EAST RUTHERFORD Greedy Williams Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning isn’t ready to hand over the job as the New York Giants‘ starting quarterback.With fans and many in the media calling for him to be benched with the Giants off to a second straight 1-7 start, the 37-year-old Manning insisted Monday he wants to play when New York takes the field against the 49ers in San Francisco on Nov. 12.Before Manning spoke, Coach Pat Shurmur said the 15-year veteran remains his starting quarterback, but he will be evaluating everything during the upcoming bye week.“I’ve always been a team player, and do kind of what I’m told,” Manning said. “I expect and want to be the starting quarterback until I’m told differently.”To be honest, Shurmur doesn’t have many good options at quarterback.Alex Tanney has played in one game in his three years in the league, appearing for Tennessee in 2015. Rookie Kyle Lauletta was a fourth-round draft pick out of Richmond. Neither has played a down this season.Making a change would allow the Giants, who are 4-20 over the past 1½ seasons, a chance to evaluate Tanney and Lauletta in a regular-season game.Former coach Ben McAdoo was in a similar position last season and gave veteran Geno Smith a start against Oakland when many felt Dave Webb http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sione-takitaki-jersey , a third-round draft pick in 2017, would get a chance to show his stuff.Manning was not only benched, but his streak of consecutive starts was snapped at 210.The Giants lost the game and McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese were fired days later. Manning returned as the starting quarterback the following week.Manning has hit 215 of 315 passes for 2,377 yards, a completion rate of 68 percent. The problem is the offense is not scoring in the red zone. Manning has eight touchdown passes, with most coming late in the fourth quarter.“I think the answer just comes to execution,” Manning said. “We got good players. There’s some good football. There are some good plays. There’s some big plays, some explosive plays. There’s just some bad football as well. So, it’s just cleaning up the bad stuff.”There is a lot to clean up.The revamped offensive line has struggled. Manning, whose biggest weakness is his lack of mobility Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , has been sacked 31 times, with seven coming in the 20-13 loss to Washington on Sunday.Despite the addition of Saquon Barkley, the running game is ranked among the bottom three. It gained 37 yards against the Redskins.Manning said the offense won’t be changing the system in the bye week. The goal will be to figure out what is working well and what plays can be run either more or differently. The goal will be to keep the Giants in manageable situations and to avoid sacks.“We’ve just got to find ways to be productive, whether you get the ball out quickly or more max protection, or just have a combination of the two, or move in the pocket,” Manning said. “Just things to try to get us out of those situations, because sacks are drive killers. We have playmakers. We got to get them the ball, and get it to them in a timely fashion, and let them make plays.”Shurmur chose his words carefully talking about evaluating the quarterback position.“Yeah http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-seibert-jersey , I think Eli is our quarterback; but I did say, and again, I know you’re all trying to tease a headline out,” Shurmur said. “At this point, Eli is our quarterback, and we are looking at all areas to improve. That’s where it’s at.”The coach said Lauletta and Tanney have been taking snaps all season to be ready to play. He said he has not considered lifting Manning in any game this season.NOTES: Right tackle Chad Wheeler hurt his right foot and ankle. He was in a walking boot Monday, but he hopes to be ready for the 49ers. … With the trading deadline on Tuesday, Shurmur said he will talk with general manager Dave Gettleman. New York traded cornerback Eli Apple and defensive tackle Damon Harrison last week. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — All it took for the Carolina Panthers to land All-Pro defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was a one-year deal worth up to $10.25 million — and a vegan lunch with some future teammates.When some of Carolina’s core players heard general manager Marty Hurney was considering signing the free agent defensive tackle, they organized a lunch at a local vegan restaurant during McCoy’s visit to Charlotte last week knowing the 31-year-old McCoy had given up eating meat five months ago.Luke Kuechly Trysten Hill Jersey , Greg Olsen, Kawann Short, Shaq Thompson, Trai Turner and Christian McCaffrey all attended the lunch, hoping to convince their former division rival to sign with Carolina rather than the Baltimore Ravens or Cleveland Browns, the other two teams who were courting the six-time Pro Bowler.It worked better than the Panthers could have imagined.McCoy said the lunch — and camaraderie he noticed with the players — was a big reason why he signed with the Panthers.“Instant chemistry,” McCoy said Tuesday at an introductory news conference.McCoy said it felt as if he was back in high school again being recruited by Oklahoma.He recognized that the players could have been doing something else, but said it felt special that they showed up to give him a sales pitch and eat at a restaurant they normally wouldn’t visit.“I left that lunch feeling I could fit right in here,” McCoy said.The 31-year-old McCoy has been one of the better players at his position over the past nine seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and is the only NFL defensive tackle with at least six sacks in each of the past six seasons. He has 296 tackles and 54½ sacks during his career.Hurney said in a statement that “it’s great to have Gerald on our side now. We are very familiar with his skillset.”McCoy likes being on the same team as quarterback Cam Newton instead of chasing the former 2015 league MVP around the field twice a year.He’s admired Newton from a distance http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-mcgovern-jersey , calling him “the best escape artist in the league.”McCoy’s son is a big fan of Newton too, always using him to play on Madden football.McCoy isn’t worried about where he will fit in on Carolina’s defensive line, one that will rotate between a three- and four-man front this year.“In this league you have to be a Swiss army knife,” McCoy said. “And (defensive coordinator) Eric Washington has a great plan in place where we can move guys around.”McCoy said he’s a loyal team player.At Oklahoma he supported his school by going to volleyball, basketball and baseball games.That said, he doesn’t seem to have any ill feelings toward the Bucs jettisoning him after nine seasons and quickly giving away his No. 93 jersey to replacement Ndamukong Suh.“Business is business,” McCoy said. In 2012 Peyton Manning was released by the Colts. At that point, my perspective on this league changed. If you can let a person like Peyton Manning go, then anybody can be released. It’s a business.”
