    This morning Boomer Esiason was talking about Eli and while he acknowledges he's probably a HOF'er, he's just too inconsistent to be considered an all-time great. I agree.

    Eli doesn't need more rings to get that monkey off his back, he needs to play at a high level consistently to do that.
    Torque it till it breaks, then back off a 1/4 turn.

        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
        However, he is a better post season QB than Peyton is and he is a better post season QB than Marino ever was.

        He is not as good a QB as Peyton, Aaron, Drew or Marino. However, he is a more successful QB than all of them because he has been able to lead his team to SuperBowl victories more than any of them have.

          You open up a good point here. In my opinion, I don’t think JR would’ve made the trade for Eli and we would now have Ben if he was there and not Accorsi. I am very happy Accorsi made the trade and we got Eli but I don’t think JR would’ve made the trade for him. Althoug I prefer Eli as our QB, I don’t think we would’ve gone wrong with Ben either.

                I forgot that it wasn't Reese's pick. Very interesting on Reese's part.

                  Did Boomer cringe when he said Eli is a HOF?

                    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'd say 5 more as well, but there are good QB's to be found out there in the 2 - 7 rounds when it's time to start thinking about another QB. If they see another Kaepernick out there in the 2nd round, I wouldn't mind drafting and developing in another 2 or 3 years.

                      If a good QB is available then we should draft him. We can’t take for granted and assume that Eli will never miss a game. We also can’t delude ourselves that David Carr will be able to get the job done if Eli gets hurt.

                        you are wrong. it will make his career more successful but it wont make a better QB. At this point in time he is what he is.....

                          Exactly....more successful....thats the key word...

                          Like how many music artisst absolutely suck but they are successful because their music sells any way....
                          successs does not always equate to talent and or level of skill

                            Eli's throw to Manningham in the Super Bowl was a level of skill and other throws as well. He can throw some goofy ones in there though (that's where the inconsistency comes from) but he has skill set to play the position.

                              I think he'll still be the Giants starting QB in his late 30's.

                                I am not saying he doesnt. All I am saying if Eli stays the same QB he is winning more rings will not make him a "better" QB physically. It will only make give a a more successful career as a QB. Guys like Brady and Peyton will always be better QBs than Eli.
