I have so much respect for Archie and Payton Manning, but 0 for Eli. Ever since draft day, when he acted like a spoiled rotten brat and would not put on the Chargers hat, he has rubbed me the wrong way. Then to see him on the verge or tears after being benched. He just really irks me.

Maybe dumping Manning will free up money against the salary cap so the Giants can afford to get some real football players.

That will be a silly move. Let the new QB learn from him for next 2 yrs. It takes time for QB to adjust to NFL.

Use Eli to prepare his successor and send him out with respect. Dumping him now doesn't make sense rather build a fresh O-Line.

Why do you respect Archie but not Eli? It was Archie's idea in the first place to pull the draft day craziness with Eli.

You are missing the point. I have no issue with the trade. I have an issue with the fact of not putting the hat on. You put the hat on, take the picture and then do what you have to do behind the closed doors. The pouty face was a joke.
