Where, iyo, does Eli go from here?

Big Blue '56 : 1/23/2020 5:23 pm
TV booth? NFL sanctioned Goodwill ambassador? Coaching? Personnel position?

Whatever he decides might come about after he has spent quality time with his family..

What say you?

He will probably go out of the lime light for a year or two...

Seriously, though, I think it was robbieballs who recently floated the idea of a the Giants and Eli creating a foundation to continue Eli's philanthropic endeavors. I thought that was an outstanding idea.

today MNF should go after BOTH Peyton and Eli for the booth.

He surmised that perhaps they can convince Peyton if they bring in Eli, he said that hes been around both of them together and that theyre very engaging and very funny.

Don't think it'll happen, appreciated the thought though.
I kinda have a feeling we wonít see much of him

But I hope Iím wrong and Payton become the next Madden/Summerall. Except brothers.

Hello OBJ!

Not happening.

The Cleveland Browns are near the bottom of the list of NFL teams in terms of value, but they're still worth over $2 billion.

My Eli prediction is that he ends up as an analyst on the SEC Network.

NFL Team Value - ( New Window )

Did not read your post, but join Saban coaching staff as he seems to have the 4-5 star QB crowd vetted.

Eliís cap hit for his last contract wasnít that bad  
UConn4523 : 1/23/2020 7:21 pm : link
it just looked bad because he wasnít good enough to justify it anymore. His salary wasnít the reason why we stunk, we basically failed at too man FA signings, poor drafts and poor coaching.

Eli making a few million peas per year wouldnít have changed any of the above. Meanwhile Brady had the best coaching in the league - the slight discount Brady gave them didnít make them consistently great.

Unless you have business or roots in the area, being rich in NJ isn't a wise idea.

The best gig in football is the CBS pre game show. It's in NY, you don't travel, and there's no crazies.

If Romo leaves and Phil ends up back on the road, I could see Eli on set.

His kids are 8, 6, 4 and 1, so at least the first two are in school. His wife has business and philanthropic interests in NY. It's not that easy to just pick up and move the whole family - they may prefer staying in the area.

Why? Sure itís cheaper elsewhere but he has access to everything where he currently is. Great schools, business opportunities, transportation, and his roots have been here for over 15 years now.

I donít see Eli Manning blowing his money just because heís in the tri state area.

If he's got business reasons to stay, it's a great place to make money in his field. It's the easiest place to make money as an investor, being in the media, or staying in football.

If you're not there for work or family, being rich in New Jersey is not a wise idea. Might be nice and enjoyable, but not wise.

Lol of course it's an opinion, what else would it be?

NJ has the 3rd highest overall tax burden in the country, being rich in NJ costs a lot of money, and in my opinion if you don't have business or roots keeping you there it's not a wise decision.

Don't you think he would have moved prior to today if that was a serious concern?

Well prior to today his job was in New Jersey and he was making 25M dollars a year at it, so that seems like a good reason to live there.

Like I posted originally and a few times since, I get living in the tri-state area if your work is there or if you have roots. Maybe he considers it home now, who the fuck knows?

I also would guess he would stick around if he ends up working in the media or a business venture in the area.

My guess is, like many other wealthy people who've made their fortune in the tri-state area and either retire or move to a different line of business, they move somewhere else.

That's not a very exotic take. I'm not that wealthy and I know lots of people (including myself) who get out of the area when feasible because it's awfully expensive.
So is it really that much cheaper across the river?  
montanagiant : 1/23/2020 10:31 pm : link
NJ or Manhatten, He obviously likes where he lives now I don't really think after making 200M+ he's going to worry about additional tax vs living in overpriced Manhatten
Tri state area is expensive  
UConn4523 : 1/24/2020 7:32 am : link
he can afford it. Being rich in the tri state area is only a bad idea if you are dumb with your money. Your kinda calling him stupid for staying in NJ (if he indeed stays) which is my problem with your opinion. Just a weird comment to make. Not everyoneís goal in life is to find the cheapest housing possible, nor should it be.

In any case Iím betting he stays and will be just fine regardless of whether he collects another paycheck or not.
