Should’ve done it for Webb. He probably sucks but we knew Geno sucked.


Still makes no sense that they didn't at least try to get him a few snaps in week 17


Maybe he's bad.

Like, really bad.

Horrendously, hopelessly bad.

Christian Hackenberg bad.


I refuse to believe there are two professionals as bad at football as Christian Hackenburg

White QBs like Eli and Bradford get every opportunity to fail time and again


I doubt it is about race here. Eli means a ton to the Giants for what he has done in his career, and they just stubbornly refuse to let go one of their best 'Legends'. McAdoo got fired because the organization is not ready to move on from the Eli Manning era yet.

McAdoo was also a smug a****** about it and instead of just doing what he thought could improve a (clearly underperforming) team, he hedged his bets around the idea that his wisdom would be the solution for the floundering franchise

The moment he started greasing his hair like some 80s movie villain was the instant his days became numbered

Here’s what should have happened, the owner should have stepped in and fired Mcadoo on the spot last year for even suggesting benching Eli. Then Eli should have been quietly traded/released during the off-season.

Giants could have moved on and not humiliated Eli in the process.

Yeah, snapping the games started streak that Eli had for no reason was pretty awful.

McAdoo was right all along. Benching Eli was the right decision. He also predicted Mahomes would be a stud/future MVP. Guy had a bad haircut and wore ill-fitting suits but he was a sharp football mind. Stupid Giants.
It's what's best for business.
