Giants news, 1/6: It’s all Eli Manning, quarterbacks, all the time

New, comments

Let’s check up on some Sunday morning reading

NFL: New York Giants at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Your Giants headlines for this Sunday begin pretty much where every day is going to begin until we have a firm decision on what the Giants will do at quarterback. It begins with Eli Manning.

If Eli Manning’s New York Giants run is over, he leaves an unforgettable mark | NY Post

Yes, he does. As I keep reminding everyone, whether moving on from Manning is the right move or not it doesn’t automatically mean a new franchise quarterback will be in place. In took the Giants 11 seasons and lots of swings and misses to get from Phil Simms to Manning. Let’s hope it doesn’t take that long this time around.

You will read a ton about quarterbacks in the upcoming draft. This is a good place to start. It comes down to this — will the Giants conclude that Dwayne Haskins or Daniel Jones is a franchise quarterback, and will they be willing to pay the price to acquire one of them if they do?

Best guess here is that Haskins declares for the draft early this week, and that #GiantsTwitter will then go into a complete frenzy.


Now, let’s move on to some of the day’s other headlines

All the areas Dave Gettleman needs to address to fix Giants | New York Post

There is a lot of work to be done. This doesn’t lay out specific players, just general areas that need to be dealt with.

Dave Gettleman, Giants must fix broken evaluation process ahead of pivotal offseason | nj.com

Valentine’s View: I’m going to comment on these last two headlines together. There are some in the media who seem to want to criticize Gettleman for anything and everything. Regardless of the reality.

Gettleman never said the defense was solely to blame for the Giants’ issues in 2018, as the Daily News would have you believe. The defense is, though, a problem — a major one — and the Giants recognize that. They also know the offensive line needs to be better and that they have a quarterback situation — short- and long-term — to address.

As well, the idea that the organization’s evaluation process is “broken” because they made a couple of mistakes is silly. Whatever the evaluation process is it seemed to work pretty well for a talented draft class. The overly generous contracts given to Jonathan Stewart and Patrick Omameh were mistakes. Period. That doesn’t mean a team’s process is broken. It means they made a wrong choice. I prefer to give the Giants credit for admitting their mistakes and quickly moving on from players like Omameh and Ereck Flowers. That is something the previous regime would never do.
