Well we don't have Rosen or Darnold on the roster. Davis Webb will get game time too.

The move isn't about benching Eli. It's about evaluating the roster. They kept Eli in as long as they were mathematically in contention. Now they are mathematically eliminated. It's time to evaluate.

There is no point in playing a vet as old as Eli while the Giants are out of it. Might as well look at other things.

New Yorkers truly are assholes LMAO.

The Giants are chickenshit for not only pulling an obvious tank job, which is whatever-it happens, but to treat a legend of their decent QB stable history like this.

It's also disrespectful to the fans. I'm sure they're over Eli being their Qb but kowing that, some probably want to see him finish up the campaign and then move on. I dunno how many home games they have left but who wants to watch Geno fumble a snap when they could at least see an old warrior doing it. Riding out in POOP fields but riding out on his stead nonetheless lol.

**** John Mara. When he croaks, I won't give two shits. He's a terrible guy. I used to think Jones was the Palpatine of the NFL but it's honestly this ****ing guy. Conspired with the NFL to rob the Redskins and Cowboys just because they took adv of a gap in the CBA.

Watching Eli in almost tears was heartbreaking

They say there's no right way to move on... but there are wrong ways to avoid. Don't know who's idea it was to do it like this fk Mara too. You don't do a Giant legend like that.

I mean come on, you put all that together and I sure expect Brady to have some better stats, but fact is it's super close DESPITE all those advantages for Brady

My bad.

Brady still >>>> Wilson and it's not particularly close either.

He isn't owed a lifetime starting job and the overwhelming majority of players don't get to choose how their tenure with a particular team ends. What I don't get though is why they think there is any chance Geno Smith is going to do something that will lead to them not drafting a quarterback.

Roethlisberger
Wentz
Wilson

I would even argue Kirk Cousins is at least equal to Wilson right now, three great seasons in a row with a mediocre at best team. Lost top two receivers with which he had rapport- only time in NFL history a team lost two 1,000 yd receivers in the same offseason.

I also think Goff has to be in the conversation now. Scheme product or not, he's flying high in McVay's offense and is gaining confidence, can mkae mostly all NFL throws with quick release

I don't care what ay of you homers say.

Wilson has been damn good this season given his resources but it's not like he is playing like a top player in the league right now.

Is he in legit MVP talks? His team is winning yet I haven't heard any peeps about him poss winning the award.

Right now it's Brady, Wentz, Rivers even Keenum. Roethlisberger's team is good but he hasn't been all that great

Brady and Wentz have both been better than wilson, no question about that.

Rivers and Keenum...

I like Rivers, but he would never survive the pass rushes Russell Wilson sees week in and week out with that shit O line and no run game. Phillip would be laying on his back most of the time or hurt. Brady would be ded too.
