Eli is above average at best, not elite. He gets hot every 4 years or so at the end of the season and during the post-season but that's it. As much as I love saying Peyton is a great "regular season" quarterback, there's no doubt that he's objectively far better than Eli can ever hope to be. Give Peyton Strahan, Tuck, Osi, JPP, etc. on the other side of the ball and see what happens..
