Phil Simms needs to make up his mind about Eli Manning.
On CBS Sports Network's "NFL Monday QB" -- hosted by NFL.com's own Adam Schein -- Simms was less laudatory when asked if the slumping Manning was elite.
"No, he is not one of the elites," Simms said, via the New York Daily News. "Because when I hear the word elite, I'm thinking about guys that can make unbelievable plays on the field by themselves. There are very few quarterbacks in that category.
"I always bring up Aaron Rodgers," Simms continued. "He is one of them. So yes, Eli has been a tremendous team player. He has been MVP of the Super Bowl twice. I know that. But the way I look at it, the answer is no."
It's fairly remarkable this conversation is still happening. Who cares if Manning is "elite"? What does that even mean? I much rather have the rings than be included in some imaginary club.
