    I can't imagine them extending a contract that still has three years left before FA. Eli could play lights out for three years or not. Extending him now does not favor the team.

    I truely think we need to look at a capable backup QB in the draft. 1st, to give Eli some push and motivation to actually play well knowing he has a youngster breathing down his neck. 2nd, incase Eli gets hurt because David Carr is horrible and wouldn;t win us a game. and 3rd, to build for the future. If Eli is 3 years away from the end of his contract, could we head another way in 3years? Lets get someone under him to learn from him.
    Find a team desperate for a QB who's already won 2 Super Bowls? Shouldn't be too hard.

    Here's the highest paid this season:

    Vick at 9 for almost $14 mil and Rivers at 6 for a little over $15 mil, both with no Super Bowls.

    Well he's not taking a pay cut so we better hope he does play like a top 5 QB next year.

    People want to win Super Bowls and not pay while other teams have been paying more obscene money to other players while not winning one.

    It's the annual freak out about the CAP. Not to worry.

    This is all Reese's doing, Eli doesn't need to do a thing.

    If Eli's salary is inflated this season, then it was deflated during the 2011 SB season. You judge a contract's worth as a whole, not year to year.
