Giants Are Right to Plan for Future
Giants selected their future quarterback on Friday, and it made perfect sense. Davis Webb who threw 37 touchdown passes at California last season, is official Eli Manning’s heir apparent. Manning has at least two more seasons before in retires, and that’s plenty of time to groom Webb. Webb was disappointed he wasn’t taken higher in the draft, but in a couple of years he’ll realize it was the perfect spot for him.
For people arguing the Giants should have bolstered the offensive line or provided Manning with another weapon for “the now”, consider this: do you realistically think an offensive lineman selected in the 3rd round would be able to start at left tackle in the coming 2017 season? Too many NFL teams fail to prepare for the future without their current start quarterback and end up spending 4, 5, 6 years or maybe even longer searching for the next signal-caller. I applaud New York’s proactive approach.
