Eli strikes back, and Big Blue View Nation rejoices!

In case you missed it, Tiki criticized Eli during halftime show of the game Sunday (he did have some nice things to say too). Basically Tiki claimed that Eli was uncomfortable being a leader and that he wasn't sure that he'd ever be able to "be a leader of men".

Well, Eli responded:

"I don't always believe everything Tiki says. You know I feel very comfortable and I saw the deal last night and it seemed very rehearsed, kind of like his pre-game speeches."

He then went on to say:

"I feel confident in what I'm doing in getting the team ready and if you ask any of the players around here who the leader of the offense is they're going to say me."

This is good stuff. 1st, I'm glad someone spoke up about Tiki's B.S. Enough is enough with Tiki throwing his old teammates and coaches under the bus. It's obvious that his TV persona is more important to him than his friendships. 2nd, I love the confidence Eli is showing. It appears that he's making big steps this year both in his play and his leadership.
