Here, Eli went ON THE ROAD and won at Tampa, at 13-3 Dallas, and at Green Bay, before knocking off the undefeated Pats.
Brady faced Jacksonville at home, the Chargers at home (without a healthy LT and with Rivers playing with a torn ACL if I remember correctly) and then of course the Giants.
Eli had 6 TD's and 1 INT in those playoff games
in 2011 he knocked off Atl at home, beat Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, and beat the 9ers in San Fran, before beating Tom. Eli, 9 TD's and 1 INT. Had a rating over 103 in 5 of these 8 games.
Brady in 2011? Beat the Tim Tebow led Broncos, and then the Flacco Ravens, both at home, and oh by the way, the Ravens had the game winning TD dropped in the end zone.
So, you tell me. Which path was harder? Eli's path, or Tom's path? Or are you going to argue this point as well?
See the difference is, Tom wins the games he usually should win, give or take a miracle catch here, or a miracle drop there. Peyton? He's 9 and 11. With more one and done's than ANY QB in history, the entire history of the NFL, Peyton one and done's more than any. His OWN BROTHER has more big wins than Peyton. And as I showed, Eli's numbers in those 2 years far outweight all your regular season #'s Peyton puts up.
At some point, you have to just get it thru your skull dude. He's great, one of the 5 best to ever play the game, but I'm sorry, he's a step below a couple guys. He just is. But top 5 is nothing to have his fans go crazy over. Not like we in here putting him at 27 or something. He's top 5, anybody would acknowledge that. And we have. But it's not top 1-2-3 is all. I'd say that's pretty fair on our parts.
