The Record's Art Stapleton disagrees with Giants' decision to send Eli Manning to the bench and play Daniel Jones at QB.
Pro Football Hall of Famer quarterback Terry Bradshaw said that if he was the New York giant QB Eli Manning, he would "pack my bags and I would go home," now that the Manning is up a bank stands.
"I understand why they did, but it's a tough pill to swallow for Eli," Bradshaw told Fox business coach Pat Shurmur on Wednesday announced that the decision "is more based on Daniel than Eli ".
38-year-old Manning has been in New York for the past 15 years Bradshaw, who has played every 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, has settled into Manning's position.
END OF AN ERA: Eli Manning deser Better Than Giants' Bank, years of indecision
said Bradshaw, now a Fox Sports Analyst. "I hope he agrees with that, I'm sure he is not, if they came to Pittsburgh after two weeks and said, 'Terry, we have to go on and on.' ; I would shake hands with them, pack my bags and go home, because that would be a tough pill to swallow after all this. "
Manning piloted New York to two Super Bowls and counted 232 Starts during the last 233 regular-season Giants games, and becomes the franchise provider's career leader for handing over yards, touchdown passes and completed passes. But two consecutive season losses and a bad offensive production led to the change. Manning has dropped 556 yards and two touchdowns against interceptions this season.
Jones, a first-round draft pick for the Giants in March, is scheduled to start week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"I really feel for him," added Bradshaw of Manning. "This is a terrible situation, after so many great years as a giant."
