This a horrible comparison any that this comparison is apt is really dumb. Elway carried teams to super bowls by himself. Elway's mobility and arm strength are legendary. Elway might be the last true franchise QB to appear in the NFl

This is a joke, Elway is a hall of famer, Eli has three years under his belt, what a joke

Umm Peyton Manning? Among quite a few others. That statement made no sense.

-both Eli and Elway were Hiesman finalists, but didn't receive the award

-Eli and Elway were both drafted first in drafts rich in the Quarterback position (Marino and Jim Kelly, Phil Rivers and Big Ben)

- their stats through 3 seasons are almost identical. Just take a look

Elway

1983 123/259 47.4% 1,663 yards 7 TDs 14 INTs
1984 214/380 56.3% 2,598 yards 18 TDs 15 INTs
1985 327/605 54.0% 3,891 yards 22 TDs 23 INTs

Eli

2004 95/197 48.2% 1043 yards 6 TDs 9 INTs
2005 294/557 52.8 3762 yards 24 TDs 17 INTs
2006 314/530 59.0% 3486 yards 25.3 TDs 20 INTs

I projected Eli's last 4 games of 2006.

- Eli looks a lot like Elway with his fourth quarter heroics.



Peyton Manning may be the next Dan Marino, but Eli is the next John Elway, who has the rings.

I really hate when people make these kinds of predicitons about players. All it does is make Eli look like a huge diaspointment even if he plays well if he doesn't outplay Elway which very few people do. He already has to live with being copared to his brother and always being expected to be as good as him. I just think people need to stop setting Eli up to be a disapointment.

If his name wasn't Manning people wouldn't consider him to be a huge bust at this point. But since his name is Manning people expect him to be his brother right now and that just isn't fair.

Plus he has to deal with the pressures of New York but he picked that poison.

Is this thread implying that if Eli was not struggling this year, than he would not be the next Elway? But now that he is struggling he will be Elway?

^ It would seem yes...



As for this thread. Does anyone else feel like making an Eli Manning thread? I mean, it's not like we just had an 8+ pager less than a week ago. This is really getting ridiculous. This is last new one that will be made. Anymore Eli Manning threads will not just be closed, they will be deleted. If you want to talk about Eli Manning, you can dig up one of the old ones and post in there, or you can all get together to discuss Eli Manning's facial complexion and tight butt in the Giants thread.

If he was not struggling, the thread will be "LOL @ teh Haters, Manning is just like Carson Palmer."
