Listen to Francessa this week and we should all know....

Emlen'sGremlins : 4/20/2019 10:55 am
....who the Giants are picking in the draft. As of this Wednesday Francessa said that the Giants "haven't told me yet what they're doing".

I guess the article below might have some merit. Lol!

How many times is the media going to get the Eli Manning benching

wrong. People were irate because it was for fucking Geno Smith not because it happened.

The thing that really irritates me is every clown that writes another version of this same piece thinks they are clever. One can just see his smug self-satisfied mug as. he types it out.
That was a fun read...

The Pope is probably sitting in his recliner with his veal parmesan sub now basking in all of his glory.

As I've stated many times, it is abundantly clear that the outrage over Manning's benching by the fans and the media was a watershed for this franchise.

And Mara blinked.

Who cares who it was for? The team was 2-9. Either he was finished and it was time to give somebody else a chance, or it wasn’t. The fan and media reaction that week has lead to everything that has happened since. So everybody take a bow.

Speaking for me and at least a good number of fans I know, I wasn’t irate either at Eli being benched or that it was for Geno Smith - but rather bc they left it up to McAdoo to both decided how it happened and to tell him on front of others in the QB meeting.

Mara and Reese should have been A, in the building, and B, had the respect for Manning to look him in the eye and explain their plan.

Let's bench Cal Ripken Jr.

For Geno Smith. Brilliant!

The outrage was because it was for Geno Smith.

They benched him for Davis Webb you wouldn't hear a peep. Francesca's rant was that in a nutshell and I agreed with him. The Giants were terrible and we know what Geno Smith is, a journeyman backup QB. It offered no upside, Webb at least offered an unknown. You never know, some guys come into games and light it up. Thank God we still lost that game.

I lost a ton of respect for Mara that day. And it is clear to me is just some mealy mouthed silver spoon baby with no balls. The way they blindsided Eli was an abomination. As the owner of the franchise and guy that insists on having final say you need to handle that. He just couldn't because he's a giant pussy who ran away from the situation.
It was a desperate move

To save Ben and Jerry’s ass.

They were wrong. Although slightly more mobile - a bad OL cannot be disguised.
The part about the Mara's being a smart football family  
arniefez : 4/20/2019 2:11 pm : link
is hilarious. Give me an example of the Mara's ever doing anything smart that didn't involve Tim Mara jr forcing Rozelle to get involved. I dare you.
Mike

Like a lot of us has a strong opinion that has a lot of merit. he has as much influence on the Giants management as you and I do. None. Mike knows what has worked for the Giants in the past, and what has not worked. Odell Beckham did not work in New York Giants football, the Giants and Mike were right. Many older fans felt this way, the younger fans didn't, not all on both parts but the majority. Giant fans will be thrilled as soon as they start to win again, then the media will call the franchise geniuses. You pay attention to the media and you will drive yourself crazy, no matter what your opinion is.
Let's bench Lou Gehrig

"They benched him for Davis Webb you wouldn't hear a peep." .... you're crazy if you really believe that.

You're crazy if you don't believe that.
The plan was never to bench him at all

Just to start working in the other guys.

Eli turned it into a benching
