The debate over Eli Manning has been raging in New York for more than 3-1/2 years, since the day the Giants paid a hefty price to get him. Outside the Giants organization, that price will forever be a part of how he's measured. However, inside the Giants front office, they base their measurement on only one thing. "The only thing we evaluate is 'Can we win with this guy?'" Giants co-owner John Mara said Tuesday. "That's the one thing. When we talk about any player at the end of the season, the No.1 question is 'Will he help us win?' And to take it one step further, 'Can we win a championship with this guy?'" Mara declined to give his answer, or to offer an evaluation of his franchise quarterback yesterday, but the feeling inside the front office has long been that the answer is "Yes." Their feelings have not changed this year, even after watching the former No. 1 pick get outplayed by Tony Romo, a former undrafted free agent, on Sunday. -- NY Daily News

Will Giants give Eli an extension?

Giants QB Eli Manning's contract has only two years remaining (at $17.4 million), which means an extension is likely to be discussed in the near future. Romo just got a six-year, $67.5 million contract. Does anyone think Manning is worth the same? "I think it's kind of unfair for people to be overly critical of him right now," Mara said. "We lost a game. It was a big game, so people are disappointed and players are going to get criticized. But if he goes out and has a good game on Sunday and plays well the rest of the season, people will forget about it. "He's the same guy that helped us win six games in a row." -- NY Daily News

Giants are stuck with Manning
Posted: Thursday November 29, 2007 07:01AM ET

Eli Manning may not deserve it, but job security is not an issue through the 2009 season and probably beyond. The Giants are stuck. They have already invested $30.1 million in Manning, plus all the draft picks they traded for him. And even if they were willing to write that off as a costly mistake, there is no place to turn to upgrade the position.
