The New York Giants are off to a terrible 0-5 start and a lot of the troubles begin with quarterback Eli Manning. Throughout the first five weeks of the season, Manning has 12 interceptions, which is completely unacceptable for a team that is trying to turn things around.

After the latest loss, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin discussed Manning’s play and he had some harsh criticism for a few of the mistakes.

“I honestly believe that he’s trying so hard to get us a win, he’s almost put too much on himself,” Coughlin said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “He keeps it all pretty much inside. I’m not making excuses. There were a couple of those plays that were terrible.”

First off, yes, Manning has made some terrible. However, as Coughlin points out, he is trying to do everything in his power and that will lead to anyone forcing throws.

The Giants had no running game throughout the first few weeks of the season, so even more pressure was on Eli.

If the team does not turn things around soon, Coughlin could hear fans calling for his job. Because of that, he needs to hope Eli can turn things around and get this team back to their winning way.
