I hate to be the hater, but Eli sucked (sponsored by the player haters ball)

It kinda pissed me off that Manning got the MVP, I thought that he was the luckiest sob EVER for not losing that game. It seemed to me that on every throw he made in the 4th quarter, (except for one or two) he seemed to lean back, close his eyes throw the ball and pray that his reciever would catch it, and the overthow of Burress almost lost the game. I will give him props for fighting though, he got out of a few sacks where he should have been eating dirt. Even though I thought he should have thrown the ball away instead of scramble, I'm not going to complain about that point too much.

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

By no means am I a Giants fan or an Eli fan for that matter but, he didn't do that bad, He threw one pick which was completly Steve Smith's fault and at the end of the game he was breaking would be sacks and threw a perfect TD pass to Plax to win the game. If he didn't deserve it who did.

David Tyree. He caught the first TD and made the unbelievable crucial catch on the winning drive.

Are you Nuts there is no way he sucked - He got the job done under huge presure and that last drive will go down in SB history. I agree about the MVP award, that should have been shared by the Giants D Line but hey he's the QB

In case you didn't notice, he was pressured on just about every play. Not even Tom Brady did well when there was someone in his face.
Eli performed very well, and even though he had some poor plays, he held it together long enough to have an 83 yard drive. Call it luck if you want, but an 83 yard drive is not luck. One or two plays were luck, the rest was skill. Eli came into his own this year.

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

I thought Manning did a decent job, particularly when you consider that he was under constant pressure. His ability to avoid the sack on 3rd down and throw for the 1st down on the game-winning drive alone was damn impressive.

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

Eli played a good to great game. Factor in all of those drops plus his escape from that sack to make the long pass to Tyree- great game, deserved the MVP, case closed.

I don't in anyway think he sucked, however he did NOT deserve the MVP.

Eli sucked? A bit hyperbolic, don't you think?

He wasn't great, but he made plays when needed and he was far from horrible
