This year has been HORRIBLE for the NY Giants.

After drafting a running back, Barkley, with their first pick and “trying” to upgrade their offensive line.  I figured we would win about 10 games this year.

Boy was I wrong.

Not only does my team look horrible, but Eli looks even worse.

It’s weird with Eli.  Although his stats do not look very bad, especially when compared to other starting quarterbacks in the league, it’s obvious that he isn’t getting the job done.

He isn’t winning.  The team isn’t scoring points.

And he looks SLOW.

I understand the offensive line stinks and nobody disputes that, but he needs to get quicker.

You don’t necessarily have to be a fast quarterback.  Montana was slow, Brady is slow (although he can complete a quarterback sneak).

But that game is changing, you need to be able to move “a little”.

Eli is so slow now, that he can barely hike the ball and reach back to pass.

His arm strength is still good, although not always accurate, but he needs to work on his off-season training.

How do I know?

First of all, he is younger than me.

Secondly, his physique doesn’t lie, he looks terrible.

I understand how your speed really starts to go after age 35, especially if you don’t A) lift heavy weights B) Sprint

Is Eli doing either? Doubtful…

He looks horrible.  You can tell he isn’t lifting heavy or sprinting at all.

Is he deadlifting and squatting 500?

Has he signed up for any sprint competitions in the off season? Is he training with a track and field program to get his 40 time down to what he ran in College?

Is he eating properly? he can afford the top supplements and personal chefs money can buy.

Come on Eli!  Pick up your off-season training or it’s career over.

Drew Brees still has a rocket release, Brady is getting the job done.

35+ is not a death sentence.

Lift Heavy/Run Fast

Men generally do not live as long as women.  That not only goes for just humans, but for animals as well.

I’m not sure if it is from the testosterone or possibly the positive benefits of child-birth, but women live several years later than men on average.

Men also traditionally marry younger.  Whether this is because of the earning power discrepancy or the length of a women’s fertility, men typically marry someone younger than themselves.

The combination of living longer and marrying an older man,  often means that daddy passes away a lot earlier than mommy.

Usually.

I am statistically in that same boat.

I am about a year and a half older than my wife and although I work out and eat cleaner than she does, her vital signs are always better than mine are.

Her blood pressure is always lower, her cholesterol and blood sugar have always been in check.

It’s just one of those things,

Like I stated in my last post, it’s really hard to eat super clean when you have a family.

I can’t stay out dancing in the 90 degree heat until 4 a.m and then eat a can of tuna for breakfast like I used to.

Obligations change.

With that being said, more families should try to eat healthier together.

Usually when you see an obese family, you can tell that they are all eating the same crap and keeping the same bad habits.

Children follow the routines of their parents and parents usually copy off each other.

In my family, I want daddy to eat healthier.  To the point where I may need to eat a separate meal.

Does it sound selfish?

I think its common math.  I am already supposed to die earlier, shouldn’t I try to extend my life past my life expectancy?

If I can push out another 2-5 years, then maybe my wife and I can live until our 90’s and beyond.

Let’s face it.  You aren’t worth much to your family dead.

Eat healthy guys!
