Eli Manning will get this next last chance, this next last chance, Phil Simms never got, and because of human essence and what he meant for his franchise and this city, you rats to a last hurray for him, dream that ends with the dream team, he never wanted to leave in his adopted dream city.
You are rooted in Eli Manning if you understand what it means for a franchise to have a gentleman as a face for 15 years, Pride of the Giants for this generation, how Frank Gifford was a former generation's pride.
But only a romantic who sees the world through Big Blue-colored glasses can expect the kind of Super ending for him, as big brother Peyton enjoyed, John Elway enjoyed when he won his first two Super Bowls before he rescued in the sunset.
Eli is The Caretaker, the gray-haired admiral was preserved to control a ship in need of repair over stormy seas. He has not had enough of a quarterback to overcome the awful offensive lines that have been gathered to protect him and rob him of many of his prime years and if the Jews choose to believe in better bodyguards and better defense and another season in the Pat Shurmurs offensive system will unlock the two-time Super Bowl MVP, they are shocking with such a troop.
General manager Dave Gettleman undoubtedly acknowledges that he can believe in a last run over Eli Manning Bridge as long as he begins to build the bridge for a better tomorrow, a tomorrow championship.
"It would be my dream to do what Ernie Accorsi did, hand over to this team a franchise quarterback," Gettleman said.
Then stop dreaming and find one already. Your Big Blue heritage depends on it.
Memo for Gettleman: Please fall in love with someone. Dwayne Haskins … or Kyler Murray … or Josh Rosen should he be available.
Gettleman reminded us a year ago when he passed Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and Rosen with the second overall election that you did not better draft quarterback unless you have a conviction about him because you run the risk of Find yourself in Quarterback Hell if you swing and miss.
You'll also find yourself in Quarterback Hell if your quarterback is 38 years old and you are waiting for The Next John Elway … or The Next Patrick Mahomes … or The Next Eli Manning to succeed him.
You can't afford to be so paralyzed by the fear that you neglect to pull the trigger unless and until the perfect quarterback outlook stares at your face. 1
Just because Haskin's not seen by most as convincing views like Darnold or Allen or Rosen doesn't mean you can't win with him. Shurmur, remember, was head coach / quarterback whisperer who helped Case Keenum come to an NFC title game with the Vikings.
Haskins, with only 14 starts at Ohio State, will need a mentor like a rookie. Who is better at mentoring him than Manning, who plays Kurt Warner 2004, or Alex Smith 2017?
"The Kansas City model worked really well," Gettleman said.
It sure did. Haskins is not Pat Mahomes. But who is it?
Gettleman should acknowledge urgency and armed with the sixth choice either acting for Haskins or throwing the franchise's standing prototype 5-foot 9/7 / ¯ Murray guidelines, knowing that on a roster with so many holes, franchise The quarterback remains the largest.
Or if the cardinals are obsessed with Murray and draft him with the first overall election, Gettleman, who will have 10 drafts and $ 27.5 million for free agents, would trade for the Rosen and let him compete with Manning and then use the sixth pick on the best available Hog Mollie.
The jury will decide whether the preparation of Saquon Barkley was the right move until Gettleman lands the right franchise quarterback. Because the right franchise quarterback always trumps the franchise back.
Giantsne has talked about Manning's back nine years ago. Critics shouted that Accorsi gave up too much in the draft of the Manning charger.
"No courage, no glory," said Gettleman.
He must be so good at his job now that Barkley is at his. Gettleman can't afford to bogey the franchise quarterback hole. The giants may not be able to spell B-E-L-I-E-E without an E, L and I. At what time will they recognize that you cannot spell D-E-L-I-N-E without an E, L, and I?
