But Eli is in the playoffs and playoff Eli is nothing to sneeze at. For some reason, Eli suddenly remembers how to play football during the playoffs. Somehow Eli has beat the Patriots twice in the Super Bowl to become a two-time winning Super Bowl quarterback. I’m still hoping for my Steelers and Big Ben to knock the Patriots off of their mantle, but if they don’t, I need Eli to put on his cape and take the NFC (Sorry Russell and Dak) and beat the Patriots. I only wrote this post to post that photo of Eli. He is a quintessential New Jersey dad.
