  • What if Eli was never traded for Rivers?

    Simple thread title, what if the Chargers kept Eli Manning (who agreed to play there), and the Giants took Rivers?

    There would be a divisional matchup between brothers year in and year out now that Peyton is in Denver. Would the Giants have won as many superbowls with Rivers as Eli? More superbowls?

    Would the Chargers have been worse or better?

    Peyton wouldn't be a Bronco. Eli would be worse. The Chargers would be worse. The Giants would be better.

      Giants weren't drafting Rivers without that trade. Roethlisberger would have been a Giant, and Rivers would have been a Steeler.

        And Peyton Manning would have gone to the NFC. I dont think the NFL would recover from the near orgasmic manning bowl games if they were twice a year.

                Eli or Ben. Wouldn't have made a difference for the Chargers. Norv wasn't going to win a ring anyway.

                  What if you were born a girl instead of a guy?

                  You can't dial the clock back like that and try to figure out what would be. Millions of things could be different then they are today.

                    I really don't think Manning staying in the AFC had as much to do with avoiding his kid-brother's conference as it did the teams he liked.

                        What if monkeys had wings?
                        What if magnets didnt work?
                        What if people were clear?
                        What if Hitler didnt slow his advance into France and instead crushed the evacuation of Dunkirk?
                        What if the Japanese did not attack Pearl Harbor and went north into Russia instead?
                        What if Henry VIII did not divorce Catherine?
                        What if God WAS one of us?
                        Just a slob like all of us? Just a stranger on the bus, trying to make His way home?

                          People also forget how the Chargers raped the Giants in that trade. Loads of picks to the Chargers that helped them greatly.
                          Eli would've sat for what, 2 years was it? I think that would've helped him tremendously and he probably would be a lot better today than he is.

                            Manning never would have come to Denver if Eli was in San Diego.

                              i doubt Eli would still be in SD. NYC gave the Chuggers lots of compensation that kept the chuggers stocked with developing talent for 4-6 years. Without that surge, we probably would of never known the greatest 8-8 team of all time.
