Eli Manning is entering his 10th NFL season and has two Super Bowl rings. Can he keep getting better? New York Giants quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan said Tuesday that he "absolutely" can.
"There’s no question he can keep improving," Ryan said during a meeting with the media. "One of the biggest things I’ll say is he continues to work at it. He wants to keep improving, by no means is he content. He’s striving to get better every day."

Ryan provided this example:
"We’re constantly working on things that he can improve on. We spent four individual practices in the spring working on his drop mechanics," he said.
Manning completed 59.9 percent of his passes in 2012, the first time since 2007 he completed less than 60 percent of his throws.
Rookie quarterback Ryan Nassib has been inconsistent during training camp, struggling with his accuracy. Ryan didn't seem surprised, or fazed, by that.
"He’s got a strong arm. We knew that going in. Him getting more comfortable with the concepts, that’s going to start showing in terms of his accuracy," Ryan said.
"I’ve been very impressed with his work ethic and his professionalism."
