Eli overrated???

I am almost positive not a single person here said he was a good QB and no one would have expected this. Is this possibly the best QB performance in history during the latter stages of the season and the postseason...especially doing most of the damage on the road?
I am not trying to stir up trouble by calling people out, rather I am interested in hearing what people think of Eli now. I definitely see him in a different light.

He is no longer Peyton's little brother. He is now Eli Manning who has just as many rings as his older eliter brother.

Check my posts, I've been saying he would be a good qb from day one.

I am not pointing fingers, hell I was actually laughed at when I said I'd take Eli over Vince Young any day of the week and twice on Sunday. I have stood up for Eli on many occasions when others ridiculed me, but even I didn't expect this.

No, you're right. There's plenty of crow to eat on this board, not that I expect it to happen.

Re: Eli overrated???

overrated from what? he's pretty much who everyone thinks he is. not terrible, but not amazing. paired with a good defense he can win a few games.

there are other QBs that could have produced similar results that game, but he played well enough, and happened to be in the right place to earn himself a ring. good on him.

Should be an interesting Bang Cartoon next. Cant say the the Mannings are chockers anymore. At least not for a while. Cant call him overratted now.

Re: Eli overrated???

I thought he would suck in the superbowl and I was wrong. I think this is one of the great 5 game runs in NFL history, but nothing more. He still has been mediocre for the majority of his career.

And I think more than anything else this game proves that Jsarno is a genius.

Re: Eli overrated???

I've always been an Eli fan. He just needed/needs to grow into the Elite QB club. It's got to be hard to have Archy and Peyton as family members. I think now, people will give him a break, and I also think that's all he needs.

Re: Eli overrated???

Manning had a very solid postseason and not to take anything away from him but he's still a long way from being a top QB like his brother. Still, he got it done. Props to him.
