Eli Manning On WFAN: Offense Made Progress, But Missed Opportunities In Week 3

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Giants quarterback Eli Manning saw improvement from his team on Sunday, but acknowledged that there was still a lot of work to be done.

The Giants dropped to 0-3 on the season following a last second, 27-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

“There was a lot of good things. I liked the fight of the team, and obviously just didn’t quite have enough to win the game,” he said.

Manning told WFAN’s Mike Francesa that missed opportunities at the end of the first half, and in the third quarter wound up hurting the team later on.

Faced with a skilled Eagles defensive line, the Giants relied on quick releases and an increased tempo to move the football.

“We knew they were a talented front four…We wanted to tire out their defensive front, play fast, get them where they’re not set and they gotta communicate so we could slow down their pass rush a little bit,” he said.

Manning was not sacked at all in the effort after spending some time on the ground in the first two weeks. For all of the Giants’ offensive struggles in their first two outings, they managed 24 points inside of a single quarter against the Eagles.

“We have the capabilities of scoring. Most of the day we moved the ball well. Obviously had two drives where you’re right there inside the 20 yard line and you get no points,” he said.

It’s those drives where the Giants left potential points on the board where Manning said the team needs to improve.

“Had a couple of very manageable third downs that we didn’t convert. Those can be the difference between wins and losses,” he said.

While Manning had more success throwing the ball, the running game remained stagnant — something the Giants’ quarterback called a function of Philly’s defensive scheme.

“They had seven guys in the box or a safety down most of the day which makes it tough to run. You’re gonna have one guy unblocked, or you’re gonna have an extra receiver in there to block. It’s gonna make it tough, but it’s gonna give you the passing game,” he said.

The Giants began the season with post-season expectations, they’ll face an uphill climb after starting the year 0-3.

“The guys were obviously disappointed yesterday, just because we felt we had opportunities to win the game,” he said. “We’ve gotta play better team football, and yesterday we just didn’t do it.”

Manning and Francesa also discussed using a quick release to help the offensive line, cutting down on mistakes as the Giants were hit with a celebration penalty for the second straight week, digging out of a tough hole with a challenging schedule, and preparing for Tampa.

Senator Bill Cassidy Filmed YAWNING As Disabled Protesters Are Forcibly Removed From Hearing On GOP ‘Health Care’ Bill!

Calling Lindsay Graham and Bill Cassidy‘s effort a “health care bill” is like referring to that dentist who shot Cecil the Lion as an “animal rights activist.”

Sure, he was “active” in the realm of “animal rights” but mostly in removing all of them through murder. So it’s really a misnomer.

Video: Jimmy Kimmel SOUNDS OFF On Graham-Cassidy For A THIRD Time!

Monday’s Senate hearing on the removal-of-health-care-in-favor-of-tax-cuts bill (not succinct but at least accurate) was interrupted by protesters from ADAPT, a grassroots disability rights organization with a simple message about health care:

PLEASE DON’T KILL US!

Well, the Senate had one thing to say to their interruptions today: NOPE!

Watch as Senator Orrin Hatch has them forcibly removed from the proceedings:

So sad. But our sadness quickly turned to anger when we saw this; in one vid, you can even see bill co-author Cassidy YAWNING as people are dragged away:

So much for the guy promising Jimmy Kimmel he was going to do his best to protect people.

An estimated 100 people will be arrested today. As for whether they were being disruptive…

OF COURSE THEY ARE — they’re fighting for their damn lives!!!

According to the Center for American Progress, between 1.4 and 1.8 million nonelderly adults with disabilities would lose crucial Medicaid coverage under Graham-Cassidy.

Advocates say this loss would send us hurtling back to the time when everyone with disabilities had to be institutionalized and could not be part of the work force. Which way seems better for the economy AND for their well-being, Republicans??

Frankly when you look at those kinds of numbers, some civil disobedience doesn’t seem at all out of order.

Pear Trees Across New York Area Under Attack By Hard-To-Control ‘Trellis Rust’

ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Trees are under attack by a hard-to-control fungus that’s been making the rounds, wiping out beautiful street and backyard pear trees across the area.

“You can see it’s all over the ground, every day, it’s all over,” Robert Somerville told CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff.

Pear tree leaves in front of Somerville’s Rockville Centre home are dropping by the hundreds — the bark is covered with a greenish-yellow fungus.

“It’s sad, it’s sad,” he said.

The telltale signs of trellis rust have been decimating pear trees across Long Island and New York City. In Rockville Centre the September streetscape looks like winter. The lush canopy of trees that residents cherish is in jeopardy.

“It’s all over the village. All these pear trees are dying on the streets as well as private property,” Ray Hampel said. “Obviously it really hurts the way the town looks and you can see how barren it looks.”

Borne from a damp spring and spread through the air, the fungus is attacking tens of thousands of ornamental trees that communities began planting a half-century ago. The Bradford pear was once considered the perfect street tree for its early and gorgeous white blooms and compact size.

“Up until now it didn’t have too many pest and disease problems, but this is something we see time and time again — when you plant something en masse and then you have a disease, you have a widespread problem,” Old Westbury Gardens Horticulture Expert, Maura Bush said.

Senator Todd Kaminsky (D-Rockville Centre) will be asking New York State for grants to help hard hit villages plant new trees.

“They are widespread and they are really gone and the answer is to replace them which is a very expensive venture,” he said. “Trees help make Long Island what it is, and the difficult thing is that you can’t stop this.”

The citizen run Rockville Centre Conservancy is looking into the mass removal of the blighted trees and replanting to save money.

Experts at Cornell Coop Extension caution against doing anything hastily. It’s possible some of the dead looking trees will come back next spring, and should be individually evaluated.

Experts said pruning out the diseased limbs in the early winter could extend the life of an afflicted tree. Fungicides are expensive and not always effective.
