08:06 AM ET 09.20 | Tough crowd, right? Nine plays into the home opener. That's all it took before the MetLife Stadium crowd turned on its quarterback tonight, which might just be the fastest in "Monday Night Football" history. Hey, who said this Giants offense wouldn't set any records? Eli Manning insisted he did not hear the boos coming at him from all directions, and even managed to do so with somewhat of a straight face. But sitting in a luxury suite high above the playing field, the noise was crystal clear to the old quarterback who raised him. "When I was a rookie, I played in Green Bay and I heard them boo Bart Starr," Archie Manning said, dismissing any talk that the Giants fans had lost their patience too early. "From that day, I said there is no sacred star."

Fans at games tend to get carried away. They've been pounding down brews in the parking lot for four hours before they ever reach the first beer concession.

Not every QB can be Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.

Didn't Eli say he was in Tom Brady's class, not too long ago.

Peyton gets stem cell therapy. Eli needs brain cell therapy. He was aweful. Defense won it, and specifically the front seven.

Only if they went to school together.

He must've attended a Brady QB Camp. And he probably failed.

The whole team stinks.

With Sage on IR, the Giants backup is David Carr. Be careful what you wish for, Giants fans.

Who can afford to drink inside the stadium?

It's obvious what they need to do here. I suggest putting in David Carr. He throws a tighter spiral than Eli, and is used to adversity.

$9 a beer at FedEx.

He played well in preseason too

Honestly, the little I saw last night, Eli was putting passes on the money... Receivers actually bobbled the passes like they weren't used to them being so accurate.

QUOTE(#19):

Eil's problem, as its always been is his inaccuracy. Otherwise, he's a solid qb

Inaccuracy doesn't get you very far in the NFL. But, that's kind of what the Giants fans are complaining about.

People who can afford tickets and parking and jerseys and stuff.

And most of the time it's cheap beer that costs less than $9 for a six-pack!
