I'm sorry but the problem is Eli

moaltch : 9/13/2017 2:19 pm
The problem is the qb. In the two recent Superbowl seasons, the qb played at a hall of fame caliber, especially during the post season. We cant take that away from him. We can NEVER take that away from him. However, he is now a shell of that guy. He's jittery in the pocket, he cant move, he cant even step away from pressure, he rushes his reads. Even when he has adequate time, he still doesn't go through his progressions, and takes dump offs prematurely. Unfortunately when you have a below avg line and a below avg running game, the qb must pick up the slack Our qb does not. In fact, he's now become part of the problem.It started last year in the Minnesota game. Check the tape of Eli. Until the Giants improve the line and/or the running game, Eli will be a BELOW AVERAGE qb in this offense. We need someone with mobility or else we will not be able to make another Superbowl run, in spite of the current stellar defense.

Sorry in advance to all the Eli apologists

Because Eli is going to go down as one of the all time greats. Tom Coughlin's Giants will be remembered fondly and you are not going to like it one bit. If we win another ring with Eli you will be forced to eat crow, but already he has written a great story because history will regard Belichick & Brady's Patriots as the GOAT wining five Super Bowls out of seven.

Glover : 9/13/2017 11:45 pm : link
except for the title of the thread. His jittery feet and quick dump offs are the result of crap O line. Yea, he should be able to stand in the face of pressure and deliver, but that is never what he has been. He has been the guy who throws a lot of interceptions, along with a lot of TDs. He'd rather get rid of it than take the hit. He will be better with better protection. He aint what he used to be, but with some better protection he can regain that ice water through his veins commander on the field that he was in the Giants last 2 SB wins.
if you're exonerating Eli of what's going on and none to blame  
micky : 9/14/2017 12:15 am : link
then you're clueless...there was plenty of times in Sunday's game where he did have time only to either miss his receivers by wide margin or just throwing or dumping the ball off short or into the ground for no reason.

the ol is and was horrendous but if you're a $20 mil qb you have TO perform which he hasn't lately on a consistent basis.period.

San Francisco championship game and quit acting like that game was a microcosm of his career. No. Eli has never been the quarterback who stands in the pocket while getting hit and still makes accurate throws. That was an isolated incident. That's what makes it special. The "real Eli" has been making mistakes when pressured his entire life.

That is why he has been honored recently for being like third all time with 200 consecutive starts. Do you want a guy who mixes guts with stupidity and gets himself knocked out for long stretches? I'd rather have what we have had and more of it thank you.

Something new to chew on...  
cznmike : 9/14/2017 6:41 am : link
According to PFF the O line wasn't rated as bad as they appeared. No run game always makes a bad night for Eli. Look at both Super Bowl runs. When the Giants ran the ball, and decently- not great, they win. Less than 20 attempts in a game has almost always doomed them.

So, if PFF is anywhere near correct in the way they score individual performances, the running backs never got started. Should they have continued to run the ball? Should they have given the ball to Darkwa at least 10 carries?

If PFF rankings are correct, it takes it down to play calling. Jam the run, forcing the Giants to pass. Jam the middle of the field on pass plays, and there's nowhere to throw the ball in less than 3 seconds. Unless I went into a coma, which was likely, the only pass to stretch the field was a useless overthrow to Marshall that wasn't close to anyone playing football.

It was good to see some new formations, but when a team is averaging 5.8 yards a completion, which there wasn't enough of those either, and almost every one of them inside the hashmarks, it'll make a long night for any NFL team.

My only suggestion is to hope for everyone to get their game together, especially the run game. McGoo needs to admit to himself he's not an offensive genius and pass the baton. Give the ball to the hungry guy- 3 carries and he averaged 4.7 yards a carry. 3 x 4.7 = 14.1 yards. We could have had some 1st downs and taken pressure off of Eli.

Sorry, we'll have to agree to disagree. I think the criticism comes with the territory and is related to the money in two ways: 1) that level of money is only afforded because of the sport's popularity, and 2) Eli hasn't played like a $20MM QB since at least 2015.

Now, you can say that the fans don't pay the salary, and even leaving aside the correlation of fan popularity making that salary possible (and by extension, funding it), but the reality is if you feel, as I do, that Eli hasn't been playing well enough to justify his salary over the past year and appears to be in decline, it's a worthwhile question to ask whether he - and his salary - are hamstringing the team from improving in any other areas.

And the point I made earlier (or maybe on one of the other myriad Eli threads) about Eli being on track to finish this contract having earned more money than any other player in NFL history is this: has he, at any point in his career, been the best player in the NFL? Has he ever been the best QB in the NFL? Yet he will have earned more money than any of his contemporaries. How much better could any of our teams been over the years had Eli not squeezed every penny from the Giants? Is it a coincidence that the Patriots have had an extended dynasty while Brady has taken less money?

If Eli needs OL help, then let him give back some money to fund those acquisitions. Otherwise, are we supposed to mortgage the future of the team and retaining the young talent on the roster to make risky moves by trading picks and taking on contracts of aging OL veterans?

Like I said, we'll have to agree to disagree, but I don't think a ton of sympathy (or grace, as you put it) is necessary for a player that will have made over $200MM over the course of his career in a zero sum salary cap environment where every dollar that he earned by definition did not go to any other roster reinforcements. He has to be able to overcome some shortcomings by virtue of his salary IMO, and if he can't, that's worthy of some criticism.

Look at 2011, running game was dead last in the league, and Eli had his best season. Yes, a good running game will help ANY QB, Eli is no exception, but he has been very good with poor OL play before.

If you watch the all 22 tape, the OL is getting beat somewhere on every play. I don't know PFF's criteria, but I have to wonder what they were looking at. The line play was horrid.

