Speaking on Monday after the firing of head coach Pat Shurmur and a day after walking off the MetLife Stadium field for what is almost certainly the last time, Giants QB Eli Manning reflected and talked about his future.
Manning said it will take a little time for the likely end of his Giants career to "truly sink in," adding that he'll choose to remember the good times. He also said he hasn't yet decided whether he wants to play in 2020.
"I'm gonna think about it, and then just talk to the family and figure out what's best for me and us and what I want to do moving forward," Manning said.
The future for Manning could simply just be retirement, with the 38-year-old saying "everything is an option."
But he doesn't have a firm plan yet.
"No plans, just sit on it and hopefully kind of have that answer on what I want to do and what my next steps are," Manning said. "I don't want to linger around, I want to make it as soon as possible. I'll think upon it a bunch over these next days and weeks and try to figure out what I want to do."
Manning added that he believes he has quality football left in him, saying "I think I can still play."
But if he plays, the odds of it being in New York are slim, with Daniel Jones now entrenched as the Giants' starter and Manning likely not open to returning in a backup role.
"I doubt it," Manning said about that possibility. "Backing up is not real fun."
So this seems like the end for Manning and the Giants -- after 16 years and two Super Bowl wins.
