Eli Manning sucks. That hurt my soul to type out but Giants fans also can’t keep pretending like the offensive line is the reason why Eli stinks. In 2018, no team has a great offensive line. That doesn’t explain his unwillingness to pass the ball into tighter windows or his inaccurate deep balls or the constant checkdowns to running backs.
As much as I love Eli, I would be a fool to not recognize that the Giants would be 2-0 this season if they had someone else behind center running the offense. Let’s find a replacement as soon as possible.
Here are 5 quarterbacks not named Eli Manning that could save the New York Giants 2018 season (Spoiler: Not Nick Foles. He is trash.):
1. Jameis Winston
If the season ends today, Ryan Fitzpatrick is the 2018 NFL MVP. He is literally carrying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on his back. They just beat the Super Bowl champs after chokeslamming the New Orleans Saints the week before. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the best QB in the NFL and no one can tell me otherwise.
The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV after an impressive second-half comeback by Patrick Mahomes—a quarterback who treats double-digit deficits the same way I treat stop signs at 1am and an even more impressive second-half meltdown by Kyle Shanahan—a coach who loves nothing more on this planet than blowing leads in the Super Bowl […] More
Which means that Jameis Winston is suddenly the best backup in the league.
Personally, I think he’s a garbage human and should be forced to become an Uber driver because I believe in ironic justice but it’s also safe to say that he has a better arm than Eli Manning and would significantly make the Giants better.
