EliFAn,
You've got to realize that ELI instills no confidence in Giant fans or players. How long are we going to make excuses for this guy. HE WAS THE NUMBER 1 PICK FOR GOODNESS SAKE!! He is not an elite quaterback and he is not reliable to make plays when his team needs it the most. Look at his "Aw Shucks" expression...would you want to got to battle with him as your general? Giants must draft a QB and start making plans to replace ELI. He doesn't come up big in big games, he doesn't have star power, and he doesn't inspire his teammates...It seem that Tiki had it right all along!
So 2 back to back trips to the playoffs isn't good enough for you huh?? Funny how I didn't see this when they went on a 6 game win streak. He doesn't inspire his teammates? are u kidding me? These guys are professional athletes It's not his job to get in everybody's face these are grown men getting paid Millions of dollars to play a game they should need no motivation, You say he has that Aw shucks look, well then what look should he have that will satisfy you? The stupid Tony Romo smirk? will that make you happy? That is his personality that is who he is.. It's just so silly the things that people write in here, you have no Idea what drives him or what burns inside of him but,still you take shots at him..

Giants are cry abies. lets face it Eli, sucks under pressure. He remind me of Vick, he gets so confused when he has to hurry up. This is a big problem.....Trade his ass and get a stud quarterback.

As a native NY'er for 80% of my life, now living in Dallas due to a job relocation, I want to commend all you guys whose entries reflected the basic "big picture" point: Eli is not the man who will bring the Giants to great heights and is not even in the top 5 among "money" quarterbacks in the league today. Unfortunatly those who think he someday will be are just delaying the possibities of another great Giant team.

Well, it's not like many of thought it was a sure win. We would have to play our best to win. Considering some mistakes that were made we were pretty damn close. Now if we can learn from those mistakes and move on who knows.

6 and 3 is not a bad record and is someone told me we would be that before the season started I would have been happy.

Go Big Blue!

Hey Bill from Dallas, we are still 6 and 3 even with what you say is a bad quarterback.

I don't think he is a great quarterback but I think he is still capable of leading this team.

It's better to talk trash after the game is over than before the game has been played. (as in we will wipe that smile off his face)

I know it's all ELI's fault.
Well the 3 delay of games I will
put on his shoulders. The missed
tackles by the D not so much..
You can say all you want about
how bad Eli was yesterday.
But Eli didn't let Owens run by
him twice. Eli wasn't holding
on the kick return. Or the running
play that got called back..
6-3 is not bad.. Now we have to
put this behind us and win the next
2 games to put some heat on Dallas.
Everyone says Eli doesn't show up
for big game, I don't agree. It's
our D that has let us down in all
the big games in the last 3 years..
I agree Eli is no Payton, but Eli
is not Dave Brown.

Simply put: DALLAS IS A BETTER TEAM!!
TONY ROMO IS A BETTER QB THAN ELI. THE GIANTS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEIR RECORD SHOWS....THEY HAVE NOT BEAT ANYONE WITH A WINNING RECORD

The Giants showing up for the game was a big mistake.

dallas is just a touchdown better than we are... i feel the loss of Ward in the running game was a big faactor as we could have kept running the ball and therefore dallas would not have had as many chances...you know sooner or later madison being one on one with owens is going to hurt you....also we blitzed and got in on romo but could not get him down and he nade a play each time

Actually, the outcome is exactly what I expected. The pass rush and all of your blitz packages were ineffective against a good offensive line and smart qb. That was the point I was making, but you obviously needed me to spell it out for you. The Giants did well shutting down Witten, but that did nothing more than allow Owens and Crayton to run free. You also say the Cowboys running game was shut down?? 24 carries for a 3.4 average is pretty effective if you aske me. They ran the ball just enough to keep your sorry LB's and DB's up close, which would have had a much better game had the "nasty" d-line been able to pressure Romo. It starts up front no matter who you play. The Giants knew coming in that if there front four couldn't pressure on Romo it was game over.
As a Giant fan I must agree, No pressure was the Difference in 2nd half. Our secondary is not good enough to cover that long. Dallas won the battle up front on both sides of the ball and that my friends was the game. Not Eli.

Face it Giants Fans: Ernie Accorsi blew it big time. Giants will never win a super bowl with Eli Manning as QB. He is only a better back-up. He can't escape a rush, he can't run worth shit, and he is not all that good a passer. Draft another QB, or if he becomes a free agent, sign Anderson from the Browns.

What Eli lacks cannot be taught, desire. He doesn't have a chip on his shoulder that drives him.

<quoted text>3.4 Yds a carry is impressive to you? Hmm Jacobs averages 5.0 yds a carry that makes no sense. And in case you didn't notice the Boys were keeping a TE a lot of times for Max Protection. Let's be real here The Cowboys Knew they were gonna attack the secondary and they did a great job, It's up to the DB's to stop them. If you gonna play man to man you better Jam the receiver. They executed better than Giants. Period that doesn't mean they are Better!
I never said impressive, I said effective. If you manage to gain 3.4 yards on every play you get a first down every time. Simple math and the old saying of 3.5, 3.5, 3.5... Move the chains!! As far as the Cowboys protection, they rarely were in max protect. When a TE stayed in they were in single back formation and there were always at least 3 guys out on routes. When Witten stayed in either Fasano or one of the backs was out. You need to pay attention more and face the fact that the Cowboys are a better team no matter where or when they play. Ten point win in Dallas, 11 in New York... What is it going to take a 15 point win at a neutral site??

What I know EliFan is that in four years as the Giants starter he has accomplished nothing. Giants mortgaged the future on this guy and even YOU cannot say he's a top ten quaterback in the NFL. People talk about Vince Young and his not so pretty stats, but how many times have you witnessed Vince come up big and win games for his team vs. the times Eli has done it in a longer career. It's not personal, he is not what the Giants expected and never will be, period!
