Lets look at all of the SB winners since our first championship. Look at the QB's in the past 26 years that have won. Montana, Aikman, Young, Favre, Elway, Warner, Brady, P. Manning, Rothlisberger, Breese, E. Manning, and Rodgers. These guys account for 20 of the past 26 SB's. This is a quarterback driven league. If you are lucky enough to get one of these gems, you have to pay him. The truth is that while sometimes teams with average or mediocre QB's do win the SB, it is very rare, especially in this era of football where the rules favor the offense so much.
ALL professional athletes are overpaid. Singling out ELI (a 2 time SB MVP, a class act, and a guy who has ALREADY restructured his contract more than once to help his team) is asinine.
What's more, he will probably restructure AGAIN and won't get any credit for it from some of you.......and you know who you are.
I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.
To be clear, I am not saying Eli is overpaid. I am just saying that some push the argument just a little too far.
My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...
