Re: Eli Manning and the Dreaded Underrated Word
Eli Manning is a top 10 QB in this league. Nothing more, nothing less.
He does seem to have quite the large number of haters but when it comes down to it, he played fantastic the entire playoffs of the Super Bowl run. Give the defense all the credit that you won, but you can't win without good offense. He showed up big when it mattered.
No, I'm not saying he is an elite, top-tier QB, but he is a damn good one.
I think the fact that he plays in NY and his whole draft day shenanigans have to do with the haters. You can't deny he is talented as f*ck
I'd take him over a lot of QBs people love - Ryan, Bradford, Vick, Stafford, Romo, Schaub.
Rodgers, Brady, Manning and Brees are better, yes, but I'd put Eli right there with Rivers and Roethlisberger.
