But i dont understand the hoopla surrounding the Eli benching. To me, it seems like a stealth tanking move. Geno Smith is ass, starting Geno would safely secure them a top 3 pick.
Or is it because of the consecutive games streak? Eli isnt even close to Favre's record. Glazer is even reporting that a group of former Giants players are planning to come to the game next week wearing Eli jerseys on the sideline. I understand hes a Giants legend and all, but i just dont understand the commotion.
Because "tanking", "giving young guys a chance", "avoiding major injuries", weren't the reasons stated by Mara or Macpoop. You heard things like "going a different direction", "time for a change".
If the Giants started Webb and gave Eli off, everybody would have been fine or much less sensetive. But they started Geno as if it was a way to still stay competitive (Benching Eli for Geno lol).... Geno was signed just in case Eli was injured. Webb was supposed to be the young QB to learn but still secure a tank.
It's just not a way you treat your legend QB. Having a steady for QB for 15 years straight is not something to take for granted.
Eli is still good. But he isn't like his older bro. He needs a good coach and offensive coordinator.
This team was predicted to make the playoffs. But injuries and MacSheet ruined that. And they are going to fire him now so it makes no sense. Why back up his decision to bench Eli when you were just going to fire him anyway? They really just let Maccrap ruin a legacy. And it was in no way his place to do so. He is god awful.
