The New York media pressed Eli Messiah today and asked him if he would welcome Plaxico Burress back to the team. But the question is leading. Like if you would ask any dude if he would welcome a back rub from Kelly Monaco.
Which, incidentally, Eli declined.
The point is, what do you expect Eli to say in that situation? Hey Eli, do you want to go back to winning and not sucking, or would you rather continue to be exposed as a bad quarterback? The answer is pretty simple.
What is amusing is that everybody is just figuring out right now that Eli is nothing without Burress. The media is standing there with that befuddled look, similar to the look Terry Benedict had once he realized how Ocean's 11 ripped off his casino. Did the field say Super Bowl XLII? It was staged. It was a tape. I want you to find out how they hacked into my system and made me believe that Eli was a good quarterback!
Honestly people, am I the only one who watches football? At least the only one watching football without Archie Manning's rose-colored glasses. Eli's success was obviously tied to Burress.
But instead of being pissed, maybe it's time to rejoice now that you have all finally come to that conclusion.
Still, the Giants are a class organization. Sure, the owner's daughter participated in a threesome on Nip/Tuck, but other than that, pure class. So you almost feel that the Giants will be willing to let Eli continue to suck, while holding on to their principles and letting Burress rot.
