It may appear as if all the pieces is rapidly taking a flip for the worst throughout the Giants’ group, however Eli Manning appears fairly expert at tuning out the insanity.
A day after Giants coach Ben McAdoo mentioned he wasn’t against throwing backup Davis Webb into the sport “to get a look at him,” Manning took the excessive — or publicly unaware — street.
“Didn’t hear it,” Manning mentioned of McAdoo’s remark. “My purpose is to organize each week and do my job.
“He said he’s got faith in me and keep grinding. So, that’s what we’re doing.”
Yes, the Giants’ season has been a catastrophe, however that is peculiar, contemplating Manning’s profession resume. We’re not speaking about Jeff Garcia in Cleveland right here.
Still, although, Manning is 36 years outdated. Two Super Bowl rings or not, ultimately he’ll have to get replaced. In an in any other case misplaced season, it is smart to think about the backup, chosen by the Giants within the third spherical of the 2017 draft out of Cal. Might as effectively get a have a look at the brand new man when the postseason is not in play.
Even whereas realizing this, Webb can also be retaining his rookie earmuffs on.
“Nothing (changes with the speculation),” Webb mentioned, through NJ.com. “My job is to be the best teammate that I can be, and to me, that’s helping Eli, that’s helping our receivers and our offense get touchdowns on the board and help our team win. That’s my role on the team right now.”
With indicators pointing towards his eventual debut and potential usurping of a franchise legend, Webb maintained he is an understudy who’s simply comfortable to be right here. Wise transfer, rook. At this fee, that may not final for for much longer — regardless of what number of occasions McAdoo professes his religion in Manning.
