How can I respond? You don't give any examples, you just say that the coaching was bad.
To tell the truth, I don't think the Giants did anything different that final drive. It seemed more like a mistake by Denver's coaches in that they abandonned the blitz which had worked through the game. They dropped back and left a cushion until the Giants were already in the red zone. At that point, they tightened up, but Manning got it done.

Note: I am all for intelligent discussion, I just tend to react when someone jumps into what is obviously a cheering thread and knocks other posters for things they never said.
I am so smart. S-M-R-T

Are you kidding? Did you even watch the game? That was Eli's 15th game as a pro and yes he made mistakes. There were times when he didn't handle the blitzes very well and there were times when the play had the Broncos beat and the ball sailed. But he's a young QB and he handled a complex blitzing scheme well enough to keep the Giants in the game. The one interception he gave up was a mistake by Plaxico and a great catch by Champ Bailey. Then when it counted he won it. To say he looked like a bad HS QB is pretty far off the mark.

I am not especially an Eli Manning fan, but you have to admit he is doing an amazing job for such a young inexperianced quaterback. Move over Peyton pretty soon your brother is going to be kicking you butt. Giants are lucky to have him and he is the reason for their success. It would be interesting to see a Giants/Colts game later in the season.

Considering this is a thread about how much Eli has matured and improved, it's not necessary to comment on crappy calls the offensive coordinator made.

Agh...


I would have done it too... had the chance to put Favre in over him last minute but I was hoping he wasn't going to throw 2 INTs, the Rush TD let me forgive him a little though...

you make a good point bowie. denver backed off on their blitzing and eli took care of them. denver went into a semi-prevent D. they abandoned what got them the lead. I was rooting for the giants and i have eli on my team, so i was disgusted with all the deep outs they continued to throw. just horrible play calling. where was that underneath crossing pattern to shockey that was so successful last week? Eli looks good, but lets not get cattied away with comments like "move over peyton". lol. at least not until they get in their new stadium and away from the swirling winds of the meadowlands.
