Now sure this was posted before or not ..

I mean...if Brady and Brees and his brother can voluntarily give some money back...


Ah, whatever
I know we have to move on and I get that  
TommytheElephant : 3/14/2019 5:11 pm : link
But HOW are we supposed to do that in 2019?

Teddy Bridgewater? Blake Bortles ?

What is the alternative right now ?
Interesting note

but the "highest paid ever" stuff is somewhat laughable - Otto Graham wasn't pulling in this paycheck back in the day. Salaries have exploded over the past 25 years. The record may be tough to break though - #1 overall picks no longer get the crazy money Peyton and Eli got from day one.

It's a combination of being a #1 overall pick when it still meant earning a fortune on the rookie contract, along with never taking a pay-reducing restructure throughout a lengthy career. But I think any reasonable fan would agree that it's surprising that Eli will eventually retire as the highest paid player in NFL history when he has had contemporaries that have been arguably more accomplished throughout his career.
It's actually higher...

But we just haven't seen the 3 year extension yet.
Iíve got no envy  
Bill L : 3/14/2019 5:35 pm : link
And really thatís the only thing that can bear disparaging cumulative earnings.

I get the 17 or 24 or whatever because that has actual consequence. But lifetime? Thatís irrelevant.

This is exactly right. The time to move on was last year's draft.

Eli is a single earner or income in his household. Brady isn't even the bread winner at his house. LOL

Brady takes less of a salary because he married someone that is worth more than him. Not that Eli needs more money. I think he should told him he takes a pay cut or he gets cut. Period.
Considering he played most of his career  
chuckydee9 : 3/14/2019 6:18 pm : link
with the same salary cap with Peyton and other then one year of their life together in the NFL, Peyton was a far better player than Eli.. I think its fair to say that Giants have treated him well.. I don't regret the past money thats been given to him.. but the upcoming year he doesn't deserve the $17M he is making..

Eli is one of the greatest Giant quarterbacks,  
joeinpa : 3/14/2019 6:26 pm : link
One of the greatest Giants period.

His two championship runs bought him a lot of equity with this franchise.
Worth it.

what about Brady's championship? how about ben? How come the Giants paid way more for their 2 championships.. and then have how many seasons with a top 10 draft pick? When all is said and done.. Eli manning is milking the Mara's for all they can possibly afford..
NOW WE KNOW  
BlueLou'sBack : 3/14/2019 6:55 pm : link
why the Maras insisted on keeping Eli at his current salary through the 2019 season.







So Eli could win his bet with Peyton.

for the offensive line they've saddled him with for the last 8-9 years and defense for much of that time.
This obviously doesn't count

the under the table money Brady gets from craft for TB12.
Is this some sort of dig at Eli?

Good for him for making the most money he could while being saddled with a shitty FO.

God no not with them. Whatís the point? Cut Eli for one of them and save a few million? Ok??? Why??

Why do we complicate this ? Itís easy yet fans just canít wrap their fucking heads around it. Eli is the qb for now. When the giants find a qb in the draft they will draft that qb and he will replace Eli. Itís going to happen sooner or later, shit it could happen this April. Why this confounds and bothers so many and how it has sparked this endless and tired and loud and over the top, over fucking done narrative just blows me away.

Paying him doesnít make them good at building a team.

This is the shit that drives me nuts. Do you really think the problem with the giants these last 5-6 years has been Eli ?? THAT is what is wrong here???

Gimme a break already. The qb who canít run like russel Wilson is the problem but the worst OL and the worst defense in football over that time frame isnít. Is that it)??

Look it up, find me a worst defense. Find me a shittier OL. This isnít made up. This isnít myth. QBs rarely ever perform without both. Yet Eli pretty much did perform. He wasnít bad in 2014-2015 was he? Was he that terrible in 2016? I distinctly remember him firig darts all over the packers in that playoff game. Did Eli really hold that team back when all was said n done?

Iíll give you first half 2018. Eli was bad. Canít deny that but again, worst OL/ D in football. The guy has had little to no help here lately. But his contract is the problem?

Cardinals had a worse O-line by far. They apparently had something like 8 or 10 different starting OL lineups throughout the year. Giants defense sucked in part because they put so much top draft capital and money into the offense, and tried to fill the defense (especially LB) primarily with mid-late round picks and free agents.

I don't begrudge Eli for making as much money as he could, he deserved it. But he could have taken a bit of a pay cut for an extra legit free agent on his offensive line.

This such a worn, unsupportable talking point.

Brady takes less because heís completely obsessed with winning championships, and understands the economics of the cap system. That doesnít mean he agrees with all of the moves the Pats make to get better. He is just wound differently and still determined outperform his six round draft selection.
Brady counts as 27 million against Pats cap this year  
ZogZerg : 3/15/2019 7:51 am : link
Eli is only counting 23 million.

Have any of these numbnuts calculated $ per games started?

Brady is 4th this year in cap hit and Manning is tied for 10th
Brady has lead his team to super bowl 4 of last 5 years .. he freaking deserves it

and by the way Brady is GOAT been in the league 4 YEARS LONGER and he has earned less total money than Eli Manning ..
