NEW YORK (WFAN) — Even though the opponent and venue figure to be difficult to deal with, Eli Manning is actually happy his Giants play again on Thursday.
Then again, when you are 0-5 beggars really can’t be choosers.
Manning told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Monday he’s knows what everyone has been saying about his struggling team. He said playing the Bears in Chicago on a short week of preparation might be a good thing because the Giants won’t have too much time to harp on their latest loss. He chalked up Sunday’s 36-21 home defeat to Philadelphia as more of the same — Big Blue not taking advantage of opportunities and turning the ball over way too much.
“We did some good things, had some good drives, and some tough plays at the end. For me, I have to take care of the ball, not turn the ball over at the end of a tight game,” Manning said. “It’s tough, but the good thing is we got a short week and not a whole lot of time to worry about this past game and we’re already in preparation for Chicago.”
