Former Giants Players Reactions To The Eli Manning Benching
As we all know Eli Manning has been benched for Geno Smith for the upcoming game against the Raiders. I have not seen anyone agree with this decision yet. There is a lot emotion and the Tweets below let you know how the people feel.
Eli deserves much better than that. Much better. Class person, class player. That’s absurd

I’m honestly at a lost for words. As a person that has seen Eli the QB but also Eli the Man, I’m truly pissed about what has taking place today. This decision is one of the STUPIDEST I’ve seen in my time being asap with pro sports #noloyalty #14years #bullshit

I'm absolutely speechless. I've watched every game & have sat through this rough @Giants season & this what you do to a man who has lead this team for 210 straight games

That line the giants have pushed “we’re trying to see what we got” is straight Bullshit. We know what Geno is and if Webb was special he’d be playing already.

Eli Manning you’re always gonna be my QB. 2X Super Bowl MVP you can’t make that shit up bro.

The list goes on and on and on. There was a lot of outrage over this and rightfully so. If the Giants want to move on from at least let him finish the season. Eli has at least earned the right to finish out the last 5 weeks of this abysmal year. I don’t believe they could have done this anymore unceremoniously than this. Shame on the New York Giants organization.
