Eli made a super bone headed decision

Geno Smith took to Twitter to demand that people apologize to Coach McAdoo for being made the scapegoat. Geno, from a lover of football, sit yo a$& down. You are not talented enough to make demands of anyone. You may be correct but that ainít the mouthpiece to say it.
And he's not correct, so there's that, too.

I can actually defend the first one in a sense: Yes, there are no timeouts, but you are basically at the goal line, and figure you may catch the Falcons off guard; they probably aren't expecting a QB sneak, especially a QB sneak from what very well could be the least athletic QB in the league.

The second one however.....what the fudge was Eli thinking?? You got one shot and it went nowhere throw the damn ball!!

I can agree with that...but, did Shurmur call these? I cannot imagine he did...

I was expecting Eli to quickly get everyone to the line and spike it to stop the clock, since they had no timeouts. They would have obviously lost a down but that would have still left them with 2 downs to get it in the end-zone. Just as important, it would have allowed them some time to huddle up and pick the right play to try to get it in the end-zone.

Instead, they will end up needing to use their 1st rounder in 2019 on a new QB and pray that he develops quickly. If he doesn't, then a lot of talented young guys on offense will be wasting years of their prime.
Why don't they give the opportunity to a QB already on the team like Kyle Lauletta, the rookie out of Richmond? At 1-6 clearly they're not headed in the right direction and instead of watching the Manning nightmare continue week in/week out work on someone already there who's riding the bench and save several million dollars on a free agent contract that might not work out.

The Giants have traded Snacks Harrison to the Lions for a 5th round pick. In addition to Eli Apple being dealt to the Saints, Janorus Jenkins is also been brought up in trade talks.

For the Giants fans - what would be your preferred approach at QB going into 2019: would you prefer to either trade for a current starting QB who is on the outs with his team (Derek Carr), sign a youngish QB who has some experience but still some theoretical upside (Teddy Bridgewater) or use a high 1st round pick in the 2019 draft to draft a rookie QB?

Not a Giants fan but Iíll answer. The Giants philosophy by the moves theyíve made is to win now. The fan base is not going to be content to go through a full rebuild with probably two bad seasons in a row now. I would try to target Teddy Bridgewater if he is available. He is competent enough to be an upgrade over current day Eli. He is mobile enough to survive a bad O-Line. And he wonít be that expensive. The Giants would have the best chance of competing immeadiately with Bridgewater.

I think it is a firesale similar to what the Raiders are doing but Snacks for a 5th seems cheap. Having to play him twice a year he was an absolute immovable force in the middle.
