    New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning just accepted a 6-Year, $97 Million Dollar Contract, making him the highest paid NFL player ($15.3 Million per year).  Does he deserve it?

      I think he is a pretty average middle of the pack QB. He does not have receiving talent around him to be fair. But I think they overpaid.

        I'm one of the biggest Giants fans this side of our solar system.  Eli has come a long way and took a while to come along.  He's probably the most dynamic QBs in the NFL because in the past he's been inconsistent.  I think that he's just reached his potential and will get better.  His success IS literally in the hands of his receivers...Wow, what a pun.

        His entire O-line is intact and the running game should be fine...To start off the season, veteran leadership (David Tyree, Sinorice Moss, Steve Smith, Kevin Boss<--2 Year Veteran!) need to step it up.  He's got talent, just no stability yet.  My fingers are crossed, but I like our chances.

    BTW, the deal should be finalized and made official by the end of the day...Any thoughts?

    I'm thinking Ma and Pa Manning are not worrying about living on their social security.

      No, they're more concerned about a Colts-Giants Super Bowl yikes

    Does anybody deserve $15 million a year?

    I think I heard on the radio that it puts him in the top five paid quarterbacks.  That's pretty elite company for a guy that was taking a lot of heat a few years back. 

    Congrats to Eli.

      Now the city of Indianapolis will have to take out a mortgage on the Speedway to re-sign Payton whose contract is up next year.
