Postgame QB Eli Manning - 12/23

Posted Dec 23, 2012

QB Eli Manning on the Giants loss to the Ravens

On losing such an important game
“This is disappointing. We kenw we had to play our best football to win and get in the playoffs. We didn’t do that, and when that happens, teams in this league will embarrass you.”

On whether this loss was embarrassing
“You saw the scoreboard. It wasn’t real pretty, but that’s what can happen in football.”

On the team’s level of confidence entering the game
“Our confidence doesn’t waver from game to game. At Atlanta last week, we had some chances. We were moving the ball. We just couldn’t score. Today, we couldn’t get anything going. The Ravens did a very good job on defense. They put a lot of pressure on me, and they gave us a lot of different looks. They made it hard for us. It’s one thing to lose. Sometimes you lose at the end of the game, but we didn’t even give ourselves a chance today. We had no momentum, no spark.”

On the team’s struggles on third downs
“We had a lot of third-and-longs today. I tried to move around and buy myself some time, but they did a really good job on coverage. We couldn’t get anything going.”

On his health after taking a lot of hits today
“I’m fine. It’s no problem.”

On their slim playoff hopes
“All we can do is go out and play better football. We have to go to Philadelphia. Hopefully, we can get a win, and if we make it into the playoffs, that would be great. But, whatever happens is what’s going to happen. We can only focus on us, and we just want to play better football.”
