Are the New York Giants just collectively on another planet?
Despite years of film to tell us otherwise, everyone from GM Dave Gettleman to head coach Pat Shurmur to tight end Evan Engram is asserting that over-the-hill quarterback Eli Manning is still just as good as when he was leading them to Super Bowls.
They can't possibly expect us to believe this. But here we are.
Giants tight end says Eli Manning “still has it” https://t.co/teXN0NFFtA— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 3, 2019
Is Engram even watching his own team on film?
Eli never had an Aaron Rodgers arm or Drew Brees accuracy. But last year, at age 37, he couldn't have looked more different from the man who won two Super Bowls.
I feel like if you have to ask his teammates if he still has it then he probably doesnt have it...— Matthew Seufer (@mkseufer) April 3, 2019
Despite a solid crop of young quarterbacks available in the draft and a potential franchise guy in Josh Rosen on the block, the Giants seem bizarrely devoted to the declining Eli Manning. Buckle up, Giants fans. 2019 could get ROUGH.
