Giants find their replacement for Manning

Geno Smith Blasts Rex Ryan Calls Him'A Coward

They've seen a huge fall from grace after an 11-5 season a year ago and they've now benched Eli Manning for Geno Smith (who would have ever bet that sentence would be typed).

McAdoo said on Tuesday the plan was to start Manning in the matchup with the Raiders and replace him with Geno Smith for the second half.

Not being at the team's headquarters Tuesday when Manning was devastated by the decision topped the list.

"You just feel like the guy has earned the opportunity, if they are deciding in fact to go in the other direction, you feel like he's earned the opportunity to finish it off, finish off these last five weeks", Rivers said. "I don't think a lot of the supporting things that were put in place before the season were good for him", Strahan told NFL Network.

It's an end of an era in NY.

Strahan also added that he didn't feel like the Giants did enough to help Manning succeed on the field this year. Wheeler struggled in his second career start, allowing Ryan Kerrigan to sack Manning twice and Mack will surely be a mismatch for the undrafted rookie.

"I didn't want him to go out like this". "He doesn't want the streak to be tarnished by just getting in for a few series".

Reese had already spoken to McAdoo about the same thing and the second-year coach decided to make the move Tuesday, after the Giants (2-9) returned from an extended Thanksgiving weekend break.

The decision was met with major disapproval by fans and former Giants players, which Mara expected, but not to the degree it happened. "I don't think there's any player - current or former - who think this is right".

I have always thought there is something to be said for a person showing loyalty, whether it be in a marriage, in a friendship, in a teammate or as an employee.

Mara insisted the move does not end Manning's career with the Giants, adding it was not time to write his obituary.
