Since nothing important happened for the New York Giants on Monday, headlines are hard to come by. Seriously, though, in the wake of the Monday Massacre that saw coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese ousted let’s see what others are saying about the developments in East Rutherford.

Brett Favre: Eli Manning will play elsewhere in 2018 |

“It’s doable to move,” Favre said, “and it’s doable to play at a high level. I found it reinvigorating, honestly. For Eli, maybe it’s gotten a little stale in New York—I don’t know. I do know, or at least I think, that he will want to play for the Giants again. And he seems like he’s really healthy, and he’s in a place he can play a few more years. Wherever it is, I can tell him he can be great somewhere else too. You can love another team too. I did.”

Favre’s gut feeling: “I think it’ll be somewhere else for Eli.”
