Jacobs: Eli is NFL’s best

Giants quarterback Manning holds the Vince Lombardi Trophy after the Giants defeated the Patriots  in the NFL Super Bowl XLVI football game in Indianapolis Reuters

I wrote my post-Super Bowl column for NBCSports.com on Eli Manning outplaying Tom Brady down the stretch of Sunday’s game.

While Brady had his moments against the Giants, the Patriots didn’t score for the final 26 minutes of the game. Brady got the ball with the lead twice in the fourth quarter and couldn’t capitalize. Manning, like he’s done for so much of the season, played his best when the pressure was greatest.

Manning was the best fourth quarter and third down quarterback all season long. The same trend played out on the game’s biggest stage. It’s enough to make Brandon Jacobs say his quarterback is the best in the league overall.

“Now [Eli] has two titles,” Jacobs said, spittle flying from his mouth. “Drew Brees is a pretty good quarterback and he’s at home. Aaron Rodgers is a pretty good quarterback and he’s at home. Tom Brady is a good quarterback. . . . And Eli beat him twice. Ask Tom Brady if that means [something].”

Football is a team game, so Jacobs is oversimplifying things. But for the last six weeks, no quarterback has been better than Eli Manning.

Eli played well all year, even when the Giants were losing games. He’s always been known as a streaky quarterback, but he was on a hot streak for the whole season.

    Agreed!

    And the most clutch. He wins Super Bowls with TDs…not FGs.

    It was great to see that Giants TE flop around injured.

    Highlight of the day.

  3. marktheaudioguy says: Feb 6, 2012 10:06 AM

    As a Cowboys fan, I have to agree. I think Romo and Eli are very similar, but the HUGE difference is that Eli comes up BIG in those big games. Romo doesn’t. The same can be said for the both teams.

    Congrats Giants.

    P.S. This is only the 2nd time I’ve ever rooted for the Giants. The first was when they played Green Bay. I HATE the Packers and Patriots more than I hate the Giants.

    Why take shots at Rodgers and Brees and Brady?

  7. zlmillerkazz says: Feb 6, 2012 10:10 AM

    Listen… in the NFL there is no true way to distribute one player as being “the best”. It is absolutely a team sport, without a doubt. Every player even plays in different systems. BUT! Let’s face it… Eli, is a damn good Quarterback, haters are gonna hate. Fact of the matter is, Manning played phenomenal and made one of the greatest Super Bowl passes of all time to Super Mario.

    Congrats Giants.

    This was Eli’s year. Was he better than Rodgers or Brees statistically, of course not but that really doesn’t matter at this point.

  9. pftcensorsrretards says: Feb 6, 2012 10:11 AM

    Eli maybe inconsistent at times over his career during the regular season, but nobody can deny he is money in the playoffs. What kills me about people is that they trash him for looking goofy. He is a millionaire, has a hot wife and has two titles. Id love to see pictures of some of you clowns that trash him for his looks.

  10. wvucolumbus says: Feb 6, 2012 10:12 AM

    Colin Cowherd is nailing it out of the park. The Krafts, Bill Belichick, etc. are NOT the best. Their receivers, line play, defense is NOT the best.

    Tom Brady IS the best. He’s the reason they have 3 titles, not Belichick. He is so good that he’s able to take teams to the SB with marginal WRs. The undefeated season he finally had a motivated WR and you see what they do…almost unblemished.

    The Patriots aren’t an ELITE organization. That’s reserved for the Giants, Packers, and Steelers. They simply have the best signal caller ever to step foot on the football field.

  11. scra22 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:12 AM

    Drew Brees brought his team the lead TWICE in the 4th quarter after being down 17-0 in San Fran, and his abomination of a defense gave it right back up twice, for the 2nd time with about 10 seconds left in the game. Football is a team sport. Eli and the rest of his team *all* played better down the stretch.

  13. mjs2012 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:16 AM

    Someone needs to correct Jacobs on that statement. Aaron Rodgers was actually at the Super Bowl as an NBC analyst, not at his home.

  14. mjkelly77 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:16 AM

    Eli’s the best? He’s just lucky he plays for such a good team. Great receivers. Hey, Swamp Boy even has a brother who is better than him.

  15. seanb20124 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:18 AM

    He is the best, he led the Giants to a 9-7 regular season record.

  16. nolanorth says: Feb 6, 2012 10:20 AM

    Whoa slow down everyone.. The Eli hype is getting a little overboard!

  17. jicjak says: Feb 6, 2012 10:21 AM

    He gets the ball to his receivers and they don’t drop it. Sums up the whole game.

  18. bigbluenationdb says: Feb 6, 2012 10:22 AM

    What people don’t realize is Eli finally has some playmakers he can get the ball to. The previous two seasons he was working with scraps due to injuries. Nicks is only in his third year, Cruz is a rookie and Manningham was a 4th round pick.

