    Most...99%...of all Quarterbacks wilt under the pressure of the New York media. Eli never blinked an eye. He won Two Super Bowls. Not One. He's a shoo-in, easy 1st Time Hall-of-Fame inductee.

    I do think the hype on Eli is putting way too much emphasis on wins/losses for a QB. QBs don't control wins/losses like pitchers do in baseball and that stat is even controversial there. To me he's a no for the HoF and it's not even particularly close...but he will get in

    I'd put in Phil Simms before Eli

    Yep...the NFL is an entertainment biz, and name recognition usually triumphs.

    What a strange coincidence that he and Eli were exactly .500.
    Plunkett was special, but not HOF special. Eli would also be a no for me, but I suspect he will make it.

    The New Orleans Saints are going to court to keep emails from going public about the local Catholic Archdiocese's sexual abuse crisis.

    As I read through that, all I could think was that the innocent never have anything to hide.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I would disagree. Being honest and up front in all dealings is, in the long run, far more effective than being secretive and deceptive.

    I saw him hit the crossbar from at least 50 yards out.

    Arise and walk, come through. A world beyond that door is calling out for you. Arise and walk, come through. It's calling out for you.

    On two different occasions Eli went into Lambeau in the post season and beat two good Packer teams in freezing temperatures. Beat two different HOF QBs and then went on to win the SB both times.
