Eli

Recommended Posts

What do you mean? As of now he still is but he wont be back as a back-up next year - thats for sure. I think he will just retire.

His contract is done yo.

He isn't a Giants anymore. 

He's a free agent the moment the clock hit zero in the Eagles game.

Halfway through his third season I'm not sure there was anybody more down on the guy. Now he's my all time favorite Giant. 

Really gonna miss seeing that guy in Blue.

I was right there with you.

How could this guy who's over throwing curl routes be anything more than a back up?

Then something happened Eli just got his shit together.

Throws that should of never been throw were caught.

4th quarter comebacks that had no chance were the norm.

Hits that would of normally knocked other QBs out were shrugged off.

Suddenly the over thrown passes were being replaced by accurate passes.

Suddenly we had a leader and a QB.

I don't know what I'll feel next year but I know this team is never going to be the same now that Eli is no longer on the sidelines.

Supposedly still under used about what to do.

It's good to hear that Mara hasn't closed any doors about having Eli come back as a player or in another role on the team.

Wonder how well he would be as a scout or QB coach. 

He's always had an ability to read a defense on the fly.

They should have made Eli head coach.

I don't think the fan base could take his gosh, golly and gee whiz personality during his press conferences. But I absolutely bet he could get shit done.

I don't really see Eli involved in football to a great extent after he retires.  Maybe a high school coach.

Mara wants to find a way to keep the man in the building. Can you blame him? Eli has been a model employee. People like him you find a way to keep them.

Eli would make a terrific coach I feel - he is a student of the game. Hell, make him the OC!!! Ive seen very few QBs who can just go around reading defenses on the fly
