The way the Giants finished down the stretch and made it to the Super Bowl as a Wild Card team playing arguably the Best Offense and the Best Defense at on the Road? I think he's now a ring away from fully securing the "elite" label. Eli enters my Top 5 if he pulls this one off.
Honorable Mention: Roethlisberger
Interesting, Roethli gets a honorable mention (sounds like Nr. 6) though he won 2 SBs and played in a third one...but if Eli wins, he'll be in the top5? Sorry but both franchises got very good defenses and can run the ball. And Eli has very good receivers around him.
So, if one wanna call Eli=Elite, he has to mention Ben as well.

As expected, the Sports Media is now labeling Eli "ELITE". -Eli didn't even prove s**t in that game against us to deserve any credit towards "Elite" status, he couldn't even drive the ball down field on two desperate drives in OT; that's not "Elite".
To be fair he DID throw for 300+ yards on us with his running game getting what, less than 60 yards?
Throw a lot of but who cares about that? He was only a little bit (=W) better than Alex.
