Right now they're negotiating to buy Mississippi to help out with the national debt.

You can also point to about another 12 QB's that could not beat the Pats that year but he found a way to win. Is he worth that contract? Only time will tell.


Of those 12 how many of those QB's defenses held the pats to 14 pts? Eli got the payday but we all know the defense won the SB. Pats score their usual 30+ and they are in 'Perfectville' with the 72 Phins.

Eli gets a lot of credit for the SB (hence this big ass contract) but you're right, it was the Giants D that made it possible and NYG getting a few breaks (Darth Hoody not going for a field goal late in the game or Eli barely avoiding getting sacked in the Tyree miracle catch).

You're forgetting that Peyton is probably one of the highest paid players in the league on endorsements alone. In 2006 alone Peyton racked in $11.5 million in endorsements.

Good for Eli. He should send some of the money to Burress because his production is going to go down significantly without him.

Re: Eli Manning's 6-Year, $97.5 Million Extension One of NFL's Biggest Deals

Manning is the most over-rated player in football since Alstott, and by a far margin. This baloney about "clutch" is silly. If he was worth the money, or even close, they wouldn't need him so much in the "clutch". There's a reason why Peyton and Brady aren't on the list. It's all a matter of opinion but no way would I want him for my QB. I honestly think he is best the 3rd best QB in his own division.

He is inaccurate, lacks leadership qualities that elite QBs have, and has suspect decision making at times. His career completion percentage is not only not good but in reality pretty bad(55%) and his TD/Ints(98/74) is pretty awful too.

Eli is the most overrated QB in the NFL. Im happy as hell about this signing. He is not even a top 10 QB in the league. I wonder if the Giants could turn back the clock if they would take him over Rivers? I wouldnt.

Or rather, he is adequate enough to lead a team with solid offensive pieces and a heck of a defense deep into the playoffs where anything can happen.

Off the top of my head:

Manning
Brady
Roethlisberger
Rivers
Warner
McNabb
Palmer
Brees
JC


And those are just the ones I'd DEFINITELY take. I'd probably take Ryan, Hasselbeck, Cutler and maybe another few others too.
Jason Campbell? HAHAHAHAHA. I'll give you the other guys are better than Eli and I do not think he is worth that kind of money either. But, Jason Campbell? Please, he is one of the worst starting QB's in the league.

Coggs is trippin.. I would take JC over Manning too. Manning is an average QB man. Id take everyone on that list..plus.. Ryan, Romo, Cutler, Bulger, and Rodgers over Manning. Hell I would rather have Sanchez and he has never even played a game yet.

He is better than Manning. Manning is awful. He just plays on a good team. Put JC on Giants and he would be putting up Fantasy Football numbers. Put Manning on the skins they probably would have been 4-12 the last four years.

Re: Eli Manning's 6-Year, $97.5 Million Extension One of NFL's Biggest Deals

It is definitely too much for Eli, and I do not like this contract. In a nutshell, Eli is not nearly as good as A LOT of Giants want to believe, but he is not nearly as bad as most non-giant fans seem to think. The Defense was the main reason they won, most of all because of the pass rush. Not sure any other team in the NFC could have beaten the Pats as they wouldn't have been able to get the kind of pressure on Brady like the Giants. Maybe Dallas, but that is about it. As far as offense, that game was a classic team effort. Jacobs and the OLine converted the 4th and 1 on the last drive. Steve Smith caught a pass on 3rd and 11 and got to the sticks and out of bounds. Tyree with his head catch (and the first TD), Burress the game winning TD with one knee. However, there wasn't one single player who jumped out as having a performance that was head and shoulders above anyone else. I thought the MVP should have been given to the entire D-Line, but you know they would never do such a thing, or the corners who shut down Randy Moss for most of the night. Wes Welker had a big game, but he is not going to hurt a team like Moss as was proven. Fans who really know the game of football could make an argument for about 6 or 7 different Giants for MVP. Tuck (2 sacks), Strahan (1 sack and on Brady all night), Steve Smith (5 catches, including the big 3rd and 11 conversion), Tyree (the head catch, 1st TD), Eli, Plaxico Burress (only 2 receptions, but the game winning TD and anyone with real football knowledge knows how he caused DC's to change their game plan), Toomer had 6 or 7 catches and just under 100 yards receiving. Like I said, no one really has anything that just jumps out at you and make you say, "WOW, that is the MVP." Could even make a case for Wes Welker and his 45 catches for 100+ yards.

I'd rather see he can win without Burress and handle the Meadowlands winds in November and December before giving that kind of cash. Hixon definitely has the speed to be the deep threat this season, but after his awful drop in the regular season loss to the Eagles last year, he didn't really get another shot. Seemed like the Giants were afraid to try and stretch the field. Without Burress and Toomer, you have to think the young guys (Smith, Hixon, Manningham, Moss, Nicks, Barden) are going to come in wanting the #1 or #2 receiver role which hopefully drives these guys to bust their asses. My guess is the season starts with Hixon as the #1, Steve Smith as the #2, Nicks as the #3 and Barden as your goal line jump ball guy. Barden is the guy out of Cal-Poly they took in the 3rd round who is about 13 feet tall.

This is why I love Redskins fans. Every year they come out so optimistic, and every year they crash harder and harder. The Skins will be lucky to win 5 games. The Giants D Line is going to have Campbell on his back more than a 2 dollar hooker.

I really wish you were the GM of an NFC east team other than the Giants. I'm not saying Manning is a top-10 QB in the league, but I do know Campbell is a bottom-5 (amongst starters).
