This is strictly targeted at the incompetent front office of the New York Giants. It is time for you to look in the mirror and understand where their franchise is. Eli Manning’s total QBR in 2018 ranked behind the likes of Nick Mullens and Josh Allen. That is with weapons like Odell Beckham, Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard and the rookie Saquon Barkley.
The Giants have had one winning season since 2013 and have shown no signs of understanding a certain direction. I will give them the credit of ignoring the critics that say running backs can be found in later rounds and taking the best player in the draft last season Saquon Barkley. They follow that up this offseason by moving arguably the best wide receiver in all of football Odell Beckham Jr. They are clearly trying to go in a different direction, yet they hold on to their 38-year-old quarterback that has been past his prime for about two years. At the very least you have to try and prepare for time after Eli, if they truly think he still has something in the tank than they may not have another chance to take a high-level quarterback next season.
The Giants passing on Dwayne Haskins can be a thorn in their sides for years to come as most recently the Washington Redskins have reported that they are interested in the Ohio State quarterback. Under the tutelage of Jay Gruden Haskins will have a coach with experience bringing along a you quarterback. If the Giants pass it would be very reasonable to believe that the Redskins would be able to make the move to get their target.
New York is a tough fanbase to keep happy. Eli Manning has done it for what seems like my lifetime. He deserves all the respect in the world but when you are sitting at #6 in the draft and have a chance to draft the next face of your franchise you cannot pass this up. Dave Gettleman has already had a historically bad offseason. I mentioned the Beckham trade, but we also can’t forget that this is the same guy that let Landon Collins walk away in free agency. Gettelman is still living off of the work he did in Carolina bringing that team to a new level despite the fact that most of the players that took that team to the next level were not drafted or acquired by him. I don’t believe he is bad at his job but if the Giants decide to pass up on Haskins and he turns out to be the player I believe he will be there is no forgiving the stupidity of the organization.
