New York Giants: Eli Manning has never had this many playmakers
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champion, but he’s never played with offensive talent like he’ll have in 2017.
Whether or not he’s accepted as a Hall of Famer around the NFL, it’s more than likely that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will find his bust in Canton. Through all of the criticism, he’s become one of the most productive and accomplished field generals in league history.
Having established that as true, there’s no hyperbole in the statement that Manning has never played with as much offensive talent as he will in 2017.
Manning has done quite well for himself, setting Giants franchise records for completions, passing yards, and passing touchdowns. He’s No. 7 on the NFL’s all-time completions list, No. 8 on the all-time passing yards list, and No. 7 on the all-time passing touchdowns list.
Manning is also a two-time Super Bowl champion and two-time Super Bowl MVP, making him one of five players in NFL history who can claim the latter.
For as accomplished as Manning is, there’s never been a stronger reason for optimism than 2017 presents. The defense will still need to hold up, but the Giants’ offense has a level of firepower that hasn’t previously been present during the Jerry Reese era.
The question is: who are the playmakers whom Eli Manning and the New York Giants will be able to turn to on a consistent basis during the 2017 NFL season?
