Honestly, Eli was never the QB that the media made him out to be. Not bad, but not at the level of Peyton, Brees, Brady, et. al.

Today? I think he is done but I also think that the Giants should have found a classier way to move on from him. While I think he was overrated, I also believe he gave everything he had to that organization and deserved better.

They were as classy as they could get. He was drafted in 2004. It’s 2019. At best, they should’ve announced this when they drafted Jones.

Well, he did win 2 Super Bowls, including the one that ended the Pats' perfect season, so he has that going for him. Interestingly enough, he was the MVP both times. So, he stepped up his game when the lights were brightest.

:hihi:

And nah, pass. I agree it's time for him to hang it up.

He’s a good New Orleans boy. I’ve always pulled for him. He lives in his brother’s shadow, but what QB doesn’t? Go Eli. No really, Eli, go. Be happy.

I think it's a perfect match, I like the family from new orleans thing. I think he could pick up the offense quickly and yes, I do believe he is better than bridgewater. He would help us win this year.
The problems I have with it is what we would have to give away. How many picks? Who would be cut? And what return on investment would we get with him. He's in his late thirties, so not many more years. In my opinion he's still top ten quarterback with the right offense