    Last year the Giants were devestated by injuries at the WR position. I think at one point they were starting Mark Clayton and Devon Thomas both rejects from other teams.

    Let Eli keep this core group of WRs and add a TE that can stretch the field. Will be unstoppable on defense.

  19. tommikula says: Feb 6, 2012 10:23 AM

    Eli should be rotting in San Diego and Phillip Rivers should have those Super Bowls!!!!!

  20. Mr. Wright 212 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:25 AM

    Most clutch QB in the game. Let Brees have his stats and let Brady dink and dunk. Rodgers has a different element to his game that none of these other guys have, so he’s got a slight edge, but there’s no one I would want in these situations (TIME AND TIME AGAIN IN 2011) than Eli.

    @ cromags

    he know his qb is not better than them…. i never seen any team or player after a superbowl give off a list of players ur guy is better than…. if u feel that way and no one else does who cares long as u winning….. clearly giants have some type of qb envy

  24. rpiotr01 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:31 AM

    Eli had a very good regular season and an outstanding post-season. The Giants, as a team, played flawless football while their opponents made killer mistakes. Congrats to them on a championship season.

    Generally speaking, this constant rush to anoint “the best” is annoying and troubling. The way the NFL works, it’s nearly impossible to win multiple years in a row. The system is set up for that NOT to happen. Brees was on top in 2009, Rodgers in 2010 and now Manning in 2011. But that has nothing to do with team defense? Nothing to do with luck? Dropped passes, the bounce of a fumble, an injury at the wrong time for an opponent? All these things play a part in a championship season, and to boil it down to “he’s at home, he’s at home, etc.” is just plain ignorance, and frankly something I’d expect from fans but not a guy who actually plays the game.

  25. charliedamon says: Feb 6, 2012 10:37 AM

    Things will go back to normal next season when the Giants lose twice to the Skins again, and don’t make the playoffs with a 9-7 or worse record, and Coughlin once again will be playing for his job.

  26. The Prophet says: Feb 6, 2012 10:39 AM

    Add to that in 2007 he beat Tony Romo, Brett Favre, and Tom Brady to guys he beat in one on one QB matchups in the playoffs.

    I wish people could start saying Eli is the best without having to qualify their statement.

  27. pak1forgb says: Feb 6, 2012 10:39 AM

    Big ben has won two superbowls is he the best? Eli has played beyond great but to say he is the best qb in the league is lunacy. I expect his teammates to say it but to echo the sentiment makes you look silly. Now Tom coughlin might be the best damn coach in the league that I wouldn’t argue. Somebody give that old red-faced bastard his props!!!

  29. ppc50 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:47 AM

    Jacobs has the “biggest” mouth in the NFL, mostlt for a guy who averaged about 40 yards rushing a game. Eli is definitely elite, top 3, but not the best yet. The Giants were still 7-7, before they went on their amazing run.

  30. finitesd says: Feb 6, 2012 10:48 AM

    Eli has definitely proven himself to be a great QB, especially in clutch situations. But I’d still take Philip Rivers over Eli Manning any day of the week.

  31. papacrick says: Feb 6, 2012 10:48 AM

    Not flashy at all just a guy who gets it done when everything is on the line. You’re not saying “wow this guy is the best” while watching him but it’s hard to argue with the results.

  32. at5291 says: Feb 6, 2012 10:54 AM

    Brandon Jacobs is an idiot. Listen to him talk he sounds like he’s only reached an 8th grade education level. He is a waste of a big back and he runs soft. Eli is good but far from the best , like brady he has had alot of luck throughout his career.

  34. tialen says: Feb 6, 2012 10:57 AM

    Yes I’m sure the Patriots and the Giants defenses are created exactly equal, so therefore the outcome of this game was solely on the head of one Eli Manning.

    give me a break, this is a team game, and I’ll stick to opinion that Eli is a top 10 QB, not Top 5.

    On the bright side of things, Vegas got pummeled by this win.

  35. svcfilmguy says: Feb 6, 2012 10:57 AM

    I don’t know about that. Right now, it’s just about impossible to argue that he isn’t the most clutch. The man has a calm, icy demeaner on game-winning drives that I have quite literally never seen before. He’s awesome.

    But can I really say he’s better than Rodgers, Brees, Brady, and a healthy Peyton? Sorry, I can’t. Now if he does this again next season, you won’t hear an argument from me. Elite? Yep. The best? No.

  36. xxwhodatxx says: Feb 6, 2012 10:59 AM

    Eli is definitly good but Jacobs needs to shut his pie hole. This is a case where the two best teams were not in the SB.

