Eli Manning completed 10-of-28 passes for 132 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Giants' Week 17 win over the Redskins.
It is a fittingly disappointing end to a disappointing season for the two-time Super Bowl MVP. Manning failed to top 3,500 yards for the first time since 2008 while tossing fewer than 20 touchdowns for just the third time in his career – one of those was a rookie season in which he played only nine games. Even worse, Manning’s consecutive start streak ended at 210 games when the Giants uselessly started Geno Smith in Week 13. In better news for him, Manning’s future in New York looks much more secure with new GM Dave Gettleman at the helm, and it would be tough for the Giants to find a worse coach than Ben McAdoo this offseason. That plus the healthy return of Odell Beckham should help Manning bounce back, but the 37-year-old (on January 3) is clearly nearing the end. The Giants need to start planning for the future at quarterback. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 04:45:00 PM

Giants GM Dave Gettleman said he's "moving forward" with the idea Eli Manning will return as the starter next season.

"If what I saw against Philadelpiha is not a mirage — and I don't believe it was — then we'll just keep moving." Gettleman's comments fall in line with the Giants handling of Manning since Ben McAdoo's firing. Manning isn't a lock to be back in 2018, but his contract ($12.4M in dead money) and ownership support suggest he'll remain in New York. The Giants need to make a decision on Manning in early March if they want to avoid paying his $5 million roster bonus.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo plans on Eli Manning taking "every snap" in Week 17.

Speaking about getting third-round rookie Davis Webb some playing time so the team could evaluate his progress, Spags responded "we feel like we know." Burned by the bitter criticism of benching Manning for Geno Smith, the Giants have responded by "doing right" by Manning down the stretch of what could be his final season in New York. We would take Spags at his word that Manning will start and finish against the Redskins.

Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo said Eli Manning will start Week 17.

"Eli will start, and then we'll probably take it bit by bit," Spagnuolo said. "We just take it and see how it goes." The comments suggest that while Manning will start, Davis Webb could see some snaps as well. At this point, it makes sense for the Giants to see what Webb can do.

Eli Manning completed 27-of-45 passes for 263 yards and two interceptions in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

He also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. It was a total meltdown from Manning coming off one of his better games. Manning didn't have much of a supporting cast with Evan Engram leaving early, but this was a concerning performance for his status with the Giants. New York could take a look at Davis Webb in Week 17.

Eli Manning completed 37-of-57 passes for 434 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Eagles.

Eli showed he has something left in the tank in a shocking back-and-forth effort that shot out from the get go. The Giants built a 20-7 lead only for their defense to blow it in a 34-29 defeat. Nevertheless, it was a solid outing for Eli to put on tape as he likely heads to the free agent market in 2018, although that hasn't yet been decided. Despite Sunday's superb outing, Manning will be a mere two-quarterback-league play in Week 16 at Arizona.

Giants owner John Mara wants Eli Manning to return in 2018.

Manning was shaping up as a lock to be released, but his status has changed with Ben McAdoo gone. Even with New York in position for a top-five pick, it's possible they give Manning another year with an improved supporting cast. There should be more clarity with the Giants expected to interview general manager candidates next week. Manning has two years and $22 million guaranteed remaining on his deal.

Eli Manning will remain the Giants' starting quarterback for Week 15.

Davis Webb might get a look at some point, but interim coach Steve Spagnuolo has given no indication of when that might be. There are only three games remaining. Manning will be off the Week 15 streaming radar against the Eagles.

Eli Manning completed 31-of-46 passes for 228 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions Sunday in the Giants’ Week 14 loss to the Cowboys.

Manning wasn’t sacked in the loss. Returning from a controversial one-game benching, Manning was greeted with a standing ovation when he entered the huddle for the first time. Manning got off to a hot start by completing five-of-six passes for 32 yards on New York’s opening drive, but obviously it didn’t last. His lone touchdown came late in the first half on a one-yard strike to tight end Rhett Ellison while his longest gain came on a 35-yard pass to Evan Engram against an all-out blitz. Both of his interceptions were desperation heaves late in the fourth quarter. Manning and the 2-11 Giants head to Arizona to face the Cardinals in Week 15.

Eli Manning will be the Giants' starting quarterback for Week 14 against the Cowboys.

What a long, strange 2017 it's been. Manning had his streak of 210 consecutive starts snapped in Week 13 so Geno Smith could generate 212 yards against the Raiders' nonexistent defense in a loss. If the G-Men were going to go to the trouble of benching their shell-of-his-former-self franchise quarterback, it at least should have been for third-rounder Davis Webb. As it is, Manning now seems likely to finish out the year under center before heading elsewhere in 2018. He will be a bottom-barrel QB2 against the Cowboys.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With CB Orlando Scandrick expected to miss some time, Sterling Shepard should have a favorable matchup in the slot. He averaged 11 targets in the two games he played with Manning as the WR1 and despite missing time, he remains the team leader in red zone targets (9). He appears to be a nice deal at $5.3k on DraftKings.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports Eli Manning is expected to get back his starting job following the firing of Ben McAdoo.

This is not a surprise since the gross mishandling of Eli's benching contributed to McAdoo's and GM Jerry Reese's ouster. Considering the hit ownership took following his benching, it is likely Manning will keep the job the rest of the season. That said, his future with the Giants remains murky.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said "don't be surprised" if Eli Manning takes back over the starting job following the firing of Ben McAdoo.

Considering how poorly it went over, it makes sense for the Giants to at least act like benching Eli was McAdoo's and former GM Jerry Reese's brainchild, and the best way to prove it is by putting Manning back under center to face the Cowboys this Sunday. If he does get the nod, Manning will have some value in two-quarterback formats.

Eli Manning says he is planning to play in 2018.

"I plan on playing next year," was Manning's exact quote after the Giants' loss in Oakland. NFL Network reported Sunday morning that Manning was considering retirement. We would believe Manning on this one. His situation could be similar to Jay Cutler's from last offseason. If his free agency isn't hot off the bat, perhaps he'll hang 'em up. Manning will probably generate more interest than Cutler did.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eli Manning is considering retirement.

Manning is entering his age-37 season and may decide to call it quits after his Giants fallout. He hasn't ruled out playing for another team in 2018, with Jacksonville and EVP Tom Coughlin a potential fit. Manning has two years and $22 million guaranteed remaining on his deal, so the Giants will need to trade him or eat $6.2 million in dead money. There should be a decision on Manning's future before he's due a $5M roster bonus in early March.

The Giants have benched Eli Manning for Week 13.

Stunningly, hilariously, bafflingly, they are turning to Geno Smith. Third-rounder Davis Webb will also be given playing time down the stretch of the Giants' lost season. The team apparently gave Manning the option of starting Sunday's game before giving away to Smith, but he declined. Manning has made 210 consecutive starts, the second longest streak in NFL history behind only Brett Favre's 297. The streak started on Nov. 21, 2004. We can't pretend Manning has been great this season, but he's also been the least of the Giants' massive problems. The defense has regressed, the receiver corps has been hollowed out by injury and the running game is close to nonexistent. The offensive line, and roster in general, is in shambles. Manning probably deserved the right to play out the season. It's also embarrassing Manning has been benched for Smith, a proven failed option at quarterback. Webb at least offers unknown, theoretical upside. If Manning plays in 2018, it will be elsewhere.
