This has been a discussion ever since he opened his mouth at the very begining of the year. Eli Manning, self-proclaimed himself to be a top five quarterback. When that happened, you had a bunch of idiots running with it, calling him elite. Are you serious? I have said it many times in coversation, on my site, and on the radio, the BTR Network, Eli Manning is NOT an elite quarterback!!! I don’t know how many times I have heard this stupid saying, you can’t spell elite without Eli. You know what? You can’t spell eliminated without ELI as well. With this joke of a quarterback as the ring leader of this circus show in New Jersey, that is what is going to happen, they will be eliminated.
With the NY Giants losing 5 0f the last 6 games, it looks to be more and more realistic that they will be eliminated. That win over the Dallas Cowboys last week doesn’t seem as important as their meltdown does. I thought it was funny that the media was quick to label Eli as an elite quarterback again and Tony Romo as a choke artist again. When really it wasn’t either one of them that won or lost the game. The NY Giants win was really more on how the Dallas Cowboys defense sucked at the end of the game. People like ESPN and the NFL Network must of seen a different game or a different Eli, because the Eli I saw in the game was average.
With the season on the line, once again Eli Manning chokes. Going 23 of 40 with a whole 257 yards. The two biggest stats about this game though, the NY Giants lost and Eli Manning threw 3 interceptions. That doesn’t sound like an elite or even a top five quarterback to me. As a matter of fact, Eli has thrown 9 interceptions in the last six games. Eli has already thrown 15 INTs for the season with only 25 TDs. Doesn’t sound like anything close to elite quarterback numbers. Hell, he only has a 91.7 passer rating for the season. So where in the hell are people getting this elite garbage from?
Don’t use winning a Super Bowl as a reason. That is NOT a valid reason. Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer were never labeled elite and they won Super Bowls. Eli Manning’s career stats sure are not good enough. Eli Manning’s career stats are: 58.5 completion percentage, 181 TDs/128 INTs, and a passer rating of 81.8. I have to know what part of those stats scream elite? The fact he barely completes half his throws? The fact that he has thrown almost as many INTs as TDs? The fact he barely has a 80 passer rating? Or the fact that his wide receivers bailed him and his sloppy throws out in a route to a championship? Enough is enough people, Eli Manning is not, nor ever will be, an elite quarterback in the NFL!!!
