When did I compare Eli to myself??? I think you may have spent too much time at the Ricky Williams thread.
Brett Favre, when he signed his new deal 3 years ago, got around $20 million bonus
McNabb, 2 years ago, signed a deal with a bonus of 14 million
Carr's Bonus was 11 million
All I am saying is that how can the Giants give out a bonus that puts Eli in the same class as an all-time great, better then a Pro-Bowler and a QB that has been to the NFC Championship game 3 times, and is $10 million more than what a player who was picked at the same spot two years ago got.
