    but by folding in this year, they spread the guaranteed money over an extra year...right?

    I hate the cap

    Wilson's deal was a forgone conclusion...it was all Kabuki theater, with everyone performing their role well.
  3. I've said Eli is going to get signed and that as...

    I've said Eli is going to get signed and that as far as I can see, there is no hurry and that it can all be done in 2016.

    But being human, I don't understand the finer points of the cap. If there...

    That's where I struggle.

    Let's say he's decided he wants to get away from the Giants...his behavior cannot be a positive for any team out there. Understandable, maybe. A positive...not even...
  5. True, but I suspect he's playing his last card -...

    True, but I suspect he's playing his last card - trying to get the Giants to agree to pay him even for the weeks he's out. Paying a player while he's on NFI is very common, and JPP's agent must know...
  6. Rosie, Your an honest guy...help me out here...

    Rosie,

    Your an honest guy...help me out here by putting yourself in JPP's shoes for 1 second.

    Would you sign the tender now, knowing with absolute certainty that you are now an employee of the...
  7. Right...If JPP doesn't trust what he's being told...

    Right...If JPP doesn't trust what he's being told it can only end badly, and the team can't really rely on anything other than a trusted medical opinion.
    A player may have a reason to miss games,...
  8. OK...but just because Nick and JPP said that does...

    OK...but just because Nick and JPP said that does not mean that it is medically true.

    If you have ever rehabbed from a devastating injury, you know that feeling when you think you are either...

    I always appreciate a guy who basically shrugs when asked how a big negotiation is going.
  10. JPP can wait until week 10 if he wants, and the...

    JPP can wait until week 10 if he wants, and the only recourse the Giants have is to revoke the tag, making him a free agent.
  11. This is correct...could cost him roughly 1/4 of...

    This is correct...could cost him roughly 1/4 of his salary.
    He has no reason to sign until he knows he will be cleared to play.
  12. OK...if I'm in JPP's shoes, and you are all gonna...

    OK...if I'm in JPP's shoes, and you are all gonna hate this, this is roughly what I would be doing.

    I can't sign the tender, because signing it puts me under contract and that opens up me up to...
  13. Well...I think you will agree that a lot of sacks...

    Well...I think you will agree that a lot of sacks sure does seem to solve that issue for many teams.
  14. I can only hold out the notion that he was...

    I can only hold out the notion that he was struggling under the stress and made some bad decisions. And I'm willing to say it's the kind of thing the Giants should just let go, but he absolutely...

    Folks...that is a genuine coyote fur coat that man is wearing.

    Gonna say that again...coyote.

    That's a fur a man's man wears.

    So realistically...15 to 20 players who do large scale national commercials?
    I've seen Watt more than Eli where I live, and Rodgers way more than either. Peyton's the King, and I assume there is...

    You know there's a pretty good chance you are going to lose this little chestnut soon, right?

    Doesn't really matter if it's 4 or 6, or even more, so long as it's front loaded.

    If Eli's cap hit goes down while the actual cap number goes up, then he becomes progressively a better bargain for...

    I have never understood the thought behind asking any agent any question ever.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that the response is always going to be combination of "give him more money"...

    Although I am not an immediate fan of doing a deal now, there is a way to look at a deal negotiated now and see how it makes sense, and is to the advantage of both the Giants and Eli.

    Sign a 3 or...
  21. I get what you are saying, but right now, I think...

    I get what you are saying, but right now, I think the competition is Eli versus Eli. The question at hand is can Eli perform well in this new offense. If the answer is "no", then Nassib my well be...

    No...you were clear on the Nassib thing, at least to me.
    In my original post, I said that whatever negotiations happen with Eli are very unlikely to have anything to do with Nassib - the...
  23. Right...by any chance would you be inclined...

    Right...by any chance would you be inclined personally to send Eli packing?

    I ask because nothing you say is wrong/false, but all of it is filtered in a way to make a given outcome seem more...
  24. So Eli not being signed is one of those things...

    So Eli not being signed is one of those things that has a set of valid reasons on either side, and people tend to look at the ones that support their own feelings on Eli.

    Here's 3 things to...

    Not for nothing, but wouldn't it be reasonable to expect a QB who has played in one system for literally a decade be slower to adapt to a new system than a guy who never really played under any...
