Geno Smith to start over Eli Manning for Giants Sunday

Geno Smith to start over Eli Manning for Giants Sunday

Interestingly enough, Warner was the last quarterback to start under center for NY before Manning's streak began, so it is no surprise to see him come to the defense of his former teammate.

The New York Giants announced on Tuesday that two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning would be benched this week in place of former New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith. After McAdoo took over for Tom Coughlin, the Giants went 11-5 and made the playoffs a year ago.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who had started 210 straight games to begin his National Football League career, will be benched this week in favor of backup Geno Smith. Webb was never overly impressive at Texas Tech or Cal, but is a plus athlete.

When asked if he believes he's started his last game for the Giants, Manning said "I don't know". Furthermore, it is clear that the Giants issues this season went far beyond their franchise quarterback. He'll be tasked with leading the 2-9 Giants on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

Even though McAdoo did not rule out that Manning could be the quarterback next year, it will not likely be his decision to make.

"I'll be a good teammate".

"It's hard, hard day to handle this", the 36-year-old Manning admitted in comments to reporters.

It makes no sense to play Smith. "This is what it is and you got to deal with it".

With Smith at the helm, it will be the first game since 2004 that the Giants started without Manning under center.

Manning is the best Giants quarterback of all time, but he's not the unflappable force that other aging QBs have been in the face of adversity.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 draft, Manning has played his entire career with the Giants, leading NY to two Super Bowl championships (and garnering two Super Bowl MVP honors along the way).

That streak, however, fell by the wayside when making the decision this week. "We decided after our conversation this morning that we'll give Geno the ball starting at the beginning of the game". All those reasons are why I'm standing here right now.

"I don't think I played cautious early at all". However, Smith is the one who gets the nod to start over Webb while Eli heads to the bench. His 84.1 passer rating is his second-worst such mark in the last decade, and it was rumored last offseason that the 2017 season could be Manning's final one in NY. We have a chance to win these five games, and go look at the roster top to bottom.

"It's up there", Manning said.
