McAdoo on Tuesday hinted that it might be something "drastic". "Ereck is a young player, he did some good things in the ballgame yesterday". "It's not working so we're going to look to make some more changes this week like we did last week. Somebody's got to win a job to get a job". If he relinquishes those duties, offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan will do it.

The Giants have been thinking about this for a while and took the unusual step of admitting in January that Manning is "probably on the back nine", as General Manager Jerry Reese put it.
"We need this one", Collins said. "So we'll look into that as we move through the offseason".
Manning finished 22-of-32 passing for 239 yards with a touchdown and an interception Monday night. His passer rating, though, was just 86.0. I think he understands that. "I think he's probably on the back nine, but I don't think that's ancient for a quarterback".
