Just passing along some info

1st and 10 : 10/14/2019 6:50 am
as mentioned a few times, I have a friend in the industry (not associated with any 1 team) and every once in a while, he passes along some good info.

With that said, he told me to hang on to my hat regarding the Eli rumor mill and him being traded. These rumors are already picking up big time after Sunday's games as numerous teams are now rumored to be looking for a QB prior to the trade deadline. He expects Eli will be rumored or linked to 3-4 teams.

a counterpoint is that the no trade clause means Eli controls his destination, just as in FA. Having the Giants in the middle makes it a little messier, true, but he also gets a jump start on the competition next year (a bird in the hand...).


Sure, like I said, it's an educated guess.

Everyone needs to RELAX.
He needs to go to a team with a top 5 OL in the league.  
Mike in Long Beach : 10/14/2019 9:34 am : link
I absolutely still believe he can make most of the throws he was making his prime. But I've literally never seen a more immobile QB. That has been his donwfall, not his arm. But if he gets extraordinary protection, I do think he's still very capable of picking apart most defenses.

The only teams I could see him agreeing to go to are the Steelers and Saints. The Saints are not interested because Brees will be back soon and Bridgewater is playing well in his absence.

The Steelers make the most sense, they are in win now mode and they have a very good team minus the QB. Interestingly enough the Steelers have a bye week next week. Were they to acquire Eli in the next few days he would have nearly two full weeks to learn the playbook.


I was a Teddy guy since his Vikings days, but he isn't very good. They have been winning on the back of their defense and run game. Brees is coming back so its moot. The one team that makes sense at all is the Steelers and that is entirely how they feel about Rudolph, but he hasn't impressed anyone. I thought a trade was extremely unlikely but the afc north sucks and the steelers have the line to protect him.

Giantophile : 10/14/2019 9:37 am : link
continue to overvalue the market for Eli. The Jags are in the midst of full blown "Minshew Mania", a young exciting QB they can market to a fanbase desperate for a new face. You think they're gonna trade for Eli? Please.

Maaaaybe the Steelers could use him but I think the OVERWHELMING odds are that Eli finishes the season as the #2 QB, picks up his paycheck then hangs em up at the end of the year.

Alrighty then, feel better? Of course we don't know, thus the educated guess preface.



I feel fine. Educated guess is one thing, absolutes are very different and I'm not convinced with your educated guess.

I don't see athletes who have a chance to play sitting on the bench too often. If the Giants present a trade scenario to Eli, I feel like he'd take it. To other people's points I don't see any team considering Eli a long-term option, and I don't see him wanting to be a backup. If he has a chance to play meaningful games down the stretch I imagine he'd waive his NTC. Or he's simply realized he reached the end and plans to retire after the season.

But, I don't know. As my post indicated, none of us does.





That's fine, next time I'll actually provide absolutes.

Titans with Mariota and Tannehill arenít doing shit. They proved it getting shut out yesterday.

Eli can run that New England / Vrabel offense.

It would be a perfect situation for Eli.

Plus, you know how many karaoke bars there are in Nashville? That alone will get Eli to waive the NTC

Jax almost has to go with Minshew. Same with Chicago and Mitch. Indy New Orleans and Minnesota are not options.

The Titans however, just benched Mariota for Tannehill. Talk about QB hell. Titans seems to be built around power OL, run game and defense. Pretty perfect for Eli at this stage. Probably worth a shot for them at 2-4.

Pittsburgh coming off a win and with Rudolph out might be a log shot play if they were confident Eli is hanging them up at the end of the season with Ben still there, otherwise awkward for many reasons.


Abby is from Memphis and her family is there so as far as the wife is concerned, maybe she wouldnít mind Tennessee. Plus Vols ties to Peyton. Never know how things turn out

And let's just play along for a half a second and let's say that this rumor is true and Eli is willing to waive his no trade clause...what's he worth?



He can only be traded before the deadline.

Disinformation central at it again  
WillieYoung : 10/14/2019 9:58 am : link
Eli's salary is not 20 Million, it's 11.5. That 718,000 a game. With 6 games gone so is $4.2 Million of that salary.
Giants would probably jump for joy to get $7.3 million of cap savings so a 5th or a 6th is a lot more likely a return than a 2nd or 3rd.

However, the way things are going for the Giants, Jones is certain to get injured the week after we trade Eli.

