Let's be honest here. The reason why Eli is given so much lee way by the Giants organisation and for many fans is because he helped us win 2 SBs. None of this is being overlooked. His play outside of 2011 has been questionable. Great some times. Terrible others. It's not like he was lighting it up. Players like that generally don't have a lot of longevity. He's had 2 straight subpar seasons. At juncture where other great QBs careers took off, Eli came crashing down - disappointing us all.
I'm not sure how many years maybefan wants to give a free pass to Eli, but if he doesn't shape up next year, that'll be 3 straight years of subpar play. That's too long - especially for a QB that makes as much as he does.
I told Die Hard that I thought the reason they haven't put pressure on Eli is because they have won 2 rings with him at QB...pretty simple.
This other guy tried to say that QB's were paid for SB's they were gonna win, and I called BS on that.
I agree that if Eli continues to struggle he will be gone. Eventually we will all know the answers...whether it's him or lack of support. Right now, I don't think it's him. What an idiot I am..
My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...
