Is Finding a Young Quarterback a Good Idea For the New York Giants?
The New York Giants haven’t publicly spoke about the quarterback position. After all, they are pretty set at that position with two-time Super Bowl MVP QB Eli Manning. Manning hasn’t missed a start since becoming the Giants’ starter in the middle of his 2004 rookie season, becoming the new iron man in the game after his brother QB Peyton Manning missed all of the 2011 season.
However, the Giants ought to think about who will back him up in the near future. The Giants should definitely think about drafting a quarterback in this year’s draft. Manning is only 32 years old, so he has a good amount of years left in him. However, who’s to say that he’ll continue his streak for his entire career?
If he were to get hurt and have to miss an extended amount of games, the Giants are screwed. With all due respect to QB David Carr, he’s nowhere close to the quarterback Manning is. The Giants have a lot of talent on the team, but they are easily a 3-13 or 4-12 football team without Manning behind center.
The New England Patriots drafted QB Ryan Mallett out of Arkansas in the 2011 NFL Draft. Mallett was supposed to be a first-rounder, but character problems pushed his draft stock further down. However, it was smart of the Patriots to draft him. Incumbent QB Tom Brady is still one of the best in the league, but they still need a quality backup or someone Brady can hand the keys to down the road.
The Green Bay Packers drafted QB Aaron Rodgers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. They already had Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre as the starting quarterback, so Rodgers had to wait his turn. However, he learned enough from Favre and the game to succeed once he became the starter.
Manning’s job will not be threatened. The Giants need to think about it sooner than later because they could be looking at an unexpected disastrous season.
