    So what do you think he would play for if things go well the next few years? Cause if he plays at the level he played last year, I dont think he will get another deal.

    Only Eli can answer that but I assume you once 2019 comes both sides will collectively get together and talk about their options and go from there. He will never make it to Free Agency.

    I also say this with the hypothetical that we win another Super Bowl or two.


    This is all health permitted and assuming the core of the team stays strong. Which is something Jerry Reese may need to keep in the back of his head. Yes we have a closing window but we don't really know just how fast or how small/big that window actually is.
    Let me see if I have this straight.

    If we win another Super Bowl (or two), and if Eli can stay healthy, while the "core" of the team stays strong; you are going out on a limb to predict Eli will resign with the Giants at age 39? Is that correct? Are you sure there aren't any other conditions you want to add?

    I'll never understand why some of you just can't appreciate the guy for who he is and what he's accomplished.

    The idea that you must envision his career as a storybook speaks volumes. And if those storybook expectations are not met will he have failed?

    I doubt any of you hold yourself to such ridiculously high standards, and why you do it to this guy is something you probably need to come to grips with.

    I like chapter 42 and 46, I've read it a bunch of times.

    I agree with that. I believe he will retire if they let him know they are moving forward. I think the 1st round pick in 2018 will be his successor ready to take over for Eli in 2019.

    I dont think he'll get a contract, well, if his play continues to deteriorate.

    However, if he improves his play im all for keeping him.

    I think if Watson is there at 23 we take him. I think he actually compares to Eli quite a bit.

    If he's not there I hope we dont take any other prospect with the exception of Webb, and him perhaps in the middle rounds.

    I agree in regards to this year. Next year however, that QB class looks strong. D'arnold, Lamar Jackson, Rosen and my personal favorite Mason Rudolph. I think we take one in round 1 in 2018.

    It won't be about the money. It will be about if he can still play at the same level at age 40.

    I think its also about which players we may possibly lose if we give our 39 year old QB another deal at big $.
