Archie Manning says Eli Manning is ‘dying right now’ due to the Giants losing


After starting the season 0-6, the Giants impressively rebounded, temporarily righting the ship with a four-game winning streak. The Giants then struggled, losing two of three. A big win over division rival Washington Redskins was sandwiched between a heartbreaking loss to the Dallas Cowboys and a 37-14 blowout loss to the San Diego Chargers last Sunday.

With the Giants now sitting at 5-8, and the season slipping away, Papa Manning has emerged from the shadows to discuss just how hard Eli Manning presently is taking all the losing the New York Giants have been doing this season that has eliminated the team from postseason consideration.

Via the New York Post:

“Eli’s dying right now,” Archie Manning said on WFAN on Tuesday morning in an interview with Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason. “As is Tom Coughlin, as is Justin Tuck and everyone else.

“You expect to kind of be in the hunt this time of year. They have the type of year they are, he doesn’t show it.”

Poor, poor Eli. Not only are San Diego Chargers fans openly mocking him with gussying up  a head shot of him so he looks like an overly done-up transvestite, he’s really going through some tough times. I bet Daddy Manning can’t even convince Eli to go out for a frosty chocolate milkshake with him at this point.
