While I couldn't believe prior to the game he had a shot at a ring, he went in there and got it done. Under extreme pressure he answered New England's TD.

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

Why do people "hate" Eli? He's just not a "hateable" guy.

He led the game winning drive for a touchdown in the Super Bowl against what many people have said was the best team ever.

What more do people want from the kid?

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

Stats weren't that bad for Eli. Did a pretty decent job with the exception of the one INT and throwing short passes way too hard at times. He deserved the MVP for sure. He outplayed Brady IMHO and got the job done when it counted the most. That is more than I can say about JC.

OOOOOORRRIIIIIGGGGGHHTT. gigity.


But seriously folks (wait, thats Joe Walsh), Eli was decent IMO but the MVP really shouldve gone to Tuck. Eli was mediocre compared to others in the SB.

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

once again,Eli was so-so, Tyree made 3 catches that were not very good thrown balls,
toomer saved one from going out of bounds that was a catch,and the game winning touchdown was to a all alone Plaxico after the move he put on the pats defender I did not see anything great about his play he threw 2 dropped int's by Pats defense,if Samuals don't take his eye off the ball,and miss it Patriots win. The MVP should have gone to the defensive line-hands down no question ask,THe Plaxico interview after the game first thing out of his mouth was can you give it up for that defense. He knows who the MVP was and it sure wasn't ELi.

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

Asante Samuel had a chance to win the game on that sideline near-pick. I tip my hat to Eli and the Giants for beating Goliath, and I do think he or Tuck were great MVP candidates for the game. I'm just not yet sold on Eli Manning as an exceptional starter in the NFL. He's got to show me consistency throughout a regular season. But you can't take anything away from how well he played in the playoffs. Good for him.

I agree. Do these people go to the Special Olympics and boo?

Sorry, that was bad.

I saw Eli at the entrance to the kentucky derby a couple years ago. There was a small crowd there waiting for celebrities. Saw Spike Lee, dude from Montgomery Gentry, Jermaine Dupree & some others.

This one dude in the crowd would yell something out every time one of them walked up. Most of it was good natured if not funny. Then Eli walks up w/his girl, and dude starts heckling him - "Eli, you'll always be a Charger!"

It was kind of funny but he sounded so serious. That's the only reason I can think of that people hate on Eli so much, that he didn't want to play for SD. J. Elway had a similar experience when he didn't want to play for the colts, but his career turned out ok.

Cause he's not Peyton. Peyton could be the best ever, and people expect Eli to follow in his footsteps. (which he is obviously not) Eli is Eli and people need to learn to stop such high expectations. Eli will never be Peyton.

People commenting that Eli did not play well are exactly why I am sometimes ashamed of fellow Skins fans... you cannot see anything objectively.

Considering the pressure of the game, the inexperience in the Superbowl, the litteral pressure he felt from the Pats DL -- and teh fact that he won the game for the giants. How can you not say that he didnt play well?? or wasnt mvp???

If you can give an MVP to more than 1 person -- absolutely give it to the D line. But you cant do that. Eli was the obvious and only choice and it was deserved.

Plus, Eli has that whole "mouth breather" look going on.

I just can't take the kid seriously sometimes.

While Tryree made a great third down catch it was Eli who some how got loose ran around the line and got the pass off. If he does not break loose from that sack they do not convert that third down and probably give the ball back to the Pats and a good chance the game.
