Eli Manning's career in New York is over, or at least it seems to look that way. If it is over for Eli in the Big Apple questions are already starting to arise about where Manning could and would be suiting up next season. The answer to this could be as simple as following in his brother's footsteps.

Manning part two in Denver?

There are a handful of teams in the NFL who just seem to be one or two players away for making a run at the Super Bowl, and one of them is the Denver Broncos. Let's be honest, the Broncos are much better than their 2017 record would indicate and their defense is still among the best in the league.

Remember folks, this team is just one-plus seasons removed from their Super Bowl 50 championship. The problem in Denver is at quarterback. The Broncos need a quarterback who can play the game at a high level, and right now they don't have that. While any of the three QB’s on the roster could be the future in the Mile High City, the Broncos have the talent to win now. What is the solution? Eli Manning. In comes Manning and all of the sudden the Broncos are once again Riding High in the AFC West. Haven't we seen this movie before?

It was just one year ago that the rumors were swirling that Tony Romo would be the next quarterback in Denver. Romo ended up retiring, and Denver was left with a handful of inexperienced quarterbacks.The team has not changed much on defense since their Super Bowl run two seasons ago and with wideouts like Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, the weapons for Manning are in place.

One more good reason? The desire to prove people wrong. When an athlete is pushed aside before his time, the chip on his shoulder can turn back the clock a year or two.

The streak is over

While NY Giants fans are wondering why Geno Smith would replace Manning, there is a big streak on the line here that NY head coach Ben McAdoo seems okay with throwing down the drain.

Eli Manning had started 210 consecutive games, good for second place all-time. The all-time leader is Brett Favre with 297, followed by Eli Manning’s 210 and Peyton Manning’s 208. At No. 4 is San Diego’s Philip Rivers at 187. Rivers should climb past both the Mannings in the next two seasons.

If McAdoo was replacing Eli with a QB that the team thought was the future, say an early round draft pick, oh I don’t know, like maybe Davis Webb, this may make a bit more sense.

But to replace a future Hall of Fame QB for no legitimate reason for Geno Smith at this particular time would lead fans to believe that McAdoo has an ax to grind with Manning.

Manning has one more year left on his contract, so the possibility of a trade or being waived is very possible.

Maybe this could be a movie coming next fall to the state of Colorado. Manning Part 2: A Denver Broncos story.
