Serious question. You can’t just start Webb and if Eli gets benched does it water down his streak? Should it have any impact on strategy going forward? In all honesty it shouldn’t but if we’re being honest with ourselves it definitely will. Greatest player in franchise history you have to be careful how you let his final season(s) play out.
Greates OFFENSIVE player in team history
but as long as Eli is healthy, he is 3 levels better than our next option.
He won’t break the record anyway
Makes no sense and Its not going to happen
is actually ready to play at some point this year. Throwing Webb out there just because the season is a clusterfuck isn't helpful to anyone. If they think he can handle it, he should play.
I think Eli's ego can handle that.
it's easy to start Eli and replace him early.
The line is shit but it is time to get rid of Geno Smith or give Webb a uniform
the end of the Eli era. Whatever happens the rest of the year, this team will look very different next year and Eli may not be in the picture. I've always been a huge supporter and I remain one.

I'm betting Eli is less redneck than you are. He's a wine vintage collecting, only golf at top 100 courses, summer in Quogue white guy, so, yeah.
Anyway, they should just say fuck it and start Webb, not because Eli is garbage but because they need to know what they have before the draft as best as possible, but Mara won't allow it, even if the streak wasn't a thing.

Some ugly stuff surfaces on BBI when things go bad. Eli comes from the South, but he sure isn't a "redneck."

Let's remember Webb isn't even the backup QB. He's the 3rd QB. He's never even had a jersey for an NFL game. But if they're 0-7 at the bye, he's going to get some game action afterward. Probably won't start.
one of the worst posters on here in regards to Eli...
but a backup that makes close to league minimum and floats around the league. Jumping over him is no issue.
I don't think much of Webb's chances, the probability that he works out, but there's at least a shot for him to be more than that and they need to see something from him on the off chance that they don't need to draft a QB top five. If the team operated less sentimentally, I'd say it sucks for Eli, but they obviously won't go there and he's going to keep playing unless Hart and Flowers tag team him into injury.
insert Webb behind this terrible line and now-injured offense? He'll only learn dreadful habits.
Has to beat out Geno first
Then Geno .the season is over time to let Geno go why should he stay here ......
