Eli cashes in

August 6, 2009

The Super Bowl 42 victory against the then 18-0 Patriots, cashed in a big way on Wednesday as Eli Manning signed a 6 year $97.5 million dollar contract extension with the New York Giants.  His annual salary now exceeds his older brother Peyton’s by nearly $1 million dollars per season.  There are many naysayers who don’t believe that Eli is worth the money of a top 5 quarterback.  We all saw what happened when everybody doubted him a couple years ago.  He has a super bowl ring on his resume, as well as the fact that he has taken the Giants to the playoffs in four straight years.  I truly believe that Eli will have one of his best seasons this year.  I know that there is no Plaxico Burress, but Eli has matured, and this year it will show a great deal.  For some reason I think this can be a special season for the GMEN.
