How Eli Manning went from near draft bust to NFL champion - ( New Window )
What an awful article

How you can possibly write that article without mentioning the week 11 lost to the Vikings where he throws three pick sixes including two in the fourth quarter? Everyone was questioning at that point whether Eli had any future with the team. It was a pivotal game and you don't even bring it up?

Agreed..Is she the one that left her job for a new one and effectively mailed in her articles for several months, or, Am I thinking of someone else?

Garbage. Reinforces my theory if you hand out enough pens you will find enough idiots.

Exactly!
Helped the team to the playoffs his first two seasons as a full time starter and both the wild card losses that ended those years can more than fairly be blamed on defenses that were utterly decimated by injuries , especially the 2006 squad.
Maybe I'm more patient than most but at no point, even after the 2007 Vikings disaster (which I was at) did I lose faith in Eli or think he was a bust
When the hell was Eli ever considered an almost bust?
