his hands...which, btw, could have been thrown better...and the realization that they just might win this thing.
