Will the Giants ever trade him probally not. Should they look into yes if they think that it a few years to fix the problem.( it might be with cap issues)
I am not a Eli guy but he has done enough for this team that he stays but after all the talk of elite and super bowl rings I am done pointing the finger on Killbride. Eli should be smart enough or talented enough, getting paid top dollar, to call his own offensive plays at the line. So how does Eli gets a pass for the putrid offense is beyond me. He is a turnover machine and is a 3 and out king due to his love for the deep ball. He needs to step up and be a leader ala his brother and Brady as this team and his offense is in shambles. If he is the elite high paying QB it on him to turn it around. Tom Brady Drew Brees Peyton all have done this with terrible oline at one time. If someone asked you Luck or Eli it a no brainer. Eli this year has been slow at his read/progressions and his feet have been TERRIBLE( oline stinks i get it but not an excuse for elite players make due) His ball flight is a major issue in Giants Stadium with wind in December so in the next few years will be a major issue. Is this "idea" really that insane with cap issues. It is if the brass do not see a future with Ryan Nassib. To me this team needs a major overhaul in talent and youth. Eli is not the major problem but could very well be a major solution if TC retires at the end of the year. I wouldnt do it for just a 1st round pick it have to be a big splash deal. Do I think it will happen never but it a board to talk ideas.
Eli is agreat qb just never been my taste so to speak. I want a moxy guy who isn't afraid to cuss someone out. number 1 key Tough and smart with the ball. mobile enough in the pocket to move w it. doesnt have a stupid look on his face wait this might be number 1.
The Vikings are an interesting possibility but I can't imagine they would surrender a 1st.
Houston already has a QB very similar to Eli. Can't imagine they would surrender a 1st for Eli.
But ultimately, these teams are trying to build. The last thing they want to give up are high picks.
At first glace, it looks like you are saying that Eli can be successful if there are good players around him, which I agree with completely.
It's the second part that had me thrown off: this is just an observation about a trade, and not really anything more than that, right?
My assumption would be that surrounding Eli with a stout o-line would allow for him to be successful, and the fact that we can neither pass nor run with the current o-line backs that theory up. There are teams with no QB and a stout o-line (Cleveland would be an excellent example).
But here's the glitch in all this: trading Eli and not fixing the o-line leaves you in a worse position then the one we are in now. Fixing the 0=line would solve the problem on a short term basis (in terms of Eli), right?
"I was disappointed that Eli did not lead his team in that brawl. I'm not saying I would have completely lost respect for him as a leader if I were on the squad but that kind of suspect behavior would definitely have me eyeing him sideways"...elitikistrahan
