But Gettleman knows stats don't tell the whole picture, which is why he and his team will have to evaluate every aspect of the season to see what the best bet is for the future. He was asked about the futures of both Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham needs someone to throw him the ball next year, but Gettleman wouldn't commit to another season of Eli Manning.

Gettleman has no-holds barred talk with Manning

Although Gettleman didn't discuss specifics, it's likely Manning inquired whether Gettleman wanted him back and, if so, how close the reconstruction project is to completion after the Giants missed the playoffs for the sixth time in the seven seasons since they won Super Bowl XLVI. "He's still got it, that part", Gettleman said. "We're in the evaluation process". Gettleman said he provided Manning with honest answers to his questions. "We're trying to build sustained success". That has led to speculation that Manning's future in NY could be in jeopardy. Gettleman didn't give up too much information about where Manning will be next year, but he assured the media that the soon-to-be 38-year-old can still play ball. Unlike previous year, Gettleman would not commit to Manning, but did extol numerous future Hall of Famer's virtues, saying "he can still make all the National Football League throws" and that the offense picked up in the second half of the season after they made major changes to the offensive line.

The veteran general manager also was happy with Pat Shurmur's first season as coach, particularly after a 1-7 start. "That takes brutal honesty and tough decisions".
