Peter King thinks Eli Manning did a fine job yesterday even though he didn't win. I'll agree with him and add that I've never seen a game that made me more annoyed that the NFL has such a haphazard way of tracking dropped passes. I wish I could include them in my measurements so poor Eli would rate better. How many passes went right out of the hands of Toomer and Shockey yesterday? I know he caught the touchdown but Shockey is mightily overrated. His hands are horrible.
Given the historical success of undrafted quarterbacks in the NFL, Tony Romo might as well be a national treasure. We look at the impact of developmental leagues on undrafted quarterbacks, and just how many players have tried to break through in a recent season.
