‘Overrated’ Eli Manning doesn’t scare NFL defenses

Eli Manning’s future as a starting quarterback may be up in the air, but Giants decision-makers may want to peruse a new poll released this week.

Eighty-five defensive players from across the NFL gave their opinions to The Athletic on a wide variety of quarterback questions, but one in particular should be of interest to the Giants and their fans.

Asked who the most overrated quarterback in the league is, 10 percent of respondents named Manning, who finished second to only Kirk Cousins (13 percent).

This is not the first time the two-time Super Bowl MVP has been mentioned among the ranks of the overrated.
