Time It Took To Amass 7 Picks?
Winner 2 games (so, 2 days)
April 25-27 (so, 3 days)
Impact on team success?
Current Giants record is 5-9.
Winner Current record is 10-4.
Financial impact of Picks?
Cost a Seattle car dealership $420,000 (not to mention the financial impact of the Giants missing the playoffs).
Winner They’re doing just fine.
Total Picks in 2013?
Winner 25…so far. Still time in the season.
7 (not including picks traded away).
Impact on 2014 team?
Winner Much as I hate to say it, the Giants will bounce back, and this lousy record will give them a decent position in the 2014 draft.
They’ll be fine, as always.

The Winner Is

Winner Eli Manning
3 out of 5

So there you have it. For once – ONCE – Eli Manning ekes out a victory, in spite of his inability to throw to his own receivers, 3-2. Nice job, Eli. You're the worst Manning.
