The Giants select UCLA's QB Josh Rosen with the No. 2 overall pick in Bleacher Report's latest 2018 NFL mock draft. 

Bleacher Report sees the Giants' need at the quarterback position as the first thing new GM Dave Gettleman addresses. With USC's Sam Darnold going to the Browns, Gettleman will jump on Rosen. 

However, this pick is made with Gettleman looking toward the future. There is still the case where Eli Manning and Davis Webb could be enough in his eyes.

GEICO SportsNite: Giants 00:02:18
The GEICO SportsNite panel discusses the possibility of Eli Manning ending up in Jacksonville and suiting up for the Jaguars next season.

Giants QB Eli Manning is facing an uncertain future with the team, with new GM Dave Gettleman potentially selecting Manning's heir-apparent with the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars advanced to the second round of the playoffs despite the poor play of Blake Bortles.

Does the uncertainty surrounding Bortles and the presence of former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville (he's the VP of football operations), make Manning to the Jaguars a strong possibility? The GEICO SportsNite panel discusses in the video above...

Former Giants coach and Hall of Famer, Bill Parcells, insinuated that New York should draft a quarterback with Eli Manning's age dwindling. 

Parcells spoke on The Michael Kay Show, and noted that a "contigency" plan needs to be put in place for Manning. With the No. 2 overall selection in this year's NFL Draft, the Giants have a good chance to fill that plan with a top quarterback. 

"You know, I don't know all the ramifications of the salary cap that exists," Parcells said on if he would stick with Eli. "Time's coming. I know that. Time is coming. So, contingencies have to be put in place and when you have the opportunity to put a contigency in place I think you need to do it. I think that goes for any team."

New Giants GM Dave Gettleman is confident he can get the team to rebound from a 3-13 season and become playoff contenders again.

"I just believe in the Giant Way," Gettleman told the New York Post's Steve Serby. "I just want it back where it belongs. ... We're gonna fix this."

In a wide-ranging interview that included topics like the future of quarterback Eli Manning and what New York will do with the No. 2 pick in the draft to the importance of his family, Gettleman said he wants to lead the Giants to their fifth Super Bowl trophy.

Giants S Landon Collins has an odd idea regarding the type of player the team should select with the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

"That's a big, that's a tough one," Collins said Wednesday on ESPN's First Take. "I don't say it's a quarterback, no. I don't say it's a quarterback. I'd say we see what we do this offseason. I would say, um, probably get some help at wide receiver. Get Odell, Brandon Marshall, and Sterling [Shepard] and Eli [Manning] some more options."

Aside from the above players as receiving options, the Giants also have TE Evan Engram, who excelled during his rookie season.

New Giants GM Dave Gettleman implied watching film on QB Eli Manning will determine which direction to go with his No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft this April. 

During a radio interview with WFAN on Tuesday, Gettleman was straightforward when asked about his thought process for his first round pick, and it pointed to Manning's performance this year. 

"I have to sit down and study tape," Gettleman said. "I only was able to watch a couple of Giants games front to back, and one of them happened to be Philadelphia (Week 15)...We're going to continue to evaluate, move forward, and continue the process...

THE GAME

The Giants (2-13) vs. the Washington Redskins (7-8) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey,, on Sunday, Dec. 31, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

As if anyone needed a reason to stay home, it'll be 19 degrees (that's the high) with 15 mph winds (that's not even the gusts), so it will feel much colder. It'll feel really cold when the wind starts whipping around what surely will be one of the emptiest stadiums the Giants have ever experienced. It'll be much warmer in your living room, trust me.

WHAT IT MEANS

For the sentimental folks, there's at least a chance that this will be Eli Manning's final start for the Giants -- though the hiring of Dave Gettleman as GM likely means Manning will at least be given the option for more next year. For the futurists, this game is all about the 2018 draft. If the Giants lose, they lock up the No. 2 pick and will be in perfect position to grab Manning's eventual replacement. For everyone else, as far as the Giants are concerned, it means nothing. Absolutely nothing.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning's future with the Giants suddenly seems a little more secure.

There's still no guarantee that he'll be back in 2018, but new Giants GM Dave Gettleman said that "as of right now, yeah" he's moving forward with the idea that Manning is the starting quarterback. He said he still wants to talk with Manning and he wants to watch more of his film from this season.

But Gettleman sure did seem to like what he saw from Manning in at least one particular game...

Dave Gettleman will begin his first full day as the Giants general manager on Friday, and he won't need anyone to show him around the office. He also won't need an update on the Giants' many problems.

He already knows.

The big question, though, is this: How is he going to fix this mess? How is he going to restore the Giants to what they were when he left in 2012.

