    If a GM offered you a 1st round pick for Eli this offseason

    ...would you take it if you were Giants GM?

    Just interested in seeing the reactions...

    Not if re-signing Eli at 13-15 mil per was an option.

    Oh man this is tough one...

    I would if he came at a lower price... Then I would get a more mobile QB b/c I think he could buy a bit more time for the KG passing tree to open up with his legs... Or getting a very high rated OL and start looking at the guys we already drafted maybe?

    Otherwise NO.
    I want to see Eli in a new system before I throw in the towel in him. He is smart and will adjust.

    That's what I think he's worth, but I just checked the salaries and it's not realistic to expect him to resign for that much. Big Ben is making $12.5 million/year from a contract he signed in 2008. He'll want more money than $15 million/year but he needs to play markedly better if he's going to be worth it.
    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    Anyone who says yes is joking or crazy

    First it wouldnt be possible with his contract

    Second why does eli get so much flack? Eli is a lot like favre. Takes a lot of chances most QBs wouldnt have the nerve to take. Sometimes it burns him and sometimes its an amazing play. Every player has ups and downs, and the only way to be great is to take the chances other players wont.

    Favre was idolized til the very end of his career......still is by many. So why does eli get slammed so hard when his play stumbles? Is it just because of his last name?

    Hes got two great postseasons with two SB MVPs to go with it. Bad players do not shine at those times. They crumble and the greats excel

    We are talking about a guy who has a very strong case for canton

    If he was 2-3 years older and really stinking it up id condider for a top 15 pick

    Eli isnt a god so why do always expect miracles from him? Hes human and few would do much better with the issues the giants have right now

    Give eli a decent line, reliable running back and a solid D and we will see him excelling again

    Who would you rather have behind center taking that kind of punishment? Peytons neck would get snapped. Brees would be batted around like a ragdoll. Brady would do nothing but throw hissy fits

    Thx for defending Eli. He won 2 superbowls for us, one only 2 years ago. He did a great job thru the playoffs, winning A LOT of games on the road in hostile environments. Give him a break.

    People still don't get it. Favre's at least been able to show he could sustain great play for many years straight. Eli's ups and downs vary from game to game. Sometimes, it's half to half. Eli hasn't been able to show consistency at all. People's perceptions are driven by consistency. If you're great one game then terrible another, then people have no idea what to make of you. And that's what Eli suffers from.

    Go back and look at the first round selections for the past five years. You have about a 50/50 chance of getting an impact player.

    So give up a franchise QB who has taken us to 2 SB's for what? A 50/50 shot of getting a good player?

    It would be different if we were getting the number 1 or 2 pick in a Luck/RGIII type QB draft . . . .
