  • Eli let go of some of those $$$

    I know that now people say "Eli won us two super bowls" , and "Eli is elite" and without a doubt Eli had an awesome season. But really the first super bowl was won in large part by Brandon Jacobs being an absolute beast and defence of course.

    Eli manning has plenty of ways to make money, Toyota commercials, citizen echo drive commercials , etc, etc. Eli manning earned his money this year there is no doubt about it, but I think he should take a pay cut. He also earned his respect across the league.

    There was many years when the giants run game and defence carried him. But now guys like Osi, Jacobs, Ross, Manningham, cruz need money. I think Eli should let go of a little $ to bring help bring those guys back.

    Seems kinda unfair to me that when Eli was throwing wobblers, Jacobs was pounding everyone to dust to get guys into the box. But now that the shoe is on the other foot Eli is hoarding all the $.

    A couple million could probably keep Ross in NY. What is that like three Toyota commercials Eli? You got two cars as super bowl MVP. Share the wealth.
    Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

    i could understand wanting eli to redo his contract to free up money for other guys, but ur reasoning is absolutely moronic.

    not even going to try and explain it to you...but pretty much, moronic describes this post perfectly

        According to Sports Illustrated's survey of the highest-paid American athletes, Manning ranked third in 2011 endorsement income among active NFL players at $7 million, behind only his older brother Peyton ($15 million) and Tom Brady ($10 million). Eli's football salary for 2011 was $8.5 million.

          your idea is ok but your explaination or reasoning is a bit nutty.......




          Instead you could say:......." Eli, as the leader of this team,could bewilling to restructure if he had to keep some of the core players on the Giants. As a vital part of a team he lead to 2 super bowls whileearning 2 MVPs along the way."

              I never said greedy. I am just saying that Eli did get carried for a while in many ways. It is not like he came into the league firing on all cylinders. He had a super solid running game to cover for him. And now the first year that the running game was not good.....none of our RB's deserve any money.

                He is the only untouchable member of the team. If he wants too he can, otherwise it's gotta be other players who are actually heavily over paid.

                  Tell him to take a paycut or what?

                  Giants have absolutely no barganing chip at all.

                  You dont ask the QB who just won the SB to take a pay cut.

                    I'm sorry bro, but asking a 2 time SB MVP who is still young and healthy and coming off a SB win to take a "paycut" is laughable.




                    Eli may "volunteer" a restructure but NOBODY is going to ask him to "share the wealth".

                    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                        But what does "restructure" mean? That he would make $10mil this year, and $30mil next year?

                          That's extremely irrelevant at this point. Eli is playing Much better than when Strahan was here.

                          I think if he took a pay cut that would be terrific but he's the last person that "should" take a pay cut.

                            Sorry. I have to agree with him. What's more important, a few more millions u won't miss anyway or helping keep some guys that can poss help u not have to rebuild and maybe win another title
                            Football has been very, very good to us.
                            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                              Yeah it is. Either you're trolling or you have no idea how the league works; I hope it's the former.