Wrong. They started Geno Smith and lost to the Oakland freakin Raiders for their 3rd loss. So whatever 1-3 2-3 it is not a good winning pct. Really this just goes to show fans know nothing. How many went out and bought Jones Jerseys after one game and thought all of this teams problems were solved after one game vs. the bucs? many here too I'm sure.

Don't make it seem like this team wasn't fair to Eli? Damn straight I am! I am at the point where I have been rooting against this team for 2 weeks in a row now after being a fan since I was a little boy in the early 80s.

Really he's been way to nice of a guy with what has been going on around this place for like 5-6 years now. Reese and his BS. Getting benched by some total loser of a coach.

Gettlemen and his cluelessness "A QB challenge on draft night" or "Greenbay Rogers situation" Like WTF? What did Rogers sit for like 3 years? So you get a guy at 6 who no one had any kind of interest in or thought was a particularly good prospect. If they were serious you would have gotten Josh Allen and maybe picked someone up in free agency or whatever and made a run for it. If not say so and cut Eli and save the 5 mil or whatever.


Wow. Well everyone has an opinion, you are certainly entitled to yours.

You and I are just coming from different places; it s very difficult for me to relate to the idea of rooting against the Giants because of them sitting a player, any player.

Pittsburgh is the ideal place  
Jay on the Island : 10/14/2019 10:10 am : link
They have a very talented roster. They are down to their 3rd QB Devlin Hodges. Rudolph could be back soon but he wasn't playing very well outside of the Bengals game.

The Steelers have a bye week next week and are still in win now mode. They seem to be the ideal fit for Eli as he would have nearly two full weeks to learn the offense which is plenty of time for Eli.

The Steelers traded their 2020 1st round pick for Minkah Fitzpatrick. They are trying to win now and Devlin Hodges is not the QB to get them there. Eli doesn't have to be 2011 Eli to improve their QB situation.

I think some here are underestimating  
Mike from Ohio : 10/14/2019 10:59 am : link
Eli's competitive nature. He may not value cashing paychecks and going home to play with his kids as much as he wants to simply be playing football right now. Guys don't get to where he got if their personality is "wow, it's awesome to get paid to do nothing!"

Eli may very well waive his NTC to go to a team like the Titans even if they are not a playoff team just to play. The question is why would the Titans bring him in? Is he markedly better than Tannehill at this point? What do you do with Mariota now that you have essentially said he is not your guy?

I think the bigger problem with trading Eli is not does he want to still play somewhere else but what team has a situation that he would fit?

He's a perfect band aid for a team missing it's starter for this year that still has playoff aspirations. Who is that? New Orleans? No way they move of Bridgewater since he has won every game he has started. Jacksonville? You just paid Foles a bunch of money. Is this team a contender with Eli this year? I tend to doubt it but they may feel differently. That is the only logical destination I can see for him this year.

I live Eli, but have always been and will continue be, a Giants fan first



Just curious, would you still have that opinion if Jones turns out to be a bust and Giants were to sign Colin Kapernick? Not sure what you feel about it him but assuming you find his antics distasteful as most do. A bicep kisser among other things.


Big, I m a Giants fan. I m not a Kapernick (sp) fan, but if Jones was a bust and they signed him, I d root for the team.

But I donít get your analogy, Kapernick is a known commodity, and not very good, plus he brings controversy. Jones is a rookie high draft pick with potential.

Also in an earlier text you alluded to Jones and the interceptions implying they would not have happened with Eli.

You really should check out Eli s place in all time interceptions by quarterbacks before you throw that out there. Again entitled to your opinion, but if you lose objectivity people wonít take your pts seriously.

If he was chasing a championship maybe, but he has hardware. I agree that he stays.
I would think that if Eli wanted to play anywhere else

he would just ask for his release and the Giants would grant it. Sure we might get a pick but possibly in the 4th round range or later. If thats the case then its worth hanging on to Eli and let him become a FA then if he signs elsewhere for a boatload of money we could get a comp pick out of it.

If I had to guess I would say that he will stay with the Giants this season and explore FA next year and if no good offers come in he just retires. Options are fairly limited right now and why not just wait it out and make the best choice instead.
It explains why we held on to Tanney

A trade is much better from a cap perspective. If he is released, he still gets paid. If he is traded, the remainder of his salary comes off the books.

Would make lots of sense.
Love the hell out of Eli...

I would not hesitate providing he approves of a trade not
for a moment and take whatever you can get for him .
At this point I would add Tate Ellison Soldier Jenkins
and Ogletree to the list accumulate picks and continue
to build . Draft capitol to move up as well .
We will certainly add a few more players in free agency .
