Eli Manning throws two touchdowns in losing effort


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a pair of touchdowns Sunday against the Cardinals, but New York couldn't overcome four turnovers -- including two Manning interceptions -- in a 25-14 loss Week 2.

Manning got off to a pretty poor start Sunday, as he threw an interception on his fifth passing attempt. Though, Manning did a good job of bouncing back from the interception, as by halftime he had a 100.9 quarterback rating. He completed 12 of 14 passes for 135 yards by halftime, which included a 7-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle right before the break.

Manning put New York ahead 14-10 with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Fells with 2:03 left in the third quarter, but that's when it fell apart for New York. The Giants would turn the ball over three times in the fourth quarter and unofficially had five drops in the second half, including three from star receiver Victor Cruz.

Manning completed 26 of 39 passes for 277 yards in the loss. He rushed for 5 yards and was sacked two times. The Giants are back in action Week 3 vs. Houston.


Cardinals coach offers opinion about Eli Manning's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) As the Cardinals prepare to play the Giants Week 2, Arizona coach Bruce Arians took time out to talk with the New York media and expressed his views about quarterback Eli Manning, who appears to be struggling as he adjusts to a new offense under first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo.

"I did this with Carson Palmer last year," Arians said, per the New York Daily News. "He had been in the same system pretty much nine years and he has ideas, then you are trying to re-program. It is much easier getting a rookie and brainwashing him than it is to take a veteran and change him totally into a new system.

"I try to never judge a quarterback in a new offense until Week 8."

Arians said Palmer didn't fully understand the new offense until midway through the 2013 season. The Cardinals went 4-4 to begin the year, but finished 6-2 over the last eight games.

"It was Week 8 for us last year," Arians said of when things changed. "Then, all of a sudden, you could see the guys around him start to get it and play faster and play better."


Eli Manning has nightmare Week 1 performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning had a nightmare of a game on Monday against the Lions in week 1.

Manning struggled through his first two drives and his third drive was kept alive due to a roughing the punter penalty. Manning bounced back several plays later with a 1-yard fade pass to Larry Donnell in the end zone for a touchdown in the second quarter.

Manning targeted Donnell again on the opening drive of the second half, but he failed to turn around resulting in an interception.Things didn't get any better for Manning in the third quarter. Manning was picked off by Glover Quin, stalling another drive. He was limited to 163 yards through the air while completing 18 of 33 passes. He threw one touchdown and was picked off twice in a 35-14 defeat. He was sacked twice and finished with a 53.0 passer rating.

Manning will look to get back on track Week 2 at home against Arizona. He hasn't faced the Cardinals since 2011. He carved them up for 321 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Eli Manning is not worth the risk in Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning spent the entire offseason learning a new offense, and he'll get to apply it come Week 1 against the Lions in Detroit on Monday night.

The last time he faced the Lions, he cracked the 250-yard mark. Manning completed 23 of 42 passes for 256 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He'll look to build off that performance. However, the only difference between last year's meeting is that Manning will be working with a new offensive coordinator, Ben McAdoo.

Each of the last three years, Manning has had at least one 400-yard passing game in the first five weeks of the season. Although he has a somewhat favorable matchup, he's had an extremely rough preseason under the new offense, which leaves us skeptical heading into the season opener. He's way too risky to trust at this point, so leave him on your bench.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) With the Giants struggling to get comfortable in their new offense, coach Tom Coughlin told reporters that quarterback Eli Manning and other starters will play 15-18 snaps in Thursday's preseason finale against New England.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Manning hooked up with Rueben Randle for a 15-yard touchdown strike with just 11 seconds remaining in the first half, his last play of the game. The first-team sat out the final two quarters and Manning complied 139 yards through the air while completing 12 of 21 passes. He added a touchdown, no interceptions, finishing with a 93.2 passer rating. He was sacked twice.

Manning has completed 19 of 37 passes for 188 yards through four preseason games.

Eli Manning not worried about nonexistent offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he's not worried about the lackluster performance by the starting offense. Manning is 1 for 9 passing for six yards over the past two games.

"Obviously you want to go out there and you want to play well," he told the New York Daily News. "You feel like you should be able to find completions and do things well. But you can’t get worried at this point in time."

The Giants installed a new scheme under coordinator Ben McAdoo. They have only one significant preseason game left to show progress.


Eli Manning held to one completion Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) The preseason struggles continued for Eli Manning and the Giants Saturday night in Indianapolis.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Giants will host the Steelers on Saturday.

Giants set unrealistic goal for Eli Manning


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Giants quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf would like Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this year. While Manning is focused on improving his accuracy and will take fewer deep shots, the goal is unrealistic.

Manning has a career completion percentage of 58.5 and his career-best was 62.9 percent in 2010.

