It was my opinion and I have been saying this for a while here, Eli is as good as Brees, Brady and Rodgers. Guess what, I changed my mind I think he’s better. He does not have to get into a rhythm he can wing it and sling it as good as anybody ever and I mean EVER. I have seen everybody from Johnny Unitas to Joe Namath to Montana to Elway, I’ve seen them all and Eli is as good as any of them if not better. If he could run a bit they would already be making his bust for the hall of fame.
Unfortunately I was not feeling well because of a bad back and could not enjoy the game, but I watched it anyway. Now that Eli has the receivers and they are all contributing and injury free you can see how good he is and always was. Finally he has the talent and they are letting him run the show.
I am however very unhappy the way Jacobs is running the ball. Even though he scored that TD he is running technically very unsound. It worked once and it was lucky we scored, the way he’s attacking the LOS is not correct and he has to change that for next week. That defense is not going to allow the things Atlanta and Green Bay let the Giants get away with. It won’t work so although it was a great win we still need work on technique to beat that niner defense next week.
I know our defense can handle the Niner offense, but we have to tighten up the offense a bit. Also Delvin Thomas cannot run routs, terrible, please leave him off the active list. And Tynes, I never liked him as a player and he has to focus better, he almost gave the game away.
Last but not least, those referees have to be suspended including the booth people. The way the game was called you would think they all had money on the game. That was obvious and totally unacceptable. If Wellington Mara was alive that would have never happened.
