Eli Manning – part of the problem or part of the solution?

Monday, December 27th, 2010

A lot of Giants have been getting free passes thanks to the 2007 Super Bowl win over the 18-1 New England Patriots. But no one can deny hat the Giants currently have a problem. Is it Eli Manning?

A lot of the debate focuses on his interceptions and whether they are Manning’s fault.

Let’s compare Eli manning to some other QBs stats (attempts/INTs).

E.Manning: 510 / 24
Brees 571 / 19
P.Manning: 638 / 17
McNabb: 472 / 15
Bradford: 554 / 14
Sanchez: 507 / 13
Rivers: 504 / 12
Schaub: 552 / 12
Orton: 498 / 9
Freeman: 448 / 6
Cassel: 417 / 5
Brady: 476 / 4

Obviously he gets credit for the TD passes but how much blame does he get for the interceptions? Two against the Packers came on desperation passes in garbage time. Tom Coughlin has said some interceptions are on the receivers but what does that mean? Why does Tom Brady thrwo so few ints? Sure some were dropped but not 20+. Are the Pats receivers that much better than the Giants receivers? Is our offense design screwed up? Or is our QB an overpaid lug?

Anyway, how much blame do you place on Manning?