  37. patriotinvasion says: Feb 6, 2012 11:01 AM

    As a Patriots fan, again, congrats to the Giants. You got us again. It hurts, but both games were tight contests that your team made more plays when it mattered.

    As for Eli, the Boston media has never been anti-Eli so I guess the whole “is he elite or not” debate was purely a New York thing.

    Brady is still a first ballot Hall of Famer, but the Giants will always go down as a thorn in his side….but nothing we can do about that. Just thankful I’ve had so many opportunities to see the Patriots play on the biggest stage and I hope Brady can get one more before it’s all said and done.

    As a Packer fan im glad the Giants won because i hate that has been franchise down in Dallas. It sure was great winning a championship in your house last year!!!

  42. franktherat96 says: Feb 6, 2012 11:23 AM

    I agree that Eli needs to be mentioned in the top QB’s in the league, but NFL’s best….not quite sure about that yet. Jacobs has always been a tool and just needs to shut up and enjoy the moment. I lost al respect for him after his stupid comment about the Saints on NFL films when we played them in 2009. On one he he says we were a good team that year, then the next sentence he says we were the same old saints and nothing had changed. The Giants are happy(and Jacobs has said as much) that the 49ers beat us, because had they had to come down to the Superdome to face us for the NFC Championship game Eli and company would have been watching the Super Bowl from the stands.

  43. franktherat96 says: Feb 6, 2012 11:23 AM

    I do agree for the last seeks weeks he has been the best though.

  44. johnnyb14z3 says: Feb 6, 2012 11:34 AM

    Defense is better than Packers, Saints, and Patriots this year.

    When the Packers entire team shows up you get beat either by 3, when you play your best OR demolished 45-17 like in 2010

    When you played the Saints, you got raped.

    You beat Brady twice who has a horrid defense. And you only scored 9pts against the worst defense ever to make it o the bowl in the 1st half. Again the Giants get credit for beating a team that beat themselves.

    Eli has 2 rings in 8 years.
    Rodgers hasn’t played as long and doesn’t have a stellar defense giving him the ball.

    MVP of the Super Bowl < MVP of the league.

    If Eli was the best, he would have been MVP of the league, NOT JUST IN ONE GAME AGAINST ONE OF THE WORST DEFENSES EVER. Giants always down play their defense and blow their QB hard.

  45. jakek2 says: Feb 6, 2012 11:42 AM

    I finally agree that Eli is not the same class as Brady, Brees, Rodgers. He’s in a class above them all by himself.

  46. theghostoflombardi says: Feb 6, 2012 11:44 AM

    I’m sorry, but Eli is not better than Brady, Brees, or Rodgers.

    He’s been unbelievably clutch over his career, and he’s definitely a top 5 QB, but he’s only one season removed from throwing 25 picks.

    He’s a great quarterback but, statistically speaking, there are a handful of QBs in the league who have just outperformed him.

  47. illbringdabeers says: Feb 6, 2012 11:45 AM

    Eli is not better then Brees or Rodgers. Eli’s really freaking good, but he’s not as good as them. And I’m not “hating” on Eli, none of them are the QB for my team. I’d gladly take any of those 4 over the crap I have at that position. I understand he AND his team just won the Super Bowl but let’s keep this thing in an honest perspective. How many MVP votes did he get? How many votes for OPOTY did he get? There’s a difference between being a top 5 Qb and “the best”.

  48. lawrinson20 says: Feb 6, 2012 11:45 AM

    Brandon is “simplifying things” because he’s a simple-minded man.

    I wonder how many better running backs there are in the NFL… who are also “at home.”

    Logic eludes him.

    Umm, false

  50. filmex2000 says: Feb 6, 2012 12:00 PM

    Any of the aforementioned would be the “best” if they had Cruz, Nicks and Manningham to throw to.

  51. judsonjr says: Feb 6, 2012 12:00 PM

    For being the best, he sure has a tendency to have a couple bad to awful games each December.

    2011 – Jets (33% completion – W) and Wash (45 QB rating – L)
    2010 – GB (65 QBR – L) and Minny (59 QBR – L)
    2009 – CAR (75 QBR – L) and Minny (71 QBR – L)
    2008 – DAL (44 QBR – L) and Philly (73 QBR, sub 50% completion – L)
    2007 – Wash (51 QBR – L) and BUF (32 QBR – W)

    What’s funny is that in 2007 and 2011, those wins when he played terrible got them in to the playoffs and eventually a SB ring.

  52. jimyritz says: Feb 6, 2012 12:02 PM

    For a guy who rushed the ball for 37 yards he sure has a lot to say…not too mention that Bradshaw is the starter…I think history will decide who’s better than who…

  53. mikes92nygiants says: Feb 6, 2012 12:12 PM

    Statistically, he prbly wont be at the top cuz this team isnt all about playing for stats like u saw with the pats (gronkowski) n saints (brees n graham). They go for the W and thats what Eli does best. Shows up big in big games and helps the team win.

