    John Unitas was benched in Baltimore. Either Joe Montana or Steve Young was sitting on the bench in San Francisco. Roger Staubach in Dallas.

    As bad as Eli has been this year he won’t be as horrible as GenO will be.
    He’s garbage, I couldn’t even believe he was still on an NFL roster.

      Well at least Geno’s off the field distractions are vaguely amusing to watch. And he is probably slightly better than Eli right now. The bar isn’t exactly high here.

      Dear God, no! I’d rather trade our customary seven or eight first round picks for Nate Sudfeld. If we’re going to panic and be idiots, let’s do it the Redskins way.

    He’s such a weird commodity. As a Giants fan I always had an issue with the nonsense that took place in the draft with him and Rivers. Mediocre regular season after mediocre regular season. It’s like the guy needed adversity to be able to win. Better post seasons than his brother who is arguably one of the best ever, though he had to be virtually handed 2 superbowls. Beat Farve, beat Rogers, and beat probably the best team in football history in the Patriots on their undefeated run. Yeah, he had company, but the guy was clutch. And he was clutch against some of the best teams in modern history with mediocre skills and offensive help. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if you don’t win. and he did when it counted. Others far better than him didn’t.

      I view it as payoff for the Giants. You got those two runs and in return you have to slowly watch Uncle Eli grow senile while playing. He’s the biggest white elephant in football by a wide margin, and personally I don’t think he has played at an acceptable level in at least three full seasons.
      But now Mara has scapegoated Mac for breaking the streak, so maybe the post-2011 torment can finally end. If it doesn’t, no team in the NFL fears playing the Giants with Manning anymore. Last year looked better than it was because of a soft schedule and a great defense. But it got so little help from Manning and the offense in Green Bay that the dam finally broke in the third quarter of that game. This year with a harder schedule and a decent defense the entire thing got exposed, and not just Macadoo. Eli too.

    Thanks for the insight Czabe, everybody here in NY has become a slobby sentimentalist – keep up the good work.
