Eli Manning playing like an old QB who’s past his prime

Took a couple of shots downfield, when we had opportunities, we didn’t connect on enough,” Manning said.

An illegal block in the back on Sterling Shepard set up a second-and-19, and the boobirds first let Manning hear it when he threw short to Latimer for 4 yards, followed by a 7-yard pass to Barkley on third-and-16. Boooooooo again. 

“My confidence level in myself is good,” Manning said.

Proud Giants backs of yesteryear — Tiki Barber, Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw — gush about Barkley, a 230-pound man with the moves of a small man.

Jacobs: “Saquon could break every record that’s held by any Giant running back that there is. But the five [offensive linemen] in front of him gotta give him opportunity to be great.”

On his way out of the locker room, I asked Barkley why this offense cannot get on track. 

“That’s a great question,” Barkley said. “If it was easy to answer that question, we’ll be on track. I don’t think, I know we have the talent, I know we have the coaching staff. I just don’t know when it’s gonna click, but I’m a firm believer that it will click and it will happen.”

Manning one day will be a gold jacket guy long before Barkley gets to Canton. But on this night, Giants fans trudged to the parking lot depressed that their beloved quarterback looked more like an old jacket guy, battered all night and thoroughly beaten. #elimanning
