Manning, after all, had his string of 210 straight begins — second-longest of all-time for quarterbacks — snapped final week when McAdoo didn’t play him in opposition to the Oakland Raiders. Instead, Geno Smith began.
This actually appears like the fitting factor to do, particularly with the Giants at house on Sunday. It may assist easy ruffled emotions within the fan base and permit considerably of a celebration of Manning’s accomplishments with the franchise.
It is honest, nonetheless, to surprise how lengthy this tenure will final. With a possible prime 5 decide within the 2018 NFL Draft and rookie third-round decide Davis Webb already on the roster it wont be a shock if the Giants select to get an prolonged have a look at Webb over the ultimate couple of video games.
Eli Manning beginning vs. Dallas is the headline, however making Davis Webb the QB2 would be the extra vital transfer in the direction of the long run. I am listening to the Giants are nonetheless per week away from that eventuality. Expect extra reps for the rook this week, although.

Even with the hirings of a brand new coach and GM who will need to make their very own choices on the horizon, giving Webb the chance to get some sport expertise and put some work on movie can’t be checked out as a foul thought.
