  2. Very Impressed with Mahommes talent and composure!
  3. Congratulations Edge! Very worthy.
  4. Mike Vanderjagt. Crrihad msrahen
  5. In 5 or 6 years we will see. It's crazy to debate this. And it's crazy how people get so worked up over a possible or probable HOF induction, and crazy how people have such differing opinions, but we are all entitled to our opinions. I am more concerned and appreciative and respectful of Eli the person. If he gets in....great recognition. If he doesn't, well there are a lot of more important things in life.
  6. Eli didn't just play in those 2 Super Bowl wins. He was the MVP both times.
  7. Yes I had the Daniel part. No clue on last name
  8. I get so sick of hearing of people in power, with $$$ involved in various cover ups, of all sorts, protecting the guilty. Whatever happened to human decency, and knowing the difference between right and wrong and being held accountable? It was defaming religion...which we can't discuss here.
  9. Bottom line... He had a long career. He stayed pretty healthy and injury free for 16 years. He did great things on and off the field. Greatly respected among his teammates, competitors and peers. And a two time SB MVP. I believe Peyton stated there are only a handful in that category, so he is in the top 5 for SB MVPs. I think I read somewhere the "average career" for an NFL player is 4 years. Granted some last longer than others. Some only last a year or two. Some like Vinny over 20 years. But the overall average is 4 to 5 years, or somewhere there abouts. So 16 years, starting 220 consecutive games is also quite an accomplishment. Naysayers be naysayers. I'm in the group that has the utmost respect for him as a person first, player second. And I hope to see him in the HOF someday!
  10. Your stance has come through loud and clear. We get it. We'll revisit in 5 or 6 years.
  11. It shouldn't be. But then again, if popularity helps promote the sport, fills the stands, etc...
  12. Yes, that is part of it, of course. But he also made valid points as to why Eli should get in. Fun debating it in any event.
  13. Peyton disagrees with you: Peyton Manning 'drops the mic' on brother Eli Manning's Hall of Fame debate "To me, it's the time to look back and reflect. Everybody else wants to look ahead and have this debate. And I understand, that's just the world we live in. I know Eli doesn't think like that, and I don't think like that either. But I certainly have my strong feelings and opinions on it. When you're the Super Bowl MVP twice against the greatest dynasty of all-time, the New England Patriots, Tom Brady/Bill Belichick, and you join a list that includes Terry Bradshaw, Bart Starr, Tom Brady and Joe Montana, Eli Manning as the only (multiple) Super Bowl MVPs. "I don't really know what that term, 'drop the mic' is, but I guess if there was one. ... There really is no 'yeah, but' after that. That kind of ends it. But if you want a, 'yeah, but,' yeah, but he also started 220-plus consecutive games. He's sixth or seventh all-time in touchdowns. It wasn't like he just played those two seasons. "He answered the bell, played his butt off, won some huge games for his team. I have strong opinions on it, but I'm gonna pull and Eli and live in the present and kinda look back if you will and not look too far ahead, get too worried about it."

  15. Wasn't he MVP for both?
  16. He is retiring as the highest paid QB. He led his team to 2 Super Bowl wins, against the winningest (is that a word?) team Both times! The first one seemed like a miracle of sorts, but then there's the second one.. Everyone has an opinion of who and who doesn't belong in the HOF. My opinion is you either do or you don't. I get irritated with the way they jerk some players around in the process of it.
