The Giants will be led by a bridge quarterback next season, and if they choose to ride across the Eli Manning Bridge, they should recognize that there is little or no reason to believe there will be a Super Bowl championship waiting for them once they get across it.
You are what your quarterback record says you are, and the records of Manning’s Giants since Super Bowl XLVI: 9-7, 7-9, 6-10, 6-10, 11-5, 3-12, 5-9. It adds up to 47-62. And 0-1 in the playoffs.
