Eli Manning: New York Giants QB


Eli Manning…

The New York Giants are 5-0, on the surface, things are great. Yet, it’s only the preseason… against the Detroit Lions on Sept 8th, the games count for real. And — the G-Men don’t appear ready offensively for the challenge.

After the win last night, the media took to asking Eli Manning some questions and posted the results all over the blue bird.
 
The following will be what your fearless leader had to say, but first let’s start with Madden 2015′s rendition of this:

Eli Manning: The face…

Eli Manning: Confidence

Eli Manning vs Michael Smith

Here’s something that just showed up on Twitter. It features Michael Smith doing an interview with Eli, talking about beating him in high school football. It’s great stuff:

Eli Manning: Preseason is Over

Tim Hasslebeck weighs in:


Luckily for Giants Nation, no one anywhere has ever cared, or ever will care about anything Tim Hasslebeck has to say. Even the Hasslebeck family tunes out Tim. Just kidding, but not really. That said, the way Eli Manning is performing is definitely something to be concerned about. Props to Tim Hasslebeck for pointing out the obvious. Moving on…

Eli Manning: Conclusion

The Giants QB is not playing well. Sure, team Big Blue went 5-0 in the preseason. However, it wasn’t due to Eli Manning and his namesake arm. To put it gently, Eli Manning played absolutely terrible during the preseason.
 
His footwork was bad, his throws were erratic and he doesn’t look comfortable in Ben McAdoo’s new offense. It’s a very alarming situation wrapped in a feel good 5-0 record, analysts all over are saying negative things about Eli Manning. And — it’s not typical Eli is terrible talk. Eli Manning has thrown 41 passes and only completed 20 for 188 yards.

Five NFL preseason games and those are the stats Eli Manning has to show for it on a team that’s sole mission was to improve on offense. That mission was a failure, Eli almost turned over the ball four times and only scored one touchdown. Simply put: it was awful.
 
The G-Men have a few days to get it together, because the NFL won’t wait for the New York Giants to learn the WCO. No, no, no… 16 games will be played/won/lost whether the New York Giants are ready or not. So, Eli needs to put down the rap microphone, back away from the donuts and study his damn GIANT playbook.
 
The NFL season is here.
