  1. Espn hoping and praying that Dwayne ass Haskins plays better next game , the way these “experts” have slandered Jones even before taking the field is disgusting and they should be ashamed

  2. Stephen A you have disrespected daniel jones, you have disrespected yourself and the giants organization by even THINKING eli deserves to get the automatic start over Daniel jones. In that 1 game Daniel jones proved hes better than eli has EVER been and yet you wanna hold your pride and keep losing the way you've been losing the last decade.

  3. Please fire Molly. She tried so hard to get her voice to be heard. She technically borderline screaming everytime she tried to cut the conversations. Annoying as hell… Molly cant moderate the show… She sucks. She keep trying add something up in the middle of conversations every time… Fire her pleaseee… 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

  4. People keep saying it was on possession. That may be the case but Eli is a scrub and needs to retire. It's time to put the newbie in and let him learn the game. They have a good run game they can play conservative and allow him to do play action to have success. Anyways, bench Eli tired of watching the bad Giants

  5. Didn't the media play the race card against the Giants for drafting Jones over Haskins? What a crock of shit. Makes for a great story, though, lol! The Giants just felt more comfortable going with Jones, who played in a David Cutcliffe ran offense at Duke, & obviously felt he fit their offense better. Cutcliffe also coached both Eli & Peyton in college.

  6. Let's compared 6 QBs from 2015-2018
    A. Rodgers, M. Stafford, A. Dalton, Big Ben, Cam Newton and Eli Manning.

    Record – 6th
    Completions – 2nd (behind Stafford)
    Comp% – 3rd (above Rodgers)
    Yards – 3rd (above Rodgers)
    TDs – 4th (above Cam/Dalton)
    Rate – 5th (above Cam)
    INTs – 2nd (only Ben threw more)

    Still a solid QB. Better QB than Dalton and Cam. Cam just makes up for it with his legs.

  7. You’ll be eating crow soon Stephen A & Will Cain. There is a lot of talent, young talent on the Giants at nearly every position. If these guys continue to develop and some of the 2nd, 3rd & 4th year guys take the next step & produce at a high level next to the veterans peppered throughout the roster. This team will surprise the NFC East & NFL this year.