    If any of those 3 QB’s had the defense that Eli did, the Giants wouldn’t have even been in the Superbowl. Although, to give Eli credit, he did have to win it this year with only one good running back.

  57. mightyleemoon says: Feb 6, 2012 12:36 PM

  58. billh1947 says: Feb 6, 2012 12:36 PM

    If it wasnt for a great catch by Maningham and a good Giants defense this would have been a different outcome,Eli certainly isnt the second coming of his brother,nor Brees,nor Rodgers,he is merely a good QB with powerful running backs to keep the pressure off him and a couple good recievers,he and Romo are on the same level but he has a better cast around him.

  59. vikescry1 says: Feb 6, 2012 12:49 PM

    well jacobs should also know note the giants defense are the best! at falling down and claiming to be injured ( for a play to slow down opposing offense’s) and putting 12 men on the field to take some time off the clock? and yet eli gets all the credit? eli is good and yes he has 2 superbowl rings but it is a team game. dan marino has none but that doesn’t make eli better than him.

  60. tcgators1 says: Feb 6, 2012 1:11 PM

  61. giantlucksacks says: Feb 6, 2012 1:20 PM

    never in the history of sports has there been a team that has gotten every single huge bounce like the giants have in their past 3 NFC champs and SBs.

    Wes Welker, join the ranks of Roger Craig, Scott Norwood, Brett Favre, Asante Samuel, David Tyree, and Kyle Williams.

    In the Giants last 3 games, there have been 10 fumbles. The Giants fell on EIGHT of them.

    He may be a mouth breather, but Eli certainly belongs in the elite status. His line did a great job blocking for him, and he made the clutch passes.

  68. jakek2 says: Feb 6, 2012 1:54 PM

    Enough with Roethlisberger. His team beat the Seahawks and Cardinals. In one of those games, he didn’t even show up. Eli beat a top 3 QB of all time TWICE on the world’s biggest stage. Ben can’t hold Eli’s jock.

  69. theytukrjobs says: Feb 6, 2012 1:55 PM

    I totally agree! How is it that throughout the playoffs Eli can consistently chuck the ball up for grabs, and either his receiver makes a great play, or two defenders collide with each other going for easy interceptions, and he never gets burned! Talk about luck playing a role in winning the Super Bowl! He is very good, but he didn’t put the team on his shoulders and win this game or the NFC Championship, he simply didn’t screw up. I guess he should get some credit for that, but how does that make him the best?

  72. coolzog says: Feb 6, 2012 2:46 PM

    That’s like saying Brandon Jacobs is the best RB in the league because he has more rings than Adrian Peterson.

    It’s a team game, and Eli played average against one of the worst secondaries in the league. The reality is that The Giants receivers outplayed the Patriots, the QBs were a wash.

  73. otis52gsh says: Feb 6, 2012 3:30 PM

    Manning is not even a top 5 QB. Great down the stretch, no doubt, but he is number 6 at best.

  74. thepasswordis12345 says: Feb 6, 2012 3:33 PM

    Ten years from now, there won’t be any mention of Eli Manning in the same breath as Brees, Rogers or Brady. Or even his brother.

    Eli has had his moments of brilliance and has two rings. It may even get him into the Hall of Fame. The moment will pass, the hype will die down, and Eli will take his rightful place. He’ll be remembered as a very good QB that had his moments of greatness and was clutch in big moments. But how quickly winning a ring makes everyone forget a career marred by inconsistency. Wasn’t it just last season that this guy turned the ball over 30 times? Eli had a great playoff run, but let’s keep things in perspective.

    The NFL’s best ?Eli is not even the best Manning.Eli is a good QB but you cannot say he is better then Peyton , Breese , Brady , and Rodgers.

    funny, I recall Eli spending alot of time at “home” when his runningbacks were too busy throwing helmets at fans and when his defense was nearly as lousy as the defenses Rodgers/Brees/Peyton/Brady have had to work with.

    If Rodgers had a defense that could get actual pressure, the Packers are probably 19-0 this year.

    If Brees had a defense with more than one guy (vilma), he’d probably have more rings than montana at this point.

    Just think, if the lowly Eagles don’t blow all those fourth quarter leads this year and win just one of them, the Greatest QB of All-Time doesn’t even get in the playoffs! The Greatest even lost to that sorry Eagles team with the immortal Vince Young filling in for Michael Vick!

    Eli is. Lucky that the 49ers didn’t fumble

    Rodgers, Brees and Brady are a league above Eli. Two fluke hot streaks towards the end of the season that culminate in SB wins don’t make you the best. Wait till he’s consistent long enough in his career before anointing him the best.
