    It looks to be the only team where he'd have a legitimate chance of starting, so I'm not surprised NY is his first choice.

    I'm happy for him, and I hope he takes that starting job from that wuss Eli Manning (assuming he signs with the New York football Giants).

    Why would you call Manning a wuss?

    He just comes off to me as the whiny, wuss type. No harm intended.

    I agree about Manning. I don't think he's a wuss on the field, but his actions on draft day sure didn't win him any brownie points with me. I agree with the sentiment shared by most of the players that were asked on NFL Total Access. Paraphrasing: It's a privelage to play in this league. You should be thankful for being drafted and if you're "all that" then you should shut up, go where you were drafted and make that team better."

    Although they were good athletes I never liked John Elway or Jeff George either. I think it's chicken (bleep) to put yourself above every other player that came before you. No one's that good. If you go to a team that, after you've played there for a couple years, doesn't make an effort to win then you sign a contract somewhere else. If I was a guy like Eli, holding all the cards so to speak, all I would need to do is sign a 2 or 3 year deal with the team that drafted me. Even without saying so, that would illustrate to the team that I would not be sticking around if things didn't improve. Then, if there's been no commitment to improving I could sign with the team of my choice as a free agent. What's so hard about that?

    I know, I know, it's not just about where you play, but about endorsements and crap like that. I agree though, but I don't think it's necessary to be in the largest market to make money with endorsements. Look at Vick or Favre. If you're a stud, the endorsements will come whether you're in Green Bay or New York.

    Going by his actions, it looks to me like Eli is very unsure about himself. He doesn't think he's good enough to lead a team out of mediocrity in San Diego and he's afraid of losing money in endorsements by not being in a major market. Very "wuss-like" if you ask me. Not to mention he's been riding the coat tails of Peyton's success for leverage. He claims to want "to be his own MANning" yet allows his daddy and big brother to interfere when things don't go his way. Wuss.
