    Finally caught up with last week's SI Mag - I puked!

    Eli Manning worthy of top billing as a "top performer"?  All because he got lucky on two heaved passes, arguably the luckiest heaves in SB history, and he gets this coverage?  If not for the Giants defense, he wouldn't have come close to being where he is and he was the MVP all for those two passes. He certainly was not MVP like the entirety of those two games.  Oh well, the mag will make for good fire starter material.

    He was MVP by default twice since no one on the Giants was worthy either time.

    I would of given the MVP to Justin Tuck in the 07 superbowl...but when was the last time a defensive player took home the Superbowl MVP? For the '11 Superbowl, he did make some plays, that pass to manningham was placed perfectly although he was going against one of the worst secondary in Superbowl History...

    I'll go with this.  He had a great game and put the Pats in terrible field position every time he punted.

    And Ghost couldn't seem to get a touchback on kickoffs.

    I hate Eli, but I have to give credit where due.

     

    In the first SB, he was the luckiest sob ever. In the grasp with forward progress stopped - no call from Mike Carey. 2-3 holds by the offensive line to helo him "escape" - again no call. A mortar shell of a pass that would have taken out Sgt. Hulka to end the string of luck. 

    Last year though, his pass to Manningham was a very good pass laid right in there. It was at a very high-pressure point in the game and he nailed it. As much as I dislike him, I can't take away the greatness on that play.  My only regret is that Bernard Pollard was not kicked out of the league in 2007. This would have given Gronk a strong enough ankle to make that diving catch in the endzone on the Hail Mary and would have actually beaten Vinatieri's kick as the greatest SB moment ever.

    As I have always said; without Wes' drop and Asante's drop, Eli would be considered a failure. Sometimes it's about what other people don't do rather than what you do do.

    Babe, all it takes is one play regardless of what happened before or even after.  That's what folks remember.

    Quit bagging on Wes. It was poor execution on the pass and the catch.

    Sorry, but I feel I have to correct you here. Cris Collinsworth said that is a catch Wes makes "100 out of 100 times." 

     

    60% of the time, Collinsowrth is right every time.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Crazy as it sounds that guy had a great game, constantly pinning the Patriots in poor field position, even causing the safety.
