Nothing (except for Saquon Barkley) seems to be going right for the Giants these days. With Eli not being able to throw the ball beyond the line of scrimmage and the defense having more holes than a block of Swiss cheese, Giants fans are furious -- although not as furious as head coach Pat Shurmur.

Clearly, the Giants need to move on from Manning.
When a head coach is as angry with his quarterback as Shurmur appears to be in this video, something needs to be done. In his 15th season Manning has clearly fallen off of the cliff, and the Giants are paying for it.

Whether it be via the draft, free agency, or perhaps someone already in the organization, the Giants have to replace the two time Super Bowl champion if they want to have any hope of contending in the near future.
With such offensive talent as Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram, it's a true shame that a roster this good is being wasted by a guy like Manning, making the anger of both fans and Shurmur very understandable.
