Back when Big Blue View began during the 2007 off-season the very first thing we did was have a discussion about quarterback Eli Manning. Four years later when you talk about the New York Giants the story is still the same -- Manning is the place where you have to begin.
So, as I begin a series of off-season positional reviews quarterback is the place where I think I have to start.
|2010 - Eli Manning||16||85.3||339||539||62.9||4002||250.1||7.4||31||25||32||70||4.4||2.2||0||16||117|
There is much to like in what Manning did in 2010, as well as there is also plenty to dislike. You may know the numbers by now, but we need to recite them anyway.
- A second straight season of 4,000 passing yards (4,002).
- Career bests in touchdown passes (31), completion percentage (62.9) and total completions (339).
- Manning is now second in Giants history in attempts (3,332), completions (1,932) and yards (22,646) and is third in touchdown passes (156).
- A career-worst, and league-leading, 25 interceptions.
- A ridiculous 4.6 percent of his passes intercepted.
- Five lost fumbles (seven overall).
- A quarterback rating of 85.3, his worst in the past three seasons.
