Default Pats can breathe a sigh of relief - Eli is done

I know you were all worried, but the Giants staff decided that if they are going to keep losing, which they will, because the offense and defense stinks; that they ought to see how their
#1 draft pick - Daniel Jones can play. It was painful watching a once excellent QB floundering with inexperienced receivers and linemen. Perhaps Jones can bring some fire, Eli is burnt out from the last few years with a bad team. He had a hell of a good run - 2 Super Bowls and 2 SB MVPS and made a ton of $. Never missed a game either !!

Time for a change. The only constant in life is change !

He is deserving of the HOF. Tough to talk about football without talking about the throw eli made to david tyree to give the giant loss to the pats.

On the way to Canton, is there a stop in New Orleans/Pittsburgh.
If I had a HOF vote he would not get it.

I am a Patriots Fan in all respects and have also been watching NFL Football for about 50 years. Eli was more or less SACKED when he made that throw and Tyree hauling the ball in against his brain bucket was a combination of two amazing/impossible acts, made by two different players in the same play! Still get sick to my stomach thinking about it. Loosing that Superbowl HURT but I figured there would be more Superbowls. Being that close to beating the 72 Dolphins Record and coming up short was devastating. Oh how sweet it would have been to have silenced Mercury Morris! I was stuck in a San Fransisco Hotel watching the game and when I called home to CT after the game my house was in shock including an 11 year old in tears.

I hate the Giants, love it when they get beat but scoreboards don’t lie and those bastards stepped up under the leadership of Eli and beat my team twice in the big game. Time changes everything and everyone but Eli has had a great career IMO and I don’t see how he doesn’t end up in the HOF. In my opinion he rates it for sure.....

Eli should have bowed out gracefully a few years ago. The last couple of years have tarnished his career. Sadly some veterans just cant let go of the attention and juice that comes with playing on Sunday. I think he will get traded in the next month and will get beat up in somebody else's system. If I were the Giants, I would jump at a 3rd round pick for him.

I know this is about Eli but have you seen his nephew Arch? 14 years old and already the starter on his Varsity team......
As painful as the Tyree catch was to you it was that thrilling to me to preserve the 72 Dolphins record.

As an Eagles fan I am sad to see him go. I hope he comes back to play another 2-3 seasons for the Giants at $20m+/yr.

Agree with others, he is this generations Jim Plunkett, never considered a top 5 QB so not worth HOF. His most famous moments are amazing catches by his receivers.

Well if I am correct the Giant D gave up 63 points in 2 games and the Giants let one of the best WR's in NFL get away

I do think Jones is going to be a good NFL QB in the long run

After all Eli does have 2 SB rings
