Eli Manning is 32nd in the NFL with an average of 10.31 yards per completion. He's tied for 28th with a touchdown on 3.2 percent of his pass attempts. His 7.02 air yards per attempt put him 29th among quarterbacks.
“All you have to do is watch him,” one NFL executive said. “Don’t think about what his name is. Just watch him. Don’t make excuses. It’s blatant and obvious.”
Several players on the New York Giants have expressed frustration with Manning's performance. One player specifically commented recently about Manning’s inability to do anything against Cover 2 and zone defenses.
Manning has struggled over several seasons and even in his prime he was far from one of the NFL's best quarterbacks.
