If Eli gets suspended

Thegratefulhead : 5/15/2018 7:46 pm
Let's say Eli gets suspended 4 games for the game worn fiasco. Let's not argue if it will, could or should happen. For the sake of this argument , it happens. The Giants are 2-2 when he returns but Webb's 4th game was 300+ yards 3 tds 65% completion ratio and he looked good in a win vs the Saints at home. Does Eli start game 5? Why, why not?

Unlikely the league will suspend Eli given that the case was settled  
GeofromNJ : 5/15/2018 7:50 pm : link
and the "wronged party" is seemingly satisfied. Moreover, given that Eli admitted no wrong and the agreement is sealed, any wrong on Eli's part is purely speculative. The league should have no basis whatsoever for suspension.

Hypothetical, I get it will very likely not happen. For the sake of the discussion, believe it happens. If you need to, replace suspension with 4 week injury of your choice, would not want anyone to get bent out of shape over a FAKE suspension. If you don't want to play along, don't.
There is no chance Eli gets suspended.  
Mike from Ohio : 5/15/2018 8:03 pm : link
But assuming he did, there is no chance he loses his job to Webb no matter how well Webb plays.

Neither of those things has even a remote chance of happening.
Not happening.

2-2, no chance

but 4-0? That would make it interesting. Still wouldnít happen, but very fucking interesting indeed.
Maybe you can get suspended

These hypothetical threads never go over well around here. These people are so emotionally wrapped in their preconceived notions that even a hypothetical that differs from their view causes them to get angry and dig their heels in.

Also, the reading comprehension leaves much to be desired.

Good luck.

Eli would play through it. Webb is a hypothetical pussy.
3-1 with say 300+ yards

3 of the games would make things very interesting here. It would potentially end of being a negative with all of the second guessing that would inevitably happy either way after every game.

he won't get injured for 4 weeks. if he did get injured it would likely only be 1 or 2 weeks. and he would play through it.
Suspension? If Webb looks better than Eli in pre-season  
ZogZerg : 5/16/2018 6:37 am : link
he should obviously be the starter - right?

I'm sure some on BBI will go that way when pre-season rolls around.

Getting nervous that they might start worse threads than you? Maybe you can demand that BBI goes on record about something else soon.
The gist is, what if Webb gets an opportunity and he's great?  
exiled : 5/16/2018 7:05 am : link
Whenever this happens, the ball goes to the young hot shot. (Think Bledsoe/Brady or Romo/Dak.)

It'll be a sad, sad day for me, the end of the Eli era in Giants football. I'll always be incredibly grateful that he came to play for our team.

BamaBlue : 5/16/2018 8:17 am : link
simply because the fans demand it. Giants fans are nostalgia hungry and don't give-up on their heroes. They long for that simpler time when a Giants QB could be strip sacked with a errant glance, screen passes have the success rate of a hail mary, immobility is a virtue, and the act of sliding to the turf is a change of possession.
LOL...

I would think it would be the nostalgia of two SB MVP's, but I'm not surprised when people don't focus on that stuff. It's only the reason they play the games!
I will admit this line was funny as hell...

Hey!!  
FatMan in Charlotte : 5/16/2018 8:40 am : link
I did like the line about the sliding to the turf.

With the Eli threads, it is tough to detect sarcasm, because there are so many people who actually believe and post frequently about those points.

Duly noted about the sarcasm.
IF there is a suspension  
giants#1 : 5/16/2018 8:43 am : link
I'd bet its 2 games, not 4. Brady got 4 for something that actually impacted performance on the field and because he and the Pats have a history of pushing the limits of the rules (to put it nicely). Eli and the Giants/Maras don't have that history so any suspension will likely be shorter.
Yeah...  
BamaBlue : 5/16/2018 8:55 am : link
some days, a joke about Eli is like slapping someone's mom. I think there's at least a grain of humor in most (other) things...
There is no direct evidence  
dep026 : 5/16/2018 8:57 am : link
stating Eli knowingly did something wrong, only assumptions. Eli complied with everything as well unlike brady.

And there was video evidence of what Elliott did as well. And again, Elliott's was a criminal case, not a civil one.
