Calm down. Not only do we have a top 10 QB, but we have the only NFL QB who has won 2 SBs in the past five years. That combination should make him the #1 paid QB. However, we are talking CAP hit anyway, not salary. Two entirely different things.
the "realist" is a lazy piece of crap that works on his tan while sipping a margarita,
the pessimist changes the sails while complaining about the lazy piece of crap,
and the optimist changes the sails while hoping the lazy piece of crap will start to do his share of the work.
it is what it is. we won 2 SBs from his help (among others) in restructuring. Completely worth it.
According to the article he's already restructured his contract several times and its seems like a lot of work to do it again so with that being said, Eli's salary isn't changing, I don't think he needs 2 because he deserves the money anyway so back to the drawing board......
Why can't people understand that what Eli is making is what the going rate is for SB winning QBs? So what he doesn't put up the numbers like Brees, Brady and Rodgers because when the chips are down, he will win 90% of the time. Eli deserves every penny. If he chooses to take less money that would be great. But he doesn't have to.
I'd love to see him restructure to bring the cap level down a bit, but he was a huge part if not the largest reason why the Giants won the super bowl last year. In New York, winning two superbowls he is going to command a ton of money.
