    It's interesting to think back to EA's scouting report on Eli: Terrible OL(could not trust LT), no run game, no tight end, and not a lot of help from the coaching staff.

    The same exact issues that EA witnessed while he watched Eli succeed are the same exact reasons why he is not playing well now.

    Go figure.

If he doesn't its a sack.

    even if its not practiced, all QBs still have some sort of system that correlates with this. they have a mental clock that will signal to them to get rid of the ball or scramble when necessary.

    now, the first 4 or 5 weeks, the OL was allowing free pass rushers to get home on the reg. Last year, Eli was already one of the QBs with least amount of avg time before being sacked. ANd the OL only got worse the first 5 games or so. I think that weighs heavily on Eli and still does. the memory of those games has already been ingrained into his psyche. Good news is, the OL has gradually gotten better in the sense Eli has a better idea that free rushers arent going to be coming in free untouched. he def does look like hes operating under that mental clock he would have had the first 5 games or so, and not the past 3 games.

    and the comment about it looking like hes not even having any fun is dead on accurate imo. he really looks like hes been miserable this entire year. i know we've played horribly but still it doesnt seem like he's right just yet. it absolutely needs to come by GB.

    and fwiw, this isnt something i'm like blaming eli for or discrediting him over. dudes never missed a start and has played through some serious hits. wish we would have given him a better OL years ago tho.
    You are right. Eli Manning does seem like he is not happy. Maybe there are some off the field issues he may be dealing with that is effecting him.

    Yeah, I already saw this happening. I'm more interested in this quote

    When Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was asked Thursday if he sees Manning acting haunted by the rush, Gilbride said, "Uh -- no. No I haven't. I mean, when the pressure gets to him, when they are around him, it obviously affects him, because it affects everybody.

    "But is he reacting unnecessarily or imagining things? I don't think emotionally or mentally it's affecting him at all. I just know he was disappointed because he felt, just like we all did, that there were opportunities we left out there Sunday out on the field."

    My God, is his stupidity never ending? Yeah, you know he's disappointed buddy, but maybe you call some better plays that get the ball out faster so he doesn't get killed.

    Poor Eli

    You do get the sense that Eli's fed up with the same **** happening over and over

    Eli to Tracy Porter:



    "ugh, not again..."

    Perfect example of a QB ruined.

    Yeah, he finally is (or was until Coughlin called for more long passes), only took 6 games of Eli getting murdered. It's obvious they have never practiced that part of the game to have something to fall back on. Many seasons there was a game here and there that we could have used the change of pace, but this year the switch was mandatory and the team was not prepared.

    Players can not execute plays they were not made to practice and since this part of the game had barely been used in the past, it should have been honed in on heavily since the O-line has been nowhere top notch for a while.

    i dont think its that bad. he just sort of always took risks throwing it. some years it just leads to more ints. some he gets luckier and our Rec gets it or he gets a PI.
