NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As far as Eli Manning is concerned, the Giants didn’t quit during their embarrassing loss in Carolina on Sunday.
Speaking to WFAN’s Mike Francesa during his normal spot on Monday, Manning disagreed with the notion suggested by former Big Blue linebacker Carl Banks earlier in the day that the Giants simply gave up during the 38-0 defeat. Manning admitted things snowballed and got out of control, but said never once did his teammates lay down.
“We were competing, trying to get things going, but it’s tough sometimes. We had turnovers and holding calls that backed us up. We kept fighting but it got to the point in the fourth quarter where the game was pretty much out of reach,” Manning said.
