For the first time since 2004, Eli Manning won’t be under center for the New York Giants this Sunday. On Tuesday, Giants HC Ben McAdoo announced that the former Ole Miss Rebel would be benched in favor of backup QB Geno Smith.

Archie Manning joined Supertalk Mississippi’s “Head 2 Head” on Tuesday to give some insight into how Eli felt about the decision and proved that no one is ever too old to get some fatherly advice; even if you’re a two-time Super Bowl winning QB.

McAdoo offered Eli the chance to start and then be taken out in order to keep his streak of 210 straight starts alive, but Archie shared Eli’s response to that offer.

The Giants offense has been depleted with injuries to wide receivers and plagued by poor offensive line play this season; resulting in Manning being sacked 26 times. In his 14th NFL season, Manning is completing 62% of his passes and has thrown for 14 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

The Giants are eliminated from playoff contention, currently sitting at 2-9. The Manning-less Giants will take on the Oakland Raiders this Sunday on the road.
