The Giants are now officially trying to lose games. While Eli hasn’t played well this season, Geno Smith can’t be a better option. Smith is a guy who has shown, in my opinion, that he doesn’t have what it takes to be a starter in the NFL.
This looks as if the Giants are making sure that they will not win more than the two games they already have. This is because they want to keep their position at the third pick in the NFL Draft, so they can get their next quarterback, whether it be Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen.
Another huge part of the story is that Eli was given the opportunity to start, but instead he chose not to. This could be a sign that he is done with football and might even consider retiring this offseason. If he retires or not, I believe Eli’s time in New York is over after this season.
