    Maybe he's been working out.
    It's those intimidating Gronk-like spikes he does in games.

    If so it's about time. From what I read he's the only player in the NFL who has never done so. Until now apparently.

    LOL!! A message? What would that be? You really think Eli doesn't want to play better or wasn't motivated or had a bad attitude? Eli will play the exact same way as last year unless he has more time and confidence in his line. At his age, you will not see the Eli we witnessed in that playoff game in San Fran where he stood tall in the pocked and took hit after hit. Those days are gone as he's no longer a fearless kid. This version of Eli needs time in the pocket to succeed and a run game...period.

    This head coach still has plenty to prove himself! Be careful where you point your finger when you haven't accomplished anything yourself yet.

    I'm not saying he's not an upgrade to Newhouse. I am just saying we should not expect much from him. He'll be average.
    I'd take average now

    It makes sense he would say what he said. Just because the OL was bad doesn't mean there isn't need for improvement from Eli. Going from Rodgers to Eli is a downgrade. He knows Eli has flaws that need to be improved and he's letting everyone know that he's not settling for inconsistent play whether that be decision making or fundamentals etc.


    “Basically just stay with your man,” cornerback Janoris Jenkins said. “Follow him everywhere you go. Even if he goes to the bathroom, follow him.”

    If the Giants drafted a QB in round 1 this MB would cease to exist.
    I think I'd love it just to see the reaction.
    "Typical Morehead!"..................and he didn't even mean that as a compliment..

I know many of us like to make every excuse in the book for the guy, and that's all well and good, but the bottom line is that the moves by the team over the past month or so all point in the direction that they view Eli's play as substandard last season and are telling him he needs to play better.

    First, the head coach came out and said exactly that himself. He pushed back hard on criticisms of the O line and directly said Eli had to do a better job. This couldn't have been more clear.

    Second, they have not spent any notable money whatsoever on improving the offensive line. Re-signing Jerry and bringing in Fluker for peanuts are not big moves that suggest the line is a priority. They are routine, small-ball moves. They could have signed Whitworth, Okung, or someone like that if they felt the line was the primary problem in the offense last year. They didn't.

    Finally, and this is probably the least important of the three, they have signed Josh Johnson and are about to sign Geno Smith. While neither of these guys will ever play in key game situations if Eli is healthy, it does suggest they are more concerned about the overall position than they have been in recent years.

    Eli was hardly the only problem in the offense last year. Far from it. The line, lack of a running game, and inadequate tight end situations where all problems. They also lacked receiver depth. But anyone who thinks Eli played well and the offensive woes were everyone else's fault BUT his are not seeing their views shared by the head coach and front office of this team. That is the bottom line here.
    you clearly have zero idea of how the Giants regard Eli Manning

    zero

    but you have what the fans think down cold

    the organization and his team mates ... not so much

    have fun
