No Eil is not elite
Elite should means top 10% of starting QB's in the NFL.

1.)Brees
2.)Rogers
3.)P. Manning (if healthy) if not Brady

This is our discussion, not the media's.
Eli is a great QB. With the team winning the Superbowl it helps his case for being labeled "great."

Arguing that great QB's without rings are not great is a fallacy and poor logic.

#1 I know this is our discussion k thanks.
#2 I am not arguing ANYTHING. All I know is NO ONE wanted to call Drew elite in 2006 - 2008. It took him winning the SB in 2009 to START getting mentioned as elite and again, I am not talking about us as fans.

So people mentioning names like Newton as elite is just moronic. (no offense to whoever said that)

I blame John Clayton who wants to extend the "elite" moniker all the way down to Matt Ryan.

Eli is elite.

When the postseason comes, he has been clutch - twice, not a fluke.

Yes, he's elite.

His numbers are right there with the best - and he's sharing the ball in a balanced offense.

[QUOTE=CharityMike;376474So people mentioning names like Newton as elite is just moronic. (no offense to whoever said that)[/QUOTE]

I mentioned Newton as a potential Elite "B".

Like him or not for the whole Auburn thing.... The kid is a player. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of his. But I do recognize ability when I see it. He had a great year for a Rookie QB. If....IF he keeps up that performance and gets better; he will be a QB to fear.

Almost 5,000 passing and rushing yards. He's finished 10th in passing yards.

When I think of Elite QB's; I think of QB's that you want to have the ball in their hands when the game is on the line.

No offense taken, by the way.

Eli is a top 5 QB in the league. Does that make him elite? I don't think so. The elite status belongs to guys like Brady, Brees, Peyton Manning, & maybe.....maybe Aaron Rodgers if he puts up a few more big years. Warren Moon put up big numbers & won big games. Was he elite? My opinion is NO......same as Eli.

I would probably place Moon in the ELITE category. He was a much better QB than Eli is now, and imagine his numbers if he played his entire pro-career in the NFL. For those that don't remember he spent 6 years setting records in the CFL before he came into the NFL.

He was certainly elite in my eyes.
