The New York Giants' struggles on the field have continued to mount on the field this season, and they have seen themselves fall to one of the worst records in the league through the first six weeks of the season.

It has led to growing chatter about quarterback Eli Manning's job security as the starter as he has been at the forefront of all these issues under center. With that in mind, former Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has voiced during an interview with TMZ Sports that he believes Manning should remain the starter unless there are some drastic changes to the offensive game plan.

“I still think right now, I think Eli is great unless they are trying to have a run n' gun offense. If that's what the Giants are trying to do all of that Eli's a pocket passer. He's a pocket passer. He'll sit there and get balls off and put balls in small areas. I've seen him do that. Unless the Giants are trying to open up the offense with spreads, jets sweeps, and RPOs then I would say Eli is not the guy. Until they figure out what kind of offense they are Eli is my guy.”

There simply hasn't been any stable level of production from Manning throughout this season that has seen him head one of the least productive offenses in the league that ranks 28th in the league with 19.8 points per game while holding the 17th-best passing attack while posting less than 20 four times this year.

Eli Manning may currently be fourth in the league with 1,662 passing yards and seventh with a 68.7 percent completion rate, it hasn't exactly translated to the team consistently getting in the win column. Instead, he has had persistent issues in helping lead the team to scoring drives while he has struggled to throw the ball down the field while receiving often times porous blocking from his offensive line.

Head coach Pat Shurmur has already voiced that he has not considered benching Manning, which shows that the team still has much confidence in getting the job done. It's on his shoulders along with the play of the offensive line to step it up if the Giants have any hope of contending for the playoffs this season.
