ELIte or eLITE?
Living in NJ, I'm exposed to a TON of Giants coverage. The new nickname going around is "ELIte". It's cute, but I don't necessarily think it's accurate. Eli's 2 INTs were costly and one directly led to a SF TD that turned out to be the deciding factor. He did play well against a stout San Fran D, but those mistakes stick out to me. So many Giants fans are quick to say that those INTs are placed squarely on the shoulders of the WRs for running the wrong routes, but how long are we going to hear that excuse before blame starts getting shifted to Eli? At some point, as the QB, he is going to have to figure out how to reel those guys in and have them play coordinated football. Eli needs to start working harder with those guys to get on the same page. His 20+ INT season was largely blamed on his WRs running poor routes and if that's the case this year again, I'm losing sympathy quickly. What say you?
