Quarterback Eli Manning hasn’t bought into the doom and gloom about the offense at any point this summer and his reaction wasn’t any different after Thursday’s 1-for-4, zero yard outing. Manning found silver linings wherever he could find them, including the old standby about the week of practice offering no hint of the struggles that were to come.
“Well, I thought we had a good week of practice,” Manning said, via NJ.com. “We didn’t get much going [Thursday night], but we’re getting ready for Detroit, that first game. We got the starters out healthy so that’s always the most important thing. We have to get ready for Detroit on Monday night. It should be fun.”
The Giants should be able to get things going in the passing game against a perennially shaky Lions secondary, but the unit's preseason play has not been inspiring.
