Kurt Warner hasn't seen any slippage from Giants QB Eli Manning | NJ.com

"I think it's impossible to be able to evaluate anybody, especially when you're making an evaluation if he's done or not. You have to at least see him not be able to do it with the pieces in place," Warner told NJ Advance Media on radio row at the Super Bowl. "You've got to be able to go back and go, 'OK, that guy was open and that guy was open, he had plenty of time and he just didn't get it done. The defense played well enough and he just couldn't do it.' You can't say any of that about last year. I just think it's impossible to evaluate that."

Warner didn't detect any physical slippage from what he did see of Manning this season.

"Not at all," said Warner, who played until he was 38. "You have to give him another year with these pieces in place just to see. I'm just a guy that doesn't believe very many guys just fall off a cliff. Outside of a major injury or something physically just deteriorating, guys don't forget how to play the game. I don't think Eli is that way either."
