08:05 AM ET 01.21 | Amani Toomer didn't like what he saw from old battery mate Eli Manning this past season. Manning threw for 4,002 yards and 31 touchdowns but had a league-high 25 interceptions, with some of them going off the hands of his own receivers. "I think he took a step sideways," Toomer said while signing autographs at the Broadway play "Lombardi" last week. "I think in some ways he got better and in some ways he got worse. Twenty-five interceptions. I don't care how many tipped interceptions, it is not good."

I doubt Peyton's impressed with his brother, either.

Is there anyone who is NOT disappointed with Eli? Other than maybe his agent? He was hyped as the "best of the Mannings," but he seems to be struggling to stay in the middle of the pack as far as QBs go.

What great insight, Amani! You should be on TV!

Now, suppose all this Spam originates in China. While Hu is at the White House, shmoozing with The Prez, he sends out the order to chill the Spam for a couple of days, so as to not rock the boat. Now, he's on his way home and the floodgates open again. Is that it?

Oreos thought so.

Yeah, somebody actually said that before Eli's rookie year. I certainly agree it was crap, even then when nobody really knew him.

The guy can't even endorse products as well as his big brother.

Toomer speaks the truth. They will listen! I hope next year will be a better year. Thinking the Giants better go after a good wr free agent.

January 21, 2011  08:34 AM ET

Eli just isn't his brother. never will be.
