Average Manning

"I have to do a better job of seeing the clock just running down," Manning said.

After four years in the league, this shouldn't be an issue. I think most Giants fans know what Manning is by now -- an average quarterback. He can make some great throws and lead some impressive drives, but he is inconsistent throughout almost every game. His final numbers always look the same. How many great performances has he had, especially in a big game? It's unfortunate for the Giants, because a top quarterback could really roll offensively with this team and all their weapons.

Eli played SCARED towards the end of the game. He also played SCARED towards the end of the first half. You could see it in his eyes. Romo looks FORWARD to the same situations that scare the [email protected] out of Eli. The difference b/w a Super Bowl caliber QB and a mediocre one. Eli is the next Drew Bledsoe.

Eli's best game still has been his performance in their week one loss to Dallas. The Giants gave up way too much for his last name. 3 delay of game penalties in one drive, and at home? He looked lost. For the 3rd straight game, this undrafted guy out of Eastern Illinois has outplayed the highly touted, overhyped, number one overall pick. He is not the biggest bust to come along, but I'll bet the Giants' upper management wishes they could have that one back. Its not that they simply gave up Rivers, who hasn't had much more success, but didn't that trade result in Shawn Merriman ending up in San Diego too?

I am not going to add anything further Average Manning and Homer Jones expressed how I have ALWAYS felt about ELI. Just happens that we don't have Tiki around to bail him out. Jacobs and Droughns very solid backs, but you cannot label them game breakers and they are non factors in the passing game. Eli will never be better than what he is and the Giants will never be better with him as QB

Romo has won nothing. The first TD pass yesterday to Curtis he was past the line of scrimmage. for some mysteriouds reason there was no replay shown by Fox. The NFC is lousy the Patriots will have no problem with any NFC team in the Super Bowl including Romo and the Cowgirls.

The mysterious reason is that he was not past the line of scrimmage. Romo has won nothing? How about 14 games out of 19 starts? What has "number 1 overall" Eli Manning done? Romo was undrafted, unheralded, and underestimated. Unlike Peyton's handicapped brother, Romo has played his way to wealth, not cashed in on the family name. Does he have to wear a Super Bowl ring to be validated by you? I guess Mark Rypien must have been a better QB than Dan Marino then. And if the NFC is lousy, explain this statistic. The NFC is 20-20 vs the AFC this season! Your statement makes no sense! Take away the Pats, and the AFC is the weaker conference. Get some updated info, and the Super Bowl is played in February!

Must feel oftly embarassing to loose to Cowgirls. What's that make the Giants?? Loser Girls?

We will win our 6th SuperBowl title in February. Mark your calendar and "Get your popcorn ready, the shows about to start"!!
