Eli Manning completed 35-of-47 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.
The Giants have enough weaponry to elevate Eli in theory, and they nearly executed against Philly. Using an exceptionally fast, up-tempo offense with a short passing game designed for Manning to get rid of the ball quickly, the Giants moved the ball much better than they did in Weeks 1-2, and nearly pulled the upset only to lose on a last-second kick. Manning gets a better matchup in Week 4 against the Bucs. We remain skeptical of him, but he still offers fringe QB1 streamer potential versus vulnerable pass defenses. And Tampa Bay qualifies.

Eli Manning completed 22-of-32 passes for 239 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

The Giants were terrible on offense much of the night, with Manning getting sacked five times and missing a couple throws. He simply doesn't get much time to throw behind this dreadful offensive line, and his receivers hurt him with a couple drops. Manning still looks close to donezo at 36 years old. The Giants have so many flaws on offense, leaving Manning as a low-end QB2 for the foreseeable future. Manning is likely to get pummeled Week 3 at the Eagles.
Sep 18 - 11:37 PM

Eli Manning completed 28-of-37 passes for 217 yards with an interception in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Manning looked completely lost playing without Odell Beckham, leading the Giants to six punts and a field goal. Nine of his completions were checkdowns to Shane Vereen, with just two of his passes going over 20 yards. Manning was sacked three times and faced constant pressures. Even with Beckham likely to return, Manning should be avoided for a Week 2 matchup with Detroit.
Sep 10 - 11:42 PM

Eli Manning completed 7-of-14 passes for 121 yards and an interception in the Giants' third preseason game.

Manning's interception came trying to a force pass on the opening drive. He didn't look sharp, but was playing without Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall. Manning has potential to improve on his 2016 with a better supporting cast. He's locked in as a QB2.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Giants co-owner John Mara said Eli Manning has "a lot of years left in him."

It's the exact opposite of what Mara and most Giants brass were saying earlier this offseason. In March, Mara said he was open to drafting Manning's successor. The G-Men ended up settling on third-round question mark Davis Webb. Headed into his age-36 campaign, Manning simply wasn't good enough in 2016. Coach Ben McAdoo said as much in March. The G-Men need a rebound.
Jun 22 - 1:14 PM

The Cowboys will host the Giants in the first Sunday night game of the season on Sept. 10.

The schedule is slowly leaking ahead of Thursday night's official reveal. According to the Washington Post, the Giants will also travel to Washington D.C. for the Thanksgiving primetime game. The Patriots are playing in the official opening game of the season on Thursday Sept. 7, though their opponent has yet to be revealed. It's believed to be the Chiefs.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan doesn't expect the Giants to address quarterback early in the draft.

The Giants have talked about drafting a successor to Eli Manning, but it's unlikely Mitchell Trubisky or Deshaun Watson would fall to them at the 23rd pick. Coach Ben McAdoo was present for Pat Mahomes' Pro Day as well. Raanan expects the Giants draft a quarterback, though it will probably happen on Day 2. Josh Dobbs, Jerod Evans and Nathan Peterman could be available in that range.

The Giants are open to drafting Eli Manning's successor this year.

"I think we have to start thinking about it," co-owner John Mara said. "I think you always have to look at drafting a quarterback where you can." GM Jerry Reese attended UNC QB Mitch Trubisky's Pro Day, while coach Ben McAdoo has blamed the Giants' 2016 offensive woes on Manning. Quarterback won't be the most likely selection when the Giants are on the clock at No. 23, but they clearly aren't ruling it out. 2017 will be Manning's age-36 season.

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.

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.
Feb 21 - 2:35 PM

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.
