thecpt: I don't get all the hubbub over this Eli kid. From the looks of it, he's just there because of his name.
Yankees Team Gynecologist: thecpt: I don't get all the hubbub over this Eli kid. From the looks of it, he's just there because of his name.Not sure if serious...that said, I went from thinking Eli was mediocre, to thinking he was better than Peyton, and back to thinking he's good, but not great. You can't be great if you're that inconsistent. Giants fans should give him a lifetime pass for what he's already done, but he's no Peyton.
dickfreckle: The Mannings are a cool family. Archie, who still lives in New Orleans, used to frequent a restaurant I worked at, and once the kids were in the league he and all the sons would often hang out at an upscale bar I managed. These guys are exactly as humorous and genuine as they appear on screen. And if you don't harass or interrupt them, they'll gladly discuss football with you.
Arkanaut: Thing is though, you can't afford Peyton AND a defense like the Giants had in '07. Eli was just good enough for the job but just bad enough to not cost the team too much.
phyrkrakr: Sorry, I don't care how good they are, it's still idiotic to give your kids last names as their first names. Cooper and Peyton are both last names, dammit.
