    true it does redeem the cost

    one could argue did we need a $15mill qb to score under 20 points each superbowl. i think a game manager and good running game would do it.

    the least of our problems is that we have a 2 time SB MVP QB who we're paying $20 mill a season.

    regardless of how he played this year, there's no way in hell we win that SB without him. so for people suggesting that Eli somehow isn't worth what he's getting paid is completely insane. there's a whole bunch of $15-20 mill QBs in the NFL, and we're lucky to have one of them.

    I doubt the Giants will even be close enough to sniff the Super Bowl if you have a game manager in the first place. Eli had ridiculous post-season numbers on his two runs to the Super Bowl. He earned it. Or you can have Mark Sanchez's contract instead:

    It's confusing how it's paid out, but you're right.

    It's not just Eli; the labor agreement prevents a players contract from just being erased.

    If you renegotiate within the term of the original agreement, this is what happens.
    If you extend, then the old money must go with the new contract with new money added.
    If you cut him, them guaranteed money still counts.

    Ben resigned for 8 years 102mil in 2008 loaded with "dont be stupid and ride without a helmet" type clauses laced throughout.

    Not bad for a quarterback who can end the team's season all by himself.

    About drafting a QB? Absolutely. Why not have a capable QB behind Eli? He is 32 and only getting older. He took a ton of shots this year. He wont last forever. If he goes down, we dont want a "Colts" type situation where we have nothing and no chance. Although it worked out for them the following year.
    ZERO quality wins the last 2 seasons. Major changes are needed.

    Never said we should cut him. I was just wondering if another team would out pay us ($20.85M) for him. Just an open question. Obvisouly he is our QB for at least 3 more years.

    Where will be find a quality QB who is willing to sit behind Eli for 3 - 5 years?
