Eli Manning is back in the starting lineup for the New York Giants after head coach Ben McAdoo was shown the door.
Giants are going back to Eli Manning as their starting quarterback, per @JordanRaanan.

This debacle has been unreal to watch unfold. It’s pretty much the main thing everybody in the NFL world is talking about, and it should be the main thing.
What McAdoo did was completely unacceptable. Manning brought two Super Bowls to New York, and then he was relegated to the bench like a throwaway quarterback. Absolutely embarrassing for the whole franchise.
Manning is a legend, and McAdoo is a complete joke. In 20 years absolutely nobody is going to remember or honestly believe McAdoo had any positive impact in New York. He’ll be remembered as a mistake that was quickly done away with.
However, Manning will always be remembered for his incredible accomplishments on the football field. You hate to see what happened to him, but at least he’s coming back to play. The same can’t be said for McAdoo and coaching.
