[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Giants Fan's Take: No Witchhunt Needed : He won't answer either question. NE handed the last 3 games away on a platter to the Giants. Put it this way, if I am a Giants fan and I see how my team beat NE, I would just admit it. I;d say thanks very much, I've just removed the horseshoe. lol What did BobbySu say here yesterday? His Giants co-workers said "thanks for handing us 9 points"? Yep. If Eli Manning is a HOF QB right now, then Jim Plunkett goes in tomorrow. So does Roethlisberger. They're not going in until Plunkett goes in.

The media experts (Simms, Aikman, Jaworski, Mariucci, et/al) claim the top teams are so evenly matched that these games are invariably decided by mistakes, lucky bounces and so on; to wit - BOTH Championship Games, as well as the SB.
As far as the comparisons of Eli to Plunkett, etc, NONE of these guys brought that up; the consensus has been he's in the active top 4; even the Boston media thinks so; so your opinion is of the amateurish, fandom based, extreme minority type ilk.
A record 15 RS 4th Q TD passes and 8 4th Q comebacks in 1 season, plus the brass ring, and now multiple SB MVPs, which has been done by only 4 others, all HOFers or HOF bound, is nothing to sneeze at.
