Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason thought the New York Giants should have benched Eli Manning after his outing last Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers in which Manning threw five costly interceptions in a 16-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Manning didn't get benched, and in fact, surpassed Boomer on Sunday when his three-yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr. put him in sole possession of 16th place on the all-time career touchdown list when he threw his 248th touchdown of his career, which surpassed Esiason's 247 career touchdowns.
No wonder Esiason wanted Manning benched going forward, huh? Manning then proceeded to tack on two more touchdowns in the Giants 31-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys; the two touchdown passes now put the Giants quarterback at 250 career touchdown passes for his career. Next up for Manning is 15th place, which is former New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Drew Bledsoe with 251.
Following Bledsoe is Dan Fouts at 14 with 254 and then Sonny Jurgensen at 13 with 255 and then Dave Krieg at 12 with 261. In his next game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this coming Sunday, Manning could surpass Bledsoe and within the next two games, could catch or surpass both Fouts and Jurgensen.Read more...
