Eli Manning wants to prove Giants right in 2018

  • New York Giants Sam Darnold

Manning stopped short of embracing a mentor role to someone such as Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen - two quarterbacks who could be in play for the Giants during the draft.

"Every year, you've got backup quarterbacks and they're usually going to be younger than you", Manning said. The new leaders have committed to Manning as the starter for 2018 on the heels of significant uncertainty about the 37-year-old's future after he was benched by former coach Ben McAdoo in Week 14.

Manning said Friday that he is eager to prove the new Giants' leadership right in their decision to guarantee him the starting job even before the NFL Draft. In that process, you're always talking football, helping out the other guys in the room, whether it's Davis Webb this year or Geno [Smith] or guys over the years. Manning said he won't be upset if the Giants take a quarterback with the second pick. "Whatever happens happens, but I know that I'm going to improve as a quarterback".

The departed general manager, Jerry Reese, did not do a good job protecting Manning with a quality offensive line, a failing that more than anything else contributed to the 3-13 record in 2017 and an all-encompassing offensive malaise. My job is to play quarterback.




"All I can worry about it doing my job", Manning said.

Last week, the Giants introduced new head coach Pat Shurmur, who is replacing Ben McAdoo, who was sacked in December after he went 13-15 in a little less than two seasons and 2-10 in 2017 before his dismissal.

Eli Manning is well aware that he's inching closer toward the end of his career. Find our Giants coverage on Facebook.
