Daniel Jones will start Thursday vs. Patriots

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Pat Shurmur says Eli Manning has gotten enough preseason work The preseason is over for Eli Manning. He will watch on Thursday as ballyhooed rookie quarterback Daniel Jones gets the start when the New York Giants fans the New England Patriots in their preseason finale.

Jones’ impressive preseason, going 25-of-30 (83.3 percent) for 369 yards, two touchdowns and a 1401.1 passer rating, has left many calling...

Why has Giants’ QB Eli Manning always been such a divisive player?

Why has Giants’ QB Eli Manning always been such a divisive player?

Eli Manning | Photo by Michael Hickey/ I try to give you my view on why that is Eli Manning.
