Eli Manning throws interceptions like people change their clothes these days. Hey, the New York Giants continue to lose like people change their clothes as well, as they move to 0-6 on the season with a close loss to the Chicago Bears 27-21. It’s safe to say the Giants’ season is over.
The Giants continue to sink, and they have nobody to blame but themselves when they can’t look at their situation, and say, “we are not very good right now.” They are in need of a culture change. I know that sounds odd from a team that just won the Super Bowl in 2011. You have players saying delusional things like Manning thinking that there is nothing wrong with his performance so far this season.
“Nope. That’s the thing. I don’t think I’m playing lousy,” Manning noted via WFAN on Monday. “I think I’m seeing the defenses well. I think I’m throwing the ball accurately. So I feel like I’m in sync, my fundamentals are good, everything’s kind of in place. It’s just a matter of getting in some bad predicaments and not catching many breaks and just getting in some tough spots.”
Being the leader that Manning is, other Giants’ players will look at those statements in the locker room, and it does nothing but invite others not be on their game. Entering the game against the Bears on Thursday night, Manning had eight touchdowns and 12 interceptions. I guess the Giants’ defense should feel good about themselves, and think that they are a top-10 defense in the NFC right?
There is no accountability within the Giants’ organization right now, and until they recognize that it is not okay to make the same mistakes over and over again, maybe Manning will stop throwing interceptions. But until then, continue to watch this train wreck.
