If you read my entire response, you will see that I mentioned the escape. I still dont understand why people are so quick to jump on that specific play. Eli's play was escaping, not the throw. The throw was more of a hail mary than anything. If you want to highlight a throw of Eli's, why people dont talk about the second SB with the Manningham catch. That was as close to a perfect pass as you can get in that situation. It also required one helluva catch. That play can easily go down as one of the best in a SB due to the fact that it took a great throw as well as a great catch just to be a successful play.

Also just to add, I never once said Eli sucks. I dont consider him elite due to his inconsistency, but to say someone is not elite does not mean that to say that they arent any good. I consider Eli to be in that tier just below the group that includes Brady and Rodgers. He has played games where he played like Brady, but he also has his fair share of games where he played like Rex Grossman.

Edit: Actually it was a post or two earlier where I mention that escape, not the specific post you quoted.

Eli over Peyton, in any situation?????

Ya, no thanks.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

People were asking who would be a replacement for Lorenzo should he leave.

I'm gonna say it, I'm not a huge fan of signing/drafting players who are sons of formerly great players. Just because they're related doesn't mean we'd be getting Steve Tasker 2.0. Case in point: Jarrett Payton.

Although there are exceptions to your argument, I agree with your essential logic: just 'cuz Daddy was a great player doesn't mean you will be, too.

Nailed exactly what I was thinking. I didn't say there were absolutely no exceptions AW.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Oh and we had the 9th best kicker last year, who didn't even play the whole season. Wow. Imagine how good he'll be if he plays the whole year.

Rob Jackson's St. Paddy's Day from Funny Or Die, RobJackson, Amir Arison, Jake Gibson, TimCairo, Christin Trogan, and ESPN UNITE

Why Rob Jackson is in a funny or die skit? I don't know. But I did get a chuckle out of it.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

I hope Kai stays on target this year. It was nice to have a consistency in the kicking game, still wouldn't mind having a dedicated KO kicker though.

Jason La Canfora ‏@JasonLaCanfora
Getting back to Dumervil, smart to take deal, sacrifice $4M, still play opposite Miller. Big $ wasn't out there for him and market crowded

Mike Klis ‏@MikeKlis
Hold on, contract not filed in time. Elvis Dumervil has been officially released
