Does McAdoo actually make it to Sunday?

McAdoo may in fact be gone after the season but he didn't make this decision without the blessing of Mara and Reese....

Despite the fact that Eli ruined the Pat's perfect season in 07 I always respected him and liked him better than his brother..

Eli I think always had more class, never threw his team mates or coaches under the bus (looking at you Peyton) and just seems like a genuinely GOOD GUY...

He handled this benching with that same class and better than most guys of his stature would I think...

The one thing driving me nuts on all the talk shows right now is the talk of the "streak".....yeah it is impressive and still will be years from now but its not like he was EVER going to catch Favre....

Eli would have needed to start every game for another 5+ seasons and he is clearly on the downside of his career at 36...

Hope he gets a chance to go out on his own terms with another team but that doesn't always work out...

Quick draw reaction by fans, twitter, former players currently with media outlets. McAdoo may not be everyone's favorite but no way does a coach have that much control unless he is the GM, too, even then more than 1 or 2 in the discussion.

Eli Manning has not been very sharp and he has not been making very good decisions. That's one of the possible reasons why he was benched.

I don't get going to Smith. He is a known commodity, especially in NY. They should go with the youth movement and Webb.

Supposedly, Webb is going to get a look in the next few weeks as well...but this isnt some indictment of Eli...this is more of the team trying to see what they have in Webb. Yeah, I know Gino is getting a chance, but who really believes that he is the Giants future at this point?

Well, I hate it for Eli Manning, but I think it might be a blessing in disguise for him. Certainly I'm no fan of the Giants, Eagles, and especially 'dem Cowboys, but I have always respected Eli Manning as I did his brother, just like I respected certain players on the other rival teams (Jason Witten, Bryan Westbrook, etc...)

Eli has been getting killed out there. I think it's going to take awhile for the Giants to rebuild, and I think by the time they do so, Eli will be too old to enjoy a rebuilt Giants team. I think he needs to go somewhere else where he has a chance at the post season. It would be something if Eli followed in his brother's footsteps and went to Denver! But I think ultimately, he goes to Jacksonville.

Odd that I can feel empathy right now for both Dak and Eli (must be good times for the birds)


What is going on with Eli is a travesty to me


No legit replacement, no reason to bench him IMHO


I am also happy to hear Eli said no to starting one series to keep his streak up and set if you are going to bench me, bench me classy answer


Sad to see the NY Giants doing wrong by him even if I despise the Giants (don't hate the people just the uniform)

Agreed! Eli deserves much better. As for Dak, I can't feel too sorry for him. I think he started believing the preseason hype a little too much. Elliot is that good and Dak really benefited from him being in the lineup.
