Billboard Blasting The New York Giants For Benching Eli Manning Spotted Near MetLife Stadium (PIC)
This week saw the end of Eli Manning’s streak of 210 consecutive regular-season starts after the team decided to reverse course and bench him in favor of backup QB Geno Smith. It was no doubt an emotional moment as Manning was fighting back tears while talking to reporters about the decision earlier this week.
With sadness comes a bunch of anger, and Giants fans are clearly not happy. Having a terrible season is one thing, but trying to convince a fan base that Geno Smith is better for this team than Eli is a whole other level of disrespect.
Along with creating a petition to get head coach Ben McAdoo fired, Giants fans have also bought a billboard near MetLife Stadium to show their displeasure with the franchise for benching a two-time Super Bowl champ.
