It was ONE OF THE BEST seasons a QB has had in recent memory. I will concede the fact that Aaron Rodgers was far better last year (regular season), and, arguably, had a better season since he shattered records to such a gaudy degree. Rodgers' last two seasons were better than Manning's season last year (with 2010 being indisputable).

But, if you factor in playoffs, I would consider Eli's 2011 season the best of any QB in the NFL last year. I think there is a good argument for Rodgers, but when it comes down Eli playing in 4 playoff games compared to Rodgers' 1, and to see how well Eli played in all 4 of those games to the 1 mediocre game Rodgers had, then I would probably consider the guy with the Super Bowl MVP award as having the better season.

When you consider what Eli did, even from a statistical standpoint, it was a pretty rare season. Then when you consider how clutch he was, it tends to make last year a rare one and, in my eyes, one of the best seasons a QB has had in recent memory. In 2011 he threw (15) 4th QT TD passes, an NFL record. He tied an NFL record for most game winning drives in a single regular season with 8. He finished the postseason with 2 more game-winning drives in the biggest games of the year, making (10). (6) of them being comeback wins. He set the NFL record for most passing yards in a postseason with over 1,200 passing yards.

If that doesn't show important he was, and how great he was in late in game, in pressure situations, then I don't know what does. For 16 weeks, I'd say Rodgers had the best season of any QB. For 20 weeks, I'd say it was Eli.

I am a far greater fan of Rodgers than I am just about any player in the NFL. I have no bias in this matter.
