    I always think of it as, Eli didn't not want to play in San Diego, he just really wanted to play here. And why wouldn't he, with the best fans in the world?
    Yeah. I know Favre was badly addicted early in his career as well. I feel like that's something everyone is susceptible to, if they get into them.

    I can't say whether Eli forgot or not. I know there are plenty of "Giants fans" who have.

    Ha...Eli knows exactly why he didn't stay in SD.

    What he probably did forget is who's blocking his left side.

    It seems to me that saying he can't recall that significant event is like his saying he doesn't know where he was on 911.

    I've always felt like there was maybe something personal to that decision too and it's classy not to rehash those things.

    Well according to another journalist he said it tongue-in-cheek. If so, bad reporting by Michael David smith

    Yup. Can't blame him for not saying anything in response to a sucker question, if history is a judge, no one can blame him (or his dad) for not wanting to play in San Diego.
