It's great that Eli is getting all this unwarranted attention, when in fact it was the Giant's defensive line that won them the ring. He'll play down to his talent this year, and it will be hilarious.

I wouldn't say it was un-warranted, that play with Tyree was pretty amazing along with the ending TD. There have been a bunch of other QBs that rode a killer defense to a championship without having to do even that much.

I'm glad the guy at least won it once to maybe justify the hype around him having a famous last name. Whatever happens from here out is pretty much gravy. I got to think that he will loosen up and maybe play better, as there is not as much of an onus upon him.

I agree Magill, the d-line was instrumental in his escaping three sacks....:/

Manning deserved the credit, it's not like anybody ignored the d-lines role (Spagnolo's schemes were only mentioned 30000 times in the sports media world). Two td passes against one of the tougher defenses in the league in a short span of time.....and how many times did he convert on 3rd down?

That play was a fluke. The defense won the team the Super Bowl, Tuck, or any of the D-Linemen, should have been MVP. E. Manning is mediocre at best.

Seriously. You can disagree all you want.They wanted to run him out of town on a rail after he threw 4 picks in the Minnesota game mid-season. He was persona non grata around these parts until he got hot at the right time at the end of the year. The second half of the Buffalo game was really his turning point.

Bill, I am from "around these parts" and I remember how the media treated him; the general attitude was "wait till the end of the season" more so than "run him out of town".

I like how everybody has long narrative shit about this dude and his "turning points" as if his "turning point" isn't just every time the team is down and there's two minutes left in the half and they're on the road.

El Tomboto, Monday, 18 August 2008 20:46 (ten years ago) Permalink

If Asante Samuel didnt drop the easy interception before the Tyree play in the Super Bowl, we're looking at Brett Favre as a Giant.

Bill Magill, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 15:57 (ten years ago) Permalink

that wasn't an easy interception, iirc asante would've had to pull off a crazy marvin harrison type one-handed toe-tap kinda catch to get that ball

cankles, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 17:58 (ten years ago) Permalink

It was a catch a guy of his caliber should make 99/100 times. I bet ck, the local Pats fan, would agree.

Bill Magill, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 16:40 (ten years ago) Permalink

it looks like he jumped high and it skipped off his fingertips, it didn't look that catchable.

omar little, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 17:19 (ten years ago) Permalink

it bounced off his fingertips while he was at the highest point of his perfectly-timed leap, body fully extended. that would've been an amazing catch for any WR, let alone a CB.

really, you'd be better off harping on belichick for not taking the field goal on 4th and 14, or for not calling a proper 2-minute offense on the final drive (when, needing only a field goal and having a timeout or two left, brady just heaved it to moss a few times; game over.)

cankles, Wednesday, 20 August 2008 18:03 (ten years ago) Permalink

having just seen the clip, yeah, that was definitely catchable. he didn't catch it because he took a poor angle.

but that's why he's a db instead of a wr.

You know in a few years when Peyton and Eli are done playing football, there are going to be a lot of people that look back at these two brothers that played football with some wistful eyes.

Two brothers, both engaging (yet different) personalities and yet so damn successful in anything, let alone sports.

It just doesn't happen and I think it is going to take awhile for people to really register how unique a thing it really was.

Enjoy it now. In a weird way, I kind of had a similar feel towards the last Bulls run with Jordan and I remember it kind of well against the Jazz in that last series. He retired again and came back, but I kind of remember from that last series, you know, this is really great but it's almost done. The Manning brothers might go on for a few more years, but I don't think it is quite acknowledged how unique it really is, even though they are such big popular and really great athletes.

peyton just needs to pad those stats a little more

omar little, Monday, 7 May 2012 17:45 (six years ago) Permalink

I could see Peyton wanting to hang around for a bit to try and win a second title and then maybe get the alltime Yards or TD record. He'd probably have to play, be good and stay healthy 4 or 5 years to do that though, since Favre played into his 40s.

earlnash, Monday, 7 May 2012 23:15 (six years ago) Permalink

Even if Peyton doesnt get either of those records, and doesnt win another SB, he will still be more highly regarded historically than Favre.

Why do you say that?

