Manning’s most consistent trait is his inconsistency. You never really know how Manning is going to perform. One week he could be amazing and the next week he looks like he is impersonating Mark Sanchez. I mean no disrespect to Manning, who is without a doubt the Giants most important player but his inconsistency cannot be overlooked.
The inconsistency isn’t just a week by week thing, it shows up in his yearly statistics. Take the turnaround he showed this past season. In 2013 he had 18 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions. In 2014 he had 30 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
Another thing that bothers Giants fans is his struggles with his completion percentage. His career average is 59 percent. By most standards a quarterback should complete over 60 percent of his passes. In 5 different seasons, Manning did not even compete at least 58 percent of his passes. Manning corrected the problem in 2014 with a 63.1 percent completion percentage, which must be noted.
Manning’s inconsistency and unhealthy completion percentage are two of his biggest problems. This is without a doubt the bad component of his game.
