My suggestion has nothing to do with Mannings ability. Wouldn't you have rather have not given next years #1 if possible?
Of course you'd rather keep the 1st, but you cant just wait. You had to draft Rivers to get the deal done, you can't take him 4th overall without knowing your getting a deal done. The Giants themselves said if not for the trade they would have moved down so its not a matter of sitting back for 2 months.
Not to mention a team like Cleveland could have taken Rivers and traded for Manning.
Sometimes you just cant wait hoping the price gets lower.