"We'd love to be up there at 70 percent," Langsdorf said, via the New York Daily News. "It hasn't been done very often. That's the ultimate goal. We'd like to raise his completion percentage for sure."

Only four players in NFL history have posted a completion percentage above 70. Manning has completed 70 percent of his throws in a single game just 15 times in 10 seasons.

"The high 60s is kind of the goal, to be in the top of the league," Manning said. "Sure it's realistic. It's a combination of the offense and the players we have."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eli Manning 'reenergized' by new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning played 10 years in Kevin Gilbride's offensive system. He told the New York Daily News that learning the new offense installed by first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo has reinvigorated him.

"It’s reenergized me," Manning said. "I’m trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don’t have 10 years. I have a few months."

Despite undergoing arthroscopic ankle surgery April 10, Manning said he has not been limited during offseason workouts. Giants' training camp begins July 22.


QB coach working on Eli Manning's mechanics


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) New Giants quarterback coach Danny Langsdorf is focusing on Eli Manning's fundamentals and footwork.

"We’ve spent a lot of time fundamentally throughout the spring, both footwork and everything from ball fakes, ball handling to throwing accurately to dropping back," Langsdorf, the former Oregon State offensive coordinator, told The Star-Ledger.

"There’s a little bit different of footwork that we’re using, some of the routes that he’s used to, and we’re timing it up with the receivers so there’s a little bit of fundamental work but he’s a veteran guy and a pro that’s had success for a long time so we’re not doing anything, drastic changes, but just trying to fine-tune and tweak a few things."

Manning threw 18 touchdowns and a career-high 27 interceptions last season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"I already feel like I can go out there and do everything," Manning said. “We’ll still be smart about it these next few weeks and not overdo anything. If they want to limit me somewhat, I’ll understand that. But I want to take every single rep and they know that."


Eli Manning has started throwing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"He feels good," Peyton Manning told the New York Daily News. "He was doing some light throwing the other day, obviously just kind of upper-body stuff."

Eli Manning is out of his walking boot and has begun running. Peyton Manning described the April surgery as preemptive.

"Just the doctor thought this might pop up in the fall," Peyton Manning said. "Might as well knock it out now. It's hard to do, but it was the right thing to do, and I know he (Eli) will be excited once he can get back out there."


Curtis Painter recovering from knee surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

“I think you almost feel like this is an opportunity to re-invent yourself,” Manning said, per the New York Daily News. “And to come back and to change what occurred last year and some of the difficulties, and bounce back and kind of have a clean slate to kind of prove yourself again, and get back to playing at a high level.”

Giants OC to focus on Eli Manning's fundamentals


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) With Eli Manning coming off a disastrous 27-interception season, new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said he's going to focus on fundamentals and taking care of the football.

"First and foremost we hang our hat on fundamentals and that’s gonna be the focal point, that’s the first thing we’re gonna address,'' McAdoo told the New York Post. "The second thing is we want to take care of the football. Taking care of the football is one of the biggest factors in winning and losing games. Fundamentals can help you there.

Giants not expected to address Eli Manning's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eli Manning 'tried to do more than one guy can do'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a career-high 27 interceptions this season and was sacked a career-high 39 times. His former teammate, NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner, said Manning tried to overcompensate for the Giants' offensive weaknesses.

"A lot of things went wrong and, not that he played perfect, but he tried to do more than one guy can do," Warner said, per The Star-Ledger. "You can't do that in this league. In this league, as a quarterback, you make mistakes. And then when all kinds of pressure is on top of you and you're trying to do more than you should, you’re going to make more mistakes."

Warner added that "if the pieces come together around him," Manning could bounce back with a great 2014 season.

Eli Manning's season ends with ankle injury


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning saw his season come to a premature end Sunday, as he was pulled from the team's final game with an ankle injury. Manning was hurt at the end of the first half, limped to the locker room, and was replaced by Curtis Painter at the start of the second half. 

Manning had completed 11-of-25 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown before being pulled. He also threw an interception. 

Manning finishes the 2013 season with 3,818 passing yards, his lowest output since 2008. His 18 passing touchdowns were his fewest since his rookie year (when Manning only started sveen games). And his 27 interceptions were a career high. 


Eli Manning wrapping up nightmare season


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning hasn't scored 20 Fantasy points in a game since Week 1. He's two games removed from a -4 point performance. He has scored fewer than 10 Fantasy points six times this season. 

Manning's 2013 campaign comes to a close against a Washington team that has allowed 20.5 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. But the defense is much improved lately, having not allowed 20 Fantasy points to a quarterback since Week 12. And Manning has been miserable even when facing the greatest of matchups. With Victor Cruz out for Week 17, things look even less appealing.

Manning could bounce back in 2014 -- and may prove to be an sly sleeper addition -- but his 2013 has been a disaster. He can be left on the bench in most formats.
