Eli is the only man to beat Brady in the Super Bowl

SHO'NUFF : 2/3/2019 10:18 pm
That thought would've been so sweet had it been factual. Fucking Foles and the shitstain Eagles ruined that for us. This is the only thing pissing me off about the outcome of this season.
He did it twice.

You take it when you can... especially in Eli's case since he's such a polarizing figure.

It truly is amazing that the Giants stomped on this Dynasty not once, but twice. It's really too bad the Eagles rained on our parade...
Again!!!

beat the Pats in the Super Bowl.

And that makes all the difference.
If it was Eli, Foles, Goff and (should've been) Ryan...fine  
SHO'NUFF : 2/3/2019 10:27 pm : link
the mystique of Brady is dead... but as it is, Eli is still grouped in an exclusive club with Tom Petty/Napoleon Dynamite wearing a fucking Eagles jersey.
Also the Pats have beaten the Eagles in the super Bowl

Of the two teams to play them twice only one team swept them. The New York Giants with Eli Manning at QB.

even when this was true, no one outside of giants message boards talked about it. I've heard people mentioning it'd help Eli's HoF chances. I really don't think so. I don't think it has much significance, just a neat little anecdote.
Anyhow, it's amazing the Pats have won 6 Super Bowls, particularly in era where dynasties are dead. They really should be 3-6 instead of 6-3 though. They should have lost to the rams (1st game), seahawks, and falcons.

Itís not really meaningless and this take is made by pretty much every single fanbase. Not just Giants fans. Itís a way of acknowledging how extraordinary what the Giants and Eli as the SBMVP accomplished
Eli didn't beat Brady, he took zero snaps on defense. The Giants  
SterlingArcher : 2/3/2019 11:09 pm : link
defenses for the two SB's were outstanding, they pressured and beat Brady up, they did things to him he was not use.
And yet Brady beat the defense when he had to.  
BBelle21 : 2/3/2019 11:12 pm : link
Until Eli came onto the field and took the victories back. Goff showed tonight just how difficult that is to do
And as great as Brady is in his career

He was not great tonight.

Are just a footnote in a 20 year Pats era of dominance. Theyíve been to four Super Bowls and won three since the Giants knocked them off for the second time. We are old news.

Forgot about the Seahawks game. Worst play call in SB history.
Absolutely, they should be 3-6. Maybe 2-7, if the Carolina Panthers dickwad kicker kept it inbounds.

So Eli beat Bill Belichicks defenses. With everything on the line under three minutes to play. Twice. Whatís the difference? Eli out dueled the greatness dynasty ever.

Yup, I've grown tired of these yearly threads about how once upon a time we beat the mighty Pats. Seems so long ago.

This is the right way to look at it. Eli did not play Brady. Now you might be able to say Eli beat a Bill B Defense twice.

christian : 2/4/2019 8:33 am : link
The much easier analysis without all the qualifiers and hoops is Brady has been to what 4 Super Bowls since 2011 and Manning has one zero playoff games.

Nick Foles did beat the Pats, he was fantastic. And the Seahawks and Falcons blew great chances as well.

The Giants palyed 2 great team games against the Pats and eeked both out, wonderful accomplishments.

Very happy for Manning, he played really well in both.

Beating BB and the Patriots twice in the SB (an 18-0 team no less), and a 2 time SB MVP is "just a neat little anecdote"?

I think it sorta does, Foles was a one hit wonder. A T-shirt, a movie of the week. He can't even hold an NFL QB job.

Meanwhile, Eli's done it twice while starting over 200 games and accumulating some pretty impressive stats.

Yea, cause that's what I said, JFC. I stated that being the only QB to beat the Patriots during their dynasty is an anecdote. Outside of this board it doesn't increase Eli's chances at the HoF nor does it lessen the legacy of the Pats. In the grand scheme of things he could have beaten any AFC and his chances would remain the same.

No it doesnt lessen the legacy of the Patriots but for that reason it most certainly improves his chances than if it had been any other AFC team(s). Can't believe you actually think that but you're entitled to your opinion.
