Quarterbacks Grade: 88/100 B+

Eli Manning is a two time Super Bowl MVP. It really doesn’t matter if you think he is elite and it doesn’t matter where you rank him. What matters is that he performs at a high level year in and year out. What matters is that he gives the Giants a chance to win each and every Sunday.

The questions about the Giants quarterback situation is what will happen if Manning gets injured and misses a significant amount of time. Could the Giants win a couple games with Ryan Nassib under center? Because Manning is the Iron Man of Giants football, we have yet to see much from Nassib on the field.

You don’t need your backup to be great, but you do need him to be able to steer the ship if your captain goes down. If Nassib were to go down due to injury, who would be the next man up? Look what happened to the Arizona Cardinals in 2014, they went through every option at quarterback. The reservations about Nassib as a back up knock the grade down to a B+.
