regardless of competition to Eli, it's important to have decent backups for getting guys reps.
"Manning has a streak of 211 consecutive starts dating back to 2004, so Smith should not expect to play too much.
“We expect that to continue,” Smith said. “I’m not coming aboard expecting anything else. This is definitely an opportunity for me to learn and to get better.
“I want to carry my notepad around and whatever I see Eli doing, whether it’s in the classroom, on the field or off the field, I want to write it down. Because he’s a guy you can model yourself after. If you learn from a guy like that, we can all do a lot better.” "
yeah no this isnt competition for Eli lmfao. Mike is getting a little senile in his old age. Taking longer dead air pauses than usual
What this does give us, is a back up QB that has had a few moments of success running an NFL offense.

He needs a backup, so the Geno acquisition is okay.
he's not competition tho.
What he said was that he felt Mac wanted to create some competition. Which actually coincides with Mac's recent comments about Eli.
Francessa disagreed that this is necessary, and thinks they just need to fix the OL.
Personally, I have no issue with Geno competing for the backup job, nor any issue with Mac trying to push Eli (if that is what he is doing).
