Eli Manning back as New York Giants quarterback after one-game benching

He has tremendous respect for what the man can do, so he was far from upset when the Giants announced Monday that McAdoo had been fired.

"I think it was long overdue", he said.

He also expressed his thanks to the late George Young, the general manager who hired him, and to Ernie Accorsi, who replaced Young and groomed Reese in preparation for taking over the general manager's job before the 2007 season.

"Benching Eli was probably one of the most disrespectful things I've seen in a very long time", the 31-year-old Cruz said.

The Giants have three more home games - all against division opponents - and while it isn't clear who will be the starter for the rest of the season, Manning will be the one to take snaps under center against the Cowboys. "I think what he's done for that organization, what he's done for the city of NY". I didn't understand that. However, McAdoo and Reese's decision to bench Manning for Week 13, ending a 210-consecutive game started streak that began back in 2004, might have altered the quarterback's relationship with the team despite two of the men that were responsible for the move having been shown the door. He might want to go someplace where he could start while proving that he has some solid years left in his Hall-of-Fame-worthy career. "He wants to be out there, and he wants to perform and win".
