First, I'm not deflecting here. We lost, Tony threw a pick at the end, I get it. Also, they are a division foe so yeah, we point out bad play from people in the division - it's what we do. But it has been laughable the pass that Eli has received this season from the media and fans. A lot of it is his name. It's never his fault, bad offensive line, no running game, receivers running wrong routes and even a few missed calls by the refs. Yet, this is a player who has TWICE led the league in INT's so I'm asking the question -- is this season such a surprise? Really? Finally a national reporter has told the truth - that yesterday, Eli was the reason the Giants lost. http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york-gi...le-eli-manning-is-killing-the-new-york-giants Tom Caughlin said his overall play was demoralizing. How bad was he? According to ESPN Stats & Information, Manning was 5-for-14 with two interceptions on throws within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage -- the worst completion percentage on such throws in any game this season for a quarterback with at least 10 attempts. His season completion percentage on those throws is now 54.1, with four interceptions. He had four total interceptions last year on throws within 5 yards of the line, and the league-average completion percentage on those throws is 69.7. In addition he had three intentioanal groundings, the most by any single quarterback in a game since 2008. What is clear from all this is how much leverage two Super Bowls will buy you. But, I believe his HOF chances are dwindling fast.
