Really, So Much For That San Diego Eli Manning Trade
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a blog about what has now become a clear mistake by AJ Smith in his recruiting for San Diego. Like is always the case with professional sports, you have objective opinions and opinions of fans. My final sentence of the blog:
The ultimate smack to AJ Smith’s Eli deal would be for the Giants to win the Super Bowl.
Start writing? I’ll keep writing. This Sunday has shown once again that AJ Smith did a fair job with the hand he was dealt with Eli Manning not wanting to go to San Diego but got the short end of the stick. The top bid that NY put for Eli has shown to have been worth it for them, as he has now driven them to Super Bowl immortality. There is no 19-0, and New England will become just the second Super Bowl losing team anyone remembers (the other team being the 4 consecutive Super Bowl loser Buffalo Bills, who were back officed by AJ Smith, BTW).
Would Eli have been worth San Diego keeping? Absolutely not. AJ Smith would not have surrounded Eli Manning with an incredible defense and offensive players. Oh, and Eli ends up as Super Bowl 42 MVP.
This might just make the Patriots the only loser from Boston, since the Red Sox have already won, the Celtics are likely future champions, and Mitt Romney will possibly be on ballots in November.
