Tom Coughlin took to the airwaves in Jacksonville to critique Big Blue's demotion of the ironman quarterback who started 210 straight games for New York.
Coughlin coached Manning from his rookie year in 2004 through 2015. The pair won two Super Bowls together along the way as Eli became New York's all-time leader in quarterback wins (110), passing yards (50,625) and passing touchdowns (334).
Speculation has swirled around Manning's future with the Giants, with plenty wondering if the 36-year-old signal-caller might ultimately wind up back with Coughlin as a starter for Jacksonville.
Those questions sit out there for a future time, but no questions remain about who Coughlin is siding with in this latest sports drama out of Gotham.
