    Yeah, he didn't look fired up all year, but people need to also get it out of their heads that he is a vocal leader.

    Two different scenarios. We need Eli, we don't NEED Tuck. In addition, Eli doesn't vow every year to play better knowing he maybe injured, but continues to play and be ineffective. Mind you after a bad play, you see Eli on the sidelines with Gilbride looking at the playbook. Not shaking his head with his hands on his hips. I already know what you're gonna say "Eli needs to play better". Of course he does.

    Eli: "You actually caught a pass!"

    Right so because they need Eli more than Tuck what was said about him playing bad and making so much more does not sound so funny. Oh, and after every throw Eli makes that face, points to something, and bows his head. Not defending Tuck on his sideline attitude.

If he doesn't man-up, at least we'll be helping the cap situation. If he only plays at a mediocre level, pay him at a mediocre level.
    Should the Giants pay him more for the years when he outplayed his deal?

    I don't buy that he was an integral leader in leading the Giants to two SB's in the last 5 years, but suddenly this year he didn't lead. We really don't know how he leads in the locker room and it seems to me that we are probably judging his leadership based solely upon the outcome of the season (i.e., we did not have a great season so that must mean that Tuck was not a great leader).

    eli didnt have a bad year by any means. he just didnt have a great one...tuck was absolutely putrid sans the last game of the season.
