Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Baker Mayfield takes shot at Giants fans

In supporting Odell Beckham Jr., Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield took a swipe at Giants fans in a piece published Wednesday on ESPN.

“He’s here to work, and he wants to be surrounded by people who love him and support him and allow him to be himself,” he says. “He’s here to play in front of fans who actually care, who will actually show up to every game and pack the stadium and love him for who he is.”

Sigh. I’m not even going to comment.

Casillas didn’t like the decision to let go of Landon Collins. Like many before him, he said that whether Eli Manning can still succeed or not comes down to the ability to protect him.

Welcome to Eli Manning's last Giants stand

No matter how Gettleman tries to spin it, the Giants are in rebuilding mode with a 38-year-old quarterback. You can’t always have your cake and eat it too. This isn’t about 2019 for the Giants as much as it is about 2020. You don’t need 20/20 vision to see that Daniel Jones will be the Mann.

There will likely be little outrage this time whenever Manning is instructed to pass the torch to Chosen Jones and stand next to Shurmur on the sideline, more likely an acknowledgment that time waits for no man, or Manning.
