Eli Manning Makes Final Decision On Giants Future

Eli Manning made a final decision on his Giants future this week.

Manning, who is turning 39 this week, handed the starting quarterback job to Daniel Jones this past season.

Given how difficult it is for a lot of successful, Super Bowl winning quarterbacks to let go, Manning actually handled the situation with much grace.

The big question after Jones’ ascension immediately became: what does this mean for Manning’s career?

Would he consider sticking around New York and serving as a backup quarterback?

Does he want to retire?

Will he go elsewhere?

On Monday, fans got something of a partial answer.

When pressed on whether he would return as Jones’ backup, Manning admitted that serving as the team’s second quarterback was “no fun.”

Manning was then pressed on whether he would leave the Giants and become a backup for another team.

“I doubt it,” he replied.

That means the only situation where Manning sees himself going forward is either a starting role with another team or retirement.

Manning went 9-26 in his last three years with the Giants, consistently displaying a lack of accuracy and mobility that will likely deter many potential suitors.

If the only thing that interest him is truly starting, then Manning presumably has two options.

First, he could join a team with a combustible quarterback situation like the Chicago Bears and simply wait for his inevitable turn as starter.

Or he could sit on the sidelines to start 2020 and wait for injuries to come into play, sort of the way they did in 2019 for so many teams.

Either way, based on his comments on Monday, it is clear that Manning’s time with the Giants has officially come to an end.

  1. Eli should just ride off into the sunset. He has nothing left to prove. And he certainly doesn’t need the money. He will be remembered well in NY as a two-time super bowl winner.

  2. Eli is a much respected QB, and human being. Like brother Peyton, he will leave with a legacy of love and respect. There are also coaching positions and always commentator openings. I wish him luck and love.

  3. Dum Dum got 1 thing Wright he said they r a Stupid Group of People (Republicans) they will believe what i tell Them.
    Just add a little bit of HATE AN U HAV THEM.
    SAD ASS PPL.
