Overview: The Giants' short and long term plans at QB revolve around the 32 year-old Manning, their two-time Super Bowl MVP stalwart who has started 145 consecutive games since becoming the starter in 2004. The objective is to keep Eli healthy and upright. If they can't, and Manning is finally knocked out of the lineup, the Giants have made some moves during the offseason to safeguard themselves.
The team is bringing back veteran David Carr for what could be his final season in Blue. Carr has served as Eli's primary backup four of the past five seasons (he played for the 49ers in 2010) and has not started an NFL game since 2007 when he was with Carolina.
