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

eli didn't suck, though he wasn't amazing. tuck should have gotten that mvp though (6 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 FF, lots of pressures).

I just can't believe I live in a world where Eli is a Superbowl Champion

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

If not Eli, who else would you have given it to? He didn't have the greatest performance but I think that play when he broke out of the sack and heaved it downfield is going to be one of the most memorable in SB history and possibly also his career.

I'm just happy to have won $300 bucks last nite (3rd Q and final game, blocks) and most importantly having Monk and Green in together!

I agree.


2 4th quarter TD passes to beat the Pats...that alone is worthy, but yes, he played great all night, from that first 10-minute drive to the last play.

Eli definitely didn't suck. This thread sounds like sour grapes.

He wasn't great and yeah that prayer to Tyree was lucky, but hey shit happens. But overall he got it done.

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

Bottom line Eli did enough to manage the game and not throw it away and has a nice ring to show for it, HOW WOULD anyone call that he sucks? The Defense played GREAT! What a game, I'm glad the underdog NFC giants got it done!

The catch involved luck, but the simple fact he was able to get a pass off instead of getting more grass stains was not luck.

My Brother in-law is a G's fan and he thought Manning was the MVP but myself I thought it should have been Justin Tuck. The guy was all over Brady the entire game. The D-line set the tone and won this game for the Giants.

Makes me kind of mad cuz the Skin's could have drafted Tuck a couple of years ago. The guy is a beast.

I won't bother wasting time reading other responses to your initial post, but this has to be one of the more ignorant threads that I've seen since joining this forum. Eli led not one, but TWO 80-plus yard, 4th quarter drives against a team for the ages, and perhaps the best defensive game planner ever in Belichick. Are you saying that the great throw to Boss was luck? Tyree made a sick play on the ball that Eli threw to save the winning drive, but Eli made one of the greater escapes in Super Bowl history to make that play possible. If Brady makes those two plays to save the Pats, then we're all saying that he's greater than Montana, so let's give Eli a little credit here.

I agree - should have been Tuck or Umenyiora (yes, I had to look up the spelling on that one).

We must have watched different games.

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

No one can give Eli too much credit for the last TD toss. I would have stood a better chance of getting on a plane, flying to Arizona, suiting up, and making a play than the Patriots DBs on that one (they were nowhere near Burress -- how can that guy have gotten so open?).

Eli is serviceable. He threw up a bunch of jump balls, many off his back foot and under pressure, and had every break go his way. In my mind, he will always be a whiny bitch for having his daddy come rescue him from the evil clutches of the San Diego Charges when he was drafted.

It's too bad that the Giants won. SB losers tend to be doormats the following year, and I would like to have seen that happen.

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

Eli managed a remarkable game, and made the plays when it counted. He led them on the game winning drive, and deserved to be MVP. Besides, if the quarterback has a decent to excellent game, it's almost a guarantee that he is MVP.

If not Manning, Justin Tuck with his 6 tackles, 2 sacks and forced fumble should have been MVP.

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.

Not sure I agree here. I think the Super Bowl win gives everybody a huge boost of confidence, and I can see those receivers shaping into a formidable group once they all get on the same page with Eli.

In fact, all of their "no name fodder" wideouts are basically young, so they probably have nowhere to go but up. Steve Smith has the most promise, and David Tyree showed he can come up big when they needed it most. Add that to Amani Toomer (who was the one receiver who gave Champ Bailey fits) and Plaxico when he heals up, and I'd take them over the Redskins receivers any day.

Their O-line is good enough, while Jacobs, Droughns, Cedric Ward, and Bradshaw get the job done rushing.

None of them are 'Superstars' per se, but they just proved that you don't need superstars to win the big one.

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

The Giants' 'O' had their moments this year. It think they are pretty solid across the board, and with that defense that's all they need.
