  • the lingering question.

    This is a question, we can't avoid it because it needs to be addressed. I do believe Eli's contract is coming up. He will weigh heavy on our salary cap, 2 SB's and stats. will some of you be settled with mediocre years?

    Manning's 2012 cap number counts for $9.6 million now, down from $16.35 million according to the New York Daily News.

      What?

      Eli will retire a Giant.


      I'm lost...

      Lingering question? Amongst who?

          And Peyton Manning will retire a Colt, and Brett Favre, a Packer.

          Nothing is certain.

            That's true that nothing is certain but so far none of the circumstances that led to those 2 leaving are present w/Eli.

              Eli will be making near $20M a year in the next couple of years. Yes, it wil cripple our team by really cutting off the talent around him, but there is nothing you can do. He is our single most important player on our team. Without Eli, this team doesnt win 1 game.

                    I understand your feelings, but you can't say that without knowing who the QB would be.

                      Eli will not be a cap casualty. Ever. Only way he doesn't retire a Giants is if a situation like Peyton or Favre happens where we either can get or have an heir apparent on the roster.

                        That's always the plan isn't it? Looks for who's next in line? Very few players actually stay with one team their entire careers.

                          Favre's situation was very very weird. Eli doesn't appear like a Diva, and I don't believe Mara would push Eli out the door the way Irsay did Peyton.

                            If Eli was getting closer to 40, had a serious injury, and the best QB prospect in decades is in coming in the draft, you bet your butt we'd dump Eli and his 100 million dollar salary.

                              Eli will know when the time comes for him to pack his road warrior bag and slip out the back.
