Yeah, but records mean nothing when you play. No one gets spotted points bc they are 13-1.

It's all about matchups for Payton and how he can exploit them. When healthy, we have the advantage.

Edit ('cause I got the time)

I think it is time to address those who keep talking about the "classless" move Eli made back in '04. Essentially you are calling Archie out when you smack Eli for his decision. It was Archie's advice to Eli...not something Eli just pulled out of thin air. There was history.

I was in SoCal during the draft that involved Peyton and Leaf, and there were some pretty harsh comments made regarding Peyton, his ability to play football, and the Mannings in general...and it was all to justify their decision not to move up to get Peyton and to stay put and draft Leaf. That's the kind of organization Archie was trying to advise his kid to stay away from if all possible.

It really irks me that people go around saying, "He is dissing the NFL when he decides he doesn't want to play for whoever drafts him." I call "BS" on you people, because you know in your heart that if you are in a position to call the shots in your career, you are going to do it and you are not going to worry about what other people think about your decision, because, after all, it is you who has to go-on living your life.
Wow. Talk about a cheap shot. That hasn't even been brought up in months, but great job of living in the past. So talking about the Chargers sickens you because Archie got his feelings hurt because someone talked bad about Eli? Give me a break.

As the #1 draft pick, you are suppose to go to a team that's struggling and help make them competitive. That's why it's called the "NFL Draft" and not the NFL Job Expo.
All fans are passionate about their team. You insult the franchise, you insult them. If the tables were turned... it would be no different in New Orleans.

With that said, I though we agreed in a different post... don't get me started on Sheli and the 2004 Draft.
If you want to talk about what Archie achieved for the Saints... I'm down with that. Which has absolutely nothing to do with Sheli thinking he's so special that he deserves to pick his own team!



In 98, most people though **** would end up being the better QB. That's just opinion and prediction. That's all it is. Obviously very wrong too.

Since all you want is smack... I think it's time to activate ignore list.

I guess it really doesn't matter what the Manning's including ELI have done for the city (post Katrina), that anyone (B4L) can come on this site and say what they please and get the locals to agree.

Thats what Sickening!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe a little upset that John Elway used the Butts as a whipping boy

Ughhhhhh. A LOT of people helped out after Katrina... including myself! Now I'm aware that others helped out more but most people put in what they could with good intentions.

I don't personally know any of the Mannings. They could be great people but that doesn't mean everybody should applaud the 2004 Draft situation.

Like I said "All fans are passionate about their team. You insult the franchise, you insult them. If the tables were turned... it would be no different in New Orleans."

That shouldn't be hard to understand. Now back to football.
