ELI starting in New York now

Eli Manning will start at quarterback for the Giants in week eleven.
A bold move, but the Giants offense had stagnated badly the last four weeks. This isn't a move looking towards next season, but one New York believes will give them a spark next week. Keep your fantasy hopes in check for Manning for 2004, with similar numbers to Warner. A solid QB2 at best. Nov. 15 - 2:36 pm et

Manning to start vs. Falcons

By TOM CANAVAN, AP Sports Writer
November 15, 2004


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Eli Manning has replaced Kurt Warner as the New York Giants' starting quarterback.

Coach Tom Coughlin made the move Monday after Warner and the offense struggled for the second consecutive week in a 17-14 loss to the Cardinals in Arizona. The Giants (5-4) have lost three of the last four games after a 4-1 start.

Manning, the top pick in this year's draft and the brother of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, will face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at Giants Stadium.

``He is the future of the New York Giants, it just starts now,'' Coughlin said of Manning, who lost a close training camp competition with Warner for the starting job. ``I really felt the last four games we haven't been playing well offensively. We just need to make a change.''

Coughlin told both players on Monday.

``Kurt is a competitor, a fighter,'' Coughlin said. ``He is not happy, but he is a class guy.''

Manning obviously was thrilled.

``He is excited about the opportunity to compete and lead,'' Coughlin said.

I hope Brenda doesn't go bonkers again.

She's got other things to worry about -- like not trying to look like a man.

Yep...that very same D. The Giants could only score 14 against the Cards. Atlanta D is at least as good or better than Zona. Kerney is
licking his chops already.
