Didn’t think the Giants could get any worse? Well, we’re about the find out. Per the Giants twitter account..
You read that right. The Giants are benching Eli Manning for Geno Smith ending Eli Manning’s streak at 210 games. The same Geno Smith that lost his starting spot, on the Jets, because he got sucker punched by a teammate. They do say that they will take a look at their rookie Davis Webb, but Geno is starting this Sunday.
My first thought is why wouldn’t they just start Davis Webb to see what they have in him instead of a proven commodity of a guy who couldn’t start for the Jets. That way they will have somewhat of a sample size heading into the draft. If this is for Ben McAdoo to save his job, then he’s going about it in the worst possible way.
