It looks like the clock is running out for quarterback Eli Manning. He’s getting older and just not getting the job done for the Giants this year. So far, they are tied for the worst record in the NFL at 1-7. They share this honor with the 49ers, who also have only won one game.
The Giants are headed into their bye week so this could be a good time to shake things up. They have a good two weeks off to get things together for their Monday night game in San Francisco on November 12th.
Lauletta is a fourth round pick out of Richmond. So far this season he hasn’t seen any playing time. And perhaps for good reason. He doesn’t have the strongest arm or the most agility in the pocket. But the Giants need to try something. They have scored more the 20 points in only three of eight games this season. Their offense is really suffering.
Management and players alike have been cagey when asked what they think should be done concerning the quarterback position. It seems that no one wants to say that Manning is out. After all, he has been their franchise quarterback for years now. But perhaps he has run his course in New York.
With Eli Manning faltering in the quarterback position, who is going to answer the Giants’ prayers?
