Mario Manningham Trashes New York Giants


Since arriving in San Francisco, Mario Mannigham has made little snide remarks regarding his former teammates back in New York.  That continued today when Mario opened his mouth again and inserted his foot.

As quoted in a New York Post article, Mannigham was far from being kind to his old colleagues

Oh man, that’s a player’s dream — to go out and beat their old team,’’ Manningham said. “That’s a player’s dream. We play the Dolphins (later this season) and that’s Ted’s (Ted Ginn Jr.) old team. We played Minnesota and play New England and those are Randy (Moss’) old teams. Now my time is up.

“I’m going to go out there and play my butt off, plain and simple. Do I have a grudge? No. But am I motivated? Yes. I’m motivated by this game. Who wouldn’t be motivated by playing their old team?’’

Manningham was further quoted as saying

“I couldn’t ask for a better team, better teammates, a better coaching staff, better equipment managers,’’ Manningham said. “Everyone over here is real good and down to earth.’’

I guess the Giants are not down to earth and we have rude equipment managers. However, maybe our equipment managers are just overworked by polishing the Super Bowl Championship rings every four years or so.

    it’s not 49er style to talk b4 games, or even after. Football Giants, typical of NY teams yak yak yak yak yak. 49ers do their talking on the field. been that way since those 5 super bowl trophies. count ‘em – FIVE!!!

      Giants have 4, right?

    So, in actuality, he said nothing negative about his old team at all.