X-rays were negative on Giants TE Evan Engram's ribs, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, who says the extent of Engram's injury is bruised ribs.

Engram suffered the injury while trying to make a tackle after an Eli Manning interception in the first quarter of Sunday's game. He was later ruled out.

He had one catch for 12 yards before exiting. The 23-year-old rookie, who is the Giants' leading receiver, has 64 catches for 722 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games this season.

After the Giants 23-0 loss to the Cardinals, Eli Manning didn't mince words about his performance. 

Manning was 27-for-45 for 263 yards and two interceptions and was his own biggest critic.

"We didn't score any points, so I didn't play well enough," Manning said, via Michael Eisen of Giants.com "I obviously had the interception early, kind of hit Evan (Engram). We got to look at it. I don't know if I overthrew it or left it inside, the guy made a good play. I think he had hurt his ribs on the play before, and then had the one before half just trying to make a play. I got some pressure. But obviously, hey, we didn't convert on third downs, didn't score, so obviously, I didn't play well enough." 

Interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo has already confirmed that Manning will start the finale against the Redskins rather than Geno Smith or Davis Webb.

It's really simple for the Giants: Draft a quarterback, and focus on the future of the franchise with the aging Eli Manning about to walk off into the sunset. How much easier could it be when you have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, right? 

That appears to be the mindset of almost every expert and fan looking at the Giants in next year's draft after this horrendous season. The Browns are almost a lock to pick a quarterback, and the Giants should follow suit with USC QB Sam Darnold and UCLA QB Josh Rosen headlining the top prospects next season. 

But this Christmas I have someone else on my wish list, someone I believe the Giants would be a fool to pass up next April: Penn State RB Saquon Barkley

Giants quarterback Eli Manning will start in New York's season finale against the Washington Redskins next Sunday, interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo said after Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

A week after throwing for 434 yards and three touchdowns, Manning, 36, completed 27 of 45 passes for 263 yards, two interceptions and one lost fumble as the Giants fell to 2-13.

Giants safety Landon Collins suffered a fractured forearm while tight end Evan Engram and wide receiver Sterling Shepard also left Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals with injuries, according to interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

Collins left the game late in the second quarter on a hit on Arizona's D.J. Foster. One play after he was taken out of the game, Drew Stanton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald that gave the Cardinals a 10-0 lead.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning turned the ball over three times, including a lost fumble that was returned for a touchdown, as New York lost to the Arizona Cardinals 23-0 on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Manning was 27-for-45 for 263 yards and two interceptions, as the Giants fell to 2-13 heading into the final week of the season. A fourth-quarter sack by Deone Bucannon was returned 21 yards by Robert Nkemdiche for a touchdown that gave the Cardinals a 23-0 lead.

The Giants struggled to stop Larry Fitzgerald, who had nine catches for 119 yards and a touchdown. Drew Stanton completed 20 of 34 passes for 209 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Giants S Landon Collins has so much faith in rookie QB Davis Webb that he doesn't want the team to select a QB with their top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

"Don't draft him," Collins told the NY Post when asked about potentially drafting a franchise-level QB next spring. "Don't do it. Davis is gonna be really good in the league when it's his time, I promise you."

The same day the rookie QB took snaps with the first-team offense, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also said he believes the heir apparent to Eli Manning doesn't reside in next year's draft, but rather in their own clubhouse.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants finally took the first small steps towards getting rookie Davis Webb ready to play in a game this season.

Of course, it may already be a little too late.

Webb, a third-round pick out of Cal, got his first practice snaps with the Giants' first-team offense on Wednesday since way back in training camp in August.

If the Giants had any thoughts about starting rookie Davis Webb on Christmas Eve in Arizona, they definitely don't have any now.

Eli Manning slammed that door shut with an impressive performance against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo reiterated Monday that the team has no plans to change their depth chart.

Manning completed 37 of 57 passes for 434 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. It could've been more if his receivers didn't have their usual problem with drops...

Giants tight end Evan Engram said he believed he was interfered with and held on New York's last gasp in Sunday's 34-29 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium.

"It was really obvious there should've been a flag," Engram said, according to NJ.com's Ryan Dunleavy. "Those guys played their hearts out and they are really emotional. We felt like we should've got that call."

On fourth-and-goal from the Philadelphia 6-yard line with 48 seconds remaining, Eli Manning's pass intended for a leaping Engram sailed out of the end zone, however Engram contended that Eagles safety Corey Graham interfered with him in single coverage.

"My arm was kind of held," Engram said. "It was obvious that he kind of arm-barred me. I thought it was definitely defensive pass interference. Fourth down. It was really obvious, but no call."

