Finally our D gets some credit. The thing I've been most upset about with the post-analysis is how people have been so eager to deify Eli and trash Alex, they've ignored or downplayed the spectacular performance by our D, one of the most remarkable 2nd-half adjustments I've ever seen. Contrary to the "experts," Eli did not have a good game. His yardage per attempt was horrendous, he threw two terrible balls that should've been picked, and he was awful in the second half. Outside of drives starting inside his opponent's 30 yard line, he led his team to a measly 10 points. However, this is a credit to our D, because Eli is an elite QB and would've shredded most defenses. He just happened to be facing probably the best D the NFL has seen since the 2000 Ravens, if not the 85 Bears.
Have never been so proud to root for a group of guys as I was Sunday watching our D.
