    It is all of that. Eli was seen as the franchise and they wanted to put him under wraps. We always talk about what the team wants/does but rarely acknowledge there is an agent (and Archie) pulling strings on the other side.

      he wont take a pay cut and shouldnt either...
      the Giants made the deal now they have to figure things out....

        Hey there. You are absolutely right. They can massge it as best they can, but, in the end, as Harooni says, it is what it is.

          Super Bowl MVPs don't come cheap...and I bet no one will trade those two Super Bowls for any Giants money. It's this "what have you done for me lately?" that's the issue. Some fans seem to be suffering from short-term memory or selective amnesia.

            Guess we are entitled to a 20million dollar performance next year, I look forward to it

              It doesn't matter, he's under contract and he's entitled to get every dime.

                Was he underpaid in the years we won the Super Bowl?

                    Deservedly so. As I said, I doubt anyone wants to trade those 2 Super Bowls, so you got the 2 Super Bowls for your money.

                        true it does redeem the cost

                        one could argue did we need a $15mill qb to score under 20 points each superbowl. i think a game manager and good running game would do it.

                          +1

                          the least of our problems is that we have a 2 time SB MVP QB who we're paying $20 mill a season.

                          regardless of how he played this year, there's no way in hell we win that SB without him. so for people suggesting that Eli somehow isn't worth what he's getting paid is completely insane. there's a whole bunch of $15-20 mill QBs in the NFL, and we're lucky to have one of them.

                            I doubt the Giants will even be close enough to sniff the Super Bowl if you have a game manager in the first place. Eli had ridiculous post-season numbers on his two runs to the Super Bowl. He earned it. Or you can have Mark Sanchez's contract instead:

                              It's confusing how it's paid out, but you're right.
