Giants to bench Manning, rookie Daniel Jones to start

After two consecutive losses, the New York Giants organization has decided to go into a different way in terms of starting quarterback. Coach Pat Shurmur will let rookie quarterback Daniel Jones to take over for Eli Manning on Sunday.

Manning’s era with the Giants is over after 15 seasons. In those years, Manning led the Giants into two Super Bowl victories. He earned also two Super Bowl MVPs.

In the past two games, the Giants averaged only 15.5 points while giving up 31.5 points per game. Thus, the start was not a fruitful one that triggered a quarterback change.

Manning has completed 63 percent of his passes this season for 556 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and a lost fumble. He’s 22nd out of 32 quarterbacks with a total QBR of 37.5 this season.

“Eli and I spoke this morning,” coach Pat Shurmur said in a release by the team. “I told him that we are making a change and going with Daniel as the starter. I also talked to Daniel.

“Eli was obviously disappointed, as you would expect, but he said he would be what he has always been, a good teammate, and continue to prepare to help this team win games. Daniel understands the challenge at hand, and he will be ready to play on Sunday.”

Giants drafted Jones as the No. 6 overall pick this year coming from Duke. With that move alone, the Giants have anticipated this situation. Jones completed 85.3 percent of his passes and two touchdowns in the preseason.

While the Giants have so many problems, the team wants to fix from the center of it all, the quarterback position.

Gilas vs Italy live: World Cup 2019 Opening Day Updates

Gilas Pilipinas will take the court with Italy in one of the most anticipated basketball games on Saturday, starting time at 7:30 PM local time. Indeed, a crucial game for the winner will have an easier route to advance to the next round. Gilas vs Italy live streaming online is on ESPN5.com. TV Channel of World Cup is on ESPN5

Because of the presence of pre-favorite tournament Serbia in the Group, it would be harder for the loser of this game to find the best way to go deeper to the tournament knowing the fact that Angola is an easier opponent.

Italy’s Marco Belinelli and Danilo Gallinari are the core of the team. It is anticipated that the Italians have enough pieces to neutralize whatever Gilas Pilipinas will be thrown at them. Aside from these two NBA players, Jeff Brooks will reinforce the offense of Italy to dismantle the defense of the Philippines.

Gilas Pilipinas has their best player June Mar Fajardo to match with either Gallinari or Belinelli. However, the speed factor continue to be a question for the Filipino MVP. It is the time for Fajardo to show his worth in the international competition.

Naturalized-player Andray Blatche will play more minutes to maintain the height in matching the much taller Italians. Blatched has been with the team since 2014 World Cup. Thus, his experience and knowledge of the system will help the cause of the Filipinos in advancing into the next round.
