Yesterday we mentioned the composure and toughness of Eli under the duress of that 49ers defensive line.
Today the WSJ gives Eli accolades on his performance.
Eli becomes the VOCAL leader by lecturing his teammates about the need for 100% focus on their preparation this week. Too much distraction and hoopla will be going on in Indy next week. They’re all business this week.
An interesting piece in NYT on the preparation of the FG unit leading up to the NFC Championship game, lots of wet balls and mud. Maybe they saw too many replays of the Trey Junkin snap and Matt Allen non-hold?
Note: A post will follow later this a.m. on an analysis of the offense and their failure to adjust to the 49er pass rush in the 2nd half.
