"Eli took me to the low post and won"

SaqBar999 : 1/2/2019 6:05 pm
Gettleman:

1) Blamed the DEFENSE for the losses.

2) Said "I had a candid conversation with Eli. Eli then took me to the low post and won"

Key word: Won

Easy to see that Eli will be the QB in 2019.
Cool

I hear that, but I don't think it means he's going to be a Giant next year. I think it was Gettleman admitting that Eli told him why they suck and agreeing with him.
I think Eli made some points  
MotownGIANTS : 1/2/2019 6:12 pm : link
but there is also the FACT the OL needs to improve and his play does not warrant the tag .... I agree that comment was very telling as I noted it as well in another thread but it is clear Gettleman expressed and held to there still needs to be some give and take on both sides ... Eli wants to stay and currently he is the best short term option and if he wants to win he needs to accept the fact to stay and win it means giving up $$$$ ... but the question is what and where is the middle ground.
Why would Eli throwing team mates under the bus

be a positive thing to applaud, and why would you think the GM would make this known even if it did happen.

Because he has the capacity to do it privately.

Knowing Eli, it was probably some doofy left handed shot off the wrong foot - and I bet he shrugged his shoulders and said "aw, shucks!" when he airballed it.
Trading Snacks and Apple pretty much guaranteed that an already shakey

Im not sure why nobody else is talking about this?

You can't trade your best player on defense and a top 10 pick that is still developing and not expect the unit to take a major decline.

BPA at 6 unlress you love a QB
Snacks a better 4-3 DT  
bc4life : 1/2/2019 7:30 pm : link
more importnat 30+ big contract knee issues and liek DG said keeping compelled to play younger talented players out of position.

Apple was a reach. It's a head thing with him.

It has been mentioned on a few occasions, but gets drowned out by the 4 threads per day arguing the 1-2 observations/game that support the “why Eli sucks” narrative.
Yup Eli is the qb for next 10-15 years!
