And now Eli Manning has sacrificed some money to keep his team together.

NFL.com news: Report: Eli Manning re-does contract, saves Giants $6.75 million

Again, I'm really not trying to beat up on Drew. He's my favorite player in the league; I want him on our team for as long as he can possibly play.

But over the last two days you've got Peyton Manning giving his "farewell" speech and showing his heartfelt appreciation of his team and his fans, and Eli (Two-Time Superbowl MVP) Manning taking less money to keep his team together and Drew's offer isn't good enough.

I know Drew has a lot of responsibilities: to himself, his family, and as a leader of the Union, to the other union members to get as much money as he can. And you know what? Almost any other year I'd be 100% on his side (management vs. labor and all that). But this year, he's actions are detrimental to the rest of the team.

I'm trying to give everyone involved with this contract stuff the benefit of the doubt until everything is sorted...it's just getting tougher and tougher to do that, especially since I am stuck at home doing nothing but listening to ESPN and reading NFL stories...

Okay, back to my codeine and recovery.
