It’s time for the Giants to move on from Eli Manning
The Giants got trounced by the Cowboys in their opener, and Eli Manning was unable to move the ball without star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Eli has been overly reliant on Beckham, and Colin thinks it has masked his steady decline. The Giants rank near the bottom of the league in time of possession, which shows he can’t extend drives. He isn’t accurate, and refuses to push the ball down the field.
Last night, without Beckham, the average Dallas defense looked like the Steel Curtain. In a division with young star quarterbacks like Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz, Eli isn’t taking the Giants anywhere. It’s time to move on.
Ohio State has issues, but they aren’t dead yet
Ohio State looked bad in a home loss to Oklahoma, Saturday night. Their offense couldn’t consistently move the ball, 5th year senior looks like he’s regressed since he arrived in Columbus, and their inexperienced secondary was shredded by Sooner QB Baker Mayfield.
Even though Ohio State looked terrible, Colin pointed out that they can still make the Final Four and win the national championship, despite the loss. The Buckeyes are still ranked 8 and haven’t started Big Ten conference play.
Just last year, Clemson lost to Pitt and should have lost to NC State. They ended up beating Alabama to in the title. Ohio State has an identity crisis on offense, but they aren’t dead yet.
