Let the overreactions begin, the man has maybe one Hall worthy season and now b/c he got hot and had great defense and receivers he's a HOFer. Can we calm down w/ that silly talk? If he keeps this up a few more years maybe but he's not close to a HOFer right now- Not even in the discussion.
I'm not taking anything away from Eli, he's a very good QB now but all this elite and HOF talk is just silly.
And while superbowls are obviously the ultimate goal of every team/player each year, teams win superbowls, not players. if peoples only claim as to why eli manning should be in the hall of fame is due to 2 superbowls, that weak. he needs other credentials also. jim plunkett also has 2 superbowls, hes not in.
if eli continues to play like he did at the end of the season for the next 5-6 years consistently, he will no doubt be a HALL OF FAMER.
Eli Manning is Derek Jeter.
Peyton Manning is Alex Rodriguez.
You realize that Eli carried that whole offense right? their running game was one of the leagues worst and their defense was inconsistent. Eli is top 5 QB
1. Tom Brady
2. Aaron Rodgers
3. Drew Brees
4. Peyton Manning
5. Eli Manning
I don't care if he's a hall of famer or not. It's irrelevant to the discussion at this stage in his career b/c he's only 31. All I care about is the present and the present is where he's a two-time SB champion.
