Despite the two-game skid, despite the lull in the offense, despite having teams like Green Bay, New Orleans, Atlanta and Baltimore on the other side of the bye week, this is when the quarterback feels he and his team have a great opportunity to prove themselves.
“That’s what you want to get excited about,” Eli Manning told Mike Francesa on Monday during his weekly report on WFAN. “You want to get excited about, hey, where do we stand in this league, in the NFL, and you want to play these good teams and see if we can go out there and win some big games. That’s when you get excited. You play a good team and you earn that win, you get excited about those. We’re going to look forward to that.”
The 6-3 Packers, winners of four straight, are the first on the slate after the bye. Until then, the Giants will try to recapture that winning style.
“I feel very confident about this team,” Manning continued. “I think we’ve got great character guys, guys who have great passion for football and their commitment to their craft and getting better and they want to have a big year. They want to have a great season. We want to make the playoffs, and whatever it takes we’re going to commit to it and we’re going to find it.
“Hey, we’re searching for that right style, for that right way for us to win football games. And we’re going to keep grinding away until we find it.”
