If you can't take the time to kick back and enjoy a lazy Sunday then tape or TiVo the game and fast forward through all the bs.

Wally, you have already proven that you have no ability to analyze baseball. Now you demonstrate that you have no clue about football. What makes Eli superior to his brother and all other quaterbacks (except Brady) in the game today is his ability to lead a drive with less than 2 minutes. Not only did he demonstrate his ability on the biggest stage, he has done it time and time again during other regular season and playoff games (remember the score before half time of last year's divisional playoff). Manning is at his best, when other QB's fall apart.

HACK!

What a nice spirit building article in one of the big NY papers two days before the biggest game of the year for the only NY football team left playing. Go read a philly paper I'm sure thier not ripping apart the eagles right now and talking trash about westbrook's mom. Why would newsday run an article like this, what happened to getting behind the hometeam?
Uh, because this is a newspaper, not a 10-year old's bulletin board covered in Giants stickers. Go read a Giants fan blog if you want gushing. Of course, I wouldn't advocate reading Matthews either, largely because he's a bad sportswriter.

As for the 5 QBs I'd rather have in crunch time? Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Hasselbeck, Tony Romo. Oh, that's 8.

On charged team time outs, the Field Judge starts watch and blows whistle after 1 minute 50 seconds, unless television does not utilize the time for commercial. In this case the length of the time out is reduced to 40 seconds. Again as I posted earlier for you Daniel P, the reality is that networks pay billions for broadcasting rights, in order for them to make a profit they have to sell ad space. If the NFL were to change it's rules and reduce the length of timeouts it would violate their agreement with the networks to provide time to sell ad space. It would harm the bottom line for the NFL because without the means to advertise and make a profit on their deal the networks will not pay as much for broadcast rights.
oic. I did not know this. I did not see your earlier response to this. Sorry. I read a few weeks ago somewhere that the NFL was studying the issue of this, to limit the quantity and duration of time outs, and bring the games in at under 3 hours. I forgot where I read it.

But thanks for your response.

I like watching Pro Football, but am not as knowledgeable about a lot of things regarding it.

PEACE !

IM glad Im not the only one to read this aricle and think to myself, "this guy doesnt know what he is talking about". Eli is the best 2:00 remaining quaterback in the league.

You obviously don't know much either. Your choices are terrible and you obviously can't count. Peyton, Brady, Brees, Big Ben, Hasselbeck, and Romo....That's only 6 rubberlips.

Gotta say he was a little bit better than that Carlina QB but not much
