1.) Yeah, fragile Eli is the exact opposite of the brother. Eli is only 12th among active QB´s in Y/PP (20th in rating), while her bro, Nervous-PO-Peyton, is 2nd (3rd in rating) to?...Alpe d'Huez said:1.) Eli fans love that stat. That plus the 2 SB MVPs (on iffy stats). But as I've said before, Eli is not Peyton, and hes not Brady, Brees or Ryan either. If Eli were traded for someone like Ryan Fitzpatrick, or Sam Bradford, each team would likely have the same record. He's not bad, but he's not as great as his wins would indicate.
2.) Carolina is definitely a team for 2013-2016 or so.
3.) I do not favor expanding the NFL playoffs.
4.) I questioned how good Foles would be too, but while many kept insisting how much talent Vick had and his potential. I scoffed at that and questioned what he had ever done in his NFL career? No one can answer, because it's nothing. He isn't any better than a 3rd round rookie thrown into games mid season.
Yep, Mr. Romo!!
While Peyton´s teams almost every year are pre playoff SB-Favo´s, Eli´s teams are seldom if at all considered as SB-Contenders. And yet due sheer luck, Eli has one more ring in less time.
And yes even "his" SB wins were unimpressive. Scoring 17 and 21 points, while the other SB scores 10% percent more points compared to the yearly regular season. It´s no secret that the defense performances and incredible luck and misfortune by opponents got him the rings.
2.) fixed for you...
3.) Me too. It´s just another trick to milk the fans. What a BS. Soon we´ll have 7-9 teams as SB-"Champs". Welcome to the CFL/NHL: Completely meaningless regular seasons...
4.) Vick had an amazing improvement since he played as PHI starter. Don´t know what happened this year, back to his ATL "form". I can´t explain it, but you are right anyway. This year was bad.
OTOH he had some stellar performances in 2010 and 2011 thanks to his powerful arm...
