Let me get this straight people because the Giants front office is always making excuses.

The team has won two super bowls with Tom and eli. The past three seasons the offensive line has been crashing and bring subsequently leading to a horrible running game and a horrible eli manning. When the offensive line was productive and Eli had time he was an elite qb.

So what was the thought process behind changing the entire offensive system. The only one eli has known and has been productive in simply because the offensive line could not protect him in the old system.

My question is why not draft and spend the money on better offensive linemen rather than trying change and entire system that has worked for eli?

Why not do your best to compliment and make eli comfortable rather than making him even more uncomfortable late in his career?

Why can't they understand it's the talent around eli not the system. The system has worked in the past.

So random thought and wasn't sure where to post but, with OBJ being injured all training camp and the season thus far.....

Could we imagine if the front office was actually using their heads and drafted an outside receiver to compliment Victor Cruz, say like Kelvin Benjamin..... One can wonder....
