Ouch. One of those games where lack of execution snowballed into an embarrassment.

Fact is Eli has not been up to par. Those long passes that worked so well last year are always overthrown.

We arguably had more problems last year but Eli was the constant, so he really needs to step up.


If Eli connects on nicks on that bomb, we have a different ball game but thats been the theme in second half of the season.


Yes Eli is the reason our season is going down the tubes. His long ball has been horribly innacurate this year for whatever reason (or at least from around week 7 or so). There were 2 balls in the 2nd Washington game where Nicks on one, Cruz on the other, were wide open. He missed the throw, one long, one short and both fell incomplete. There was a pass in yesterday's game to Cruz that was thrown short even though Cruz was open. Would've made the score 7-14 (I believe) but Eli threw it short and Cruz got lit up and sat out a couple of plays.

Years past, eli has arguably been the best deep thrower in the league. This season he hasnt been as consistent.
