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.

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.
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.

Hall of Famer
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.
