The New York Giants never had a chance to make a comeback against the Atlanta Falcons on the road last Sunday. The simple, and usually comforting reality surrounding this team is that it will live and die by the right arm of quarterback Eli Manning. When Manning is on, there are very few teams around the league that can beat the Giants. However, when Eli plays like he did last Sunday, the Giants are incapable of overcoming Eli’s blunders. Unfortunately, this season has proven that the two-time Super Bowl MVP is far from the invincible gunslinger that many have made him out to be. Eli Manning has flaws in his game. His decision making can be questionable, as he frequently attempts to squeeze throws through mind-numbingly tight windows. Sometimes he completes them and he looks like the second-coming of Joe Montana, while other times he appears to be dumfounded at his inability to complete passes. Manning is an incredible talent with the ability to put the team on his shoulders and win football
