    I find it pointless to give you indivisual explanations on each player. Just look at what they have done in the league and there is no way you can rank Eli higher than any of these guys.

    1. Peyton Manning
    2. Tom Brady
    3. Carson Palmer
    4. Matt Hasselback
    5. Trent Green
    6. Donavan Mcnabb
    7. Jake Delhomme
    8. Drew Bledsoe
    9. Kurt Warner
    10. Daunte Culpepper

    Look at every Qb here, all have exceptional completion percentages and they all read defenses with ease. I dont know how you can make an argument that Eli is better than any of these Qbs right now.
    1-7 is fine.

    -Bledsoe vs. Eli has been debated here so many times, ugh. Basically it comes down to the fact that Eli is on his way up, Bledsoe is not. Yes, Bledsoe is more accurate and may even have a better arm, but Eli has the moxy and pocket presence already that Bledsoe does not. I would, as would many other NFL fans, take Eli in a tight spot at the end of a game over Bledsoe any day of the week.

    -Kurt Warner? He was benched in New York because of Eli. He is more inconsistent than Eli and despite having monster weapons in Arizona, he can't put together a solid season.

    -Daunte Culpepper was one of, if not the worst starting QB in the league when he got hurt last season. I watched 3 of their films and the decisions he made were mind boggling at times. Add his torn up knee into the debate and you can't convince me that he is the QB that threw 40+ TDs. It seems to me that you are living in the past which is unfair because Eli has one full season as a starter.

      Kurt Warner is not inconsistant, he played in only 10 games last season and averaged 273 yards per game and completed an excellent 65%. Warner is one of the most accurate QB's in NFL history, he is far from inconsistant. He just has been injured a lot lately, when healthy he is better than Eli.

      I disagree with Daunte, He threw 8 ints in the first two games after that he started to calm down and was playing much better. It didnt help that he was being sacked every time he got the ball, didnt he get sacked 9 times in one game last year? I believe he was sacked like 31 times in 7 games, that is just mind boggling. Anyway, prior to injury he started to look more like himself again, he did finish the year completing 65% of his passes. Once again, i believe when healthy he is better than Eli.

      • The thing about the pundits on ESPN is whenever they talk about Eli Manning, they seem to always say he could be a good QB, but he has to put it together and some doubt him.

        But none that I've seen have ever said that Eli Manning has it all figured out and will be the best QB in the NFL next year. No one is saying that about Manning.

        So again, how exactly is he overrated if everyone thinks he's still a year away?

          Just read a little bit. I believe even putting Eli in the top ten is overrating him and that is where most people have him. He has nothing on any of the Qb's I mentioned in front of him. Therefore he is overrated. At this point Eli is nothing more than a fantasy football Qb, he gets you lots of yards and a TD here and there but, thats it. I dont think you can make a logical argument that Eli, deserves to be ranked higher than any of these guys.

            I would still put him above 8-10 on that list. I'd probably rank him exactly at 10. With Big Ben and a healthy Drew Brees ahead of him.

            • Eli being better than Daunte is laughable. No one could have played well in that situation in Minnesota last season. Eli is a good player and is on his way up, but he isn't there yet. I don't see him in that top 10 area, more in that 11-15 area.

              That is correct comahan

              • I could see why many would put Culpepper ahead of Eli. I wouldn't. More because I'm not a fan of Culpepper rather than what I think Eli can do. Culpepper is a turnover machine. He is lucky they don't account for fumbles in a QB rating.

                • -Bledsoe vs. Eli has been debated here so many times, ugh. Basically it comes down to the fact that Eli is on his way up, Bledsoe is not.

I would, as would many other NFL fans, take Eli in a tight spot at the end of a game over Bledsoe any day of the week.
                  And you would probably lose any day of the week, as well. This is one of the major overlooked factors from last year. Drew Bledsoe led 4th quarter/OT drives to either win the game or put his team in position to win it in week 1- at San Diego; week 3 at San Francisco; week 6 vs. NYG; week 10 at Philly; week 12 vs. Denver; week 14 vs. KC; and week 16 at Carolina. In each of these games, Bledsoe found himself in a tightly contested game (or way behind in a couple of them) and pulled his team around him to drive them down the field and get the winning points.

                  Yet what is the most prominent visual image in people's minds about him? The interception thrown against Seattle that set them up for a 50+ yard field goal in the ran and the slush that somehow Josh Brown drilled (his second of the game, the only such occurrence in the NFL in 06) as time expired to win it. This is the crap that Bledsoe has to put up with. Meanwhile, what do people remember the most about Eli? Probably the Denver game where he threw that last second TD with a guy in his face to win it, after they had been down the entire game. Funny really.

                  I won't start pulling out stats either, that would just embarrass you guys. I know that Eli is on the up swing, and that he very well might be a top QB in years to come, but there is no doubt that he has not currently done enough to deserve mention in the top 10, or probably even 15 QBs in this league. The stats bear that out, and if you want to use the "winning" argument, then you must also recognize that the combo of Byron Leftwich and Garrard are better than he is, because they won more games. Oh, and Kyle Orton is just as good, too.

