Former Giants QB Phil Simms said the 2018 team was built for Eli Manning "to have success" and that it isn't "working out" for the 37-year-old.
When asked by Christopher Russo on Mad Dog Radio if Manning was done as a "big-time starting quarterback," Simms said yes.
"As a big-time starting quarterback? Yes.," he said. "Okay, when you phrase it that way, as a big-time starter he is. ... The Giants built this team for this year for Eli Manning to have success. That's what they did. They re-did basically the whole offensive line. They've signed Odell Beckham Jr. They bring in an offensive coach, the defensive coach. Everything was there. They draft Saquon Barkley, which is a great deal. We saw the kid can be great, we know that. So it's all set up. Sterling Shephard, a good second receiver. Evan Engram, we know he's hurt, but it's all there because we want the quarterback to do well, and it's not working out."
