The defense was outstanding both games, the offensive line did their job, but you're basically saying the entire team is going to carry him with is just an absolute joke. I know you've gotta defend your boy Eli, but get real man. That is just a piss poor excuse for an argument. You act like the rest of the Giants team is ******. Last I checked, you have the #1 RB in the nfl, currently.
The truth of the matter is that San Diego has played a fairly easy schedule so far, but Philip is still top 5 in QB Rating, Completion Percentage, and Int's thrown. That tells me he takes care of the ball, he completes a high percentage of the intermediate passes that gets you first downs, and he's played neck-and-neck with the best QB's in the game his first 5 games. I'm in no way saying he's going to be the next montana, don't get me wrong.
Manning is top 5 in Completion Percentage, Yards Per Attempt, and TD's. That tells me he throws for a better percentage in the 15-25 yard area. Oh, and the fact that ny giants rb's have 2 rushing td's means they throw it up for plax, toomer, and shockey quite a bit. LT has 7 rushing td's to go with philips 7 td passes.
