Not doing anything for the fear of getting worse is only delaying the inevitable, Eli is not going to be around forever. I really don't think he has elite stuff to get it done either, by the time the team is rebuilt, Eli will be too old and ineffective.
Eli is a made man in NYC. Get him a quality offensive line and run game he will pick apart any defense
"Team sports are a different animal. They tap into deep seeded tribal instincts. Our team vs your team used to be our tribe vs your tribe. Winner takes all – land, plunder, women. You inherently care when you are aligned with a tribe/team. The players are interchangeable but team always stays the same." - JOESONDO from UG forum
Trade Eli for what?
Why do people want to trade our best players for unknown talent? We're not trading Eli and it's ridiculous to do so.
As I said the Giants have been threw this before. After Tittle retired, and during all of Simms career. People always suggest stupid ideas like this.
I am all for making wholesale changes but getting rid of Eli is absurd. Get rid of Eli and watch Reese parade out Dave Brown 3.0 with 31 defensive lineman on the roster and 5 olinesman with T Rex arms. That is a recipe for quality....
point is, Eli isn't hungry. he got himself 2 rings. anyway, I'm going to get my pain meds.. whew! I can get all philosophical when I'm on pain meds LOL
Who are we bringing in Freeman? Sanchez? TEBOW? I'll tell you right now the Bucs and Jets would both trade for Eli in a heartbeat like these Madden General Managers want.
The Oline is going to be what it is during the rest of the year. The only way to fix it is threw drafting, free agency, and coaching decisions. The first option isn't going to happen till next year, FA isn't going to happen as the window closes and their are no options. The coaching staff is going to do what it can with what it has. There are NO other options today. This "trade Eli" idea is just as stupid as the "trade Simms" idea were 25 years ago. You don't trade your two time Superbowl MVP QB away, especially when there are no good options out there. I know most people aren't old enough to remember the Giants in the late 60s, but there should be a fair amount that still remember the ridiculousness of what happened with Phil here.
