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.

Read one of my books….
