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.

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.

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.

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.
