Giants GM doesn’t see a future for Eli Manning: ex-teammate

GFAN52 : 1/3/2019 1:15 pm
Quote:
“He’s saying he doesn’t see a future for Eli,” Herzlich told CBS Sports Radio’s “Taz & The Moose” show Thursday morning. “He wanted to stay as noncommittal as he possibly could, but you could tell he let his emotions kind of get in the way a little bit.”

Agree that the decision at this point may be Eli's.  
CT Charlie : 1/3/2019 2:10 pm : link
I think he'd like to pass Johnny Unitas on the all-time wins list, which requires only two more wins, and perhaps reach 125. But a terrible season could give him a losing career record (he's 116-106) which would hurt his chances for the HOF. Right now, I think he's trying to figure out how much passion he still has. I think he stays, and we find his replacement this off-season.
Not for nothing but

I seriously doubt that Gettlemen would share something like this with Hertzlich or anyone other than Management right now; and it is disingenuous of Hertzlich to imply that he knows this

I could be wrong  
Sammo85 : 1/3/2019 2:17 pm : link
But I could swear Herzlich was on good terms and friends with Eli. I had thought he was involved in some of Eli’s charitable efforts locally.
Herzlich clearly has compromising info on the Maras.

How else can one explain his lengthy tenure with the Giants, it certainly wasn't based on ability.

I take anything he says as coming directly from the owners box.
Lets say  
Pete in MD : 1/3/2019 2:18 pm : link
Herzlich is Eli's best friend and Eli told him what was said in the private meeting with Gettleman, do you think Eli would be cool with Herzlich gabbing about it a few days later with Taz and Moose?

That's the way it works on BBI.

When a current or ex, player or coach, or even a beat writer shares their INFORMED opinion, and posters don't like what they hear, they immediately try to discredit the source.

Why does Herzlich know more than we do? He's never played for a team that Dave Gettleman was GM of and I can't imagine he has any relationship with him. Why would he have any idea how he's going to handle the Eli situation?



Actually not true. Herzlich was signed by Gettleman in March and was part of the September final cuts this year.




Not true?

Which football team was Dave Gettleman GM of that Mark Herzlich actually played for? All Gettleman did was cut him here. Herzlich played zero downs and there's no reason why he would be privy to any information that others wouldn't.



Well he signed him and cut him and there was a 6 month window in between those two.

I dont know what their relationship was in those 6 months, do you?




Seeing as Gettleman was busy dealing with cancer treatment at the time and we're discussing a crappy back end roster piece who didn't even make the team and wasn't picked up anywhere else... I'm going to go ahead and assume that the two of them didn't spend any time discussing Eli Manning's future or really anything regarding Gettleman's plans as GM.


Didn't you spend literally all day yesterday trying to chastise me for putting forth opinion as fact (when I wasn't even doing that)? It's just funny that you know what information Herzlich has now for a fact and that it is nothing more than you or I have.

Interesting twist of fate when the shoe is on the other foot.

Carry on and have a blessed day.

And with that - it remains clear that you still haven't figured out the difference between opinion and fact.

I said I am going to assume that Dave Gettleman was not spending time discussing the future of his franchise QB with a camp body who was never going to even make the team. I think it's a more logical assumption to make than the contrary. I didn't say anything was factual. I'm telling you what I think. Incredible that you're still struggling with such a basic concept.

I tried to not be a dick to you yesterday, but you make it really really hard. You're an extremely irritating person to try discussing virtually anything with.

Have a blessed day, dipshit.

arcarsenal : 1/3/2019 2:32 pm : link
If I wanted to frame my opinion as a fact, I'd say...

"Dave Gettleman did not discuss anything regarding Eli Manning with Mark Herzlich"

or, like you did yesterday, say...

"Odell Beckham doesn't care about the Giants"

Those are opinions stated as facts. Saying I am assuming something is me telling you that it's my opinion.

Let me know when this makes sense to you. I feel like I'm trying to speak to a child.

It is just ironic that is all. Before I called it to your attention your comment was:

"Herzlich played zero downs and there's no reason why he would be privy to any information that others wouldn't."

