    Eli Says He "Needed To Play Better"


    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...to-play-better

    Excerpt: "Eli Manning had two of the best games he has ever had this season.

    He set career-highs of 510 yards passing against Tampa Bay and threw for five touchdowns in the season finale against Philadelphia.

    But overall, 2012 was a bit of a step back for Manning. Coming off his best season ever in 2011, Manning failed to throw for 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns for the first time since 2008.

    “I don’t think it was as good as it needed to be,” Manning said on his weekly appearance on WFAN radio of his play this past season. “I think there were a couple of games where (I) wasn’t as on and I needed to play better.”

    As hot as Manning got in the Tampa and Philadelphia wins, he also went ice cold at times.

    He had a three-game touchdown drought in the middle of the season -– the worst stretch since his rookie season which sparked speculation of a tired arm –- and threw for one touchdown or less in 10 games this season.

    Manning admitted that Hakeem Nicks’ knee injury robbed the offense of a lot.

    “Not having Hakeem 100 percent for most of the season really the last 10 weeks can hurt,” Manning said. “He is out there playing hurt and you love that toughness about him.

    “It just made it tough when you are starting a receiver who’s got to win those one-on-one matchups and is your deep threat and playmaker,” Manning continued. “It can be tough to adjust to that and timing was off on a number of things.”

    Not having a consistent third receiving threat also hurt as the Giants struggled to replace Mario Manningham.

    Manning said having the stability of the same head coach and offensive coordinator beside him will help in the offseason." Read more...

    My boss traded AR away for Vick a couple of years in our keeper league (AR now counts as a 10th rounder). That guy has won our league the last two years running.

    Ok I give up ... Eli sucks! $#_($&#_(&(_@&@#(_&*+_$&+$&)#+@)+@

    Actually having Decker and Colston didn't hurt either. My team was friggin stacked. And I started 0-3 as well.
    I won my championship match by 130 + points. (2 week final)

    Apparently you're insane because he's an 11th rounder.

    I read it on the internet, so that means it's true.

    Don't forget that AP was coming off an ACL. He went in rounds 2 or 3 in most FF drafts. No one took him in the first round. I got him near the end of the second round in a 10 team league.
