The Darren Sharper affect on Eli

Other than the ridiculously obvious upgrade that signing Darren Sharper as a FA (as seems like the Saints are going to allow him to test the market) would be for our secondary, I'm beginning to think that the Giants would have more to gain from signing Sharper than any other team in the league because of his affect on Eli...

I love Eli as our quarterback and don't understand the hate he gets from some people/press even after leading us to the Superbowl.  However, in the continual quest for improvement and the push from being one of the top quarterbacks in the league to joining the elite group (i.e. Brees, P Manning and Brady) does anyone else think Sharper could be a key contributor an help turn him into a real special QB?

Every time Eli has been on the opposite side of the field to Sharper the guy just seems to have his number - the 3 pick game in 2005, another Interception TD return in 2007 and despite the roughing the passer call against the Saints this year another ball that ended up in the arms of D-Sharp.

Without a doubt it would seem that there is something in Sharper's game that just throws Eli into a bit of a tailspin and I personally would love to see what advice he could give Eli in dealing with a top-flight safety and what it is about Eli's game that has given him such an advantage.

I just think that any money available should be thrown at Sharper for a short-term improvement to our secondary and the possibility of turning our quarterback and offence into the best in the game (or as near as possible!)

 

Anyone else thought the same thing?  Agree/disagree?  Am interested to see what you guys think!
