It's a bit more complex I would think... there were times when it was the D who coudln't stop anyone... putting pressure on the O... there were times when the OL was atrocious etc... Yea I'm aware.. .Eli has caused me more heartburn than I care to admit... but on the flip side, he's been an outstanding team player and a class act.
And I never said he wasn't.
He's been the class of New York you couldn't ask for a better franchise QB and he will have his number retired and name entered into the ring of honor, he might even squeak into the HOF.
But he's never been a top of the league passer like his brother or guys like Brees, Rodgers, etc.
But he's made the throws when it counts which is all that matters.
I'll miss the goof, I own four of his jerseys and he's been a pillar here and has been blasted by the media and fans constantly his entire career, me included.
But I just feel it's time to move on and I'd rather do it this year and get a rookie QB some experience then wait another year parading Eli out there week after week hoping he taps into the QB he was 8 years ago.
