Giants coaches reportedly decide Eli Manning will start vs. Cowboys

Giants coaches reportedly decide Eli Manning will start vs. Cowboys

"Dear (Giants fan), Today, we made the hard decision to relieve head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese of their duties", read the letter. "This season has been extremely disappointing for our organization, and we determined now was the right time to make these changes".

Have these recent events of betrayal created too great a divide between the greatest quarterback to ever wear Giants blue and ownership in order to continue together beyond this season?

Now under interim coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was promoted from defensive coordinator on Monday and is considered a candidate to replace McAdoo, Manning will start for the 211th time in his career.




Those who responded to the news of a player's benching by buying his jersey will likely be happy that the Giants are reversing course in the face of criticism of last week's move, but it's unclear if his return will chill the suddenly percolating market for Manning merchandise.

Host Joe Giglio and Giants beat writers Dan Duggan and James Kratch also offer some early thoughts on the Giants' general manager and head coaching searches to come.

A day after being fired along with coach Ben McAdoo with the team reeling with a 2-10 record, Reese released a short statement in which he thanked the Mara and Tisch families for putting their confidence in him.
