    ...I mean Eli. I hope their fans don't complain him anymore.

    I visited their site and this is the reasoning: if Clements gets 80 mil in the open marketing, just think how much Eli will get when he becomes a free agent. It is logical to lock him up for another 5 years.

    It is called "Halo effect". Well, if one Manning could do it, other Manning must be able to pull off a SB in the future too. :D

    i might be worried simply because the price to keep rivers over time will likely rocket upwards

    Giants fans still backup their organization for the deal that gave us Rivers, Merriman and Kaeding for Manning. LOL

    We're gonna hear all about how Eli will finally breakout in 07' and how he will be a lock for the probowl now that he's got a little more job security. LOL HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Eli without Tiki is a horrid thought if you're a Giants fan. Sucks for them. :lol:

    Yeah at least Clements was a probowler. Eli hasnt shown to be a good QB yet and they reward him for regressing.

    Great plan. I bet the fans are happy since they have been calling fopr his head this past season.

    First this:

    Then this:


    In other words, the Giants went out of their way to emphasize that Eli has NOT been signed any longer than we have to, although we could have dumped him by not paying that $5 mil.

    On a side note, what a crappy contract the Giants negotiated if his performance thus far has triggered all these clauses to get him more money.

    edit: both stories from pft

    ELI sucks. I didn't want him on SD then, and I wouldn't want him on my team now. He's not a LEADER, and you need that at QB. He has no emotion, and leadership skills like his brother, or other QB's in the league who are great (CARSON PALMER,RIVERS, BRADY, BREES.) He doesn't take control of the game like those QB's do. I remember talking about this all last season, you could easily see it in the GIANTS games. He also lacks a certain amount of confidence, which the other QB's I mentioned do not. They are winners, he is not. He is very overated, but definitely needs a better coach. Best thing for him is to be his brother's backup, and learn something. Or get a better head coach who understands the QB position, and can set him straight. Thank God we got RIVERS instead of ELI!!!:tup: :yes:

    Instead of getting an extension on contract, Eli gets a raise. Still, 8 mil on 08 and 8.5 mil on 09? He either structures the contract or better wins a SB for the team by that time.
