Eli Manning says he deserves 'some criticism' after rough start to season

Eli Manning says he deserves 'some criticism' after rough start to season”

Coach Ben McAdoo is considering giving up play-calling duties, there may be an offensive line shakeup, and Perkins could get benched. Since 2007 there have been 83 teams to start their season 0-2, and just nine of them have turned their season around to make the postseason. Through two games, the Giants have scored just 13 points and are 0-2. "Coach McAdoo knows I can handle it".

But the play that seemed to grate on McAdoo the most after the defeat was a penalty for delay of game in the third quarter. Flowers allowed three sacks and Marshall dropped a key pass in the fourth quarter of a one-score game. The most sacks Manning has endured in a season is 39, in 2013, the season the Giants lost their first six games en route to a 7-9 finish. He has admirably handled criticism before. "Quarterback and the center need to be on the same page there".

"Did I single [Manning] out?" I want to be coached, ' " Manning said. If things don't get better in a hurry, there will likely be major changes throughout the organization next offseason.

"Because we have a veteran quarterback who has played a lot of football and I expect us to get the ball snapped", McAdoo said, explaining why he didn't call a timeout with the play clock winding.

"Again, I thought Ereck did some good things in the ball game last night", McAdoo said.

"Sloppy quarterback play", McAdoo said via Jordan Raanan for ESPN.com. That's his philosophy for handling the varied personalities.

The harsh reality of the situation in NY is that the Giants have dug themselves the type of hole that few teams have ever gotten out of. "You're a quarterback in the National Football League, there's gonna be tough days, there's gonna be tough times, you've gotta be able to handle the fire on game day and afterward, that's just part of the deal".

Eli did make a critical mistake in the game though that had nothing to do with the Lion's physicality.

While Manning took some blame after the game, Flowers appears to remain off-limits. "Ereck is a young player".

Reese left Giants fans scratching their heads when he took a tight end, a defensive tackle, and a quarterback with the first three selections in the 2017 NFL Draft, and the decision to skip on offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk and Cam Robinson surely looks like a mistake at this point. Coach McAdoo and I have a great relationship. (When) all those guys (Steve Smith, Kevin Boss, Hakeem Nicks and others) left NY, they were bad, which tells me that they were really good in NY because Eli lifted them up.

Last year, the Giants went public with their long-range plan for what happens at quarterback after Eli. He added the decision is his alone, and he would not publicly announce a change if he makes one.
