What Happened to the New York Football Giants?

"I love to play quarterback and love playing quarterback for the New York Giants", Manning said, via quotes distributed by the team.

"I want to be the starting quarterback, I want to be out there, and I just want to make sure that he knew that", Manning said.

Manning was controversially demoted last weekend, ending his run of 210 consecutive regular-season starts, as McAdoo opted to select Geno Smith against the Oakland Raiders.

Even last week when then-head coach Ben McAdoo made the decision to go with Smith over Manning, he gave no indication of Webb receiving significant game snaps any time soon.

The benching of Manning last week upset the quarterback and angered Giants fans.

Webb said he will continue to do what he has always done since joining the team. I wasn't mad at Jerry Reese. The new regime will be drafting a new franchise quarterback.

Rebuild with Odell Beckham Jr. and you could be in for the long, slow build back to the top. But the kid needs to play. But benching Eli - who had previously started 210 consecutive games for the Giants, the second-most of anyone in the National Football League - was the straw that broke the camel's back, it seems. Spagnuolo added he was impressed with Smith's professionalism in handling the situation.

An evacuation center has been established in the multipurpose room at Valencia High School (27801 Dickason Drive). The fire is now estimated at 50,500 acres and is being pushed by strong east winds.

"I'll take the under on that if Eli comes back", Gruden said. But he didn't anticipate the strong, emotional reactions from both Manning and the Giant fan base. Although it was a tough decision to make, it was the right decision.

Manning said he's not angry but he was unhappy and it will take more than going back to Manning against Dallas to win back the trust of the faithful mortified by the Giants' poor judgment and lack of awareness in this situation.

"I have a great deal of respect for Geno Smith in the way he reacted", Spagnuolo said. There will be no boos Sunday for Eli Manning. The offense scored 17 points directed by Smith in Oakland. As I have said many times, they are men of talent, and I believe in their integrity and character. The result? "I (swept) him".

"I will give it every ounce of energy I have", Spagnuolo said. "I went [Monday]. I did speak with Coach Spagnuolo for a little bit. He's still a rookie; I'm still a vet". While he didn't get to finish out his career on his terms; he was cut by the Bears this year after signing with them following his release from the Giants earlier in the year. The Daily News has been banging the drum since the bye week for Webb to dress and play, and Mara clearly felt the same way.

McAdoo was objectively bad at his job.

Manning indicated that he might have agreed to the plan if he was told he could remain in the game if he had been playing well and the team was winning.

Better late than never but this should have happened a long time ago. So they're not doing the right thing. These are the 2017 Giants, though.
