O-line doesn't do him any favors but Eli Manning has never been that good. Couple of lucky throws in the Super Bowl and well, there you go. He's always been a whole lot more like a Joe Flacco than a Peyton Manning.

Only Q.B to beat Brady 2x in Superbowl. However it happened...cant take anything away from Manning. Personally, never liked him but he made plays in Superbowl when it mattered and didnt take a sack.

Most overrated QB in NFL since like forever.

Not true, guy who has 2nd most all time consecutive starts as Q.B and beat Brady 2x in superbowl  is a commendable achievement.

Yeah, alright. Helmet catch was nothing but luck. Pure and simple luck. Giving him credit for that play is like giving the Eagles credit for Keanu Neal not intercepting that pass last year or the Saints credit for the butt interception.

Helmet catch only happened because Manning escaped from blatantly obvious pressure and sack....look at the tape.

Again, Manning is not a TOP 5 QB and personally,  dont care even if hes in discussions....but, we cannot disrespect a 2x Superbowl Q.B with 2nd most consecutive starts.

Yes. He escaped major pressure (good job Eli) and then threw up a hail mary that was caught. That's like Aaron Rodgers getting all that credit for making such a great throw on a hail mary. Hail mary is nothing but luck plain and simple. QB just has to throw up a jump ball and then you pray your guy makes the catch. I will not give Eli Manning credit that 110% belongs to David Tyree. Not gonna happen. Tyree made Eli look like a God on that play.

What does 2nd most consecutive starts have to do with anything? All that tells me is that he's been lucky not to get hurt. That has nothing to do with "greatness."

Eli Manning is living proof that you can win a SB with an average QB in some cases.  Dude has been stinking it up over the last few years but hasn't had the best blocking in the world.  Ryan is much tougher than he is.

Giants defense is main reason why they beat Brady and Pats.

Yes it is, my man. This is why I have no problem players like Julio going back for some more.

Good job by Eli escaping all kinds of danger.....but still.....It was an amazing catch.

Can't believe the Nick Williams homers didn't talk about that big play Nick Williams had last night against the Packers. Seam route and Mariota hit him in stride and the defender fell down and Williams gained like 40 yards.
