Eli is cool. That is to say that he is calm under pressure. Not cool in the Fonz sense of the word. In fact he seems to be a bit of a dork.

Watch him march the G's right down the field in North Texas on Jerruh's big night, however, and you see a guy who never panics, makes plays on his own, and is not surprised when he does.

How do you even answer the question of who was the best QB out of the 2005 draft? I just cannot get over how good Eli and Ben are. Rivers also has had his moments.

The answer to the question is, "Who cares?" All three are great and it is fun to watch all of them coming into their own. They are inspiring. I am going to go lick some cookies right now. Me and my brother have got some serious skills.
