You know what, if nothing else, it's somewhat poetic that the New York Giants managed to piss off literally everyone invested in their mishandling of a situation that didn't have to be anywhere near as difficult as they, themselves, made it. With how quickly their season devolved into full-fledged organizational chaos, it wouldn't have been right if any one fan, player, coach, or executive was left at all satisfied. Through an asinine amount of questionable - if not comedic - (in)decision making, a once proud franchise made it so that literally every member shared in the ungodly amount of blame that goes around when you bench a two-time Super Bowl MVP to invest in the "future" of a 27 year old, soon-to-be free agent backup who has proved - time and time again - that he's nothing more than just that.
The Giants season was lost far before the decided to bench Eli Manning, but in voluntarily putting an end to his starting streak of 200+ games they made sure he wasn't the only remaining person in the locker room without a finger pointed at him. Considering the anarchic culture of a team whose outright implosion was addressed about six weeks later than it should have been, it's actually fitting that its long-time starting quarterback was the last one to catch some shrapnel before the house got mercifully cleaned.
From John Mara, to Jerry Reese, to Ben McAdoo, to an irritable defense, to a depleted offense that was built to get it's quarterback killed from Day 1, to the emotionless face that's run that offense for the last 13 fucking years, to the fans whose hearts were broken by that familiar face getting replaced, to those heartless bastards that thought it was actually the right decision. The dysfunction ran so deep that it absolutely had to leave everyone feeling the detrimental effects. Of course there's no rhyme or reason to cause an irreparable rift between your organization and the player that helped bring it two titles when the inevitability of both Geno Smith's mediocrity and the subsequent shit-canning of your Head Coach and GM is going to have you helplessly doing damage control a week later. Fortunately, inexplicable is the only way to explain the last few months so not one single person being left unscathed by the Giants incompetence serves as a testament to just how incredibly self-inflicted it was.
