Eli is a dead man walking. You see the schedule hes got from here on out? That O-line is gonna get Eli killed.

yea this is not a wise decision IMO. The Giants O line is not good. This is not the same as Big Ben. I wonder how many coverage sacks the giants yield as it is?

The same Atlanta D that gave up 50-some points to KC?


Atlanta is the 4th highest scoring fantasy defense in my league.

Ahead of teams such as the Patriots. Eagles, Bucs, etc.

Don't sleep on them.

Despite the fact that this move has little fantasy implication (other than making Atlanta D an attractive start if they weren't already) it's still the right move for the Giants.

With the injuries they're are now faced with and Warner's increasing inadequacy, thier chances of getting to the playoffs are dwindling quick. Even if Eli stinks it up and the Giants lose every game they'll be better prepared for next year.

I agree. Even if you guys snuck into the playoffs you still arent winning anything, these games can be very valuable for Eli.

or he could get hurt and have his confidence shaken.

given his pedigree, it could be the right move. but the giants are usually very on top of their development, and not rash at the very least.

Let eli learn this year, get SOME reps and let warner take the shots. fix the line in the offseason and let him go from there.

I don't understand this move. I think you have a better chance with Warner then Manning. THis could get real ugly for the Giants.
