    Sit the kid and have him take over in 2016.
    If you draft him that high, I would play him right away.
    No way I take a QB at 12 with so many more needs on this team to just sit him, along with Nassib.

    Drafting a QB in the 1st would effectively seal the deal on Eli's future as a Giant. I'm not sure we can make that decision at this point.
    me either Bill ....the presure is on him to have good year.....as for the draft it will be some big guy

    I promise you...if Tom Brady threw 9 more int's that TD's.....they would be looking to draft another QB.

    And he's arguably top 3 all time.
    Why is Eli so untouchable?
    No way Bill would throw Brady to the curb over one bad season.

    I wouldn't draft Johnny football (although I LOVE the guy), Bridgewater or Carr. But I would draft Bortles. He's a good guy to sit because he's still a tad raw. A year or two sitting would do him good.

    May I remind you of the case of a Mr. Aaron Rodgers?
    "Typical Morehead!"..................and he didn't even mean that as a compliment..

    He's not untouchable, but there's no reason to overreact and assume a QB will be the face of the franchise for 10+ years without definitive proof.

    "Bad season"?.......Maybe not.

    "All time horrific"......like Eli last year?..........Absolutely.

    Yes, and not every QB is a Mr. Aaron Rodgers.

    I'm not suggesting he's the answer or not the answer.

    I'm saying we do not know yet. We need to see if he can progress with a good amount of minutes, and we need to see if Eli improves.
    It's not fair to start kicking Eli to the curb without seeing any evidence if last season was just an anomaly.

    Again no way in hell. The guys been to the SB 5 times. I think BB would be willing to roll the dice to see if it was just a fluke.

    Do you really think we should risk a first rounder on a QB just because of a horrific year from a solid and accomplished veteran QB on a horrific team?
