Manning: I'm In Class With Tom Brady


Recommended Posts

Face palm ... Eli , Eli. Come on bro, come back down to reality.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall when Peyton reads this to witness his reaction! lol

Btw, these two teams play each other in November. Score predictions anyone? I'm gonna say Brady puts up atleast 5 td's!

I like Eli and I am not sure why he would say this . . . maybe a family thing, the Mannings v. Brady point . . . that is, TB is on my level, so therefore PM>TB, or basically my brother is better than TB . . .

I can certainly see Eli saying that someday he could be on TB's level . . .

I think for me, among a few things, TB is prone not to make mistake where Eli, until he improves, is prone to make mistakes, specfically INTs . . . TB last year with just 4 INTs . . . and in the Pats 3 SBs years, TB had the lowest INT/attempt percentages since Bart Starr . . . so just on that level not sure why Eli made his statement . . .

but there is still time for Eli to improve . . .

At first, I thought it was Peyton saying this. I thought "Yeah, he is in the same class as Brady, but it's kind of weird for him to come out and say it". Then I saw it was Eli, all I could think of was "Dude, no"

yep..same here.

Me thinks the OP topic title tried to snooker us :)

With the weapons that Eli lost in the off season, and the gross number of picks last year, he shouldn't be comparing himself to anyone just yet. There's only one Manning who can make a statement like that... and Archie retired years ago.

I think Eli would need to do a lot of improving to be able to make this type of statement.

Sure he's good . . . but not quite in the same class yet.

Major faux pas (embarassing statement) imo.

alot is being nice lol..He needs years of improvement to even be close

    • Curious.  Why would that be considered a massive development?  Was Ballard there as well?
    • Base hits make great things happen, as the Brewers are showing. My goodness. I know too early to get frustrated but this has been a continued issue. Seems like it’s home run or nothing for some of these guys. 
    • Hi Folks   We're looking to do a new mock, likely starting this weekend or Monday.   It'll be a bit different than previous drafts. In short, our goal is to make it quicker and smoother. We're also doing a lottery of sorts (to allow folks a chance at getting the Colts) for team selection.   If you read the following rules (which we may tweak before the start), we need to know two things. 1. Are you willing to be the GM for 2 teams (in the case we don't get 32) 2. If you miss your draft window, do you want pure BPA or Need/BPA (you will supply your need priority once you have your team). You can decide later.   If you do want to play, please follow this thread so you don't miss out on updates.   Basic guidelines/rules We'll do a lottery for team selection. One round per evening. Two windows each evening (likely 7pm and 9pm, or 8pm and 10pm). One 1-16, the other 17-32, with a mini-break between 8/9 and 24/25 to catch up things if needed. The picks will be scheduled in 5 minute increments, so you'll know exactly when you need to pick. GMs can make their picks earlier than their scheduled times (if previous GM has picked), but the next GM's clock will not start until the scheduled time (you'll never lose your scheduled window) If you miss your scheduled pick time, you'll fall to the mini break or end of window. If you're there you can make your pick then, or the we'll make your pick for you based on your selection of PBA or need. To keep it simple, no personnel for pick trades while the draft is happening (only pick for pick trades during). You can make personnel trades for picks but they must be fully negotiated (with other GM) and submitted one hour prior to the start of the draft (first window). We'll have 3 people managing the mock. One in the general pick thread moderating and updating the draft order and picks, one in a trade thread moderating and approving, and one updating a real time big board so you know real time who available. @chad72 @NFLfan     I'll be posting links for draft order, draft capital, team needs, and big boards a bit later.
