While I can agree with that sentiment, pocket passers arent going anywhere as long as the Tom Bradys and Peyton Mannings of the world are effective. Eli is more mobile than both of them.

Tom Brady is a mobile QB which was shown in the Eagles game 2 weeks ago in Philly. Peyton and Eli on the otherhand has no mobility at all if they are not well protected. Brady can atleast move around in the pocket if he feels some defensive heat.

Brady isnt mobile...or rather, how are we defining mobile? I think Eli is at least as mobile as Brady. Eli has shown he can move around in the pocket...I have also seen defenders touch Brady, and he falls in a heap.

Brady does run when push come to shove. If no one is open and he has a open hole to run through he will take it. Eli on the otherhand will throw it out of bounds or into the hands of a defending player if no one is open on 3rd and 8

We will have to disagree here. I dont think Brady is mobile, and Eli is at least as mobile. I have seen Eli take off and run, I have seen Brady do the same. But I have also seen Brady fall on the ground at the first sign of pressure. However, neither compares to Rogers.

You are delusional if you think the problem with the Giants is Eli Manning.
Hey, Michael Vick is mobile, maybe you would rather have him over Eli?
Wait, don't answer, I'm afraid to hear your answer.

Eli not mobile? Tell that to Brady and the Patriots...how do you think Tyree caught that pass against his helmet? Eli scrambled out of the pocket and out of the clutches of the Pats defense. He's not the most agile or graceful QB, but he's not the worst either.

I do agree that he tosses up some very dangerous passes when he's in trouble. He needs to learn how to throw it out of bounds without making it so close.

I have not liked Gilbride's play calls tonight--too many draw plays that were not working...

I didn't like Coughlin's decision to bench Bradshaw in the first half. There are other ways to penalize a player for breaking rules. Shooting yourself in the foot when the season is on the line is not one of them.
