  1. Marcus Mariota FACTS

    Sort of, except worse: Dalton's last 32 starts - 53 TD passes, 27 INT. Mariota's last 33 starts - 31 TD passes, 23 INT. ...And it's also fair to mention that Dalton's top two targets, Green and Eifert are almost always unavailable, yet he's still able to best Mariota's production by a pretty wide margin...
  2. Giants Bench Eli, Name Daniel Jones Starting QB

    Gotta laugh at the irony of this statement.... Never mind those two super bowl wins, and subsequent MVP awards; Forget the fact that he's top 10 All-time in passing yards and TD passes.... Yeah, what did the bum ever do... No, to be honest. But what do you think about Warren Moon being in the hall? IMO, Moon was good, not great; no hardware; turnover machine; substandard playoff record; no all-pro; no MVP... yet he's in, and nobody seems to have a problem with it... And this is exactly what I was saying in an earlier post. Folks are quick to credit the Super bowls as 'team victories', but in the same breath knock Eli's W-L record. The team wins; Eli loses... love how that one works..... Ok, disregard the MVPs if you want. How about his play in the playoffs leading up to the Super Bowl; He was brilliant... From 2006-2016 Eli was firmly a top 10 QB. This whole notion that Eli was mediocre his entire career is a joke... And so what if the Super Bowls are his only argument for the hall... You can probably make the same case for Aikman, Bradshaw, and Namath; Look at Aikman's regular season stats; Do you think he'd be in the hall without the rings? Eli didn't have Emmitt and Irvin...

    Jags - Could be a possibility, but let's be honest, they aren't going anywhere. Defense is nothing special, no playmakers on offense. They're committed to Foles, who should return around week 10; I'd like to see what they have in Minshew, who at least hasn't been a train wreck so far, so. Eli would simply be putting himself into a worse situation... On a side note, as much as everybody hated Bortles, I find it comical that the Jags' first two games without him, they're 0-2. Bears - Bringing in Eli would pretty much mean that they are done with Trubisky, who I admit looks clueless right now, but it's too soon to give up on him... Colts - I actually like this idea. Although he's doing ok at the moment, they aren't going anywhere with Brissett... Eli could at least get them into playoff conversation. Bucs - I like it. Winston is a proven foul-up; it's just a matter of time... Steelers - I want to see what Rudolph can do for at least a couple weeks. If he's a mess, maybe try to bring in Eli. Saints - No way. Brees will be back in a few weeks, so it really wouldn't be worth the trouble. Beyond week 4, the Saints have a pretty favorable schedule. All Bridgewater and Hill have to do is manage to win 2, maybe 3 games while Brees is out.... What about Carolina? Newton looks done, and is supposedly injured. Rivera has got to be feeling heat. Honestly, I'd like to get a look at Will Grier, but I think Eli can get that team to the playoffs...

    I, nor anyone else here ever suggested that Eli was an elite QB.. This is just another example of the piling on. Everybody knows Eli was not a MVP or All Pro caliber player, but on the other hand, it's total BS to say his whole career was mediocre... Win as a team, lose as a team. You're insinuating that the Giants were a stacked team being held back by Eli all of these years, which is completely false. When you look at some of the rosters this team has fielded over the years, it's almost a wonder how Eli was even able to accomplish what he has.. And? All 3 are shoo-ins for the HOF... So you belittle Eli's accomplishments because of the lack of team success, yet Archie never had a winning season, never went to the playoffs, and has a 35-101-3 career record, but according to you, he was better than Eli.... good job. Unlike famous NY QB Mark Sanchez, Eli won those championship games, then went on to win the Super Bowls, where he was named MVP on both occasions. But yeah, you make a great point.... Then, after nationwide ridicule, the Giants realized what an asinine decision that was, and put Eli back in the following week, and at the end of the season, everybody involved was fired. Again, very thoughtful point..... So what exactly does this mean? Are you saying that all of these guys, particularly the ones highlighted, are all better, and all had better careers than Eli Manning, simply due to one stat, of which most people have no idea of the formula... I have to hand it to you, it almost looks like you put some effort into your post....
  5. Giants Bench Eli, Name Daniel Jones Starting QB

    He was a legit top 10 QB for a while; no, he was never great or one of the elite, but to say he was always mediocre is just not true... It's amazing how when Eli's career accomplishments are listed, folks are quick to chalk it up to the team, but when we talk about the Giants' lack of success, everyone turns and points to Eli. I laugh because anyone who follows the Giants knows they've have had o-line issues for years, that seemingly never get fixed; they routinely field one of the league's worst defenses, but you never see anyone getting benched. Before OBJ, they've never had great receivers, unless you think Victor Cruz was great. Before Barkley, his last decent RB was Tiki; roughly a 10 year period featuring a committee of average running backs. So we can crap on Eli all day long, but it should be fair to note that he hasn't been part of great teams over the years, and in my eyes, it's pretty impressive what he has been able to accomplish. That's just not true. He was borderline top 10 for most of his career with a few bad years sprinkled in... You're essentially saying that there was roughly 20 QBs that were better than Eli, most years of his career, and that's simply not accurate. Give some examples. And not a bunch of nonsense like being a 35% passer when down by 10 points and throwing to the left....
  6. Giants Bench Eli, Name Daniel Jones Starting QB

    2 rings 2x Super Bowl MVP 4x Pro Bowl 7th all-time passing yardage 8th all-time passing TDs
  7. Week 2 GDT

    He is a rookie, on a bad team; not sure exactly what people are expecting...
  8. Week 2 GDT

    Then spoils it by being an idiot.... Vikes still trailing, but Diggs feels the need to pull off his helmet and start jawing with Packer fans....smh
  9. Week 2 GDT

    He only had 3 packer linemen draging him down.... yeah, how did he not get out of that...
  10. Newton has been a below average QB for most of his career, but as usual, he'll get the benefit of the doubt, his failures will be blamed on someone else, and his obvious ineptitude as a passer will be downplayed or overlooked completely....
  11. TNF: Bucs v Panthers

    4th and a foot, and you call some stupid trick play; you have one of the better RBs in the league, and your QB is bigger than most LBs.... nice call...
  12. TNF: Bucs v Panthers

    Cant wait to hear about all of Cam's phantom injuries....
  13. TNF: Bucs v Panthers

    As I've said many times before, I don't know how anyone can watch Cam Newton, and actually come away impressed. Winston is no prize either, but Jesus....
  14. Odell wears 350k watch during game. Stupid or not?

    I always thought there were rules against wearing jewelry on the field. Anyway, no, it's not a big deal. Let the tool bag wear his stupid watch; I hope it gets broken so we can seem him cry again...
