Eli @ the Meadowlands

I'm wondering about this:

 

Can something be done to help Eli with these playing conditions?

 

I remember reading something a while back (citation necessary) that Phil Simms was the perfect QB for the Meadowlands because, while he didn't have the biggest arm out there, he threw a very tight spiral and a very accurate ball.

 

Eli Manning, as far as we have seen, does neither of those things well.  Even when Eli is "on" the ball still comes out of his hand (for lack of a better word) "fluttering" - he just throws a lot of ducks.  Yesterday was no different than the play we have seen from this guy at the Meadowlands in cold/windy conditions.  I don't know, is the new stadium oriented in such a fashion to prevent these winds?

 

Point is: something needs to change.  Palmer needs to teach him to throw a more accurate ball, Eli needs to practice in cold conditions, I don't know what can be done about this, really.  All the best WR's in the world can't save Eli when he's throwing fluttering ducks into the wind.
