1. Eli Manning: Manning is the Giants leader on and off the field. He has been with the Giants since 2004 and has won two Super Bowls as their quarterback. 2014 was a bounce back year for Manning. After throwing 27 interceptions in 2013, Manning threw for 4,410 yards, 30 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Manning looked like a completely new player in the 2014 season. The Giants are expecting big things from Manning in his second season in Ben McAdoo’s offense.
2. Ryan Nassib: Nassib is the Giants back up quarterback. He hasn’t gotten much action on the field because Manning is very much the Giants version of an iron man. Nassib has awesome athletic ability and prefers to scramble rather than throwing in the pocket.
Many Giants fans are familiar with what he brings to the table because they watched him perform at Syracuse. Nassib doesn’t appear to be the next franchise passer of the Giants but he could steer the ship for a game or two if Manning went down.
