Giants Bench Eli Manning; Daniel Jones to Start -- MERGED

Recommended Posts

Is it horrible to root against the kid?  I think not.  Hope he's a dumpster fire.

If he comes out and lights it up, this place will be apocalyptic.

He's going to struggle but that's part of starting on a bad team.  Darnold went through it last year.  I can only imagine we will see the same from Jones.

And after all, that’s what’s really important

It's amazing. Joe and Evan were waxing into the Jets. All the sudden this news comes out and no mention of the Jets again.

Just shows how big the Giants are

Why? 

The smugness of jeering the Jints for passing on Darnold just to reach for Jones a year later will bruise a lot of e-egos.

I wonder what it would take to trade for Eli

Would think Saints may make a call to Gettleman.

Darn it, I was hoping Eli would play all year so he'd be well under .500 as a career starting QB.

A bucket of balls? That may be too high.

Eli isn't the future for the Giants.  They're not going anywhere so might as well see what the kid has.

smart move.

This kid is real good.  Him and barkley in the backfield for the next 10 years is scary.

They will take a big time reciever at the top of the draft next year and have their own triplets.

Gettleman is killing this rebuild.  Great job!!!

WTF are you talking about... the Defense played great the last two weeks... if you are talking about the Pats defense... then you are obviously just trolling

Eli went out with a whimper 

Macadoo year 1 got the Giants to the playoffs.  His team decides to not take it seriously and party in miami b4 the game. They lose.  Not his fault.

The next year, he sees eli is washed up and is ready to move on so he benches him.  NYC revolts against the man forcing him to play that crap qb and his team cant win a game.

He then gets fired for his team sucking which is a direct result of him being forced to play eli.

Talk about getting the shaft.

They made the playoffs in 2016 thanks to the D and Beckham.  Even with beckham he led that O to a putrid 17 PPG.

 

The team has sucked mostly because of Eli, his poor play got 2 HCs fired and a GM.  He's led them to missing the playoffs 8 of 10 years.

 

He should have been let go 4 years ago, the Giants went above and beyond to bow down to this never great player.  

 

You are 100% correct on McAdoo

Regardless of who should have....Manning is listed as a 2 time Super Bowl MVP. 

More importantly, he was/is a real stand up guy that always took the high road and represented the Giants in a positive manner.  Even though he can't be happy with the benching he will help Jones as much as possible to succeed.  He really is one of the good guys in all of professional sports.

I still do not understand why they brought back Eli in the first place. 

 

I think they were surprised how good Jones looked in the preseason. they probably thought Eli would have to play deep into the season before even considering a switch. 

Just as likely though, the team and Eli looked very bad the first two weeks, and Shurmur and DG were either looking to change the narrative, or were feeling this would call off the dogs...

But, to me, if you are taking a QB at #6 overall, you don't need Eli on the team anymore. They took a cap hit to bring back his inflated salary. 

They could have had a cheaper veteran mentor Jones if they didn't think he was ready to start the season.

Yeah I get what you're saying, and I agree with you. I was just throwing out ideas.

The Giants, Mara especially, seem to have a lot of respect for Eli. Maybe they just didn't want to embarrass him by cutting him, I don't know. Personally I think they should've moved on when McAdoo wanted to.
