PLAYERS: Eli Manning
TEAMS: New York Giants
  You got to love Eli Manning, reality and prevailing perceptions never seem to phase him. The New York Giants 2-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback, has gotten off to a rough start this season, throwing 12 interceptions in the first five games, and unsurprisingly the team has struggled also. But according to a story via Tom Rock of Newsday, Manning still harbors hope that the Giants will recover from their 0-5 start and reach the playoffs due to the poor play of teams in the division so far. “Yeah because (the division is) wide open and obviously we’re two games back right now,” he said. “Obviously we’ve got to play better football and do those things, but we still feel that we can get hot.” “You never know,” Manning said of how things work out. “You never know in this situation, but this is the situation we’re in. We’ve got to play through it and just do whatever it takes.” The way the Giants are playing right now, it doesn’t look like a postseason appearance is in their immediate future, but then again Eli has overcome the odds one too many times for me to completely dismiss their chances.

Coughlin on Eli Manning: There were a couple of those plays that were terrible

Tom Coughlin has never been one to pull any punches and Eli Manning is well aware of that, after a 0-5 start I’m sure the Giants meeting rooms are not a pleasant place to be right now. “I honestly believe that he’s trying so hard to get us a win, he’s almost put too much on himself,” Coughlin said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “He keeps it all pretty much...

The New York Giants signed one of the best fullbacks in the NFL but don’t use him?

Chicago Bears vs New York Giants: Horrible Thursday Night Football

Everyone knows that the ‘Thursday Night Football’ game is a nice link between Monday and Sunday games, but produces cringe-worthy television.

Can Big Blue turn it around? Or is it too late?

Giants vs Bears: Keys to the Game

The Giants play for pride tonight against the Bears.
