Giants Shouldn’t Bench Eli Manning
… He’s Still ‘Great’

The Giants SHOULDN’T bench Eli Manning — they should block for his ass — ’cause he’s still a great QB … so says the guy who won 2 Super Bowls with the embattled star.
TMZ Sports talked to Brandon Jacobs — Eli’s NYG teammate from 2005-2011 — about the 1-5 Giants’ crappy offense … and whether it’s time to put Manning on the pine.
“I still think right now, I think Eli is great.”
B.J. says Eli’s gotta be used right, ’cause he ain’t the guy to operate a run-and-gun style offense.
“Eli’s a pocket passer. He’s a pocket passer. He’ll sit there and get balls off and put balls in small areas. I’ve seen him do that.”
It’s true … Jacobs was on the field for a bunch of huge moments — including David Tyree‘s “Helmet Catch.”
But, if Manning’s still got it … why do the Giants have the worst record in football?
Most of that blame falls on the NYG struggling O-line.
“I wouldn’t trust the guys in front of me if I was him,” Jacobs says … “Ya ask me, the poor guy’s shell-shocked.”
Block for the man.
