Kurt Warner thinks Eli Manning can still play, but might need new team that’s a ‘better fit’
Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner thinks quarterback Eli Manning still has a few years left to play but it might be best that he moves on from the New York Giants.
Warner thinks he is still a good quarterback but they need a team that will give him a good offensive line and plays to his skill set and if the Giants can’t do that, it might be time to follow in his older brothers footsteps and go to a different team.
“I don’t think the question is whether Eli can still play,” Hall of Fame quarterback and current NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner said Wednesday via NJ.com. “I think the bottom line is, can they still play the way that fits his skill-set. If they can, I believe he can play for a couple more years if he wants to. But, if they’re not going to play that way, and they can’t protect him the way that they did earlier in his career, maybe it’s time to go somewhere like his brother did, and find a better fit, so he can still have success.”
It will be interesting to see what the Giants decide to do with Manning this offseason because it’s not a sure thing the team even wants him back.
General Manager Dave Gettleman didn’t commit to Manning being the starting quarterback at the beginning of next season, instead saying he will do what’s in the best interest of the team.
It’s going to be an interesting offseason for the Giants and maybe we did see the last of him in the Giants uniform.
