this I have to disagree with. looking at the playoffs only and ignoring his regular season play (eli manning) and before i get into stats and such just a friendly reminder that without a david tyree helmet catch on a 4th down wing and a prayer and wes welker dropping a wide open pass to seal the game, eli would have 0 SBs but none the less 2005 - lost 0-23 to the panthers. eli had 0 TDs and 3 INTs and 113 yards. he single-handedly cost them that game 2007 - this was his SB win. now you claim he outplayed other QBs. lets take a look. vs TB wild card, yeah he outplayed jeff garcia. not anyting special vs Dal Div round, eli only threw 18 times for 163 yards in a 21-17 win. he did have 2 TDs and 0 INTs and romo didn't play well but it's hard to say a QB won the game throwing 18 times for 163 yards. vs GB NFC Champ, eli had 0 TDs 0 INTs in a 23-20 game. 251 yards (151 went to plaxico) favre didn't play well either. they both had a similar game niether outplayed the other. the main difference is the giants D shut down the packers run game (29 total rushing yards) while the giants ran for 130. vs NE SB, giants win 17-14 again eli and brady had similar performance. niether outplayed the other. giants D held NE to 14 points and 45 rushing yards So in short the 2007 run was mainly the defense holding some really good QBs in check and shutting down the run game and they won due to eli not making the big mistake, but he didn't outplay other QBs or win the game himself 2008 - lost 11-23 to philly. 50% completions 169 yards 0TDs 2 INTs. single-handedly lost the game 2011 - 2nd SB win vs ATL - giants D shut out ATL. giants won 24-2 with the 2 being an ATL safety obviously. eli did play a great game though but even without him anytime your defense pitches a shutout it's ahrd to give credit to the QB alone vs GB - eli outplayed rodgers here no doubt and deserves credit for this win vs SF - this one was pretty even performance wise for the QBs in a close game. they both threw 2TDs and 0 INTs eli threw for a little over 300 yards while smith was just shy of 200 yards but smith only threw 26 times to eli's 58 and was more efficient and had the higher QB rating. sitll i'd say this was jsut a good even battle for the QBs vs NE - this again i'd call it pretty even but it was much mor eimpressive for the giants D to shut down brady to play similar to eli 2016 - vs GB. giants lose 13-38. eli played a solid game the defense let them down. rodgers lit up the giants D and way outplayed eli So overall the giants wins weren't because of eli, it was because of the defense and a few good breaks. EDIT: if you want a real good laugh. this is mark sanchez playoff stats vs eli playoff stats winning % tied (sanchez 4-2 eli 8-4) TDs per game tied (eli 18 in 12 games, mark 9 in 6 games) TD to INT ration - edge mark (mark 3-1, eli 2-1) completion % tied (mark 60.51 , eli 60.50) yards/gm - edge eli (mark 192.50 , eli 234.58) QB rating - edge mark ( mark 94.3, eli 87.4) 4th Q comebacks - tied (both got half their wins as 4th quarter comebacks) basically the 2 of them stats in the playoffs are identical so i fail to see how eli was a great QB in the playoffs. if you want a really good laugh, peyton manning who everyone called a choke artist in the playoffs has the same career QB rating as eli in the playoffs.
