EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Eli Manning sees his dismal preseason statistics and isn’t concerned.
Preseason is a time to get used to standing in the pocket, to get adjusted to new teammates and to take a couple of hits. And that’s just what the New York Giants quarterback says he has done in the first three preseason games.
Manning has not had a ton of success playing behind a revamped offensive line, and without departed wide receiver Steve Smith and tight end Kevin Boss. He has completed just over 49 percent of his passes, has not thrown a touchdown and tossed two interceptions.
Certainly not Tom Brady-type stats, but Manning is certain things will change once the regular season starts on Sept. 11 at Washington.
