Eli Manning: “Nothing is going to get fixed by complaining”

Did Eli Manning hint at some locker room unhappiness during his post-game remarks on Sunday night following the New York Giants’ 20-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys?“Obviously guys are disappointed Cheap Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , some guys are getting frustrated as we should, but we can’t let that affect our preparation or our practices, so we’ve got to bounce back and come back,” Manning said. “Nothing is going to get fixed by complaining, we just need to step it up, make a difference and fix some things.”The Giants are now 0-2. What was expected to be an explosive offense has been pedestrian, at best, averaging 14.0 points through two games. Sunday, the offense was reduced mostly to checkdowns to Saquon Barkley, who caught an astounding 14 passes.The offensive line hasn’t been good. There haven’t been enough big plays. Mostly, there has been a pair of season-opening losses.A year ago, a season that went sour was marked by locker room issues. Mostly by what seemed like a division between the players and the coaching staff. With a new coach and 30 new players the Giants hope to have put all of that behind them. “When you have new players, a new scheme, a new coach sometimes it takes a little bit of time, especially for your first game on the road. It can take a little bit to get your rhythm and get things going, so we just have to keep working and make sure everyone can figure it out with the coaches to do better, and do differently to put us in a better position,” Manning said.The Giants, though, are rapidly running out of time. They need answers — and victories — soon.Three Giants named among ESPN’s top-100 players for 2018 ESPN put together a ranking of the top 100 players of the 2018 season. As you may know, the 2018 season hasn’t happened yet. Those who were asked to participate in the poll were asked to predict who the best players of the upcoming season will be. The players were rated on a scale of 1-100 on each list then those ranks were averaged for the final piece and per the rules past performance and positional value were not considered — “only greatness this season.”Three members of the New York Giants made the list , but the amount of players doesn’t necessarily correlate with team quality. 15 teams had at least three players on the list, but the New England Patriots have two.It shouldn’t be particularly hard to guess the three Giants who appear on the list, so let’s get to them.Odell Beckham, No. 11Beckham, recipient of a nice new contract, is predictably the highest Giant on the list and one of the top players rated overall. However, he’s just the third wide receiver on the list behind Antonio Brown (4) and Julio Jones (8). He’s also two spots behind a player he’ll likely see quite a bit of in Week 1, Jalen Ramsey of the Jacksonville Jaguars (9).Some Giants bias might cause some reading this currently to believe this is a little low for one of the most exciting players in the league, but it’s a pretty fair ranking. There could be an argument made to shift around much of the top 5-12 players listed, so seeing Beckham come in at 11 isn’t too far off.Landon Collins, No. 60Collins is the fifth of five safeties to make the list. He’s behind Harrison Smith (25), Earl Thomas (28), Eric Berry (36), and Malcolm Jenkins (56).These rankings might make a little more sense if everyone is expected to play a full season and at full health. Of the four safeties in front of Collins, one is not in camp, one is coming off an Achilles tear, and the other will turn 31 this season, though Jenkins is still playing at a high level. Collins should have the best case to rise up these rankings following up last year’s “down” season with an active role in James Bettcher’s defense, which should move the fourth-year safety all around the defense.Saquon Barkley, No. 87Barkley was the only rookie to make this list, which makes sense as a high draft pick with clear projected volume. 10 running backs made the list Aldrick Rosas Jersey , the fourth most at a position behind quarterback, wide receiver, and defensive end, each of which had 14 players. Running back was also tied with corner at 10.Eight running backs were listed ahead of Barkley: Le’Veon Bell (7), Todd Gurley (13), Ezekiel Elliott (15), David Johnson (27), Alvin Kamara (30), Kareem Hunt (52), Melvin Gordon (72), and Devonta Freeman (74). Dalvin Cook (94) is the back who made the list just behind Barkley.This ranking is probably based on not knowing where to put a rookie running back on the list. If Barkley is going to live up to expectations of the second overall pick, he’ll put up numbers that put him at least in the Johnson-Kamara range of players. SnubsOf course it’s not easy to predict who the top-100 players of an upcoming season is going to be, but it shouldn’t be too hard to predict Damon Harrison is going to have another great season. Snacks continues to be consistently underrated — a reminder he’s never been to a Pro Bowl — and he doesn’t make the cut here with seven defensive tackles listed. Those who did make the list do have more value as pass rushers, but Harrison has added in some quarterback pressure since coming to the Giants while being an unstoppable force in the middle against the run. Around the divisionThe Philadelphia Eagles tied the New Orleans Saints with most players listed (7). Winning a Super Bowl will have that effect. Five Dallas Cowboys were listed, three on the offensive line — though Zack Martin (38) is recovering from a knee injury and Travis Frederick’s (61) status is unknown after being diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome. Washington had three players listed, but none in the top-70 — Trent Williams (73), Josh Norman (83), and Alex Smith (97).
