Can I Get Some Love For Eli?


Peyton and Eli fan

Recommended Posts

Eli was ridiculed terribly when he said he was a top 5 QB in the preseason. Well, he's hanging right in there in 3rd or 4th place for QB ranking and has the #1 rank in the 4th quarter.

Hope he can keep it up because the next stretch is brutal: @NE, @sanFran, vs. Philly, @Saints, vs. GreenBay

Yikes!

lets hold off in crowning eli anything til he faces some stiff competition like his upcoming schedule

I will say that Eli is one of the best playing right now, but he put himself in the company of his brother and Mr Brady, two HoF "legends" of the game. It's not even necessarily that I disagree with him. It's that you don't expect a professional to make that comparison for himself, of himself. It seems dubious but I do not recall the context of his remarks.

He was asked - "do you think you are a top 5 QB in this league" He said, "Yes, I see myself as a top 5 QB". What's he supposed to say, "No, I stink and can't play with the likes of them"?

lol....don't cha love how the media warps things. I never heard the exact quote in context. The story I remember reading about that was saying "Eli compares himself to Peyton/Brady".

Yes, Eli is a Top 5 - 6 QB. I don't fault him for saying that.
