    Eli Manning for Philip Rivers trade....

    let me hear your thoughts....


    I love how Chargers fans and NFL pundits think the Chargers got such a great deal. I say, give it time my friend.

    Elwayesque is how I would describe ELI.... The comebacks... amazing. Its nervewracking, but exciting. People love to hate the guy, but he is something special.




    Not gonna elaborate on my thoughts, but I am wondering what YOUR thoughts are? Do you like Merriman, even through his Steriods and showboating on the field? do you think Rivers will redeem himself from his piss poor playoff outing? will Rivers be able to perform once Tomlinson isnt performing as he did this season?


    IDK the answers, but I am interested in your opinion.

    And theres something about Eli. Elway, Favre, Brady, and now Eli has it....

    I don't think its close that the Chargers got the better end of the deal. We got 3 Pro Bowlers for Eli including the scariest pass rusher in the game Shawne "Lights Out" Merriman.

    Can't argue with that.

    Cam Cameron>Hufnagle/Gilbride
    Marty > Coughlin
    LDT > Tiki. Thought I do believe Tiki had a better 05 than LDT, LDT owned the 06 season.
    SD Defense > Giants Defense

    The Giants offense asks too much from Eli at this point in his career. I don't even think next year will be a good year with Killdrive. I wish they could get Cutliffe up here for Eli, but that won't happen. It's still too early to judge them IMO. A lot of AAA QBs didn't excel until years, and I believe that Peyton lead the league in INTs as late as his 4th year. People were calling for Simms head while he was in NY early in his career, even until he was 30 years old, but he turned out to be one of the best QBs in Giants history.
    Yeah, the most important thing I see in your argument there is that it's to early to judge. Of course I think Rivers will develop into a better overall QB, and you think Manning will be the better one. It's too early for any of us to know for certain who will be right. As far as the trade is concerned tho, I don't think there's any question who got the better end.

    Meh...I was going to jump into this argument but the threads old and it'd be pointless.
    It's the offseason, why not get into it haha, which side would you have taken ;)

    I know it isn't a playoff win or anything, but it was pressure.

    Anybody who watched the game, knows really played well against Seattle. Despite at least a half dozen drops, he threw for 180 yards and two TDs. And this is in terrible weather. This is game where I realized Rivers had ice his veins too. Against Cincy was amazing but this proves a lot more.

    Besides look at Hasselbacks stats for the game. PR outplayed him significantly.

    Oh I agree too, that was one of my favorite games out of Rivers all year, he had a rough start though, so some people consider it a poor game.
