Excerpt: "New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) quarterback Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/) is in a slump. He may not want to call it that, Tom Coughlin (http://www.giants101.com/tag/tom-coughlin/) may not want to call it that, and his teammates may not want to call it that, but when it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and throws like a duck … it's a slump. Still, Big Blue's fearless leader claims he's not worried about his struggles or the teams' struggles in recent weeks … even after a 31-13 beatdown at the hands of the lowly Cincinnati Bengals (http://www.giants101.com/2012/11/11/second-half-swoon-in-full-effect-as-new-york-giants-get-dominated-by-cincinnati-bengals-31-13/).


"I’m not worried. Every year we have gone through stretches where we didn’t play our best football (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/) and we were still able to bounce back. That’s what is going on right now," Manning said. "I have to start playing better personally and we need to as a group as well. We still have good players and a good scheme. We just have to put it together better."



Statistically, this is one of the worst stretches of Manning's career. In fact, there are any number of statistics that can be pointed out that not only back up that statement, but back up the Giants' overall futility in recent weeks. Moreover, it's doing little to shed the stigma of them being a very bad team in both November and the second half of the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) season under head coachTom Coughlin (http://www.giants101.com/tag/tom-coughlin/)."

true but do you really expect him to say that they're panicking?

I not only don't expect him to say it, I don't expect him to be. He just needs to stay calm and figure out what's going on. Worrying never solves problems

Do you really think that they're panicking?The only time they will panic is when their paychecks do not clear.

He never seems to panic which makes him a great fit for this team, but its so what anyone would say. Not worried? I don't know. Yesterday was pretty pathetic and also probably the easiest opponent they will face the rest of the way not that the Bengals are a bad team. They do have this happen every year, but it has not worked more than it has. I know they can't win it every year, and the two Super Bowls they won where great, but we also can't expect every year to be 2007 or last.

Eli should be worried that coughlin and his boneheaded diehl crap will get him hurt.

Do you really think that they're panicking?of course they shouldn't but do you really think they feel 100% about themselves?

This team lacks any sense of urgency... even when things are going well early in the season... they just rest on the fact they're SB Champs and have gone through this before when faced with adversity. While it's okay to use the past as a confidence booster, if they had a sense of urgency, alot of these 4th quarter panic attacks would be avoided since we'd be going all out all game.

I suppose I am the only one who thinks Eli and the rest of the team should be plenty worried.
I guess he thinks they can just turn it back on like a switch. Well guess what....the NFL is a hell of a tough league. Every team has great athletes and to dismiss the Giants poor play, or at least not to express any real concern for their bad play is completely ridiculous, and a recipe to be passed like we were standing still by the rest of the league.
He better be worried because despite what happened last year, this team could spiral downward. That has ALSO happened to us (see 2006 and 2009).

Be worried Eli. Be plenty worried.

I want you to acknowledge that there is plenty wrong and I want a determined effort to fix it.

he acknowledges there is something wrong but he is not worried they cant fix it.
