    The agility ship has sailed, he is who he is.

    They still do not have anyone that profiles as a #1 WR. Eli has had the most success when he has had a true #1 WR(Plax,Nicks). I predict he will struggle again, maybe not as bad, if we don't get a legitimate deep threat #1 WR.

    It was supposedly all up to Eli last season too. How'd that work out? It's a good sign to me that Mara/Reese didn't just give Eli an extended contract, and it looks like they are going to make him earn his next one. I think Eli knows he isn't only playing for a new contract but a job this year. Another stinker and the Giants will draft a 1st round QB in the 2015 NFL draft to replace him.

    Gilbrides system relied heavily on that #1 receiver.

    Gilbride is no longer with the team

    I hope Eli can handle all the pressure that is going to be on him this season, he has to greatly improve his own personal performance and make the team successful, hopefully both will happen together....

    Eli's got a lot riding on how he plays this season, including his long-term future with the Giants. He'll be feeling the heat, but I think he'll have a bounce back year. Plus, being taken out of his Gilbride comfort zone will probably be a good thing for him.
    One of these teams is not like the others

    I didn't know TC was riding Eli. Aren't they married with children ?
