Eli Manning, The Final Thread

Rate this topic

38 posts in this topic

Kid put up a HOF career. He was looking like a lessorJason Campbell toward the end there but I think Giants fans have much to be proud of. Eli will go down in history as the guy the greatest QB in this era couldn't beat. The guy who flat out owned Tom Brady and the Pat's dynasty. And did so, looking like a total goofball the entire time.

Eli was lights out in those games. He made clutch look like garbage time. His poise is up there with Joe Montana. The giants pass rush did make Brady human. But those game winning passes by Eli tho. That's what we all remember. No one will recall who caught them, just who threw em.

He gets into the HoF for total yards and TDs plus two SB MVPs.  Other than Giants fans most people already forgot how successful he was against the Pats in those games.

Lots of teams exit in the first round, 2 SB wins and MVPs more than make up for a couple early exits. Eli dominated the best team the NFL has ever seen, in the cap era.

Brady and Eli aren't on the field at the same time,

the Giants D beat the Pats.

and 2 remarkable catches ( not throws) and one dropped pass allowed the Giants to claim victory...

FACT

the Average number of points scored in a post season WIN for Eli, was 23.375

That's just over 3 TD passes per game. Pretty good considering the defenses you see in the postseason.

it was good in the 70s, but not in this era of offense.
