View Full Version : Why all the Eli Manning love?

I know why... the New York teams get the reach-around just because they're in New York, but still... I swear every single week they show his highlights, and right after he throws a pick somebody says what a great year he's having. :noidea:

That and he's the only Manning playing right now. He kinda gets the love by default. He better watch out though, Flacco may start complaining that Eli gets too much love.

Eli has gotten the "Manning" pass his whole career. He has a little Peyton in him as he sometimes plays lights out. But he HAS to have a screw lose or two because he can go from Peyton to Grossman between halves. It's as if there is a "idiot" switch that turns on during games. You ever listen to him talk?

This. Period.

He HAS gotten a pass for his whole career. He's been an average-to-above-average QB for his entire career, but every time he completes a pass, the announcer teams and highlight replay teams make it seem like Jesus himself has just completed that throw.
I don't by any stretch think he's a bad QB at all....but he certainly doesn't warrant the ridiculous hype and exposure that he gets on the ESPN's of the world. He's definitely not in Ben's league.

Well his team is in jeopardy of missing the playoffs again. Along with their coach may lose his job for missing the playoffs.

Because he's a...Nevermind, it's obvious.
