as Per Jordan Raanan. Very Un-Eli like.

Probably smart.

What is there left for him to say?

He answered the question about next year a million times.

will probably make up a few hatchet job articles to get back at him for this.

I am starting to wonder if Eli has not 100 percent made up his mind to definitely come back.

I agree and the remarks by his father are significant. I think the everything is Eli's fault crowd is going to be in for quite a thick when god-knows-who takes over.
I think this is it  
rocco8112 : 12/31/2018 3:00 pm : link
He packs it in. I think he might get cut too.

No smart person thinks it is all Manning's fault, same as not thinking the success a while back was all thanks to him. But, clearly, he's part of the problem and worse than that, he's part of the problem and makes by far the most on the team (never good in a salary cap environment).
100% within his rights to avoid being asked the same question  
mfsd : 12/31/2018 3:12 pm : link
27 different ways, good for him.

As others have said in other threads, the question isnít Eli yes or Eli no, itís Eli for $23 million yes or no too
Figures, Eli has always had a bad attitude

and made it all about himself versus the team...
This is good news  
Les in TO : 12/31/2018 3:23 pm : link
Iím waiting for the announcement of the special news conference in the coming days. Fourth kid on the way, money in the bank, still healthy, no real prospects of competing for a championship any time soon. Do it Eli! Retire with your money rings and health!

6 of 7 years no playoffs .... what would really be the difference???

Certainly possible.
Right or wrong, good fans or bad, he's been nothing but attacked in New York over the last two seasons. Nobody in print or on the mic (except for Francesa) has had his back. Who needs it?
The point is  
mittenedman : 12/31/2018 6:57 pm : link
he never had limits or made himself inaccessible before. He would patiently sit there and boringly answer every question thrown his way.

Those SBs don't exist now?
