    Worst thing about not making the playoffs? Getting bombarded with these repetetive and tired Eli threads

      This can't be serious.

        Peyton had an MVP year this year and he is 36. Most elite QB's are good until 38ish these days if they can avoid injury.

          cant you just accept that Eli is what he is?? he is a very good QB that plays great and plays poorly at times. He is clutch but also dumb at times.....
          He has two SBs

            I don't follow college football at all but I hear there isn't a good QB in this draft anyway. But i say they should draft a QB to take Eli's place around the age of 35 and let him ride the bench for 2 years like Rodgers did.

              Problem is to find starting QBs they need to be drafted early, usually 1st round.

              Can the giants afford to spend a 1st round pick to get a guy to backup Eli?
              I agree.....about 5 years. And since Eli is more of a thinking man's QB, I wouldn't be suprised if he could tack on another year or two.

              In the next couple years, the Giants should be looking at a new QB to draft and bench for a season or two.....kind of how Green Bay groomed Aaron Rodgers.

                  Huh? Of course he is a very good QB. And I feel he can become an all time great with a couple more SB. Sort of like what most people were saying about Brady after his 3rd. If a guy like brady whos a product of his system can be considered an all time great then I would certainly put Eli on the same boat if he wins a SB or 2 more.

                        If Eli stays the QB he is...which is great with inconsistencies and gets to win 1 or 2 more SBs with the Giants he won't be a better QB then he is now he will be the same with more rings.....
                        Brady is a better QB then Eli without rings, Same goes for Marino, Peyton, and several others.
                        My point is Eli is what he is....He is not going to get better or worse and the ampount of rings doesnt matter in that regard

                          If a solid QB fell to us this year, I would draft him. If Reese has a QB ranked high on his board, and he slips to our 2nd or 3rd pick, I could see him picking him. Im not sure he has any QBs this year that high though, but if he does, it wouldnt shock me. Remember, Eli is not Reese's pick, it was EA's. Reese, Im sure, would love to make a splash at QB if given the opportunity.

                          And before all you guys bash me for saying that, think about this. If someone Reese see's as a game changer like Kaepernick or Dalton or Wilson falls to us in the 2nd or 3rd rounds, would you get upset? I know I wouldnt. Maybe Ryan Nassib is the next great QB and he just isn't ranked high, and maybe Reese see's that. Then in a year or 2, Eli starts declining big time and getting injured a bunch. Wouldnt it be great to have that?

                          Eli is 32, not 25.

                          Just my opinion and I'm sure I'm on the minority side on this one.

                          As a matter of fact, look at what Harbough did with Alex Smith. Is Smith a great QB? No. Is he better then Eli? Hell no. But he was doing great this year when he lost his job to Kaep because Kaep provided that extra dimention. Alex Smith was pretty solid the past 2 years. He led the league in passer rating this year before getting hurt. And Harbough still pulled him. Coughlin would never do that though obviously.

                            I'm a little confused with the last sentence of the first paragraph. Because it was Accorsi's pick and not Reese's, are you suggesting Reese would have not drafted Eli or trade for him?
                            Mood: WOOF!

                              Of course he's going to be better and greater with more rings. That's one factor in ranking a QB's greatness. Eli will eventually have the numbers mixed in with the great ones but having a couple more SB will arguably bring him over the top.

                                I don't see Reese trading for Eli at all. Reese is more conservative, and Accorsi went hard after Eli because of what happened to him with Elway. Ernie was not going about to let his guy slip away again.
