This was an NFL poll. For some reason Tom Brady got 70% and Eli got 30%. So i wanted to try this again...lol.

I would definitely chose Eli. He proved himself in the Super Bowl last time and definitely proved it again in the playoffs this past year...what do you think?

Can you go wrong with either of them? To take your example of the last SB, People forget Brady led the Pats down for the go ahead TD with less than 2 minutes left. I would point to Mannings Year this year more than the SB Drive. (That was a series of miraculous play... and 1 drop INT)

Is the Giants pass rush BETTER than the Ravens?? (asking)

About the same, each had 48 sacks on the year. The difference though is that giants get their pass rush out of their front 4. While Ravens bring extra rushers to get their pass rush. Giants also have a better secondary which generates more turnovers. Tom Brady played below average ball against the ravens D and the pats only won because the defense stepped it up. But that was against Flacco and a run first offense, not Eli and one of the more dangerous passing attacks this year.

Wait, what?!

The Giants' secondary is FAR worse than the Ravens. Look at which one gave up more yards. That would be the Giants' secondary.

He was also wrong about how the Ravens get pressure. The Ravens got more pressure without blitzing and had the most success without blitzing than any other team this year.

Eli.

He pulls "stuff" out of his rear at the best times. He has that "OMG what just happened" magic at times.

Hello...Hail Mary vs. Packers this postseason already? That IMO is when it was clear to me destiny was on the Giants side and not the Packers.

Depends on which team they're on and who the opposition is.

I like both of them in the fourth quarter against each other's defenses. The SB will probably come down to the last possession like before. They both have the weapons on O and O-lines to get it done. Moreso for Brady, Eli's only real go-to guy is Cruz, but they have a better run game than the Patriots.

(Technically the Patriots had it last a few years ago, but it was something like 20-25 seconds left and Brady missed Moss twice. One time he was covered anyway, the second could have been a TD if he hit him.)

Yet they didn't get much pressure at all on Alex Smith.

True. But, then again you go into a Niners game worrying about the run and Davis. I believe SF receivers had one catch in the entire game?!

I also think Smith was pretty craptastic on third downs in that game.

Then again, this is Alex Smith we are talking about people.

    • I just couldn't do it....I mean, I respect his career and talent...but I just couldn't....... its like inviting Satan to the church fish fry, putting him in a suit and tie doesn't make him a better person, he is still the devil after all lol 
    • Anybody know the name of the song at the end? diggin the drum riffs
    • This.   Reich is a good play-caller. He's certainly not perfect and, if I could cite only one reason that the Colts lost to the Bills, it would be the play that he called when he went for it on fourth down. I agree with the decision to go for it, but the actual play-call was garbage imo.   With that being said, he's also called some great games, and some made some great calls in the clutch. No-one is perfect and he certainly seems aware of his own shortcomings. That's half the battle.   I hope Reich continues to call the plays, and continues to grow as a play-caller.
    • He's definitely not a top 5 cornerback at all..   Alexander, Ramsey, White, Howard, Humphrey, and tons of others have been way better than him this year
    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons.
