  1. Were either of them highly rated though?
  2. Read back. I ate a whole bird weeks ago. I can't believe I thought he was something other than a choke artist.

    While that is probably true, and I thought so at the time I will point out the Giants also matched up very poorly with the 49ers that year. Especially on that day, weather was horrible for passing. The field was all mud, receivers couldn't cut. it was a mess. Somehow they still won.

    He was pretty much hot that entire year. Threw for nearly 5,000 yards and then in the playoffs played even better. Other guys on that team that had career years were JPP and Victor Cruz. Hakeem Nicks was really good that year too.

    The 49ers defense was dominate that year. They were unreal. That was by far Eli's best year and for anyone to say he's not hall of fame worthy, I just can't take them seriously because his performance that year, with another super bowl run puts him in. At least in my eyes. I don't even think that's bias either. Anyone else with his numbers that accomplished that I would see the same way.

    Well one thing is for sure, we agree on Vernon. Guy has been a bitter disappointment.

    I think we do need a long term solution at Center and RT at the very least. I don't think Engram is the long term answer at TE, I would rather see someone who can block and make tough catches over the middle at that position even if it means sacrificing some big play ability. We did well with guys like Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard (even if it was just for one year). I'd like to get back to that prototype. On the defense side we are a long ways away. We probably need to replace practically the entire line at this point don't we? I think the decision to cut Eli will be easier than you think. If we can get the guy we want, letting him go wouldn't be a bad idea. Save the money and build aroudn the young QB because young QB's need help. In todays NFL, with the current rules on hitting QB's, I wonder if a young QB is in the same kind of danger they used to be. Food for thought. But back to my point, if they don't find Eli's successor then you keep him another year.

    Your post is actually kind of hard to follow. "Saying something is wrong doesn't prove anything?" What are you talking about? That I pointed out that what you said in your previous post about OBJ and Barkley being the only two players on the team doing their job was 100% garbage? Okay? If you don't like being called on it don't spew total BS in your posts. Just like this narrative that Eli hasn't been throwing down the field. He has been, he has been fairly consistently taking shots down the field in every game since the Carolina game. He hit OBJ on a 35-40 yarder last week. Sometimes people like you get stuck on a narrative and you can't open your eyes and look at what's happening on the TV. Try paying better attention, you'll make more sense.

    False. Hernandez and Brown have been a huge lift to this team. The reason Barkley, OBJ, and even Eli have been putting up decent numbers lately is the OL has been playing better SPECIFICALLY because of the two of them. The defense has been putrid for the same reason, they gave away snacks and their getting murdered on the line of scrimmage. Football is won at the line of scrimmage. I will tell you this every time you come back me with this weak crap that has consistently been proven wrong. FYI we've won two super bowls with Eli. What was the difference? How about Tuck, Strahan, Snee, Diehl, gimmie a break.

    Eli's been throwing down the field for weeks what are you talking about? He's in a short pass offense. Don't you realize that? But since the Carolina game if anything Eli has been pushing downfield probably more than he should as evidence by the interception he threw at the end of the half last week.

    He's a good receiver, but receivers don't really win. Which is why the best teams in the NFL that go to the super bowls and win don't pay their receivers an outrageous amount of money. They pay OL, DL, and QB. That's the winning formula. It hasn't changed in forever. I think a lot of us could live with it easier if he'd keep his mouth shut with the media.

    100% disagree. OBJ is not a team player, he's selfish, has proven to be a locker room cancer, and to be honest what Mike said about him on the radio was pretty darn accurate. We haven't won a thing with him. 5 years and 10-15 games under .500? And he's worth 20 million a year? Gimmie a break.

    He may be back but if he is he'll have a new shiny first round QB standing behind him on the sideline waiting to take his job after the first bad game he has. That's just the reality of the situation.

    Your logic is garbage. First you blamed Coughlin, then Reese, then Eli. Once all three are gone, we will be even worse off then we were before. Reese was the only one of the 3 that really needed to go. The only reason I don't advocate for Eli anymore is that he's old, and the team sucks so why not get a replacement? But you're ignorant if you think getting a new QB is going to help us block better, rush the passer better because those two things are the Giants main issues.

    What about Shurmur? The guy seems even worse.