I don't see where you say that you "assume" that he has no reason.....or "I believe that there is no reason"

What is good for the goose is apparently not good for the gander that's all.

I actually don't think there is anything wrong with what you wrote. It is a message board it is obviously your opinion. Unless you are secretly Mark Herzlich or Dave Gettleman you can't know any of this as fact. Hence the point I was making yesterday- we all have our opinions. Yours is fine just like mine and I respect it.

Carry on.

FYI- for those that want some comic relief, I've linked the archived thread below. Kehl had did an interview stating that Coughlin didn't like him, shaving his chest, wearing pink shirts, and eating alone. BBI goes ahead and does their best, "Who gives a shit?" "Kehl is a soft pussy." etc. Then Bryan goes ahead and comments on BBI to correct his side of the story. Then the Communal Backtrack commences.
Bryan Kehl defends shaving his chest and wearing pink shirts. - ( New Window )
Is it possible the Giants  
mattyblue : 1/3/2019 3:08 pm : link
are trying to put out uncertainty on Eli to see if their are any suitors willing to trade for him? Obviously he has a no trade clause but would it be possible that DG and Eli’s “discussion” the other day was about if he would be willing to play elsewhere? I agree that it seems far fetched but unless Eli retires I still figure he will be here in 2019 with or without a high draft pick.
That was actually Bryan Kehl?

Yeah, it was. Just a funny moment on BBI that is typical. Someone makes a comment about the Giants. BBI lashes out. In this case, Bryan logs on and defends his viewpoint. And the backtracking couldn't happen fast enough. One poster - BigBlueShock early in the thread talks about ball waxing and then 2 posts after Bryan revealed himself, it's all "thanks for stopping by".
I take that back...  
2ndroundKO : 1/3/2019 3:22 pm : link
He's pretty tight with the Mara's though:

As for John Mara, well, let’s just say he never, ever is going to quibble with Herzlich’s name appearing on the final roster.

“I would like to think I’m close-ish with John, as close as any employee-employer relationship,’’ Herzlich said. “I’ll see him at events and we’ll talk, but it’s not like he’s coming over for dinner or I’m going over his house for dinner.”

Herzlich is more than “close-ish’’ with three of John Mara’s kids — Erin, Chrissy and John Jr. — and also with Danny Mara, a son of Chris Mara, one of John’s younger brothers and the Giants’ senior vice president of player personnel. Erin, Chrissy and Danny all went to Boston College.

I would be if I was him? Look at the tape? Really? He's been QB for 15 years. They watch game film after every game. I think we all know that the gut decision is already determined, the informed decision is already determined, and it's just triple checking at this point.

If I am Eli I want out. I ask for my release. I want to go to a team that has more balanced talent and win. I wouldn't have time to wait.

At some point enough is enough. How would you like to interview for your job at the end of every year?
wow  
giantfan2000 : 1/3/2019 7:03 pm : link
everyone really misinterpreted this article and interview with Herzlich

what Herzlich is saying is He was one of the LAST cuts of Giants this past year .. so Herzlich saw how Gettleman operated and how his own cut went down and after seeing how Gettleman talked about Eli in press conference he is making an educated guess that Eli in on the way out.

But jeez it doesn't take rocket science -- All you have to do is listen to what Gettleman said about Eli when he got the job last year and what he said about Eli this week to know that Eli is on thin ice.

Giants fans are split on Eli for next season, so whatever DG decides, it will creat an uproar among one side or another.

I think he already knows what he is going to do, and all that stuff about having to watch tape, is just due diligence


He may know what he wants to do, but he does not know that he can have his preference. Underclassmen haven't yet declared for the draft, he doesn't know which teams will lock up free agents or how negotiations with any free agents he may want will go. Or negotiations with Eli over a restructure if that is what he is thinking. of course he is being non-committal at this stage

As someone who played for the Giants for the better part of a decade, is it such a stretch to contemplate that, perhaps, Herzlich still has plenty of contacts with the organization and, via a couple of phone calls or text messages, can get the “word on the street” within Giants-land?
