BLOG: Can’t Spell Elite Without ELI
Eli Manning just capped off a season for the ages with his second Super Bowl title and second Super Bowl MVP. He not only has two rings but also has thrust himself into the conversation of elite NFL quarterbacks.
He broke the record for 4th quarter TD passes this season with 15. Breaking the record of 14 held by Johnny Unitas and Peyton Manning. He also had 7 4th quarter comebacks this season (playoffs included). The top guys are still on top (Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, healthy Peyton) but Eli is now right there.
If Lee Evans catches that pass maybe Joe Flacco starts to enter conversation. Now we will have to wait til next year.
