Mike opened the show with a bit of Rutgers, ignored his boy McCain's performance last night and then quickly moved ahead to jumping on the NY papers for comparing Eli Manning to Peyton:
"Here's what the problem is. If you have a slow day in October, this is what you come up with. You came up with "Is Eli better than Peyton.." there's somebody with too much time on their hands...I mean now we want to take Eli and in his short body of work, we want to put him ahead of his brother, who is already a first ballot Hall of Famer...(laughing) Is Eli better than Peyton already? (laughing)...I mean, that's where we're going?...Let me put this on the table: Eli is the what best quarterback in the NFL? I used to defend Eli, but now this is getting comical....But I now have to hear that Eli has now reached Peyton status?...You would rank Eli where?"
Uhh, Mike you just accused the writer who wrote this story as "somebody with too much time on their hands" and that you know it's a slow sports day when stories like this are being thrown around...But you end your rant by opening up what will most likely become an entire day long debate about Eli Manning...So in essence, you owe the writer of that article a big THANK YOU for providing content for you all day..
