“I really believe there has been a false narrative out there that Eli is finished, he’s done,” Gettleman said, per the New York Post’s Peter Botte. “He had a heck of a year. We scored a lot of points late. But, at the end of the day, jerseys nfl cheap Eli can still make all of the NFL throws. He can still play.”
No statistical evidence can be provided to back up the general manager’s claims. Manning finished bottom half of the league in completion percentage, touchdowns and quarterback rating.
The veteran signal-caller did rank fifth in turnover-worthy plays last season, according to Pro Football Focus’ Steve Palazzolo. Manning didn’t even play well down the stretch as Gettleman stated. He graded as the NFL’s 32nd-best quarterback from Week 8 on, per PFF’s Pat Thorman. Obviously, former Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t agree with the idea the aging quarterback can still “make all of the NFL throws.” nfl jersey nike

“Anyhow, the bottom line is, yes, we have to address it,” the general manager said, per Botte. “It’s reality. So when the time is right we will.”
Timing is everything here.women nfl jerseys cheap The Giants own a pair of first-round picks this year thanks to the Beckham trade. New York must invest one of those selections in the game’s most important position.
