New York Giant fans are going to have a lot of questions coming in the next couple days, as news of Eli Manning being cut, has finally surfaced, It is reported that Manning will no longer be behind center coming this fall, at least in a Giants uniform. He was released from the team this afternoon, as what is being called a “choice that had to be made”.

Co-Owner of the Giants John Mara is taking the heat for the cut, but claims that they team needs to move forward.

“He had a few great years with us, but the past is the past, this team needs another Super Bowl. If I was looking for a guy to break the record for most interceptions, I would have easily kept Eli on the squad.” said Mara

“I’m not trying to take away what he did for our team, he was a great QB in his prime, but I’m sick of all our highlight reels being a pouty face of Eli after he throws another pick six.”

It is unclear where Eli will land next, but word is a few teams have their eye on him as a solid back up. As for the quarterback taking Mannings spot that is unclear, but names like Tom Brady, Tim Tebow, and Matt Mcgloin have been in discussion.

It has been a tough past year for the Mannings as both QBs fell short of what they set out to do; win another Super Bowl.

No comment has been made by Eli at this moment, but at some point he will have to face the people, and explain how he feels about the situation. Manning did lock down two Super Bowl rings while playing as a Giant, but even those rings couldn’t save his job today.

His wife Abby told us the following: “Its a real shock to our entire family. Eli did seem slightly off compared to most people but he is still a kind hearted guy and I love him.
