The Giants struggled last year with Eli Manning leading the team, as they finished the regular season with a 5-11 record and ended the year with three straight losses.The 38-year-old did had one of his better season’s stats wise as he completed 380 passes for 4,299 yards, while throwing 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, but found himself criticised for his choice of pass.Given Manning’s age the Giants took the off-season to plan for the future and insisted they were looking for a long-term replacement quarterback.Giants head coach Pat Shurmur backed Manning ahead of the draft, as he declared the two-time Super Bowl champion would be the starting quarterback for the 2019 season.

However, after taking Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Shurmur changed his tune slightly, as he suggested the addition of the young man would now foster a quarterback competition.But Manning insists he is not planning on retiring anytime soon and it’s advice his Hall of Famer brother Peyton agrees with."I'm not rushing into retirement, and Peyton's not telling me to rush into it," Manning said."I still love being around the guys and the teammates and playing this game.

“I'm going to play it for as long as I think I can hang with these guys."Manning is entering his 16th season in the NFL and admits he is starting to feel his age off the field but when it comes to putting the pads on he feels young again."In the locker room, I feel their age," Manning said."At 8 o'clock at night, I don't feel their age. I'm ready to go to bed and they are just getting started rocking and rolling.“I can't hang and do everything they can do off the field. But on the field, I still feel like I can still run with them and they keep me young."As for when the two-time Super Bowl MVP will retire, he says it is something he assess after every season.

"You take it year by year," Manning said."I've been blessed going into my 16th year. That's been a blessing in itself.“I love what I'm doing. I love the work that goes into it.“You never know when it's going to be your last year or when it's going to be the end for you, so you try to take advantage of the years you're here and enjoy every moment."
