Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

The New York Giants are scratching and clawing their way to the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Ohio State star defensive end Chase Young is in their sights, but don’t worry, veteran quarterback Eli Manning is here to ruin it for all of us.

With rookie passer Daniel Jones missing several weeks with a mild high ankle sprain, Manning is back in rotation under center, and if anyone is to benefit, it will be running back Saquon Barkley. Manning is known for his desire to dump passes off to crossing receivers and running backs, which is why Barkley was so successful in 2019. Also, Eli’s ability to decipher coverages and blitzers at the line of scrimmage played an essential part in Barkley finding holes in the defense.

However, Manning might have his revenge planned out on head coach Pat Shurmur, who we will blame for the Giants missing out on Young if they win against the Philadelphia Eagles. Establishing a winning culture is important, and that needs to be a priority. Still, Jones needs to be leading the team and walking away with the victory, not Manning, who’s in jeopardy of tainting his career record even further.

Will Daniel Jones return in 2019?

With only four weeks left in the regular season, Jones could very well miss the remainder of the season with the high ankle sprain and injury that must be taken seriously. I don’t expect him to return, but it depends on how significant the damage is and how fast he can begin planting on his right ankle. At this point, we might see Manning enjoy four games of farewell, two of which will come against the Eagles.
