Poll results: Voters think Giants made correct Eli Manning decision

Did the New York Giants make the right decision by sticking with Eli Manning as the team’s starting quarterback for 2019?

Simple question, but one that evokes strong feelings on both sides. We asked that question to our ‘FanPulse’ participants, and the lopsided result is perhaps surprising as an overwhelming 72.13 percent of voters said “yes” the Giants did the right thing. That meant only 27.87 percent voted “no.”

When he plays in a game this season, the 38-year-old will become the first player to spend 16 seasons with the Giants.

Co-owner John Mara, coach Pat Shurmur and GM Dave Gettleman have all expressed a desire to get a young heir apparent on the roster for next season to learn by Manning’s side. Whether the Giants are going to be able to do that in a quarterback class that isn’t that strong remains to be seen.
