Pat Shurmur doesn’t want to tease a change at quarterback for the New York Giants.

The head coach made that clear both Sunday after the team’s loss to the Washington Redskins and again on Monday. “I think Eli is our quarterback; but I did say New York Giants Hoodie , and again, I know you’re all trying to tease a headline out. At this point, Eli is our quarterback, and we are looking at all areas to improve,” Shurmur said on Monday. “That’s where it’s at.”Thing is, Shurmur doesn’t really have to say Manning isn’t part of the future. It’s apparent.Whether Eli Manning is the starter Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers or not doesn’t really matter. He may start a few more games as the Giants assess the readiness of rookie Kyle Lauletta, but the reality of it is the Eli Manning Era is really already over for the Giants. He is no longer their unquestioned franchise quarterback. He isn’t part of the future the Giants’ recent actions are admitting they know they have to lay the groundwork for. He won’t be the quarterback if and when the Giants come out the other side of rebuild they have to undertake.Manning is now part of a championship past that was far too long ago, a last link to the glory days. Even if he continues to start games for a bit, he is only a placeholder until the Giants begin the process of trying to find their next franchise quarterback.There are fans who who have been done with Manning and thought that process should have started years ago. I have never been one of those. I have never believed Manning was on the level of his brother Peyton, of Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre or other all-time great quarterbacks.I have, however, always believed Manning was a quarterback capable of winning — and that it wasn’t his fault that the Giants didn’t do more of it in recent years. I have always believed that the organization, with bad personnel and coaching decisions, let Manning down. Not the other way around. You know that co-owner John Mara wanted to make it work one last time with the guy who remains the best quarterback the franchise has ever had. So did first-year GM Dave Gettleman, part of the Giants’ organization when Manning won two Super Bowl MVP trophies. Coach Pat Shurmur, too. In his first stint as a head coach, Shurmur went 9-23 with the Cleveland Browns. Think he was signing on with the Giants and relishing the idea of presiding over a long-term tear down and rebuild? He signed on thinking/hoping Manning had enough left to be the quarterback for a few seasons yet.Remember Shurmur’s “I think he’s got years left” comment during his introductory press conference? In that same press conference Mara had said Manning as the starter is “something that we wanted.”Manning wanted nothing more than to reward that faith from the organization. This is what he told me during a 1-on-1 interview last summer:“It means a lot that vote of confidence in me that they still believe I can perform at a high level and win games and win championships for this organization and I want to prove them correct. I’m on a mission to continue to play well, play at a high level Youth Customized New York Giants Jerseys , get this team going and know that I can get this team back in the right direction and win a lot of games.”It isn’t, however, working. At 1-7 and with just four victories in their last 24 games the Giants are, obviously, not winning. This mess is not all Manning’s fault. It isn’t his fault that Evan Engram dropped a pass Sunday on fourth-and-3 that would have given the Giants a first down in a one-score game. Or that Sterling Shepard couldn’t hold a nicely thrown deep ball. Or that the offensive line is awful. Or that the defense can’t rush the passer or stop giving up back-breaking big plays. Or that the Giants drafted horribly during Jerry Reese’s final few seasons as GM. Of that Gettleman’s free agent moves have flopped.Still, Manning has been part of the problem. He’s missed some throws he should have made this season. A 15-year veteran can’t mis-read coverages and throw crushing red zone interceptions. Former quarterbacks — and ex-teammates who have won rings with him and love him — tell you they don’t like what they see. It’s not the arm strength — he still has enough. It’s not even the lack of mobility — he’s succeeded in the past while being a stationary target. As I’ve said before, it looks like the problem is in his head. It is the accumulation of hits and losses from playing behind bad offensive lines and for bad teams. Here is what I wrote Monday in “Kudos & Wet Willies.”The bottom line is that the Giants have to begin preparing for the future — and they really have already begun doing that. It’s a future Manning, 37 and beyond his best years, won’t be a part of. You just can’t rebuild around a 37-year-old quarterback who isn’t going to get more mobile or gain arm strength.Manning said Monday that “I expect and want to be the starting quarterback until I’m told differently.”However many games that is for — zero, one, three, eight — it’s not going to long enough for Manning to get the Giants back to the glorious heights he took them to once upon a time. That job will belong to someone else.Will Kyle Lauletta be that future?That is impossible to predict. I like the young man, with whom I’ve had several good conversations dating back to well before the Giants made him their fourth-round pick. I am optimistic that Lauletta has a number of traits — intelligence, scheme versatility, accuracy, anticipation, escapability — that should keep him in the NFL for a long time.Do I know for sure that those traits can make him a franchise quarterback at the NFL level? I have no idea. Truth is, it’s probably a stretch to think so. Lauletta is still a fourth-round pick out of an FCS school. As much as I like the kid, fourth-round picks out of FCS schools don’t usually turn into top-tier quarterbacks who can win Super Bowls.The Giants will hope Lauletta becomes the exception. Shoot, so will I. If that happens www.giantsauthorizedshops.com , the rebuild of the Giants will take less time. The “were the Giants right to bypass Sam Darnold” questions will also be answered.Maybe Lauletta isn’t the guy. Maybe that guy is in the 2019 draft class. Or the 2020 draft class. Or in eighth grade somewhere right now. The process of finding out who the guy is going to be, though, starts with Lauletta.As much, though, as fans are ready for the future to begin the Giants want — no, need — to be fair to Lauletta. They need to make sure he is ready — that he has a chance to succeed — before they put him out there. Maybe that will be against the 49ers, maybe a bit farther down the line. We will see. Shurmur said Monday that Lauletta “is getting reps” in practice. What kind of reps? We don’t know. Scout team? First team? Second team? What we do know is that the Giants have no choice but to look to the future. And it’s a future that the best quarterback who has ever played for the franchise won’t be a part of.Giants news, 9/27: Drew Brees wants to play until he’s 45, Rhett Ellison’s Mark Bavaro “aura,” more New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is playing as well, maybe better than he ever has at the age of 39. He said Wednesday that he has no plans to stop playing for a while.“I think I can do it until 45. I’m not telling you I am. I think I’ll walk away from this game before that, or until about 32 teams tell me that I can’t play anymore, and when I do, it’ll be because I just want to spend more time with my family, with my kids, and I’m ready for the next chapter, but I’m not there yet,” Brees said. “I enjoy doing what I’m doing. I feel like we have a great opportunity here in New Orleans with our team, and I just still love it. I love the locker room, I love the grind New York Giants Womens T-Shirt , and I love the challenges.”Shurmur: Rhett Ellison has Mark Bavaro-esque “aura”When it comes to Giants tight ends the highest compliment you can pay is to compare one to Mark Bavaro. Giants coach Pat Shurmur did just that on Wednesday when talking about Rhett Ellison.“He epitomizes a player that you want on your team. He’s very good at what he does, he can line up anywhere, he finds a way to make plays. Some guys just have a knack for that. He finds a way to make plays. Very trustworthy and very tough, and he’s wired like a football player, and that is what you’re looking for,” Shurmur said. “I made the analogy, and this probably isn’t fair because I don’t know Mark Bavaro that well, but I sensed the same kind of aura when I met him the other night – just a tough guy that’s going to do what he’s asked and let the chips fall. That’s what Rhett is.”Saquon Barkley on the Saints’ league-leading run defenseBarkley has surpassed 100 total yards of offense in each of his first three career games.“They definitely pop out on tape. They’re fast, they’re a physical team. They’ve got some great linebackers over there, great defensive linemen over there. We’ve faced great defenses before. We got to continue to just work on ourselves, and continue to come in every single day and work hard. I think everything else will take care of itself.”Alec Ogletree on facing Drew BreesThe linebacker and defensive co-captain knows what the Giants will be up against on Sunday.“He’s going to be a Hall of Fame quarterback one day. Well he really is a Hall of Fame quarterback, he’s going to have a gold jacket one day, but like you said, he’s done it for a long time and everybody says pretty much the same thing, you got to get in his face, try to limit his vision, but at the same time he has good pocket presence and he knows how to work in the pocket,” Ogletree said. “Just presents a challenge for us to try to go out there and do that and get in his face and try to block his vision a little bit.”Around the Inter-GooglePayton: Roughing rule about intentional body weight - NFL.comGrading all 32 first rounders after Week 3 | NFL Analysis | Pro Football FocusLike Saquon Barkley, Saints running back Alvin Kamara can do it all | Newsday