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 8 May 2012 18:01 (six years ago) Permalink

In my opinion he is just a better quarterback than Favre. Same amount of SB's, but i just think he's better, and i think that would probably be the general consensus among cognoscenti going forward. Pretty sure I'm not going out on a limb here. I'd much rather have Manning in his prime than Favre

ok. i'm not arguing personally but it seems like sports culture starting with THE WORLDWIDE LEADER hold brett up as exemplar for the ages; would be kinda surprised to see that worm turn.

(Name Withheld to Avoid Hassle) (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 8 May 2012 20:30 (six years ago) Permalink

i think brett favre is about as disliked as roger clemens these days, both w/attendant comedic blundering re: extramarital misadventures, though at least brett seems to have kept it 100% age of consent.

omar little, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 00:07 (six years ago) Permalink

manning bros are genuinely beloved imo, favre is "a legend" whom no one actually likes anymore, not even GB pack fans it seems.

omar little, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 00:09 (six years ago) Permalink

i'd say peyton is/was a better quarterback, had a longer 'prime' than favre and was definitely smarter/made better decisions

otoh there was a window there in the mid-90s when favre was making throws i don't think i've ever seen anyone make (maybe because they were too smart to try). and, probably unfairly, i think favre's half-assed exit has diminished his, uh, legacy

mookieproof, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 00:24 (six years ago) Permalink

Favre really screwed up his legacy by hanging on going to other clubs. He played Ok, but he killed his ties to the home club Packers going to the Vikings then being such a whiny chump on the will he retire or won't he and getting busted flashing his junk on a cell phone. I think it paid off in the short run, sure...but I think Packer fans and cost him ALOT of unconditional appreciation from the fans that really backed him.

That said, really when Favre was cool was around the couple of years before the Pack won it all when he was tossing underhanded 20 yard passes for TDs and head butting people. Favre was so bad in the playoffs in those dome games, especially how many games they won in the regular season, it took like 5 or 6 failures and the Giants game the last time for the talking heads to shut up and finally realize their messiah kind of was sucking in the playoffs big time and playing like a gd idiot at points.

But in a way that kind of goes to show how deep those early years in Green Bay really were...especially considering how bad the Pack had been for more than a couple decades (and yet still kind of loved by the NFL fans overall). He did put that club, which is really unique back on the map and did so with flair.

Peyton is similar to Favre that he brought an old storied club the Colts who had been a laughing stock and moved back to being respectable. In game play, the dude is the complete opposite and his general on the field game play is kind of unique. Manning is the best general on the field probably ever in the history of the game. Marino had a better arm. Montana was just cool and played on a killer all around club.

earlnash, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 04:45 (six years ago) Permalink

Good post, i agree. Also take my opinion with a grain of salt, I'm a Bears fan, so I'm supposed to hate Favre.

it would purely be for the 2 super bowl wins, he really has nothing else on his resume and if pass stats continue to trend upwards that's be even more the case by the time his eligibility rolls around. phil simms prob has a more reasonable claim to the HOF and he probably isn't getting in either.

he could always win a 3rd champ of course. with how good the patriots look this year it would be a good season for the giants to win again.

Roberto Spiralli, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:56 (three years ago) Permalink

he's going in, no question. there's a reason a guy like joe namath, more or less the eli of his day, is in but guys like, idk, mcnabb or boomer esiason will never have a chance. dude's got two super bowls and will probably end up between 6th-8th in all-time passing TDs by the time he's done. probably won't deserve it though, unless he has an unexpected final act

k3vin k., Tuesday, 3 November 2015 03:46 (three years ago) Permalink

it's funny looking at old football stats, such a different game. like namath threw 173 TDs and turned the ball over 243 times in his career and he's a legend

Eli is in the Hall of Fame. The dude is Payton Manning's brother, won 2 Superbowls in New York and beat the Patriots in a couple of the most ridiculous ways possible.

NFL Hall is way more about the Fame than greatness, that's why they put in like a QB and WR and maybe put in a whole O-line every 20 years.

I've said it before, greatness in the NFL is a whole lot of luck. Tom Brady gets drafted by the Chiefs, he might have been great, but he wouldn't be Tom Brady you know now.
