It's incredible how the local media and Giants fans spin it. Eli had 17 turnovers during the Giants first 6 games which resulted in an 0-6 record, and all I heard was complaints about the Giants defense or Giants offensive line. Hell, most fans were picking on Wilson for his fumbles. Seventeen...turnovers...in...6 games. Think about that. Matt Schaub, the Texans' franchise QB, was booed and benched, and his season stats were still better than Eli's at the time of his benching. The Texans will be looking for a new QB next year. Meanwhile, Eli will probably get a contract extension! How can I be the only one who's sick and tired of the excuses that Eli gets? The Giants have averaged 9 wins and 7 losses over the past 4 years with only one playoff appearance. And Eli gets paid $20 million a year for that?
If Nick Foles were the Giants QB, do you think he would suck as bad as Eli? Vick could have had the same excuses as Eli for playing horribly, but as soon as Foles replaces him, all those weaknesses and problems on offense disappeared. Why won't the media and Giants fans even consider that Eli may be the problem? I pray Eli's contract is not extended but I know it will be. It's really sad that all the other players have to take the blame when I know it squarely lies on the shoulders of Eli, the clown QB of the NFL.
