Giants aren’t calling it quits on the Eli Manning era just yet

Through 15 years, there have been rough times for Eli Manning. Plenty of them. Accolades sure, but more recently, growing doubt on the outside, and perhaps even a little bit on the inside, about his ability to continue to function and thrive as the franchise quarterback of the New York Giants.

His Giants were 1-5 after six games in 2017, a season that ended with the firings of the head coach and general manager four games before the merciful end of a 3-13 plummet.

The Giants are 1-5 again this season, and given that Manning is 37 and has more often been part of the problem than part of the solution, it is no stretch to state this is the toughest time in his career — even tougher than his one-game non-start last December.

“Hey, it’s tough, it’s very tough,” Manning said Friday in a near-empty Giants locker room. “You don’t like being in this situation. I think it’s different from last year because last year we were banged up, lost a bunch of players, it was hard to kind of see the bright side of it. This year you see the bright side.
