Coach Ben McAdoo bluntly pinned the Giants' 2016 offensive struggles on Eli Manning.
The Giants' offense was anemic in offensive-minded McAdoo's first year as head coach, finishing 25th in yards and 26th in points. McAdoo pointed to Eli's 20 turnovers and poor pre-snap decision making leading to pass-protection breakdowns, although he did not mention Manning's declining arm strength. McAdoo also said "Eli needs to do a better job of playing with fast feet, and I think he needs to sit on that back foot in the pocket." The Giants would be smart to implement more of a run-based, defensive-minded approach in Eli's final years. Mar 1 - 8:45 PM

Speaking on PFT Live, Newsday's Bob Glauber said the Giants believe Eli Manning has two or three good years left in the NFL.

It's a bold stance after Eli's play took a stark turn for the worse last season. His 6.7 yards per attempt were a near-decade low, while New York's offense finished 25th in yards per game (330.7) and 26th in points (19.4). Eli showed a dead arm on downfield throws. 36-year-old Manning's starting job isn't in danger, but the Giants need to start thinking about life after him.

GM Jerry Reese said the Giants have "started to think about who is the next quarterback" after Eli Manning.

"Eli is 36," Reese said. "So we will look into that as we move into the offseason." Reese also said Manning has entered the "back nine of his career" in his season-ending press conference. It is somewhat odd to hear a general manager be this forthcoming, but Reese is correct. The Giants need to start planning for a future without Eli.

Giants GM Jerry Reese admitted Monday that Eli Manning is "probably on the back nine of his career."

Reese said he doesn't think Eli is "ancient" for a quarterback at age 36, but the admission Manning is in decline is notable, and probably not something we'd hear from Bill Belichick describing 39-year-old Tom Brady or even Tom Telesco referring to 35-year-old Philip Rivers. The Giants built up their defense. They now need to structure their offense to move away from Eli as the centerpiece.
Jan 9 - 3:51 PM

Eli Manning completed 23-of-44 passes for 299 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Giants' Wild Card loss to Green Bay.

Eli turned it over twice -- losing a fumble and throwing a game-ending pick -- but he wasn't the Giants' problem on Sunday. Odell Beckham committed four arguable drops, and New York's vaunted defense had no answer for Aaron Rodgers' playmaking ability in and out of the pocket. Still, Manning's throws noticeably lacked zip and location over the course of the season, and he became the Giants' team weakness at age 36. Manning will be back as the starter, but GM Jerry Reese needs to consider pursuing a quarterback of the future. The Giants also need to get serious about improving their running game to help buoy the team in Eli's decline phase.
Jan 8 - 8:16 PM

Eli Manning completed 12-of-27 passes for 180 yards in the Giants' 19-10, Week 17 win over the Redskins.

The Giants had "nothing to play for," but let Manning quarterback for 60 minutes. It was another quiet statistical day for Manning, who heads into the Wild Card round having passed for 201 yards or fewer in 5-of-6 starts. The Giants will be venturing to the winner of Sunday night's Packers/Lions showdown.
Jan 1 - 7:42 PM

Coach Ben McAdoo said Eli Manning will play Week 17 against the Redskins.

Reporters pressed McAdoo, asking him how long Manning and the starters would play, but McAdoo wasn't taking the bait, and would only say that they "will play in the game." Odds are against Manning and Co. playing all four quarters, making Odell Beckham and Manning risky fantasy plays.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 02:29:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 38-of-63 passes for 356 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in Week 16 against the Eagles.

Manning racked up a season high in pass attempts with the Giants playing behind all night. One of Manning's interceptions was pick-sixed, and he threw a game-sealing INT on the final drive. Manning had thrown for under 250 yards in six straight weeks going into Thursday night. He'll be a QB2 for Week 17 against Washington.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 11:52:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 20-of-28 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' Week 15 win over the Lions.

It wasn't pretty, but Manning did enough for the Giants to win this one 17-6 in the rainy, windy conditions. Manning completed his first 11 passes of the game, including a short touchdown to Sterling Shepard from six yards out to get the scoring started. His second touchdown was a four-yarder to Odell Beckham, who made a slick one-handed catch near the goal line to give the Giants a two-score lead in the fourth quarter. Manning gets a good Week 16 matchup against the Eagles, but his 201 yards on Sunday were his most in four games. It'll be hard to trust Manning as a QB1 in fantasy championship week.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 04:26:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 17-of-28 passes for 191 yards a touchdown and an interception in the Giants' Week 14 win over the Cowboys.

It’s a step back after Manning had multiple touchdowns in five straight games. Manning had a disaster first half with two drive-killing fumbles. He managed a 61-yard touchdown to Odell Beckham to give the Giants a comeback win. Manning has thrown for under 200 yards in three straight weeks. He’s a QB2 for Week 15 against the Lions.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 11:38:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 24-of-39 passes for 195 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed once for a loss of one yard Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 17 yards. Disastrous might not be the right word for his performance, but Manning certainly wasn’t sharp on Sunday. He threw a brutal red-zone interception in the first half and was picked again on a desperation heave that landed nowhere near his desired target. Manning had a chance to get New York back in the game on a fourth-and-one opportunity from the three-yard line, but couldn’t connect with Will Tye in the end zone. He scored his first touchdown on a screen to Rashad Jennings and added to his tally with a one-yard strike to Sterling Shepard. That touchdown occurred with just 26 seconds remaining. Manning will be an unexciting QB2 next week against the Cowboys.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 08:12:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 15-of-27 passes for 194 yards and three touchdowns in the Giants' 27-13, Week 12 win over the Browns.

Manning wasn't sharp in this one, missing Odell Beckham on a number of wide-open deep throws. Against any other team, today probably would have been a loss. It was against the Browns, however, and Manning ended up finding Beckham on enough plays to eke out a road win. Manning will face a stiffer, but far from foreboding, Week 13 road test in the Steelers.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 04:51:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 21-of-36 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 22-16, Week 11 win over the Bears.

It was quite the uninspiring day against a banged up defense, though high winds arguably played a part. Fantasy owners will take the two scores, something Manning has now managed in three straight starts. He was lucky to escape without a pick, tossing a few outright ducks. Manning has been lacking ceiling this season, but could discover it on the road against the Browns next Sunday.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 04:45:00 PM

The game total on Bears-Giants has dropped by 4 1/2 points.

The game opened at 45 1/2. Due to severe wind at MetLife Stadium, the game has been bet heavily to the under, and the total now stands at 41 points. High winds are not going to eliminate scoring, but they could make it much more difficult on vertical passes and especially for kickers. It really should go without saying that kickers need to be avoided in these types of games.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 10:46:00 AM

Eli Manning completed 28-of-44 passes for 240 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Giants' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Manning fired off a ton of passes, but his 5.5 YPA was his second-lowest mark of the season. Manning opened the game white-hot, completing 6-of-6 passes on the opening drive and finishing it off with a touchdown to rookie TE Jerell Adams. His other two scores were a 10-yard hookup with Odell Beckham on a great double-move, and then a three-yard strike to Streling Shepard on 4th-and-goal early in the fourth quarter on a gutsy call by coach Ben McAdoo. The score gave the Giants a 21-20 lead, and proved to be the winning touchdown. Manning's interceptions were a late throw to the outside and then a terrible deep ball into triple-coverage to Tavarres King. Manning will be worth streaming consideration Week 11 at home against the Bears.
