Coughlin on Manning: A Couple of Those Plays Were Terrible
The Giants kept it close in the 1st half, but unraveled in the second. It seemed like an mudslide of mental and physical errors just kept piling up. 3 of said mistakes came from QB Eli Manning when he threw 3 INTs. Manning has been known to have bad games in the past, but not 5 in a row.
In a post game interview, head coach Tom Coughlin said Manning was “way, way too good a player” to have thrown 12 interceptions already this season and that the quarterback needed to stop trying to conjure up plays out of thin air.
“I honestly believe that he’s trying so hard to get us a win, he’s almost put too much on himself. He keeps it all pretty much inside. I’m not making excuses. There were a couple of those plays that were terrible.”
Can all the blame be put squarely on Manning’s shoulders, though? No. Not when the offensive line has been as terrible as it’s ever been. But if Eli wants to be considered in the same echelon as Tom Brady and big brother Peyton, he’s going to have to rally his team and try to salvage the season.
