  1. 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.
  2. Eli didn't just play in those 2 Super Bowl wins. He was the MVP both times.
  3. Yes I had the Daniel part. No clue on last name
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Your stance has come through loud and clear. We get it. We'll revisit in 5 or 6 years.
  7. It shouldn't be. But then again, if popularity helps promote the sport, fills the stands, etc...
  8. 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.
  9. 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 Bradsh

  11. 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.
  12. For now. There's a new generation coming up. I understand Cooper's son Arch is quite the athlete. Stay tuned!
  13. I kinda expected this. Happy retirement Eli.
  14. I believe right now he is the best QB in the league. However, I dont think he's seen the likes of the SF Defense. Should be a good, fun game. SF has a complete team and I still see them winning it all, but I think it will be close.
  15. I picked SF to win it all halfway through the season. Can't change that now! Side note: I think it will be a good, fun game, no matter who wins.
  16. Things are always changing, and the game is always changing. No question about it, it's a different game than it was 40 years ago, even 20 or 10 years ago. No secret that Peyton is/was/always will be my favorite. I still never really feel the excitement I felt when watching him master a game! There's nothing quite like it. Having said that, I am very impressed with Mahomes, and quite certain I would feel that same excitement if he was on our team.
  17. Doing what they think is working to win. Conserving his arm for SB? Heck who knows
  18. Okay, so it's not over yet
