Brandon Marshall-Led Bears Expose Giants, Interception-Happy Eli Manning
Chicago Bears fans will tell you that the biggest story coming out of Thursday’s game was the fact that Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler showed once again why they are easily one of the best quarterback-to-wide-receiver combinations in the NFL. However, the Bears’ success is hardly a bigger story than Eli Manning, who’s turning in one of the worst seasons of his 10-year career.
In fact, Manning has been so ineffective that he’s on pace to set a New York Giants‘ record with over 25 interceptions in single season. Not to mention, the Giants are 0-6 for the first time in franchise history as the “Fire Tom Coughlin” chants are getting louder and louder. Manning gladly took the honor of being called an “Elite” quarterback when he helped the Giants win two Super Bowls, so it’s only fair that he take a few media hits on the chin now that New York finds itself in the cellar of the NFC East.
With Peyton Manning having a historically great season and Eli Manning on pace to have a historically awful 2013 campaign, you have to wonder if the “Manning Super Bowl” will ever happen — it’s safe to say that we all have our doubts.
