If the reports that he's going back to being the starting QB are true, man what a crappy way of having your streak end and then restarted.

 

 

Giants screwed up bad. No reason with 5 games left to sit the only face of the franchise who is healthy and can play when you have a losing record that is not his fault. Fans are not paying high ticket prices to see the practice squad play for 5 games

I think it's worse that they are backtracking now.  See the backups if that's really why they benched Eli.

Basically by doing this they are admitting their backups stink and really had no reason to bench Eli.

Most likely they are using their high draft pick for a QB, so Eli's time on this team is limited.

Bad management on the Giants all around.

Looks like Mara signed off and was too busy to follow up with McAdoo. I still don't understand what McAdoo thought he was going to accomplish though. Mara was under the impression they were going to let Eli play until the game was out of hand and then they would bring in Webb to see what they have in him. McAdoo went a completely different and idiotic route and wanted to only play Eli to start the game for the streak.

 

Mara still should have nixed this last week after the PR backlash and not ended Manning's streak. The way it played out and was handled by McAdoo and Reese though made it even easier for Mara/Tisch to fire them.

Eli played his cards perfectly didn't he though?  He was offered to start games then be yanked in the middle of games and he declined.  I wonder if the outcome may have been different for McAdoo (made he makes it to the end of the season as HC?) if Eli had accepted his offer.

A nice reminder of the fact that whatever HC/OC is out there, there's Good Eli and Bad Eli, and right now, there's not a lot of Good Eli to go round.

Gomer is done. He sees a pass rush that's not there.

Eli isn’t the problem....
