New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning put together another terrible performance on Thursday night as he threw three interceptions against the depleted Chicago Bears defense and watched the G-Men sink to 0-6 on the season.
After the game, Manning was visibly upset with his performance and expressed his disappointment not only for himself, but for his teammates and coaches.
“It’s difficult,” Manning said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “Not on me. I feel bad for my teammates. I feel bad for my coaches. Everybody is fighting every day. I’m fighting, too. I’m trying to get a win for these guys. It’s tough. It’s tough at times when you don’t feel like you are playing your best.”
Manning has been doing his best to make plays for the team, but he’s been an utter failure. Myers says that Manning was very “distraught” after the game, but he seems ready to continue pushing forward and working to make his team better.
“It’s frustrating not winning,” Manning said. “And it’s frustrating because I don’t feel like I’m doing my part to get this team some wins and some chances. That’s the frustrating part. I feel like our guys are fighting hard. Guys are doing their part and I need to start doing mine. . . .
“I think they know, and hope, I’m going to bounce out of it, or that I’m going to make the plays and do the things I need to do. I told them that I’m going to get better these past few weeks and I’m going to start making the plays that I need to make. Obviously, I needed to start doing that.”
Unfortunately, at this point of the season, the only thing that the Giants are playing for is their jobs.
If they continue down the turnover prone pass and continue to rack up the losses, we could see ownership clean house on the coaching staff and roster as they make some serious moves to turn around their sinking ship.
