That was... Breathtaking. Absolutely breathtaking. I can't even describe it. Two teams, two great quarterbacks just leaving it all on the field, going back and forth. You never want to end because both teams deserve to win. Saddly it had to come to end but not before we witnessed one of the greatest games of all time. Eli Manning was at the top of his game. Five months ago he was asked if he considered himself to be an elite quarterback, if he considered himself to be in the same class as his both his brother Peyton and Tom Brady. He answered yes and everyone ridiculed him. But tonight, tonight he would not be denied. Tonight he would prove that not only is he in the same class as them but he may have a case for being better than them. He was simply brilliant completing 30 of 40 passes for 296 yards including bullet passes to Hakeem Nicks and a gorgeous rainbow pass on the final drive to Mario Manningham on the final drive for the winning score. On this night he would not be denied and now with 2 rings and him in the prime of his career the question moves from whether or not Eli is elite, to whether we may be witnessing the evolution of the greatest quarterback of all time. I know I'll be watching.
