Giants | Eli Manning continues to turn the ball over
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 09:26:41 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning threw three more interceptions in the team's Week 5 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, and he now leads the league with 12 picks this season. "I honestly believe that he's trying so hard to get us a win, he's almost put too much on himself," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "And I'm not making excuses. There were a couple of those plays that were terrible. The intentional grounding penalties hurt so badly, because not only distance but to lose the down. I think we can make some progress with regard to preventing that. I think we do have to sometimes just cover the ball and go down."
It's been a tough year for the younger Manning brother. Key injuries to the Giants' offensive line hasn't helped at all, and it doesn't look to get better any time soon. Consider dropping Manning for other QB2 options on the waiver wire.
