theatlantic

But Eli has been terrible this season. The NFL ranks him just 22nd among the league's 32 starting QBs. He has thrown almost as many interceptions, 11, as TD passes, 12, and his 7.3 yards/pass average is his lowest in four seasons. If he loses on Sunday, it's very likely the Giants won't make the playoffs at all and Eli may find himself following in the footsteps of Jim Plunkett.


Interesting take. I thought Aaron was still around 27 or 28. Guess he is starting to get up there in football years. He's got at least 5 years of top level football in him tho, imo. Barring injury of course. (Not to jinx him.)

07 1-1 (NFCCG L to NYG)
08 0-0 (Did not make playoffs)
09 0-1 (WC L to AZ)
10 4-0 (SB)
11 0-1 (Div L to NYG)

If we don't get a playoff win, maybe the seat get a little warmer (room tempreture?). This game is not a "must" by any means. nobody is going anywhere as long as we are winning 10+ games per year.

Absurd. Brett Favre had his statistically best year at 40. Peyton Manning is having arguably his best year at 36. Tom Brady is 35 and so far threw 24 TDs vs 3 INTs, which is pretty freaking incredible.

For Aaron or Eli to be on their way out, um, no. [-(

The article confirms my thoughts that one should not go to the Atlantic for sports insight. Nothing of substance is pointed out in the article besides a bunch of stats that can be found elsewhere and the final line is just plain wrong in my opinion:

" I'm not implying that this is the last hurrah for either Manning or Rodgers, but it is likely that the loser of Sunday night's game isn't going to win much of anything this season, and football won't be getting easier for either man as he gets older."

I question whether the author actually watches NFL football.

Aaron will hit 29 December 3rd this year. He didn't start a game until 2008, so basically he's on his 5th full year of wear and tear. I can see him (and from his words he agrees) playing to his early to mid 30's. Although, Aaron did say he doesn't see himself playing at age 37. I suspect he has 3-5 more 'top level elite' years in him. If not because of his chip on shoulder attitude that will grow when people say he's too old an lost it ... if not because of that, because the NFL will probably be flag football by the time he's 33.

I thought it was interesting how poorly Eli has been playing.

Giants could be vulnerable. IF we can protect Aaron.

Common wisdom holds that to be regarded as one of the all-time greats, a quarterback must win at least two Super Bowls.


Dan Marino (as the author mentions)
Brett Favre
Steve Young (as a starter)
Peyton Manning
Drew Brees
Fran Tarkenton
Dan Fouts
Warren Moon
Jim Kelly
YA Tittle

All in the hall of fame. All have at most 1 title. All are in or will be in the Hall of Fame and some of these are arguably the greatest to play their position.

Quote:
Both will be looking for a win Sunday to shore up their unexpectedly shaky shots at the playoffs this year.


Umm, both the Giants and Packers entered today leading their division. Whichever losses will still hold a playoff spot

It's kind of a farcical, sensationalist article.

What Zombie said. This article is complete garbage and its sole intent is to stir the pot in the hopes that someone mentions their article on PTI on Monday.
