    Fair point.

    1) I will admit that Eli isn't the best in the redzone. Having said that, a lot of that has to do with play calling. Kevin Gilbride is known as one of the worst red zone play callers in the league. He will often run stupid draw plays on 3rd and goal. Its not because he doesn't trust Eli. It has more to do with him just being a schmuck. We definitely leave a ton of points off the board, but in the 4th quarter...Eli tends to call his own shots more often, and that red zone percentage spikes up. After all, Eli did just set a record for TDs in the 4th quarter.

    2) The Giants still had more yards and points than the Cowboys at the end of the day. Eli is truly elite in between the 20s (top 4-5), but isn't quite elite in the redzone (He isn't 20th in the league in that area...he is somewhere in the top 10-15 in reality, but he isn't a spectacular redzone Qb...I'll admit that). Still though...more points and more yards at the end of the day than Romo in 2011.
