First, some watch company made those idiotic commercials where they labeled Eli Messiah as "unstoppable," but ESPN has taken it one further. Some clown has listed Eli as one of the 10 most indispensable players in the NFL, joining the likes of Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson, etc. (Read on.)
And he was serious.
Seriously, how hard is it to just heave the ball in the air to Plaxico Burress, allowing him to make a play for the ball. Did this guy not watch the Super Bowl? What exactly did Eli do that nobody else in the NFL could have done?
Do you think that Jay Cutler could have run around and threw a ball to have David Tyree make a one handed catch? Is there an Arena Football League quarterback who couldn’t have thrown the ball to Burress when he corkscrewed a Patriots defensive back in the ground?
In fact, you could argue that the Giants might have been further along if they had another quarterback other than Eli Messiah. Hell, they might have won a couple of Super Bowls had they kept and protected Kurt Warner.
But hey, this moron roped me in like some marlin because I took the bait on this lame story.
