and what's the point of this?
Eli's Giants have beaten the Pats the last 3x they've played, and twice ended our Super Bowl dreams. Eli's a goofy looking guy, but in the clutch no one has been better the last few years.
I love these. Found this one a long time ago.
I hate these.
I know not what game you are referring to:nooo:
While you guys are posting these, you should walk around town just kicking Patriots fans in the balls to add to the laughs. :bricks:
I think we've lost our right to say anything about the NYG.
Why can't we laugh at ourselves every once in a while?
I agree with the point of this thread. There is a fine line between "elite" and being on the right side of luck. Obviously I'm biased, but to me Eli has done nothing to show that he's not the latter. When he wins the Super Bowl without an impossible catch on a game-winning drive, I may reconsider. Alternately, if he puts up elite numbers for the first time in his career that may work for me too.
But you wouldn't be saying that if Samuel had not dropped the ball. The throw was atrocious. He threw a stink bomb in the biggest drive of his life and he got away with it.
That's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
It's not the topic but the content. A no point did I even consider laughing or making the comment "hey, that was very clever".
To say that Eli's sucess is attributed to being on the right side of luck is silly. Its ok to be bitter but look at the big picture.
Eli is not a statistically elite QB but hes had not one but TWO game winning championship drives.
Brady was not a statistically elite QB when he won 3 SBs and had two GW drives.
I couldn't care less about statically elite QBs. Lombardi's are all that matter. Big plays at the right time.
If my team was down 21-17 in the SB, I would feel pretty good with Eli as my QB over 28 other QBs.
Thats all that matters.
i have more reason to hate eli than anyone here, but i simply stopped doing it when he proved he belonged , and when he proved how clutch he was
sure he hasn't always looked great, or even good in his career, and his lifetime numbers aren't stellar
but he turned a corner very rappidly from middle of the pack to elite, and for that, i gotta recognize him as such, and as much as i truely want to hate him, aside from his piece of **** father, he seems like a decent fellow, and a good team leader, not a vocal leader or a rah rah brees type, but he seems like he has a quiet determination about him and he seems like he no longer gets ruffled
i used to think of him as an emotionless robot who looked like he didn't even enjoy playing the game, but i think that's just how he is, and now it's surely working for him
he's not the model of consistency over his career that others have been, but he has turned that ******* corner big time, and the season he had last year was pretty amazing
oh and to throw the obvious out there, i would still trust a guy like brady to do more with less, but then we're also getting into comparisons where you've gotta recognize the greatness that brady has had in belichik
that's not an unfair point, but go back and watch the sb where the 49ers put a last second drive on the bengals, and montana throws a game winner to john taylor
go watch the final drive, because montana throws a pass right into the chest of a bengals LB and the bengals LB drops it.......
luck is a big part of any sport.....believe that!
When it comes to head-to-head matchups you can't possibly deny that Eli>Brady and Coughlin>Belichick.
sure I can...just like YOU deny being a Jets fan troll...
