    He is horrible ... he has some physical tools and little to no NFL QB brain.

    Much closer to Archie I would say.

    What a waste of the #1 pick ... perhaps they will give us all their picks to aquire a new QB?

    Archie was a much better QB than Eli.

    Archie was actually pretty good, just that the Saints team overall was very bad while he was there.

    I agree somewhat ... but those INT's ... a Manning tradition perhaps?

    A new NFL STAT: "MOST INT'S BY A FAMILY". .. Record held by the Mannings.

    Archie was an excellant QB who played for a horrible team. IIRC, he was the leauge MVP once.

    I lived through the Archie years ... he received alot of sympathy. He was better than average ... not great ... and like his sons loved to throw INT's.

    Re: Eli Manning ... Is He Peyton or Archie?

    Do you mean that Archie threw a lot of INTs? If so, you can't compare QB stats then and now. For example Joe Namath had 173 TDs and 220 INTs and he's in the HOF. They used to let DBs pound the crap out of receivers all the way down the field. Now we have the 5 yard rule and the "Polian rules". :D

    I saw Eli in a movie once. He was sittin' on a porch somewhere in Georgia, wearin' bibbers and playin' a banjo. Damn fine banjo player. Glad he got his teeth fixed.

    Archie Bunker could play quarterback better than Eli.

    I'm sorry, I can't call someone who, throws far more INT than TD and had only 2 seasons with more TD than INT, a good QB.
