New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo did not precisely give Eli Manning a vote of confidence throughout Monday’s press convention.

McAdoo spoke about growing gamers for the longer term after Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams, which dropped the Giants to 1-7 on the yr. “That consists of all people,” he stated, per Shaun Morash of The DA Show, addressing the QB place.
Manning has produced an 85.four quarterback ranking this season, which is true consistent with his profession mark of 83.eight. Considering the accidents at receiver and struggles with the offensive line, he is clearly not the one concern with the inconsistent offense.
Then once more, he ranks 22nd within the league this season with a 42.6 Total QBR.
Backup quarterback Geno Smith noticed his first motion of the yr Sunday. He threw two incomplete pbades in a three-and-out earlier than kneeling on the sport’s ultimate play. However, the actual query mark is rookie Davis Webb, the third-round decide and potential future franchise quarterback, if issues go in response to plan.
Considering Manning hasn’t missed a begin since 2004 and is signed by 2019, a swap at quarterback mustn’t come frivolously. But it seems all the pieces is on the desk in what has develop into a misplaced season for the Giants.
