Eli has never had a full elite season, how is he elite? the man threw 25 INTs 2 years ago, missed 2 of the last 3 postseasons, led giants to 9 wins in weak division. He's really good right now, if he keeps it up I'mm put him on my elite list but playing well for a few games in jan/Feb doesn't make a QB elite. Elite ones are consistently great, not just in the 4th qtr, not just in january. I'd rather have Eli in a big game or big moment than almost any other QB but he's still not elite.
ur really telling me no one can make an argument on how those 3 qbs can be better than eli manning now? i understand u like eli manning, but the main reason u think he is elite is bc the giants have 2 superbowls with him, its not his great regular seasons hes amassed over the past decade or so.
big ben in his career has won 2 superbowls, appeared in 3, his overall record as a starter is 83-36, and now that the guy has a formidable wr group, hes looked real legit. also, hes prob the best qb in the nfl at keeping the play alive
drew brees since joining the saints in 06 has won a superbowl, has had 4 11 plus win season, 5 if counting his charger days, and has made the saints a contender year after year, and has also put up much better numbers in doing so.
peyton manning i think speaks for himself, and id take him as an overall qb anyday as he can make any wr look good.
im not saying these guys are leaps and bounds better than eli, im just saying its deff debatable, its not a no brainer that eli manning is better than these guys.

u know who is as far from elite as can be? TONY ****ING ROMO. GUY BLOWS.
The elite one the last 4 weeks has 2 TDs and 4 INTs
coming off an elite performance of leading the Giants O to 13 pts(7 were on bogus calls so he didn't really lead them to any TDs) a week after getting 6 TOs and only leading his O to 17 pts.
yep he's elite, the elite QBs always have stretches like this
As a lifelong fan of the Miami Dolphins, it's hard enough being in the shadow of a team like New England all the time.
But it must suck something awful to be in the shadow of a team in your own city.
I can't imagine having to defend my own team in such a way just to stay interested in them.
If Mark Sanchez played as well as Eli does, he'd be the GOAT QB in Jets history probably. Yet you still hold out hope for Sanchez in New York.
I still defend Sanchez to a degree, but that dude is D-O-N-E in New York. He needs to get out while he still has some talent left. Real talk.
Meanwhile, in Miami, Ryan Tannehill looks like the second coming of Dan Marino.
