As someone who actually enjoys watching the Giants, it's been amazing watching his career develop from bottom tier quarterback, to unquestionably elite.
Eli is everything you want in a quarterback. Does he get lucky with great catches on occasion? Yeah. But as the saying goes, you create your own luck.
Also, OP: don't forget the catch Braylon made at the end of the wild card playoff game in Indy the week before that Pats game.
Don't worry...If he does forget, I'll probably be the one who reminds him....again.
