that the team needs to move on from quarterback Eli Manning in order to find the consistent success that has eluded them since they beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012.While there’s an acknowledgement that Manning won’t be able to play forever Michael Strahan Jerseys 2019 , Giants co-owner John Mara, General Manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur have all been adamant that Manning is not holding the Giants back right now. You can add running back Saquon Barkley to that list.Barkley was asked by Taylor Rooks of if he is bothered by criticism of Manning.“Yeah, it bothers me. I’m not going to lie because it’s not his fault,” Barkley said. “He’s not the reason why. We love to put the blame on one person, but it takes 11 men, a team and an organization all together to win.”Anyone who has watched the Giants stumble to eight wins over the last two seasons will tell you that there’s been plenty wrong with the team. Needing help elsewhere and needing better quarterback play aren’t mutually exclusive, however, and the Giants will likely have to address all of it if they are going to find their way to a better place in the standings. EAST RUTHERFORD White Will Hernandez Jerseys , N.J. (AP) — In a surprising move, the New York Giants released backup quarterback Davis Webb on Sunday.That leaves inexperienced Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney behind Eli Manning who, of course, never has missed a game because of injury in his career.New York also released vested veterans guard John Jerry and defensive back William Gay, and waived tight end Jerell Adams, wide receiver Hunter Sharp and defensive tackle Josh Banks.That made room for defensive end Mario Edwards, Jr., wide receiver Kaelin Clay and center Spencer Pulley. They added defensive backs Antonio Hamilton Will Hernandez Jerseys 2019 , Mike Jordan and Kamrin Moore to a secondary that has been spotty. All were picked up off waivers.Webb, a 2017 third-round draft choice who did not play in a regular-season game, was expected to be Manning’s backup. Webb had an inconsistent performance in three preseason games, but was included on the roster when cuts to the NFL roster maximum of 53 were made Saturday.Jerry started every game for the Giants the previous two seasons, and his 39 consecutive starts made for the Giants’ longest active streak at the end of the 2017 season.Gay, a 12-year veteran, had two five-year stints with the Pittsburgh Steelers sandwiched around a single season with the Arizona Cardinals. He has played in 176 consecutive regular-season games, plus 15 postseason contests.Edwards played the previous three seasons for the Raiders White Lorenzo Carter Jerseys , who selected him 35th overall in the 2015 draft. He has played in 30 regular-season games with 24 starts, with 68 tackles (48 solo), 5 1-2 sacks, three forced fumbles and three passes defensed.NOTES: The Giants signed eight players to their practice squad, all of whom they released Saturday: linebackers Avery Moss and Calvin Munson;wide receivers Alonzo Russell and Jawill Davis; tight end Garrett Dickerson; defensive back Grant Haley; running back Jhurell Pressley; and tackle Victor Salako.
