Let’s have the Eli Manning discussion

When should the future at QB begin for the Giants?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The question keeps coming up here in the comments and via Big Blue View social media platforms on Twitter and Facebook. Is it time for the offensively challenged 1-6 New York Giants to move past the Eli Manning era at quarterback?

The trade deadline is Oct. 31, which is before the Giants play another game. Should they listen if the Jacksonville Jaguars or another quarterback-needy team comes calling?

Should the Giants begin to find out if Davis Webb has the potential to be the heir to Eli? Should they just try to surround him with better players and ride out the time Manning has left on his contract? My $.02 is that Manning can still play well and win football games, but that he needs far more help than he currently has.

Should the Giants try to get him that help? Or, should they begin the process of moving on?

Everyone has an opinion. I share mine in the podcast above — which basically is that you can’t lay this disaster at Manning’s feet but if someone overwhelms you with an offer you have to do what’s best for the long-term good of the franchise.

Feel free to share yours.
