    I'm fine with the signing but I don't know about best backup in the league. Matt Moore comes to mind, for one. AJ McCarron? Drew Stanton? Just because Geno has had starting NFL QB experience doesn't automatically make him the best backup in the league. The guy was a total bust as a starter and was benched. He was worse than Mark Sanchez and definitely worse than Ryan Fitzpatrick. How is he the best backup?

    Why is he a better choice than Nassib? Smith has started a lot more games

    Disagree. Our team is built around the defense now. Eli was horrible last year, and they still got in the playoffs.

    It's not all about Eli anymore. Sorry but that is just not the case. They won games in spite of him last year... not because of him.

    Id rather Nassib, but whatever. Nassib is still unsigned, like Cruz and Hankins.

    Smith is not my personal choice, but I actually don't know who is left out there in FA. But like others said, Eli has been an iron man at his position. Hopefully the only time we see Smith at QB, if he makes the final 53, will be in preseason or mop up duty during a game out of reach.

    Who knows, maybe going to another team and system,with some stability, may be what Smith needs? And no I'm not saying he is going to become a Pro Bowler.

    The idea in a perfect world is he will never play

    Eli wasn't exactly a difference maker last year, and the offense did little to actually win games. The defense was the reason they won so many games and made the playoffs. The offense ranked 26th in scoring last year, averaging just 19.4 points a game. I don't think starting Nassib could possibly have resulted in much worse results. Before everyone jumps all over me, that isn't a slight on Eli, what I am saying is that it doesn't matter who the QB is, the results would still be pretty bad until they fix the underlying issues on the line.

    I have heard many on here say that Brady wouldn't be any better behind this O-line. I don't know that I agree with that, but let's go with that for arguments sake. If that is the case, then it doesn't matter who is at QB, the offense is still bad. So why bother paying the salary for a good one, especially for a backup? So, I agree, it doesn't matter who the back up is, but I don't agree the team is finished if Eli goes down.
    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...

    you clearly don't understand the responsibility that Eli holds within this offense

    but that's ok ... not many do

    Because you reload, you have a qb that can win it. Fix the rest of the pieces instead of introducing another unknown into the equation.
