    Did you see Eli yell at Ahmad Bradshaw for missing his assignment during the Giants-Saints game? This seems to run in the family.

    C'mon..........
    Brady has done things he regrets as well, including that tirade he threw on the sidelines a few weeks ago.

    I don't think he threw him under the bus, I didn't see him use Bradshaw as an excuse to the press.....he was pissed, he told him, but the cameras saw it....happens more than we know I'm sure.

    Yup ... they all throw fits ... except for Vince Young ... his team yells at him instead.

    Players need to do things like that if they want to be leaders.

    He was right to yell at him, Bradshaw totally missed his blocking assignment that gump jr. pointed out to him at the line. Now if he called him out in the media that's different.

    Eli reminded me of a spoiled frat rat playing intramural football in college . . . As a former Quarterback myself, I thought his physical contact (slapping Bradshaw on the helmet as I recall) with his teammate was highly inappropriate.

    I give a lot of latitude to what guys do during a game (within reason, of course). I don't really consider it "throwing someone under a bus" unless it happens after someone has had time to chill, e.g. the postgame presser or an interview.

    Hitting a teammate crosses the line.

    I missed that, but it only crosses a line if Bradshaw thinks it does.

    I have no problem with what he did. He pointed out who he needed to block before the play on his pre-snap reads/adjustments. He literally pointed the guy out to him and he still missed it. After the play he yelled at him a bit and gave him a tap on the helmet and a shoulder pad like "get you're head in the game" smack. No big deal, it's football.

    See, you can do all that, but don't touch your teammate. And to do it on the field . . . Eli will hear about that very soon, probably from coaches and teammates.

    But did Brady touch Maroney, or worse, slap him like Eli did?

    Nah i don't think the coaches will have a problem with that. They will probably bring up the fact that after the missed block Eli closed his eyes and chucked it up there. But he's the leader of the team and a SB winner (dammit i hate that) he can call out whoever he wants where ever he wants.

    see i disagree. you do that kind of stuff on the sideline and after you calm down. eli was SUPPOSED to be unflappable. his teammates will not like that one bit. bottom line was that game was was long over before that incident occured.

    qbs tap their guys on the helmet all the time

    it's never throwing under the bus when it's during the game

    you see qbs yell at refs, their own players, opposing players and themselves all the time

    nothing to see here

    I think it is OK for QBs to yell at teammates on the sideline. Unforgivable for blasting them to the press. What Manning did was OK.
