Complex names New York Giants’ Eli Manning the...


Who is the very worst quarterback in the NFL? It’s not Case Keenum. It’s not Jacoby Brissett. It’s not Joe Flacco. And it’s not Andy Dalton or Josh Rosen. Rather, it’s New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning — at least according to Complex, a New York-based media platform for youth culture focusing on fashion and music.

Complex recently decided to dip their toe into the waters of professional sports, and in doing so, jumped right on a faulty narrative and took aim at their own hometown Super Bowl hero, Eli Manning, flat-out calling him the worst quarterback in the entire league.

I have a theory that Eli Manning didn’t like Odell Beckham Jr., because if he did, the Giants would’ve never traded him. The Manning family also handpicked Daniel Jones to be Eli’s heir, and it looks like their plan is going to backfire, because he might be starting sooner rather than later. Jones has looked great to some, decent to most, and serviceable, to say the very least, especially when you compare him to Eli. I’m a Giants fan, and although I do get ownership’s loyalty to him, we have to pull the plug on this relationship eventually. Trading away one of the biggest playmakers and following that asinine move up with taking Jones at No. 6 when—by all accounts—he would’ve been there later is a sign of incompetence. If Danny Jones turns out to be a franchise guy and helps New York win another Super Bowl, then all will be forgiven. But Gettleman and Shurmur have this season to make some type of strides. Giants fans will run them out of town if they’re a sub-500 team once again. —Angel Diaz

Right out of the gate you can’t help but laugh at this assessment. A conspiracy theory that Eli Manning pulled the strings to get Odell Beckham Jr. traded shortly after the Giants had signed him to a massive multi-year contract extension.

If Manning was such a diabolical locker room spy who controlled those at the top, why would he have ever signed off on a long-term contract extension in the first place? It doesn’t quite add up, does it?

The conspiracy continues with the notion that the Manning family — not co-owner John Mara, general manager Dave Gettleman or head coach Pat Shurmur — picked Daniel Jones to eventually replace Eli.

Let that sink in for a second. The Manning family told the Giants organization to pick Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft to run the show after the two-time Super Bowl MVP ultimately decided to hang them up.

Who knew the Mannings were so gangster?

Diaz, who claims he’s a Giants fans, continues by suggesting Jones has been essentially “meh” this preseason, but that should be enough to unseat Manning. It actually begs the question: is this guy watching any of the games? The answer seems obvious because not only has Jones played exceptionally well this preseason, but Manning has played substantially better than Jones has at every turn. It’s an undebatable reality.

We’re going to chalk this up to a less-than-stellar leap into the world of New York sports for Complex and Diaz. The conspiracy theories aside, the analysis was faulty and the argument that Manning is the league’s worst quarterback was completely unsubstantiated.
