I'm all about SBs but remember Trent Dilfer, Jeff Hostetler, etc have won super bowls. I agree that ELI is a top 10 QB as I've said before but I don't consider him in the Brady or PM class because those guys give u the same great play week in and out. Both never miss the playoffs and both are always high TD/INT ratio

Re: ESPN Unveils 2013 Jaws’ QB Countdown List

Jaws is turning into another ESPN cartoon character...

It's more to create headlines and debate, if the list didn't have any crazy placements no one would be talking about it. If he didn't slight RG3 a little bit, no one here would care. Debate and arguements give it alot of attention.

Brady no question , Eli's play off record is better then Peytons that why I put Eli ahead of Peyton.

dellusional...but I get it. I think if you polled the entire football fan nation you find 95% of fans have Peyton over Eli and it you polled just Giants fans you probably have 75% Eli over Peyton.

Peyton will go down as a top 5 QB of all time. Eli will always be the lil brother who played with the better defense. Sorry bud.

As I said back in post #81 of this thread , that it depends on what criteria is being used for the list .Stats for other positions might determine the best , kickers , receivers ,etc but as for QB's and coach's its winning championships that matter a fact the NFL network has been pushing as of late.
If you look at the overall body of work then I can understand why HG28 is putting him in the same class as Rivers and Stafford. To me they're comparable QB's, with Eli getting the slight edge because of his playoff success. However, Romo is clearly behind Manning simply because he hurts his team with stupid mistakes in the most crucial moments. Dalton is not yet in the discussion.

Wow, giantone, try reading what you're quoting. I said all those other QBs just mentioned are MORE RELIABLE than Eli. Again you cling to SB wins the giants won as much because of their defense playing well at the time, because when it basically comes down to it, that's all you got. But if you're going to quote me, could you at least reply to what I said?

Pop quiz for you giantone: Out of the QBs mentioned in this thread, which QB led the league in interceptions for a season TWICE. Go on, take a guess. Bonus hint: His career stats are inferior to Philip Rivers in just about every way.

Hey Chico23231, thanks. Your post helped me understand at least a little "giantone logic".

I looked at giantone's post above and wondered, how can he rate Brady so high but not Peyton? At first I thought, well he's just "taking shots" at Peyton's playoff record to pump up Eli. But then I saw your post about "better defense". Both Brady and Peyton have established themselves as elite, all-time-great QBs by their body of work throughout their careers. (Brees elite also, Rivers to a lesser extent, Eli simply hasn't.) But Brady didn't win Superbowls by playing the best of his career, he won early in his career when the Pats had an excellent defense! Well, look at how the giants won SBs. So OF COURSE giantone loves Brady, and tries to make Eli out to be like him, while downplaying Peyton, Marino, Rivers. Guys who built a much better career individually but didn't have luck to have the defense that Brady and Eli's teams had. At least that much makes sense now! Thanks!

Same one that got his second Super bowl MVP award a few years ago .

If you're going to do the pop quiz thing , do it on a stat that I didn't post already.

And Joe Flacco won the last SB MVP. QBs get that award
if they just play well. So giantone, do you consider Joe Flacco elite? If not, explain.

Re. INTs: And yet you still need reminders how unreliable, how streaky Eli is. Another reason Eli is not elite.

Oh, and nothing to say about how Rivers career stats are better than Eli's in just about every way?

Re: ESPN Unveils 2013 Jaws’ QB Countdown List

As far as elite qb's go, (my definition of elite being consistently plays great), I don't think Eli is in that category, because he plays above average most of the time. But I think we have to concede that Eli is definitely clutch, because he played a huge part in two SB wins and has also won countless games by leading game-tying or winning comeback drives in the 4th quarter (as we should def. be aware of after last year). And for me being clutch is just as important, if not more so than being elite. But I also feel that being clutch/elite don't necessarily go hand in hand. To use his older brother as an example, Peyton is elite, but not necessarily known for being clutch.
