Eli Benched! Coach and GM Gone!

By James Meehan


Ben McAdoo benched Eli Manning and started backup quarterback Geno Smith! It was so sad to see a 2 time Super Bowl winning champ on the sidelines. I really am shocked they put Geno Smith on the field since he did not do well with the Jets. Last year he unsuccessfully led them to a 5-11 record.

On Sunday the Giants still lost 17-24 against the Oakland Raiders. Geno completed 21 out of 34 passes for a total of 212 yards. After the loss to the Oakland Raiders, the Giants fired head coach Ben McAdoo and General Manager Jerry Reese. I think it was a good idea because do you seriously think you can bench the second best Giants player of all time and not get fired! Personally I think it was a good idea to fire Ben McAdoo.

I hope Eli knows it was not his fault. The linemen are letting the linebackers and defensive line sack Eli. Poor Eli. His father Archie Manning said that being benched, “Flat out broke his heart.”
