I don't know about that, JP. Eric twice sat out for the entire year and the Lindroses exiled themselves from three different organizations. Manning's "exile" lasted all of about 18 hours from his original announcement that he wouldn't play for the Chargers and less than an hour after he officially became San Diego property - only about 8,760 hours less than Lindros.
After what Archie went through with the saints can you blame him for not wanting his son to play on a horrible team.
Nahhh...Giants are no better than San Diego. At least Eli would have been able to play in warm weather in San Diego. Coughlin is a run oriented coach and Tiki can't hold the ball...at least he would have had Ladanian for a safety valve with the Chargers. He just had his son labelled a prima donna whether he is or not. Just My opinion.
