    That has always been a curious point to me as well.

    And I understand the "he's shown he's capable" argument, but still...can't believe that it's a factor.

    The only circumstance I could see--and only theoretically at that, since there is zero chance the Giants ACTUAL GM/owners would consider trading him--even for 1 split second--this off season, would be for a minimum of two 1st rd picks plus a second rd this year and a third rd next year (or a solid young OL player with a few years remaining of his contract in addition to two 1st rd and a third rd pick this year. And only if that offer were from Houston this year or another high 1st rd pick team this year.

    That's the only trade that would make even a small modicum of sense, as this coming draft looks at least to be fairly decent for a couple QBs going early.
    Two 1sts, a 2nd, and possibly a 3rd for an inconsistent turnover machine on the wrong side of 30, and all because he played fairly well and had tremendous help from his defense in two Super Bowls?! The rest of his up and down career doesn't factor in? Give me some of what you're drinking, because I'd like to get hammered too.

    Carson Palmer went for a 1st and a 2nd, despite being an inconsistent turnover machine on the wrong side of 30 that had never won ****.

    Assuming an almost 33 year old Eli would even be available on the trade block, can he be looked at in any other scope that isn't seen as a premier 'stop-gap' player until that team drafts their long term answer at the QB position? Signing a QB like Eli out of FA is one thing if you have the cap room and/or roster that is ready to win now but trying to acquire a player like him without hurting your future roster too much is tricky business. You can't expect many opposing teams to invest so many draft picks into someone that has displayed a good deal of uncertainty these last two seasons. It's much safer to just pick up the hottest option (the most "talented") off the QB scrap heap from FA, pair that player with a freshly drafted QB, and let the two compete.

    We are not trading Eli under any circumstances. KG is gone after this year

    No offensive line help until the sixth round?!?!? C'mon bro!
    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    Well, it was the Raiders, and is was one 1st, not two 1sts, a second, and a third. As for what hes won, how does that matter?

    Just sign someone like OG Matt Slauson and/or C Fernando Velasco to 2-4 year deals, pair them up with draft picks, and you already have an improved interior. You don't need top round talent to have a working interior.

    Edit: Speaking of late round OL talent, guess who is doing well now that they are off the Giants?

    No one trades a starting QB....EVER.....

    Only reason San Fran traded Montana was because they had Steve Young. There is no Steve young on our roster or in the draft
