Eli Manning in the Class of Brady? We’ll See Thursday
A couple weeks ago Eli Manning told ESPN that he feels that he’s in the same class as Tom Brady. “I consider myself in that class,” said Manning. “Tom Brady is a great quarterback, he’s a great player and what you’ve seen with him is he’s gotten better every year. He started off winning championships and I think he’s a better quarterback now than what he was, in all honesty, when he was winning those championships.”
Wow…Eli are you serious?! The same class as Tom Brady? Yeah right…and I’m a better running back than Chris Johnson. Come on Eli we’re talking about Tom Brady, three time Super Bowl winner, six time Pro Bowler, two time Super Bowl M.V.P. you don’t match up to that Eli. Matter of fact you don’t match up to that in Madden.
That was the scene two weeks ago.
Last night the scene was much different. 15 of 30, 200 yards, two interceptions, zero touchdowns, and a passer rating of 43.8. Pre-season or not, two interceptions is just terrible, terrible, terrible (In my Charles Barkley voice). To top it all of Eli has yet to score a touchdown in any game this pre-season and the fourth week against New England doesn’t look that promising, especially after Eli’s comments on Brady.
Now I understand that Eli has won a Super Bowl and was the Super Bowl M.V.P. and went to a Pro Bowl, but he’s no Tom Brady…not even close. So Eli can I ask you what you were thinking? Because come Thursday when you take the field against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots their going to be asking the same question too, what were you thinking?
You’re no Tom Brady, or Drew Brees, or Phillip Rivers, or Peyton Manning, you’re just Eli Manning, the son of Archie Manning and the little brother of Peyton Manning. So I don’t want to hear you say that your in the class of Tom Brady ever again, ok Eli? Actually don’t even put yourself in a class, because chances are you’ll be wrong again.
Good luck this Thursday Eli, you’re going to need it.
P.S. Tell the world that you were wrong and that you’re not in the class of Brady, it will help you out a lot especially come Thursday.
