Has Spags spoken with the press? Eli announced as starter?

ron mexico : 12/5/2017 12:35 pm
Would have thought one or both would have happened by now.

Did I miss it? After practice today?
Don't think it happens until tomorrow

Eli spoke with him yesterday  
GeneInCal : 12/5/2017 1:13 pm : link
and Spags said he needs to discuss with the offensive coaches.Seemed like an odd response.

Came from his convo with Mara, not Eli.

He probably hadn't spoken with Eli at that point

At the end of each News and Notes update, I provide a "what's next" schedule. Giants have no media availability today. Head Coach and players address press on Wednesday.

During Eli's segment on Francesa last night, Francesa asked Eli if he had spoken with Spags yet. Eli said he had and specifically said Spags told him Spags had to discuss the situation with the offensive coaches. Eli went on to say that he let Spags know he wanted to start.
so assuming eli gets starting position back now

and Webb never sees a down rest of the way...then what in the world was the point of Geno starting vs raiders then?

are the giants this inept?or what?

McAdoo and Reese were inept and were behind Geno starting. They were fired yesterday. Webb has had virtually no reps the way the t-leaves read and with all WR injured. Why throw him to the wolves. Eli should start, Webb backup and Geno at No. 3.

Nope, that came from Eli directly.

Thanks, didn't see this
Webb starting  
LakeGeorgeGiant : 12/5/2017 2:07 pm : link
wouldn't have upset me per se, but I dont think we are really going to learn much about him anyhow. Honestly, Webb isnt going to prevent the Giants from drafting a QB early if the talent is there.
What should happen  
RollBlue : 12/5/2017 2:14 pm : link
is that Eli should start, with Webb being the backup. Smith should be cut - sign another player that can be evaluated down the stretch. Get Webb some playing time over the last quarter of the season - that would make the most sense.

Yes it may. If Webb looks competent, then why waste a #1 on a QB when they have so many needs.
In reality, there is likely a better QB available top 2 or 3, but if Webb blows them away there are several players that can make immediate impact after the draft. However like the 'Skins did with RG3 and Cousin, it might do them well to have Webb as a fall back.
