Should We Be Worried About Eli?
Through the first two games of the season, the New York Giants are 0-2 and their solid rock in quarterback Eli Manning has thrown a career high 7 interceptions.
“I’m not willing to say worried yet,” said Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com, with Armen Williams on Friday. “I think we should be worried if it happens again with another 3 to 4 interception type game and they lose.
“[Giants offensive coordinator] Kevin Gilbride said if there’s anybody you shouldn’t be worried about it’s Eli Manning because he has an even keel nature to him. But, [Gilbride] said that the interceptions are bothering him and killing him inside. [Eli] is upset about it.”
One doesn’t become a 2x Super Bowl Champion by not being strong mentally. The younger of the Manning brothers has been through much adversity in his career and the non-existent rushing attack and below average offensive line can’t help much either.
Look for Eli to improve this weekend at the Carolina Panthers with less interceptions. Now, the rest of his team? I don’t think anyone is willing to speak for them quite yet.
