Eli Manning called into The Michael Kay Show for his weekly Monday afternoon appearance on ESPN 1050 and was asked about the loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

"Definitely, it definitely stings a little bit. And we definitely felt like we had great opportunities to win that game. We didn't play real well, but I still like the way we fought back. In the third and fourth quarters, it wasn't real pretty. But when we needed some big drives, needed some big plays, guys made it. All of a sudden there's a minute left in the game, you're down four, we're at the five-yard-line, first down, we're confident we're going to win that game. That whole drive, I think we were in there with the confidence, (saying), 'Hey, we're going to be able to get a two-minute drive here and go score and win.' You just hate to kind of lose on a weird play like that, also."Manning

was asked about wide receiver Victor Cruz.

"He's good. He's doing a lot of good things, and he's making some big plays. You like to have those things, but you have to remember he is a young guy and hasn't played in the National Football League very long. We just have to keep learning, and he has to keep learning just when there are times to fight for extra yards, when there are times when the ball is more important."

spoke with [Mike Francesa on WFAN](http://newyork.cbslocal.com/?podcasturl=http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/nyc.podcast.play.it/media/d0/d0/d0/dY/dX/dC/dV/YXCV3.MP3?authtok=5561585506718444164UneEiCtk9JR7b1EFs4aVHJvhG4&podcastname=Justin Tuck&podcastartist=Mike Francesa&stationid=62&tag=pages&dcid=CBS.NY) during his weekly Monday afternoon spot about the status of his injury.

"I don't know, I really don't. It's a day to day thing. Some days you feel better than others. You go out there and you kind of test it a little bit more, and you wake up the next day and it feels like crap. It's just a day to day thing. Hopefully we'll see some change in this thing by Wednesday and that can kind of push us forward to what we might be leaning to come the weekend. But, as of right now, I have no clue."

On Monday night, Steve Weatherford was asked by [WFAN's Kim Jones and Ed Coleman ](http://newyork.cbslocal.com/?podcasturl=http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/nyc.podcast.play.it/media/d0/d0/d0/dY/dX/dE/dI/YXEI3.MP3?authtok=5561585506718444164F3L9bEdokxQI87pJo64Tifyc6c&podcastname=Kim Jones and Ed Coleman with Steve Weatherford&podcastartist=WFAN&stationid=62&tag=pages&dcid=CBS.NY)about the differences for the  punter since coming over from the Jets.

"The helmet. I'm still standing 15 yards behind the center and trying to punt the ball as far and high as I can. For me, it's not nearly as much of a change as it would be if I was a positional player. The same is expected of me. I need to go out there every week and try to limit the returner, try to put the ball on or near the sidelines and give them as much consistency as I can, put the ball inside the 10-yard-line. Not a lot has changed for me. Obviously, the head coaches are vastly different and I've really enjoyed both. Rex (Ryan) is easy to like, he's a walking sound byte. But I've really kind of had a misconception of what Tom Coughlin was all about prior to playing for him, and I absolutely have loved every minute playing for him."