Despite the Giants' season being long over, the team being ravaged with injuries and the entire Eli Manning debacle being so close in the rearview mirror, New York refused to quit and fought hard against the league-leading Eagles for a 34-29loss.

Manning enjoyed his best game of recent memory, throwing for 434 yards on 37-57 attempts with three touchdowns and an interception. Manning's potential game-winning drive ended in a fourth-and-goal incompletion with less than a minute left. 

Sterling Shepard was Manning's favorite target, catching 11 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Steve Spagnuolo is a longshot to be the Giants' head coach next season, because it's hard to envision John Mara endorsing anything that resembles the status quo. Maybe a few wins would improve his chances. Maybe.

But that's not going to happen if he continues playing ultra-conservative football. What the Giants need -- what Spagnuolo needs -- is to think big and bold.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Whatever good feelings there were inside the Meadowlands at the start of Sunday's game were completely gone by the end of it. The fans that bothered to stick around were either booing or cheering the Cowboys. For the Giants, it was just another miserable loss.

But they've reached the point in their season where they can win for losing, and on Sunday they did. Their 30-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, plus the San Francisco 49ers' 26-16 win in Houston, helped solidify the Giants' position in the 2018 draft, where right now they'd have the second pick.

GEICO SportsNite: Giants 00:04:00
Ralph Vacchiano gets reactions from the Giants after it was announced that Eli Manning would be starting for the Giants on Sunday.

With the news that Eli Manning has once again been named the Giants' starting quarterback, rookie Davis Webb again finds himself on the outside looking in. 

Just one week after ex-coach Ben McAdoo benched Manning in favor of Geno Smith while simultaneously opening up the possibility of Webb receiving playing time to see what the club had in the rookie from Cal.

After McAdoo's firing on Monday, interim coach Steve Spagnuolo reversed course and reinstated Manning as the Giants' top QB with Smith sliding into the backup role once again.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - When Geno Smith survived the firestorm created last week when he replaced Eli Manning as the starting quarterback of the Giants, he never imagined the decision would be reversed one week later.

And he wasn't happy when it was.

"I wasn't," Smith said on Wednesday, one day after he found out that his streak of consecutive games as the Giants starting quarterback would end at one. "Any competitor wouldn't be. To be put in that situation where you get a chance to play and then you're being pulled, but it's not because you played bad so you try to figure out why. But you've got to understand that some things happen in this business, and you've just got to roll with it."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants are doing their best to undo the mess they've created, by giving Eli Manning his starting job back. It's the right thing to do, and the only way to really quell the mob building at their gates.

But what ever happened to their grand plan to take a look at their younger quarterbacks? Is that suddenly just not important anymore?

That's a reminder of just how badly the Giants continue to bungle the whole Manning Mess, and just how lost and dysfunctional this franchise has become. A week ago their season was lost, they were eying a Top 3 draft pick, and they were insistent -- from ownership on down -- that it was time to take a look at the young quarterbacks on their team...

Giants to start Manning again 00:05:03
The DNL panel discusses Giants interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo's decision to start Eli Manning against the Cowboys on Sunday.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The first decision Steve Spagnuolo made as interim coach of the Giants will likely be his biggest, and he didn't really have to give it much thought.

When Spagnuolo decided to reinstate Eli Manning as the starting quarterback of the Giants, he simply went with his "gut."

"All I can tell you is this," Spagnuolo said in his first press conference since taking over for the fired Ben McAdoo. "When John Mara and I talked, one of the first things he asked me was about the quarterback situation and I said, 'John, my gut right now is that Eli should be the starter.'

The DNL panel discusses how the Giants might choose to move forward after the dismissals of Jerry Reese and Ben McAdoo.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: After his streak of 210 consecutive starts at quarterback for the Giants was snapped on Sunday, Eli Manning's streak of consecutive games as the Giants backup quarterback will end at one.

Manning has been given his old starting job back by interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo in the wake of the firing of head coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese -- a development that had been expected since Monday

Manning said on Monday that part of him was "taken away" when he was benched, and that he had told Spagnuolo that he wanted to start this Sunday.

Former Giants center Chris Snee knew his bond with Eli Manning was unwavering after seeing him shaken up on national TV following the news he would be benched. 

Manning's 210 consecutive start streak ended last week when Geno Smith took over the starting role. When Snee -- who was at personnel meetings with the Jaguars where he is a consultant -- saw the video, he admits he was emotional. 

"When I saw the hurt and emotion on his face and in his eyes it triggered something with me and the rest of my teammates," Snee told the NY Post's Paul Schwartz. "These are the bonds we will always have together, the love we have for each other and what we think of Eli. There's a way to go about doing things and that's not the way I would have gone about doing it."
