N/S Is Eli elite?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Eli is elite... maybe on the tail end of it but he is. There isn't a whole lot of QB's with rings... he has two and counting. Its not about scaring someone its about winning!!!...

Besides elite, I think he's a very fancy dancer

... and I think that's what makes people hesitate to call Eli 'elite', he wins ugly ... kinda' like a Tebow with talent or good mechanics ...

After this win, I think it's fair to to put him up there with Brady, Brees, Rodgers & Peyton ... he may not have the finesse, but he's got the characteristics you want in your QB and you can't argue with (2) SuperBowl rings.

Eli is elite and belongs in the Brady, Brees, Rodgers group. I might just add Stafford, but in my opinion Rivers doesn´t belong there anymore!

Rivers? No, it just didn't pan out for him, he's gonna' be in there with the Dan Marino debate ... now Stafford, he's knocking at the door and is one to watch ... plenty of potential, but he has to show he can do it for more then one season and win something first. Of all the newer QB's in the league, I like him best, but maybe I'm a little biased ...

All I am gonna say about all the other QB being mentioned in this thread is, people wouldn't call Brees Elite until he won a SB. Just Saying.
