“I was like ‘I think maybe I can get past these guys,’ so you kind of speed up, run a little harder and at the last second you say ‘Ah, maybe not’ so you just go down,” Manning said. “I don’t know if I would have got by ‘em clean, but that’s kind of why you go down, just so you don’t take that high-low or someone dives at your legs. At that point it was hard to go feet first. I should have taken what I got and went down, that would be playing smarter football.”

It looks as if it will be Mario Manningham and Derek Hagan, who was signed last week, lining up with the starting offense, as the Giants are down to only two healthy receivers from the opening-day roster. The loss of Nicks, the Giants’ leading receiver with 62 catches for 800 yards and nine touchdowns, is immense for a team riding a two-game losing streak.
