Yes he did. He managed that drive, and that should have some sort of label like Elway has "the drive". Maybe the drive part 2. I mean who you going to give it to? Tyree? He only had 3 catches for 43 yards and 1 td. While he did come up with that amazing, best play ever, catch, 2 plays don't deserve an MVP. I heard someone suggest the DLine...well that's fine and dandy, but it's most valuable PLAYER, not players.
Did Eli have a clear cut MVP game? No. But he was the most valuable player on that field today. He stayed away from mistakes (the int was not his fault)and had 2 critical TD's. He deserved it.

Well that stuff that you call lucky is what got Favre a bunch of MVPs and a ring. And everyone calls him one of the greats. As for the overthrow on PB is what Burress' "fault" for cutting short. In the end Eli threw the ball where he though PB would be and PB wasn't there.

Statistically he had a good night, even with the 1 INT that was not entirely his fault.

Re: I hate to be the hater, but Eli sucked

MVP shoulda been Tyree. That amazing helmet/hand catch was amazing!

(If I don't sound too totally coherent I've been drinking a bit tonight so uh yeah. )

Re: I hate to be the hater, but Eli sucked

absolutely blows my mind how people can talk bad about his play after that showing. he led the giants to arguably the biggest upset in history. how can anyone hate on him after that last drive?

After winning a Super Bowl against the Pats, I wouldn't mind being kicked out of the NFL.

Your boys did great, Coggs!

Relax dude, geez, clearly the guy is nuts. Eli played a hell of a game. The Tyree catch was a great play, but did you not notice Eli escaping from 3 guys right before he threw the ball? Give me a break, Eli won the game, classic performance. If you want to kill him when he plays bad (which I have) then give him some credit when he plays well (which he did). Eli deserved the MVP, he was the clear choice, and if you missed that I think you might have been paying more attention to the wings and beer instead of the game.

Re: I hate to be the hater, but Eli sucked

Honestly thought it was going to go to someone on the D-line. Not sure off the top of my head, but they had 5 sacks I think and Brady was on his ass A LOT.

not to mention they would not have been in the SB if it were not for his long string of strong play through the playoffs. give credit where it is due. can't wait for next season.

Yeah, but when a QB leads a game winning drive with under 2 minutes left, its kind of hard to pick anyone else. The d-line did get to Brady a ton though. I bet he took more shots tonight than he did all year. Guess he's human when he doesn't get protection ... great gameplan, great execution.

Re: I hate to be the hater, but Eli sucked

And let's be honest, The Giants talent-wise are pretty thin offensively. Besides Burress they have:

2 mediocre to decent RBs with little to no value in the passing game
no discernibly good TEs with value besides blocking
1 average WR who caught the droppsies this year and scares exactly no one in the league
a bunch of no name fodder type WRs
a decent offensive line.

Not the makings of a great offense and any success had with this group can be attributed to Eli's play mostly.

I will disagree with you on this point, I thought Eli played a fine game and he was much more deserving of MVP than Peyton was in last year's Super Bowl. Eli has progressed a lot this postseason, and it showed. You could've counted me in on the believers that Eli didn't have it in him to take the Giants 83 yards down the field to score the winning touchdown against an undefeated team, but he did it, and that drive will be remembered as one of the crowning points of his career, unless of course, this becomes the first of many high points.
