It’s been an incredible run for Eli Manning as the Giants starting quarterback, but it seems clear that the management team is ready to move on from the 2-time Super Bowl champion and they decided now is the time to tell Eli he’d be splitting time with Geno Smith. Eli pretty much told the Giants he’d rather ride the bench.
And here we are. That means we won’t get Eli vs. the Eagles in Philly one more time. That means we won’t get Eli one more time at home against the Cowboys. Or a New Year’s Eve finale against the Giants.
It’s all so much that Eli couldn’t contain his emotions. It’s hard news to hear for a 36-year-old legend that he’s being replaced by Geno Smith.
And the BDs agree.
