    How did Peyton get hurt?

    Maybe the biggest story of the year and I have no idea how he got hurt. I know he played against the Jets in their last game of the season. Is that the game he got hurt? Forgive the ignorance and I know I'm way late, but I know I never figured out how he got hurt and was just curious.

    Something that's been building up for years. I think the first surgery took place after the 2009 season. They believe the origins can be traced back to a 2006 game against Washington when he took a brutal hit that bent him back. I think I have that one on DVD-R somewhere.

    Wow, I hope Eli doesn't have any lingering effects of the Niners game when he might have taken the worst beating of his career.

    The play Still references is a cheap shot by a Redskin D-lineman who bent Manning back after a play was over. No flag obviously.

    I think it was lugging an 80 pound head around for 35 years. Had to get that one out of the way.

    They certainly touched Flacco. The Giants' O-line isn't very good. But I hope you're right. If that's the case the Giants have a very good chance to win the game.

    Flacco had awful pocket presence. None of those were quick sacks.

    that's what i would believe as well.

    if he was "bent back", the only thing that would affect his neck (where the surgeries were) is being bent over in that area.
    of course, something like this could just come naturally over time/use, not 1 single hit or "injury".
    he is 36 now... i know in the long lives we live now it doesn't seem old. but there are people out there that have spinal issues without having suffered big time injuries for years on end.

    While Eli usually gets it out quickly (though he's taken a sack over throwing a pick more this year), he also had a few sacks against SF where he held on to the ball too long.

    I expect Eli to have 350 yards+ passing. That being said, Pats will get to him a few times. Not sure why SF fan thinks that won't happen.
    Picking them off... one at a time!

    I thought he would have 350+ yards passing last game too, he didn't even have 300 yards, granted he now has Nicks playing for him. It wouldn't surprise me if BB comes up with some ingenious game plan and shuts down the offense.
