From WalterFootball's coverage of the Senior Bowl. FWIW, he has already been harsh about Love's field vision. And he has him ranked as either 6th or 8th out of the QBs in the draft.
In the one-on-ones without a defensive or offensive line, Love seemed to throw the wrong route on one play, tossed the pass far behind Notre Dame's massive wideout Chase Claypool on another, and had a few other throws on which his accuracy was off. On the flip side, Love made some excellent passes, including a pretty corner post route to Ohio State wideout K.J. Hill after he got open against Wake Forest's Essang Bassey. Love had another nicely located pass to USC's Michael Pittman Jr. after he got some separation by turning vertically versus Utah's Terrell Burgess.
Love had some rough moments in the team scrimmage, including plays where he didn't see the field well. He also threw a ball up for grabs in the deep middle of the field like it was a wounded duck and was fortunate a defender could not chase the ball down for an interception. Love has a very good skill set, but his field vision is a crushing weakness at this time. It will be important for him to show improvement there over the next two practices to help his draft stock.
Congrats on a great career Eli, you and your team won 2 SB's over the Patriots including beating an undefeated Patriots team in 2007. If a QB wins 2 SB's or more as a starter they belong in the HOFame IMO. 12 QB's have won 2 or more SB's:
Terry Bradshaw (4) Made it
Joe Montana (4) Made it
Troy Aikman (3) Made it
Bart Starr (2) Made it
Bob Griese (2) Made it
Roger Staubach (2) Made it
John Elway (2) Made it
-those 7 are in the HOFame
Obviously these guys will get in
Tom Brady (6)
Peyton Manning (2)
Ben Roethlisberger (2)
-that will be 10 in
Jim Plunkett is the only QB in NFL History to win 2 SB's as a starter and not be in the HOFame after he was eligible. Eli Manning will get in and should.
Any good QB can get hot in a certain season or even a game manager can just do everything right to win 1 SB. A QB that wins 2 as a starter though is no joke. Do it twice, that is special.
