    Eli’s struggles may be due to “tired arm”

    Two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning has struggled the past three weeks. Not a ton has been made of it because the G-Men have won two of the three games. But Eli has not played well, and it’s been evident both on the field and in the box scores.

    Manning’s struggles were especially noticeable in Weeks Eight and Nine. Against the Cowboys and Steelers, Manning combined to complete just 25-of-54 passes (46.3 percent) for 317 yards (5.87 YPA), no touchdowns, and two interceptions.

    NFL Films guru Greg Cosell mentioned on Friday’s Yahoo! Week Ten preview podcast that Manning’s struggles may be due to a “tired arm,” 318 throws into his ninth NFL season. And not only has it been evident on game tape, but Cosell and ESPN’s Ron Jaworski confirmed with someone in the know that Eli’s arm is tired.

    “Ron Jaworski and I were having this conversation this week,” Cosell said. “I looked at Eli on Monday; Jaws looked at Eli on Wednesday. And he made a very interesting comment. It really struck me, and I would defer to Jaws on this because I’ve never taken snaps in the NFL. … It looks to him like Eli’s arm is a little tired. And that he’s not driving the ball at the intermediate and deeper levels the way we’ve come to expect. Because Eli has a strong arm.

    “And we even got that sort of confirmed by someone who’s a lot closer to the situation. His arm’s a little bit tired right now. He’s missed some throws that he would normally make.”

    The Giants aren’t going to bench Manning, so they’ll likely just sit back and hope he snaps out of it.

    I honestly think that's why they are trying to go with more short quick routes to guys like Cruz/Hixon.

    Eli certainly is not used to the offense relying on his passing this heavily... He's throwing a huge number of attempts week-in-week-out. I believe it

    Really what about last season?

    Maybe he was just flat out tired for the steelers game, anyone affected by the hurricane was..

    After the Skins game, Eli and Gilbride mentioned that WAS was using some complex coverages they hadn't seen before and it shut them down a bit and limited what they could do. I pointed this out and said it could be a problem.

    So then Rob f'n Ryan's D shuts them down and LeBeau took the same method to a new level and did the same.

    Don't be surprised if Cincy does the same and we end up waiting through a bye week for them to make meaningful adjustments.

    Lets just take this for what it's worth, it's just speculation from broadcasters and analyst..

    Could be right, could be wrong.. Lets just hope it's wrong.. Time will tell

    This is a very misleading thread. All it is, is speculation from a guy who watched some film.

    Neither Eli nor the Giants made a statement that would lead me to believe Eli is hurting.

    is right.
