Paying a QB $20mil+ and also paying all of these guys is just not feasible. Either you keep a 39 year old Eli and dump a mid to late 20's high level player or you do the opposite. If Eli plays like Tom Brady the next 2 years, then maybe. But he has not shown that level of play at any time in his career so there is no reason to think he will now.
    If the Giants remain competitive... than replacing Eli will not be an option. Remember.. Dumping your QB is the start of a rebuild. During a rebuild.. those "high level" players.. dont really matter.

    Until they make a large investment in a new qb (like a 1st round pick) than the end of Eli's Career is NOT in sight. That is usually the only way to switch QBs without an extended stay in the cellar of the NFC.

    The point I am trying to make is.. those "High level" players.. really are not doing anything for you without your QB is all. You can not maximize these players value without a franchise QB.


    Besides... Pugh and Richburg are probably more expandable than you think... They are not near the caliber of Odell or Landon.
    Why the Giants will win the SuperBowl!!!

      If we extend him it will mean we're doing great as a team and need to keep it going, if the team is struggling he'll be replaced in my opinion.

        I doubt Eli gets another extension especially after JR is already on record stating that Eli is on the 'back-nine' of his career and they've already started thinking about the next QB.

        The Giants look to be going 'all in' to try and win another SB before Eli is done, but people need to start getting used to the idea that these are Eli's final years as a Giant.
        One of these teams is not like the others

They cannot pay a QB $20mil per with the DL contracts and close to $20mil for Odell and close to $15 probably for Landon. Its not feasible.
          His new contract wouldn't cost nearly that much I'm sure.

            Eli will never ever play for any other team than the NYG. Giants ownership will not let him walk away anyway. Both sides will come to an agreement on either retirement or an extension. Eli is far from finished.


            Everyone is so ready to get rid of a reliable top 10 QB only to "search" for his replacement.

              So what do you think he would play for if things go well the next few years? Cause if he plays at the level he played last year, I dont think he will get another deal.

                Only Eli can answer that but I assume you once 2019 comes both sides will collectively get together and talk about their options and go from there. He will never make it to Free Agency.

                  I also say this with the hypothetical that we win another Super Bowl or two.


                  This is all health permitted and assuming the core of the team stays strong. Which is something Jerry Reese may need to keep in the back of his head. Yes we have a closing window but we don't really know just how fast or how small/big that window actually is.
                  Let me see if I have this straight.

                  If we win another Super Bowl (or two), and if Eli can stay healthy, while the "core" of the team stays strong; you are going out on a limb to predict Eli will resign with the Giants at age 39? Is that correct? Are you sure there aren't any other conditions you want to add?

                  I'll never understand why some of you just can't appreciate the guy for who he is and what he's accomplished.

                  The idea that you must envision his career as a storybook speaks volumes. And if those storybook expectations are not met will he have failed?

                  I doubt any of you hold yourself to such ridiculously high standards, and why you do it to this guy is something you probably need to come to grips with.
                  Torque it till it breaks, then back off a 1/4 turn.

                    I like chapter 42 and 46, I've read it a bunch of times.

                      I agree with that. I believe he will retire if they let him know they are moving forward. I think the 1st round pick in 2018 will be his successor ready to take over for Eli in 2019.

                        I dont think he'll get a contract, well, if his play continues to deteriorate.

                        However, if he improves his play im all for keeping him.

                          I think if Watson is there at 23 we take him. I think he actually compares to Eli quite a bit.

                          If he's not there I hope we dont take any other prospect with the exception of Webb, and him perhaps in the middle rounds.

                            I agree in regards to this year. Next year however, that QB class looks strong. D'arnold, Lamar Jackson, Rosen and my personal favorite Mason Rudolph. I think we take one in round 1 in 2018.

                              It won't be about the money. It will be about if he can still play at the same level at age 40.

                                I think its also about which players we may possibly lose if we give our 39 year old QB another deal at big $.
