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.
Either way they win. Makes me want to buy my boy a football right now!
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.

If you take away history and consider just this season, who would you take Eli or Brady?Personally I think Manning is playing at a higher level than Brady. Add to that his elite elusiveness in the pocket and that is where ELi is really setting him apart. Bottom line on Tom Brady is he is looking...

This guy told me to chill out on my criticism of Joe Flacco. What I criticize is his 77 quarterback rating. Someone says that Flacco is better than both Romo and Eli, I say no way he is better than neither. I think it's close between Romo and Manning I think Romo puts up better numbers but Manning...

Does the Florida Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton deserve a 13-year, $325 million contract?All of it is guaranteed and he has an opt-out after 6 seasons. The Marlins haven't spent any money the past few years and have been criticized by the MLB office for being too far under budget.

If Eli Manning wins the Super Bowl, does that put him ahead of his brother for the Hall of Fame?

Which will happen first? Peyton and the Denver Broncos lose or Eli and the N Y Giants win a game?Peyton Manning and the high octane offense of the Denver Broncos are off to a blistering pace, while brother Eli and the Giants have started pathetically, underachieving. Will Peyton suffer a loss first...

The Giants and Patriots will face each other in the Super Bowl for the second time in five years. The Giants were 9-7 during the regular season but seemed to figure things out just in time for the playoffs. The Patriots haven't lost a game since a last-minute comeback by Eli Manning and the Giants...
