yumpizza: Let me clear that up:

8. Eli Manning New York Giants: 4,933

9 Tony RomoDallas Cowboys 4,903


Not sure what point you're trying to make with that stat. Hopefully it's that EManning & Romo are basically about the same because that's a 30 yard discrepancy. Not even worth mentioning if you're trying to make the assertion that Eli is a better QB than Romo.

Then there are these key areas where it's really not so close...

Regular season completion percentage:
Romo: 64.7
EManing: 58.6

Interception percentage (per 100 passes)
Romo: 2.8
EManning: 3.2

Yards per completion
Romo: 7.9
EManning: 7.1

Career 4th quarter passer rating
Romo 101.9
EManning 84.6


/Dallas O-line still sucks -IMO - & while slightly better than in '12 will still be a problem in '13.
//Frederick and Smith appear to be the only ones that can really play.
///Selvie looks like a good find... and outta nowhere.

yumpizza: Perhaps that's because Eli has two farkin' Super Bowl winning drives which overshadow a few regular season games?


I don't recall the Giants winning the Super Bowl in 2012, the year I'm talking about in the post you quoted and the year Eli blew more comebacks than he won and threw for more INTs than TDs during his "comebacks".

Rings don't mean you deserve credit for everything and blame for nothing. Eli was bad "in the clutch" last year. He deserves credit for his previous successes, but they don't make you immune to criticism for your failures.

IAmRight: By to, you mean "three feet behind on a 10-foot route."


Hard to say what was going on there. I don't really hold it against him - not sure what the call was. Sort of like Romo's pass to where the receiver was supposed to be on a read and getting a deflected pass picked down to the 1. Which sort of gets lost here - the Cowboys defense managed to hold off a 1st and 1. Seriously.

Dafatone: Thing is, Eli had a fantastic game last night.  450 yards on 42 attempts is great.  4 TDs.  He threw 3 interceptions, which is bad.  But that last one bounced right off a receiver and into a defender's hands, so it's really hard to blame him.  Wasn't another of the interceptions like that?  I can't remember.


Can you imagine if the shoe was on the other foot in this game and the Cowboys lost a 36-31 game after Tony Romo threw 3 INTs and 4 TDs for 450 yards? Would we say the same thing about Tony?

Spoiler alert: no.

TrainingWheelsNeeded: would like Bryant to get more looks


Bryant was getting a lot of attention from the defense and seemingly any time the ball came his way he was wearing a CB like a cape.

Slow To Return: There were 12 other games played in the NFL yesterday ... why isn't there a thread for each one of them also?


there's this revolutionary thing called "Sunday Night Football", where the premise is they take marquee teams and televise that one game nationwide in prime time, and check this out, it is the only game on at the time.  You should check it out sometime.  It can be kinda cool.

Because everyone saw this game.

Prevailing Wind: To be fair, if you get paid to catch balls for a living and a quarterback throws a pass to you which hits you in your hands and which you then subsequently flop into the (much more competent) hands of the other team, the interception and ensuing pick six really isn't the quarterback's fault.  Its yours.


Hey mr. Rodgers.

RickN99: That was an ugly game.  Dallas is happy with a win, but given that the Giants turned it over 6 times, it should have been a blowout.  Even with the massive assistance from the Giants offense, Dallas barely held on.


That was garbage time.  The game wasn't as close as you think it was.
