Saquon Barkley also does not want anyone complaining about Eli Manning .
The Giants took some controversial steps in this off-season, which left many in doubt as to whether East Rutherford really had a plan. And while Landon Collins ran and Odell Beckham Jr. was surprisingly traded to the Browns, the team has continued to show confidence in Manning.
Manning is no stranger to fans who wants him to give it up, but Barkley is tired of hearing he can not play the game anymore. The rookie sensation did not stop when asked about it.
"Yes, it bothers me," said Barkley Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report . "I will not lie because it's not his fault, he's not the reason, we love blaming a person, but it takes eleven men, one team, one organization to win."

It can be assumed that the workload will remain the same in the next season, if not more through the air.

"Obviously he's 38 years old," said Gettleman. "As Pat (Shurmur) says, he is closer to 40 than to 20." The bottom line is, yes, we have to address it. It's the reality, so we'll work when the time is right. "
