Thread: Invest in OL to ensure Eli has a 20 yr career?

  1. #1

    Invest in OL to ensure Eli has a 20 yr career?

    LOL, I know that sounds crazy. But hear me out.

    Most QBs do not have the luxury of going, what, 9 seasons going on 10, without missing a game. It just dont happen.

    The few times it has, its produced a guy like Favre.

    Theoretically, Eli would own every passing stat including ints, if he were to play another 10 years out of sheer numbers/volume...kinda like Favre.

    Now, I know every franchise wants a franchise QB, but they also want that franchise HoF all time great QB too. It raises the value of the franchise and makes it more storied. Ex. Babe Ruth and the Yanks, Michael Jordan and the Bulls, Favre and the Packers (even tho that Jets/Vikings spiel)...do you think that at some point, the FO has wondered about this topic?

    If we could invest in an OL that ENSURES Eli gets touched minimally, he should be able to play for as long as possible...I don't see a reason he couldn't rival Favres streak in terms of physical ability. I know its crazy to think anyone hits favres mark and im not saying i think eli does im just saying i think his body could hold up were it needed to...

    So, wouldnt it make sense then to invest in OL before anything else. Like, I'd make sure I'd give him a legit impenetrable wall...


    crazy homer topic i know, its offseason...sue me.

    They need to invest in OL so he can make through just this year, going in with the same line as last season scares the **** out of me.

    I would say 12 to 13 years of a Giant QB throwing like a girl is good enough for me. (j/k)

    eli is pretty nonchalant towards mostly anything negative. whether it be media, pressure, or pain. he just scoffs at all of it and goes about his business.

    Still dont understand what OLine all these posters saw last year, but the pass protection was not the problem at all. This line isnt even close to as bad as posters here seem to think. Ill take 20 sacks every year, and Im sure Eli would agree.

    The real prob is next offseason, when Diehl Boothe and Snee are gone, then we will have a serious problem (if not prepared for).
