Two sour hearted haters who have never played a down in their lives. You don't use a HOF QB as a tackling dummy. Daniel Jones played 13 games and he wasn't better than Eli despite having better plays and more support. So when do I take the jobs of these dummies? Because I'm better! Talk about money for nothing. Eli wasn't nearly as bad as Brees. Its just because, Jones wasn't nearly as good as Bridgewater or Hill.

Praise YOU Steven-A! YOU hit it right on the bull's eyes by mentioning the emotional and drowned energy us GIANTS fans have endured not only in the last 6 or 7 seasons? But more like 13 of the 15 complete seasons that Eli Manning has played and this 16th season was no exception! It was about time the owners or the entire staff put us fans first! So thank you Steven-A for bringing up such valuable point!

Good OL? They allowed 5 sacks on Jones (sure, he needs to improve his pocket awareness), he had a fumble recovered by TB, and he had to use his legs because of the pressure. Not sure this OL is or performed as good as Max claims it to be. However, I am sure every single OLmen is excited and pumped to be playing for Jones and will work harder to protect him. Very happy Jones' first game ended up in the epic W as it was. TB shot themselves on the foot and lost that game, but to come back from that deficit and without Saquon is spectacular and makes for a great story. Very happy for Jones, and the Giants. But the OL? Average at best, imo. Bottom line: Giants don't win that game with Eli. Thank you and goodbye, Eli.

Yeah he looks good against Cincy but that was a secondary that had 4 total picks and 0 from their corners all of last year, He also looked good against Tampa and Washington but their secondaries are as bad as the Bengals. Lets see what he does against elite secondary play that has a pass rush to back it up.

God thank you. Now i can watch my Giants again. After his brother retired, it just seemed like Eli gave up. They shouldve traded him a long time ago. Ecspecially how much players move around through the league now.

If Giants really want to win, they should start using the old 2 backs A formation, they have two outstanding running backs, so many more plays can be constructed with 2 running backs, all you need is the creativeness. At all times one man is back to block, for the runner or QB. but there are so many criss-cross plays that defense will never know who has the ball, or there are more options for passing to either one & open up the running game that way. Giant plays have been mundane & boring, I am 95 yr old,& I can predict 90 % of all your plays by the simple formations that U stick with for 20 yrs or more.

Eli hasn’t been the problem. Definitely not the solution but to put the losses squarely on his is just moronic.Everyone knew this wasn’t going to be a good year. They brought Eli back to teach Jones how to be a qb in the NFL before handing him the reigns. Stephen is doing what he does best. Running off at the mouth about things he has no idea about and has never even tried.

Really, Kellerman? You thought Manning was "cooked" last year? He passed for 4200 yards while only throwing 11 interceptions with an offensive line made out of origami paper. Other quarterbacks would give their left kidney to have a season like that.

Arn Martin How about Troy Aikman. Lost all 15 of his starts in his rookie season, getting killed over and over, because he had no one around him. The last time I checked, won three Super Bowls, built a team around him, and went to Canton. Sometimes, you have to go through baptism by fire to know what you really have.

Steven A is clueless as usual. Shurmur just threw up the white flag after game 2, and quit on this season. How these players who didn't quit after a 1-7 start last year will play for this coach is a huge question mark now. How will Jones fare with teammates who may be half-assing it? This was a Ray Handley move. Smart coaches like Coughlin would have put him in November, just like he did with Eli in 2004. Shurmur will turn Jones into a bootleg and rollout machine, and he'll be lucky if he lasts a full season without injury. I hope I'm wrong.

Not really. If you get over 4,000 thats good. You only think 5,000 is good. That’s because u are on the Patrick Mahomes train.
