Bomani Jones says McNabb was better than Eli

SoZKillA : 1/24/2020 12:46 pm
He once said - "If you're better than McNabb, you're in." - Bomani Jones.

Someone tweeted this to him. His response was

ď wasnít better, tho. lasted longer. wasnít better.Ē

Just look at his tweets, heís gone on and on for days how he isnít a HOFer. Really embarrassing.

Why does ESPN hire people you have to look up?  
moespree : 1/24/2020 1:19 pm : link
They never used to. They used to have well known former players on their programming, but in the last 12-18 months it's a bunch of nobodies that you have to be reminded who they were and when they played.
Besides isn't longevity a big part of it

Playing through injury and being available to the team?

If not then everyone who has one good season she be in the HOF.

Show me 1 HOF guy who didn't do it over a long period of time
Both guys made it to the Superbowl  
Jimmy Googs : 1/24/2020 1:22 pm : link
and one of them earned MVP twice, and one of them vomited in the huddle.

That's all I have to say about that...
Shockey was better than Jason Whitten  
arniefez : 1/24/2020 1:24 pm : link
guess which one is going to be in the HOF.

The reason McNabb didn't win any Super Bowls is McNabb. The bigger the game the worse he played. Go back and watch the 2008 NFC Championship game. I dare you to find worse QB play in a big game than McNabb in the first half of that game.

Contrast that with Eli in the two championship games he played in.

Super Bowls? Eli two time MVP. McNabb literally threw up all over himself.

McNabb's teammates chose sides between him and Owens. We saw today what Eli's teammates thought of him.

Eli won the NFL man of the year award and the Starr award. The only thing McNabb has done off the field is get arrested multiple times and get thrown off TV.

Yes McNabb was better.

ELI MANNING - 16 season

57,023 yds, 366 TD, 244 INT, 60.5 Comp pct, 85.1 QBR (regular season)

2815 yds, 18 TD, 9 INT, 60.1 comp pct., 87.4 QBR (Post-season record 8-4, 2 SB MVP)


DONOVAN MCNABB - 13 seasons

37,276 yds, 234 TD, 117 INT, 59.0 comp pct, 85.6 QBR

3752 yds, 24 TD, 17 INT, 59.1 comp pct, 79.9 QBR (Post-season record 9-7, 0 SB MVP or championships for that matter)


Big players make big plays in big spots.

As for Donovan McNabb, I think I remember that guy. That's the guy who was the QB for the Eagles for along and never won a SB. I believe he even threw up in a huddle in the SB like a real GEEK. That's that guy, right?

McNabb had a couple really good seasons, but I never considered him a HoF'er. I always wondered how he would do away from Reid. He was still relatively young (for a qb) at 33, but he was terrible. So terrible that Grossman was trusted over him and then he was benched for Christian Ponder in minny.
...  
christian : 1/24/2020 1:41 pm : link
LOL that's ridiculous.

McNabb had every opportunity Manning had - same division, largely the same era, 10+ year career, many playoff teams, and not even close to the same production nor accomplishment.

Was Mcnabb better? Probably not. But letís not act like he was a scrub. They gave him TO and he dominated the NFL. Before that he was throwing to James thrash. Todd pinkston and Freddie mitchell. His teams were awful skill wise. He carried them year after year to division titles. Mcnabb had a great career. People remember him puking but letís not act like heís nowhere near Eliís level. He most certainly is in the discussion. His career was damn good and he kept the eagles afloat for years. Early 2000s he was a top qb for a span of 5 years.

I agree he had a great career. He also always had a very good OL and a offensive genius as a coach supported by one of the best D's under Johnson. There is a lot of talk about DG's mantra but the Eagles had it and he did not get them over the top.

Let's also realize the NFL East was very weak (1999-2004) so they feasted on subpar comp. That changed when TC, Bill and even Gibbs arrived.

I certainly have respect for McNabb but I do not think he is all that close to Manning.

Good points about the offensive line, Reid and the defense. However we can use that same argument about the weak division with Brady and the pats but nobody seems to.

Sure we can. Brady has definitely been supported with a weak division, the greatest Coach of all time and a strong roster.

If people would take a look at QB's stats objectively (Bradshaw, Aikman) objectively they will see their stats diminished as the teams around them did. The HOF's put the team over the top when enough of a supporting team exists imo. I think McNabb had the team.
It's not even close

McNabb was a better over all QB

than Eli. However Eli was a better pure passer. For a 5 year span (2000-2005)McNabb was the most dangerous QB. I know McNabb and Romo are underappreciated around here but both those guys were better than Eli.

Iím sure if Eli played for Andy Reid his entire career his numbers would be worse than they are now.

Andy Reid was so impressed by his own "Genius" that He starved the Eagle offense of Impact Players---short the brief TO "Era". The Latter and recent portion of Reids Career doesn't feature that mistake.

McNabb was a Great Player. Some of my Philly Friends used to criticize McNabb....I'd ask them to name 5 better contemporary QB's and they began babbling after #3.

Great is not the right word. Definitely very good. A 6X pro bowler.
