NY Giants to Start QB Geno Smith This Sunday
Eli Manning's consecutive streak of starting 210 regular season games is coming to an end this weekend.
NY Giants Head Coach, Ben McAdoo announced today that QB Geno Smith will start on Sunday as the Giants face the Oakland Raiders.
According to ESPN:
Over the last five games, we will take a look at Geno, and we will also give [rookie third-round pick Davis [Webb] an opportunity." says McAdoo
When Eli was asked about his streak coming to an end, this is what he had to say:
Coach McAdoo told me I could continue to start while Geno and Davis are given an opportunity to play. My feeling is that if you are going to play the other guys, play them. Starting just to keep the streak going and knowing you won't finish the game and have a chance to win it is pointless to me, and it tarnishes the streak. Like I always have, I will be ready to play if and when I am needed. I will help Geno and Davis prepare to play as well as they possibly can."
