Remember Tom Coughlin is in Jacksonville. Eli has done well in the past with a good D and running game. Maybe Tom made a friendly phone call to his old buddies in NY. The offer must be substantial enough that they'd bench Eli to evaluate their other QBs. They probably trust Tom that he is being straight with them about the seriousness of their offer.

At age 36 and with an extraordinary health history he could have a few more solid years in him behind a decent O Line. That would probably be perfect for Jax.

I bet Eli would jump at the opportunity.

It is a big decision for NY. They probably could patch up the O Line and be competitive next year. However with three above average teams in the NFC East, maybe this would be the time to accept a pick for Eli and rebuild.

Okay, you've had your fun with this, now be serious for a moment. Why do THEY think this is a good idea?

Do they think someone will give them a 2nd round pick for Eli? It would have to be a team that is playoff-caliber except at QB. That used to be Denver, but they've been exposed. Jacksonville?

The only other reason to bench Eli is to get the team to think along these lines--that management is thinking about blowing up the team and rebuilding. Could it be a way to motivate them to play harder and give their fans something to hope for next year?

Here you go again...

What THREE teams are above average in the NFC East? Right now, the only team above average is the Eagles. The NFC is in the shitter right now. It can change quickly for sure but, history tells us the Redskins will continue to look good on paper but not on the field. It looks like Dallas has quite a few problems, which may (or may not) get worked out.

You claim the Eagles aren't as good as their record indicates but you then post here indicating Dallas and the Redskins are above average.

SMH...
