No player has thrown more interceptions through Week 16 than New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning.
Needless to say, it’s been a woeful season for Manning which has been enhanced by a disconnect between he and the Giants’ wide receivers, this according to Victor Cruz:
Cruz said there was an obvious “disconnect” between the quarterback and wide receivers, which led to a career-high in interceptions by Manning and an offense that looked completely lost at times this season.
“Absolutely,” Cruz said. “I think this year I want to make it a point to get with Eli a little bit more, get with our quarterbacks a little bit more and get the receiving corps together as much as we can to kind of build that more.”
It’s not as if Manning did anything to alter his passing style this past offseason and both Cruz and Hakeem Nicks have had success with Manning before, so the disconnect certainly seems a bit odd.
Regardless, the end results have been eye popping bad so hopefully the Giants will finish out Week 17 strong and move forward into next season with a better relationship.
