Eli has been terrible for 2yrs and they need to see other players Eli is 37 so lets see Geno and Webb and keep it moving. All these fake people crying about it are clowns you need mobile qb's with this line and Eli is a dead duck when somebody comes 3 feet close to him.
I mean Eli had two good seasons out of his last six and his deep ball is gone and he was never accurate qb in short and intermediate passing. I mean when you are old and suck you will be put out

Its my contention that the Giants have 'held onto' Manning [he is horrible and clearly is rattled under pressure] because of the Super Bowl rings. Same thing in Baltimore (Ravens/Flacco]

He was only benched? Geez, based on the reaction on Twitter, I thought he died.

So, you mean, he can still play in the last game this season and get a proper "sendoff" standing ovation?

With Eli being 37 and definitely in decline, why would you have Geno Smith of all people as your backup? They should just go straight to Davis Webb.

Which QB will they draft is the question? They are playing Geno to tank the season.

I doubt they are tanking unless the Giants also now have an owner telling his coach who to play. McAdoo isn't going to tank, him and the GM are on the chopping block.

Webb will get time too is my understanding.

Thought Eli was very classy in talking about how he could have kept the streak going but said no just play the other guys. Makes sense. Why start if you know your gonna come out and not have a chance to see the game through? Suck or not he is a competitor like all high level athletes are.

Actually feel bad for Geno, I think he's got talent. The game when he went into Atlanta and beat them proved as much. But this Giants team has nothing at all on offense, and Geno can't possibly succeed with those pieces. It's not like he's going to earn a starting spot anywhere now anyway, but if he doesn't win some games in this opportunity, he's going to be out of the league.

McAdoo isn't going to tank, him and the GM are on the chopping block. Both probably won't be there next year.  The Giants are bad but they also have had bad luck.  Losing their top 3 receivers including one of the best in the league was a killer.  Having very little running game is on the GM.  From what I have read in the Post and Daily News, McAdoo has been an asshole through all of this.  Guess he will be a coordinator somewhere next year.

The problem for the Giants was they started off 1-5 and were a sinking ship before the Seattle game in which Beckham and several others were hurt. What went wrong up until that point is a question that needs answering. I don't think there's much to be gained by putting Webb out there with such a bad set of WRs and no running game to take the heat off of him. Geno is clearly not the answer. Just go with Eli and wind down the season. He actually was having an okay season until the receiver corps went down and has had some alright games since then. He's not to blame for the current mess, certainly not primarily.

IMO the Giants are basically 'tanking' now so they can land an Eli replacement in this year's draft

But who is tanking? The owner is prepared to fire McAdoo tomorrow because he loves Eli and hated how this was handled. So he isn't tanking. McAdoo was getting fired unless they started winning, so why would he tank for next year? Same with the GM.

Tanking has become a fan buzzword.

Well, let me ask you this.

Are they (the Giants) committed to winning this year, turning it around, etc ?


Or are they committed to losing?


Which message was sent to the locker-room?
