News and Notes - Eli Manning is "Fake" Good?

This dude argues that Eli Manning isn’t the real deal and I’m not so sure how much I disagree with him. He says,
Eli Manning plays quarterback like your 7-year-old cousin playing Madden. He makes all the throws — the chicken-with-his-head-cut-off bullet, the one where he lobs it over the middle and his receiver makes a sliding catch in traffic, and finally the definitive Madden throw where he was panicked by two unblocked blitzers and tapped a receiver button as fast as he possibly could. Of course, like Madden (at least, Madden '04), Plaxico Burress caught the ball with little or no interference from the defensive back, ran over him, and waltzed into the end zone. Exactly how they drew it up.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is being inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. Other notable Texans being inducted: Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds, soccer great Mia Hamm, Cowboys Ring of Honor member Don Perkins, Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Moon and Texas native and OU great Billy Sims. Jerry, why is it that the only good players to come out of OU are from Texas? You just can’t win can you?

top ten Q's! does that even make you good? I am just saying alot of people seem like they are sold on Eli after the win over the Iggles. I however am not one of them. Eli still hasn't impressed me. Sure he has some great qualities but I am just saying let's wait and see as this season goes on...
