What Is Your Single Favorite Eli Manning Pass?

AD-Blaze : 4/6/2018 7:08 pm
Aside from the obvious ones like Eli to Plaxico or Eli to Manningham in Superbowls 42 and 46 what is one particular pass that made you say "damn that was a hell of a throw"? For me it is the Eli to Manningham TD pass in the NFC Wild Card game against the Falcons in 2012. That throw was a thing of beauty and one of Eli's best throws I have seen to date. That throw was a dime and he put it where only Manningham could make a play on it. Aside from the 24-2 ass whooping we put on the Falcons that day that pass was the cherry on top for me.

Helmet catch
The biggest catch of Steve Smith's career deserves mention.

Looks routine but in that situation to get around Brandon Meriweather, get the first down, and get out of bounds, was huge.

2011 at Arizona, Manning and Nicks had been back shouldering Patrick Peterson all day even to excess as Aikman at one point commented something along the lines of "maybe going to the well a little to much"

Great comeback, down double digits with under 4:00 to play. The Giants needed every single positive play they made in 2011 to qualify for the post season.

Also- Manning to Cruz..

2011 season finale. Eli with a spin move and then hits Cruz for a huge gain stopping Dallas momentum.

Gutsiest play of his career. After that throw under that enormous pressure, anyone that doubted him should apologize.

Oh, you said single favorite. Uh... the second one?

Just shows that even the best of us can fuck up and survive.

Agreed. Itís an obvious choice, but also one of the finest throws in NFL history, and in such a big spot. My favorite reaction to watching the replay is after the catch, BB just shaking his head and walking away. He knew it was a catch, and wasnít going to bother with the challenge.

Nice memories. Those gifs were awesome. He had no time, the protection was bad for some of those plays. He is nowhere near that guy anymore......makes me sad.
Ha Googs calling me a moron...talk about complete lack...

of self awareness...

@ head as most rational thinking fans can see we really don't know if he is still that guy or not based on the shitshow he's been surrounded by since...

And the football decision makers ie DG and PS seem to agree at this point...

I guess the proverbial time will tell...

Look at the mobility in that gif from the Denver game in 2005. Kind of crazy to see Eli escape pressure with his legs like that. Almost a Russel Wilson-esque move. He stopped being able to do that a long time ago.

He can still sling it but if you get near him now, he just goes to the ground. He can't extend plays anymore which is tough because it makes pass pro even more crucial.

Anyway - you guys have already covered all the well-known ones.

This was another goodie. For the win.

Was that the game where 3 of our wideouts set a Giants record of all going over 100 yards receiving?
Yep. 3 TDs Victor Cruz.

Not a hater. Look at those San Francisco plays in those videos. Feet sufflin', eyes downfield, aware of the pressure, knows he is going to get hit but you knew he was going to make a play. I have not felt that way watching him in a long time. I love the guy, only jersey in my closet. He ain't the same.

Well what do you consider big throws? GW TD to Cruz in 2016? GW throw to Beckham in 2016? He made big throws in 2016 to help us win games.

He isnt the sole reason the team stunk last year.
No kidding
