WATCH: Former Ole Miss QB Eli Manning on the verge of tears as he reacts to Giants benching him

This is hard to watch. It’s not a lot of fun to watch for Ole Miss fans, even though some LSU or Mississippi State faithful may enjoy it.

It’s Eli Manning crying because he got benched for next Sunday’s game against the Raiders. While it may be more about how the Giants are at least trying to show they still care and take some kind of action, it’s also still about Manning’s play and their 2-9 record.

The team also hasn’t made life easy on their quarterback, especially with an offensive weapon like Odell Beckham Jr. out for the season.

“It’s hard. Hard day to handle this but I’ll hang in there and figure it out.”

When asked if he thinks he has started his last game for the Giants, Manning gives the typical “one week at a time line.” Clearly his mind is elsewhere and he would rather be anywhere else than answering questions for the notoriusly tough New York media.

At the age of 36, Manning has to be wondering how many years he has left to play. He has only thrown 14 touchdown passes this season and has 2,411 passing yards when he hasn’t finished a season under 3,000 since 2005.
