Tom Brady Expresses Sympathy For Benched Giants Quarterback Eli Manning

That, however, won't be the case when the teams meet Sunday in Oakland, Calif. But McAdoo is missing one important bond with Manning.

Manning's backup, Geno Smith, will make his first start since October 23, 2016, when he was a member of the New York Jets. "I've watched every game and have sat through this rough Giants season and this what you do to a man who has lead this team for 210 straight games". "It's a tough situation that they're in and he obviously had to be in so I'm thankful it's not happening to me right now". That's not fair to me, that's not fair to Geno, that's not how you play.

"Eli and Peyton both, you think about those two Mannings and what they've done over 400-something games those guys were out there in a row", Rivers said. He is working hard. The communication part of things is early and ... when the ball is snapped, he knows where he wants to go with the ball.

"I just thought it was too bad, just the way it was handled", Rivers said. "A lot of it is I've been blessed to be healthy enough to be out there, and there's probably a little element of toughness, I guess, thrown in there, and then it's a heck of a job by your teammates all collectively to help you stay upright".

The San Diego Chargers had the top pick, but Manning and his father, Archie, said Eli would refuse to play for them.

"Geno looked sharp today", McAdoo said Wednesday. "He's been in the league for a while and has some experience and certainly is capable if you don't disrupt him". Find our Giants coverage on Facebook.

It's been the motto for the Raiders all season, and they'll have to employ that mantra once again Sunday afternoon, as they'll unquestionably be without the services of Michael Crabtree and possibly without Amari Cooper as well. His goal this week is to get Smith and the offense ready for the Raiders.

Del Rio is turning to some of his younger players to fill the void.

Sullivan fended off questions whether he had a say in the decision to bench Manning.

Will the Silver and Black's defense be able to deliver back-to-back strong performances? He has 186 receiving yards on 21 catches on the season, with seven receptions for 117 yards coming in his past two games.

Quinn hasn't had much direct dealing with Manning as special teams coach, but he does have two rings largely because of Manning's play. Smith also started 30 games in his four seasons with the Jets. He has 262 yards on 24 receptions and one touchdown. "My responsibility being that there is a group of players, there is a quarterback, that needs direction". "Our margin for error has really been eliminated".
