Elway had a horrible first year in the NFL......karma caught up with him, penance was served.
Whether or not Eli can overcome that O-line he'll be playing behind along with the scruitny of the NYC media remains to be seen.
Just a guess here, but I don't think it's going to be very pretty initially
He will struggle, no doubt. All rookie QB's do, especially when thrown to the wolves on below average teams. His big brother did throw for 3700 yds his rookie season, and they still went 3-13.
