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.
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...
