Thread: Anyone who thinks eli will not flourish in in a west coast offense....

    Anyways, whatever the reason, I don't doubt that he can adjust to the west coast.
    btw, the picture in your sig is freaking hilarious ...

With the steady decline of the O-Line and him taking hits and sacks like never before it sort of shocked him cause the whole time he has been he he has always enjoyed a very good line in front of him.

    After the break down of the line when it was evident he was going to be hit even when he was getting passes off he started to get jumpy and rushed out throws and with that it had an effect on his accuracy.. He started under and overthrowing and balls were coming out like wounded ducks.

    I think he can again get back to the franchise QB we all knew and loved if they can fix the blocking and give him the time he has enjoyed in the past... Let's see what Coach Mac can do about getting him some protection. Once he had that then we can all decide weather or not Eli had declined or not
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    I don't want to take away anything for what Eli did for us at the end of the 2007 because winning that Super Bowl was the greatest experience I've had as a Giants fan. But it seems that people don't remember how Eli was playing back then. He still was prone to making mistakes in early 2007 and it was when Eli started to protect the football when things turned around for us. It wasn't as if he played some tremendous football out there, he simply play smarter and it was good enough for us to win.

    i def think he was tremendous in that playoff run in 07. he struggled mightily in the reg. season, but something clicked in the postseason. it wasnt simply "him playing smarter", dude was making tremendous throws. that gb game was epic. He didnt do anything really special in te TB game, but in the Dallas, GB, and NE games, he made tremendous throws that if they werent made, we dont win. and each game was on the road, another added road block for most teams/qbs. and the competition; TB, Dallas, and NE all fielded top 10 Defenses and GB's was like 11th iirc.

    That GB game, man what a game. Does eli have the most road playoff victories for a QB in NFL history? i want to say he does but am not sure on that...that could be a factor in his value/worth from the topic earlier,

    Dear God, I cant believe the amount of acute tunnel vision in this thread. In your version of reality, the rings erase every and all mistakes and boneheaded plays that Eli ever made, and have basically granted him complete immunity from criticism and/or negative commentary of any kind.

    In the reality that normal people with 20/20 vision live in, the rings were a major high point for all Giants fans, and we'll always be eternally grateful for Eli's contributions to them. However, he still has played at a sub-par level for much of his career, including 2007, and for the money he makes and his years of experience, most feel that he should be playing at a much higher, more consistent level. Rings, MVP awards.....all in the past. They did absolutely nothing to help the team before or after he won them, so...

    Please explain how they can possibly be relevant to what the team does going forward, and how those rings and MVP awards should force the team to hold off from pushing Eli with actual competition in the form of another possible starting QB. Take all the time you need. Using the word "hater" in your response will earn you a 1 day ban. Fair warning!

    I think he is like 5-1 on the Road in playoffs not counting the two SBs which we were the Away Team for. He lost his first ever Road Playoff game at Philly. Then won @ TB, @ Dallas & @ GB in 07. In 2011 in won @ GB & @ SF..

    Don't get me wrong I believe he played very well overall. Eli always makes tremendous throws in the game, the trouble is he also can make some boneheaded throws as well. So that's why describe the difference as him playing smarter.

    2007 was a season which Plaxico Burress was simply phenomenal. Eli benefited greatly by Plaxico, and the GB game was a perfect example of that.

    Again, not taking anything away from Eli.

    Actually Flacco has more Road playoff wins with six then any other QB but he has 4 Road losses. So Eli has the best percentage with a 5-1 record with a bunch if guys behind him at 4-1... Here

    One thing I noticed in this video is he didnt shrug his shoulders even once. I wonder if that is a tic he developed int he pros. He shrugs his shoulders, or kinda rolls them, after every pass.

    Manning actually has a bad Home playoff record at 1-2 with bad losses to Carolina 23-0 & Philly 22-11 in that 12-4 season when Plax shot himself and we lost final 4/5 including the playoff game. The one Home playoff win was a dominating performance in 2011 vs Atlanta 24-2...

    Here's a page that has all QBs and there Playoff Records...
