ELI????

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wonder what would happen to the Brooks-a-philes if Brooks were to come out with some sort of Cory Dillon-esque, \"I\'m sick of being here, trade me to Dallas.\" sort of outburst? How about the \" I have been traded ...

I know some Saints fans love the Mannings. But I equate the word Manning to the word LOSER. Now, I\'m not saying that to be bashing the Mannings, but that\'s all any of them have done. Is it all their fault? Of course not. Archie played on some bad teams. Peyton on the other hand I believe is a genuine choke artist.

I also think the Manning boys are very selfish, \"me\" type players who put their stats above their team. Peyton tries to do it all himself and it has cost the Colts year after year in the playoffs. And that includes this year of course.

If we are going to draft a QB, I want one associated to winning and the name \"Manning\" hardly defines that word.

Maybe the Manning are cursed? Or, maybe overrated. When their dad teaches them that football is a team game and it\'s better to be an average QB, then maybe they will finally win the big one. WhoDat will testify to that?

Well, I know the Mannings and they are great people. That\'s right, I know them. Archie\'s house is next door to a friend\'s house (which incidentally was the house that JFK was filmed in - Kevin Costner\'s house). I\'ve barbequed in their backyard, been in their pool, and played basketball with them all from Coop to Eli and even Archie. They are anything but me first type of people and they are most definitely not losers. I still believe that Archie would have been a Pro Bowler year in and year out if he hadn\'t played for the Aints. Poor Archie. All of the Manning boys were stars at Newman, and stars in college. Peyton is a star in the pros.

I\'m not saying that I advocate drafting Eli, I\'m just throwing in my two cents about the Mannings, since I actually KNOW them as compared to some people that make inferences about them having never met them.

1. I call them losers not as human beings, because I\'m sure they are fine folks. I called them losers on the football field, which is totally the truth.

2. Do you know Aaron Brooks? If not then why do you bash the guy so hard. Maybe he\'ll inivite you to eat some chitlin\'s one day and only then you can criticize the man.

Just to set the record straight --

I am only playing around with WhoDat. I think WhoDat knows that and I\'m not trying to start any arguements or belittle anyone.

Is that cool??

Cool.

So then Billy. You don\'t like Eli b/c \"the Mannings\" are losers. So would you trade Brooks for Peyton straight up if both cost the exact in salary and cap hit and all that? Right now, if I said here\'s Manning, take him, just give me Brooks, would you do it?

Yeah I would do it and I\'d have to hope Peyton learns to not try to do everything in the playoffs. See, I tell it like it is.

So then by your reasoning, \"the Mannings\" are losers, but still a better choice than Aaron Brooks. Thus, Brooks is a bigger loser. Good work Billy.
