No Hard Feelings
… Over Giants Drafting Eli’s Replacement

“They drafted a really good, young man,” Archie says … “A really good, young player.”
Of course, the Giants just picked up the Duke QB with the No. 6 overall selection in April’s NFL Draft … and that means Eli’s days are officially numbered in NY.
But, Archie says he ain’t mad Eli’s team drafted a guy to replace him … and, in fact, Papa Manning says he actually saw it coming.
“I knew they were probably going to draft a QB,” Archie says.
As for how Eli is handling the situation, Archie tells us the 38-year-old isn’t ready to give up the starting QB reins just yet … saying, “he’s working hard, ready to go.”
By the way, we also asked how Peyton is dealing with rooting for both the Colts and Broncos now that he’s retired … and Archie says he’s finding a way to do it just fine!!!