                  Or you could just say, "You know what? Eli has looked great at times, and has a lot of promise, but I think I'm just going to wait for him to prove himself before I start touting him as one of the top QBs in the game". Then people would be much less likely to call you a homer. Here's my list of players that are better than Eli based upon what they have accomplished, given that they are healthy:

                  (in no particular order)
                  Peyton
                  Brady
                  Hasselbeck
                  Palmer
                  Bledsoe
                  Bulger
                  McNabb
                  Plummer
                  Brees
                  Green
                  Culpepper
                  Pennington
                  Roethlisberger

                  And then the players that are roughly on the same level:

                  Leftwich
                  Carr
                  McNair
                  Warner


                  I would list Brunell, based upon what he did last season, but he is D-U-N. He doesn't deserve to be anywhere near a list like this right now.

                  • Hm.

                    Can you show me where I say Eli is amongst the top QBs in the league? Saying he is top 10 is hardly the same as saying he is one of the top QBs in the league. What's with you guys and making things up to make your point seem stronger? If Giants fans were the only ones that felt this way about Eli, than you could be under the assumption that you have a point. But numerous fans around the league that actually watch Eli play more than twice a year tag him as a top 10 QB. I have been one of the more critical fans of Eli compared to some other fans and I know that he is still a ways away from being a top notch QB, but too many people fail to realize how solid he was in the first half until he got worn out and his targets started to get hurt.

                      He was pretty inconsistant all season, maybe you should check out his 05, game log.

                        He was CLEARLY better in the first half. He had a bad game against the 'Skins, but the rest of the first 8 games were from average to above average.

                        And who are you to talk about inconistency? Bledsoe was the model of consistency in the first half and you could use the excuse for Eli that he was a first year starter.

                          How so? Everyone knows Eli's completion percentage was bad. I'm hoping and I think it will improve this year but that isn't the point. Bledsoe's completion percentage was a lot better, but if that doesn't turn into more wins, more TDs, more yards, and less interceptions, then does it really matter?

                            So now you want to argue semantics, eh? There are upwards of 100 QBs currently "in" the NFL. Just being good enough to start marks you as somewhere in the top 25-35%, so that would be at least a "good" QB, which Eli is. But if you are in the top 8 or 9 percent of all QBs, that means you are among the best. At least it would mean that to me. Usually the word "elite" denotes the very cream of the cream, which has not been used. Anyway, regardless of what sophistrical manuevering you want to make, Eli is not among the top 10 anyhow. By the end of this season, he might clearly be. But right now there is no way that you can prove it. Stats don't show it. Neither do wins (unless we want to argue that Kyle Orton is in the top 10 as well). He sure doesn't have as much on his resume as some of these other top guys. I don't know how you would argue it.

                            Oh, and please, for your sake, don't try to patronize me with the "have watched him play" argument that all fans use to try and ward off critics from their players. I owned him in my experts league last year, and I lived and died by how he played. As you should know, I ended up dead.

                              The elite QBs are usually the top 3-5 QBs in the league, which Eli is not close to, enough said. And the Eli-Orton debate is one of the weakest debates you could think of because Eli had a combination of wins, clutch play, and stats. And I base my rankings on who I would rather have for this upcoming season and if that irks you, then so be it. But I'll take Eli over Warner, Bledsoe and Big Ben for the 2006 season.

This is the crap that Bledsoe has to put up with. Meanwhile, what do people remember the most about Eli? Probably the Denver game where he threw that last second TD with a guy in his face to win it, after they had been down the entire game. Funny really.

                                I won't start pulling out stats either, that would just embarrass you guys. I know that Eli is on the up swing, and that he very well might be a top QB in years to come, but there is no doubt that he has not currently done enough to deserve mention in the top 10, or probably even 15 QBs in this league. The stats bear that out, and if you want to use the "winning" argument, then you must also recognize that the combo of Byron Leftwich and Garrard are better than he is, because they won more games. Oh, and Kyle Orton is just as good, too.

                                Or you could just say, "You know what? Eli has looked great at times, and has a lot of promise, but I think I'm just going to wait for him to prove himself before I start touting him as one of the top QBs in the game". Then people would be much less likely to call you a homer. Here's my list of players that are better than Eli based upon what they have accomplished, given that they are healthy:

                                (in no particular order)
                                Peyton
                                Brady
                                Hasselbeck
                                Palmer
                                Bledsoe
                                Bulger
                                McNabb
                                Plummer
                                Brees
                                Green
                                Culpepper
                                Pennington
                                Roethlisberger

                                And then the players that are roughly on the same level:

                                Leftwich
                                Carr
                                McNair
                                Warner


                                I would list Brunell, based upon what he did last season, but he is D-U-N. He doesn't deserve to be anywhere near a list like this right now.
                                Putting Eli on the same level as Carr is simply unfair. Seriously...David Carr? Talk about someone who has to prove his worth...Carr has more to prove than Eli...David Carr? Seriously, that was being a little homerish on your part.

                                And Chad is not better than Eli...not anymore at least. The man cannot throw it beyond 20 yards. And I personally take Eli over Plummer anyday as well. Other than that, I have no complaints, but those I disagree on.
