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.
Our offseason Four Downs series ends with a look at the NFC West's biggest remaining holes and their most notable UDFA signings. The Rams and 49ers have to kick-start their passing games, Arizona's offense lacks a big dimension, and the Seahawks continue to rely on Russell Wilson's magic tricks.
