    Re: Cry Eli, Cry.

    I never liked Eli from day one. I read an interview with Ladanian Tomlinson, and he basically said alot of the charger players (including himself) and personall do not like him(Eli). From day one he came into this league using his father's and brother's name to get what he wanted. Eli is a baby and will always live under Peyton's shadow....Thats why last years Giants game was one of my all time favorite Viking games. Seeing D-Sharp pick Eli apart!

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Reading that article was a waste of time. Peyton isn't exactly known for his attitude and ability to get the team motivated either. Eli needs improve his arm and quit his habit of overthrowing his receivers. His attitude isn't the problem.

    Yeah, I agree with you 100%.

    I understand if you people don't like Eli because of what he pulled at the NFL Draft, but I promise you he will be very sucsessful in the NFL.

    He has everything he needs, good coaching, plenty of weapons around him, and the athletic ability.

    Hell, I wouldn't mind if he was our QB.
    that's right.. eli is good, taking his team to the post season and what not. leave him alone, it's not like he's on holdout. just says he's a bit stressed and a got a bit of an attitude against the new york media, who wouldnt
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    Re: Cry Eli, Cry.

    Eli is a punk. Yes, he is talented, but he considered himself a star before he was even drafted, which is shit. No rookie, no matter who their daddy and brother happen to be, is bigger than the NFL itself.

    I love to see him get picked or sacked, just because he needs a few lessons in humility. Once he humbles a bit, he may very well be the best QB in the Manning family.

    Archie Manning (from Wikipedia):
    After college he was selected in the 1971 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints with the second overall selection. The Saints were at that time – and throughout Manning's stay there – one of the worst teams in the league, and Manning's supporters have often said that this was the reason that his career was less successful than it otherwise might have been; while his critics have put a considerable amount of blame on him for the team's lack of success. It seems very likely that if sacks had been an official statistic throughout his NFL career, there would probably have been more recorded against him than against any other player.

    Manning played for the Saints for ten full seasons, none of them winning. In 1972 he led the league in pass attempts and completions, and led the NFC in passing yards, though the team's record was only 2-11-1; in 1978 he was named the NFC Player of the Year by UPI, despite the team's 7-9 record. That same year Archie was also named All-NFC by both the UPI and The Sporting News.

    Manning was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1978 and 1979. He went on to conclude his career with the Houston Oilers (1982-83) and the Minnesota Vikings (1983-84), where the teams posted a collective record of 6-35. He ended his 13-year career having completed 2011 of 3642 passes for 23,911 yards and 125 touchdowns, with 173 interceptions. He also rushed for 2197 yards and 18 touchdowns. His 2011 completions ranked 17th in NFL history upon his retirement.

    Ryan Leaf sucked. Heath Shuler sucked. I don't put Archie Manning into the same category as those losers.

    Where did I mention Leaf and Shuler?

    LMFAO

    .Manning played for the Saints for ten full seasons, none of them winning. In 1972 he led the league in pass attempts and completions, and led the NFC in passing yards, though the team's record was only 2-11-1; in 1978 he was named the NFC Player of the Year by UPI, despite the team's 7-9 record. That same year Archie was also named All-NFC by both the UPI and The Sporting News.

    So he lead the league in passing attempts and completions for one losing season. He lead the NFC in passing yards for one losing season.

    I'm siding with with Ultar on this one.

    Everything would have been ok if he hadn't cried to daddy and just gone to the chargers.

    You didn't. You said "Sucked". I brought up those two as prime examples of QBs who sucked. And I hoped to contrast Archie Manning against them as an example of someone who did not suck.

    As someone who plays and coaches the game, you should understand more than any of us the circumstances of being on a team surrounded by crappy players, supported by a horrible front offense and led by inept coaches. That sums up Archie Manning's career with New Orleans.

    Look - I'm not saying he's a Hall-of-Famer or even a top50 all-timer. I'm just saying he didn't suck.

    Ryan Leaf, Heath Shuler, Tim Couch, Quincy Carter, Andre Ware - they sucked. Archie Manning did not.
