    That's just a stupid statement. The Packer had Arron Rodgers in the wings. The Colts had Andrew Luck when they let go of Peyton Manning. The 49ers had Steve Young when Joe Montana was traded. If those options had not been their orginzations would have kept them. Without Rodgers Farve would have been welcomed back with open arms. Without Luck Manning would still be playing in the stadium he built. Without Young people wouldn't have seen Montana playing with Marcus Allen. Those legends lost their "life time spot" because the team had OPTIONS. The Giants DON'T right now.

    We have Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib. Do you see the difference here? We aren't getting rid for a first. We defiantly aren't when there is no starter out there to bring in, no quick guarantee. You people have lost your freaking minds.

    The last time we even hinted at something stupid like this Phil Simms retired, Hostetler was already traded and we were stuck with Dave Brown. Oh but we could rebuild in the draft! Yeah right.

    Keep playing your Madden Games boys.

      • He has never been injured in his career. He could play for another 7-8 years. My answer is NO.

        • aaaand there's the predictable outrage over people calmly discussing a hypothetical situation.

            Especially when we have no damn options! People think guys like Rodgers and Luck show up all the damn time, they don't!. Most of us old enough had to wait until 1979 before we got something similar to a long term solution after Tittle retired, and despite what history says today, back then we didn't even know the Simms would amount to anything. People forget that we booed when Simms was drafted. People forget that he was "Prince Valiant" for awhile. People forgot that Simms was sat by Parcells for Scott Brunner!

            People who talk about how horrible Eli is now obviously didn't live threw the early years or Simms. Either that or they are so blinded by nostalgia or are so arrogant about how good they are playing General Manager on Madden that they don't seem to understand that having a Two Time Superbowl MVP QB is a problem that most every other team wished they had.

            • Remember him?
              Take a good look, this could be our future if you want Eli gone so bad.
              Franchise QB's don't grow on trees.

                It would be terrible. We may have a 3 game stretch where we get outscored 110-30. Oh the humanity!

                Wait.........

                  If he was good still, i'd say ya. Plus he can't move in the pocket at all. Get something why you still can. Everyone is happy with ELI's career as a whole, but come on!!! Why are people being so stubborn about this? Its like common sense almost.

                      • If the ownership decided it was time to clean house and rebuild (new GM, coaches etc.), a team would probably be willing to trade a first rounder for him.


                        “Basically just stay with your man,” cornerback Janoris Jenkins said. “Follow him everywhere you go. Even if he goes to the bathroom, follow him.”

                          Based on what? I bet there are many teams that would line up for his services. And replace him with who? An unproven rookie? A castoff from another team? Smh, be careful what you wish for.

                              • Ask yourself this: Does anybody think Eli is "replaceable"?

                                And before you answer, think of how our system works, and think of what we have right now.

                                People may look at other QB's and say wow omg they would excel in our offense! I don't think so, especially not a rookie.