If everyone blames the OL why do so many on here, who don't know the assignments or internals of the game, rush to blame Eli? I think the Papacast is great where Diehl is ripping the line. I side with those guys who have played. If Eli is getting skiddish as the game goes on, well he likely should with the lousy line. Again, Brady was skiddish last week too after his line failed.

Without pass protection no QB can function.

Interesting point on Eli giving money back, he could easily have offered to restructure ala Brady in order to bring in some OL help. Even though his wife isn't making as much as Brady's (who's does?) he could have looked at it as an investment in his health and welfare. Plus he would still get the money down the road...

PaulBlakeTSU : 9/14/2017 2:06 pm : link
then let's play a little game.

Last year, the NFL MVP was Matt Ryan. According to the writers, he was the "best" QB last year, or best performing QB.

If Eli is the problem, then surely Matt Ryan on this Giants team would make the offense hum. Afterall, he's the MVP.

So with this offensive line that cannot open up running lanes or push the defensive line back, and with this offensive line that gives up sacks and cannot maintain a pocket against 4! down linemen, how would Matt Ryan make this offense a success? Whene Matt Ryan is under duress immediately not knowing who the worst OL is going to be on any particular play, and he has to quickly get rid of the ball and throw against 6 and 7 defenders in coverage because the defense does not have to worry about a run or long-developing plays, where is he going with the ball?

What would Matt Ryan do in this situation that would be different from Eli?

The OL is not without blame, so they definitely deserve to be called out. The OL is the easy scapegoat, and a lot of these analysts don't do any actual work, they just parrot each other. But if you haven't read any analysts positing that Eli bears some responsibility, I'm sorry but you're living in an echo chamber.

Would you mind if I posited a different view? Maybe the team isn't constructed to have a "franchise" QB in terms of dollars. With the amount of money already committed to the defense, the amount that will have to be reserved for upcoming contracts for young talent like Beckham and Collins and the need to boost the offensive line, something has to give. We saw this team win 11 games last year with a middling offense. Maybe it's just time to reconsider the importance of the QB to the construction of the roster. I believe that's why the Giants drafted Webb this past year, and I believe that if this season goes down the tubes, they'll double down with another franchise QB prospect.

There are a lot of dollars between free and $20MM. Maybe Eli should care as much about his legacy as his fans do and take a little less to afford some OL help. Could Eli play for $14MM like Brady and give the Giants a chance to sign a Whitworth? Of course he could.

But he won't. Mannings don't play for a penny less than full price.

He can't. The CBA won't allow for players to take less money on an existing contract. They can restructure, which Eli has already done, and he can only do it once within an existing agreement. Your hatred of the Mannings is a little odd coming from a supposed Giant fan.

He has not restructured during this contract. He has only restructured once in his career - in 2012.

I don't hate the Mannings; I'm just pointing out a well-known truth, which is that they don't take a penny less than full price.

For some of you Eli is the easy scapegoat. Just because you can view the game from your couch you can apparently ignore the pass rush. I'm sure the view is different from behind center.


He has gotten sacked less by almost half since the arrival of McAdoo compared to under TC/KG. Try again.
Where are you getting your sack numbers because that is simply not the case.
Eli can't be successful with this line

and that's the problem. He doesn't--he SHOULDN'T--trust this set of guys in front of him.

You guys want Eli to be someone he's not. And it seems that the team does as well, because for 5 years they haven't upgraded the OL.

He's looking at one year of the TC/KG era, 2013, when Eli was sacked 39 times, by FAR the most in his career. Since McAdoo has taken over (even as OC), Eli sack numbers have been in line with his career numbers. Don't expect fair accounting from GD.

One year? Try 9 years. Sorry if a spreadsheet is confusing.

Here's the data:

I have a problem with people saying that we

need to rebuild the offensive line for Eli to feel more comfortable in the pocket, thats BS, Eli needs to play with the line he has and Bmac needs to put in offensive plays that will help out an immobile QB like Eli. I'm thinking Bmac is as big a part of the problem as any other part of the team because he sits there and lets defenses dictate to him what plays he can run, thats BS, he needs to dictate to them .
It look like something is off

how does going from an average of 27 to 26 yield a delta of 100%?

According to Football Reference here are the actual sack numbers for Eli's career: 13, 28, 25, 27, 27, 30, 16, 28, 19, 39// McAdoo era: 28, 27, 21. Interestingly, Eli was sacked 25.2 times per season during the Gilbride era and has been sacked 25 times per year during the McAdoo era.

Although these calculations were performed with pen, paper and my trust Radio Shack Dual Powered Solar Calculaor, there does not appear to have been any halving of the sack totals as you asserted.

First of all, remove 2004 as he only played 9 games and started 7. Secondly, you're right, I didn't normalize the delta against 100%. So when it shows 100%, that's effectively flat. I was picking up the spreadsheet from the "Eli washed up? Not by the numbers!" thread and just re-parsed the data.

And you're right, it hasn't decreased by half. But it has decreased. It decreased when BMc took over for KG, and then decreased even further when BMc took over for TC. So for the narrative that Eli is under such duress that he can't possibly perform, there's evidence here to suggest that earlier in his career, Eli was more willing to wait for plays to come open. And add to that the decreasing Y/A and Y/C and you start to see a trend of checking down (which I think many of us can anecdotally attest to as well).

I continue to say that I am not absolving the OL of any responsibility, but if you're not willing to see that Eli bears some of the responsibility himself, you're just choosing not to see the whole picture.

I hear you about McAdoo but it's hard to dictate anything when only one of your lineman (Pugh) is winning his battle on a consistent basis.
