New York Giants

Eli Manning‘s future as the starting quarterback of the Giants has been a big topic of conversation for most of the last two years and it remains one in the first days of 2019 as well. General Manager Dave Gettleman is aware of that and he made mention of a “no holds barred” conversation with Manning while making introductory remarks at his Wednesday morning press conference. Gettleman didn’t divulge the details of that conversation, but said that the evaluation process is underway and that he will not commit to anything regarding the 2019 season at the moment.

Things definitely didn't go the way Pat Shurmur wanted in his first season as New York Giants coach. The Giants (5-11) finished last in the NFC East for the second straight year. For general manager Dave Gettleman, it starts with what to do with two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, linebacker Olivier Vernon, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins, who finished the season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury that required surgery.

The New York Giants only had to get through one more week without negative headlines before their embarrassing 2018 season concluded. Unfortunately, rookie wide receiver Jawill Davis was placed on the injured reserve list with a dislocated patella — more commonly known as the kneecap — which happened while he was dancing in the locker room, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. #Giants WR Jawill Davis, placed on Injured Reserve a few minutes ago, actually suffered a dislocated patella while dancing in the locker room, sources say.

Odell Beckham Jr will have a chip on his shoulder going into the 2019 NFL season after New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur confirmed his year was over. The Giants' star wide receiver has been struggling with a quadriceps issue and will miss New York's final regular season game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, the coach revealed on Friday. Beckham has already missed three straight games but insists this frustrating end to 2018 - in which the 5-10 Giants have fallen well short of the playoffs - will motivate him come the next campaign.

For most of the season, New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley looked like an easy pick for offensive rookie of the year. The second overall pick of the NFL draft might get edged out by the first pick again, as Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield could pass Barkley. The 2018 NFL draft looks like a really good one, and the players at the top have lived up to expectation.

Eli Manning says he has not thought about the prospect that he could play his final game for the New York Giants on Sunday. Manning turns 38 next week, an age when most quarterbacks not named Tom Brady have already retired. There has been talk the Giants might bring the veteran back for one more year, but it remains to be seen whether he will return.

While the win total has increased slightly after a fiasco of a 2017 season, Pat Shurmur sees good things on the horizon for the New York Giants. It was the third time this season Shurmur has seen the Giants lose a road game when the opposition scored the deciding points in the final minute. ''We've won some games, but we haven't won enough, and so that's the growth that has to take place, and for those of us that aren't very patient, it's a painful process until we get to that point where we're winning all of these games at the end - not just a few of them, but all of them,'' Shurmur said Monday, a day after the Giants squandered an early 14-0 lead.

New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur watched his team go toe to toe with a playoff contender Sunday. The defense drew two penalties, helping the Indianapolis Colts continue to march downfield. ''You win or you lose and we didn't win,'' coach Pat Shurmur said.

Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. isn't looking to shut down his season because the New York Giants are eliminated from playoff contention. The NFL's highest-paid receiver did not practice on either Wednesday or Thursday, which seems to indicate he will not play Sunday when the Giants (5-9) face the Colts (8-6) in Indianapolis. Surprisingly, Beckham played the following week against the Bears and threw and caught a touchdown pass in the Giants' 30-27 win in overtime.

Aldrick Rosas came to the New York Giants' training camp as somewhat of a long shot to keep his job as placekicker. The former NAIA player struggled in his rookie season, hitting 18 of 25 field goals, while missing three of 23 extra points. Upsetting the coaching staff: his occasional tendency to have one of his kickoffs go out of bounds, allowing opponents to start drives at their 40-yard line.
