Archie Manning isn’t at all bothered by the fact that the Giants drafted his son Eli’s replacement.  He says GM Dave Gettleman drafted a “really good, young man” and he expected them to draft a quarterback.

The elder Manning added that Eli isn’t ready to hand the team over to the former Duke quarterback just yet.  

Via TMZ Sports:

“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.

Things in New York are a mess right now.  We only expect it to get even messier before the Giants come close to putting together a complete team.
