Giants Owner Expects “Championship-Level” Eli Manning This Year


Eli Manning got another vote of confidence on Thursday, this time from Giants owner John Mara.  Even After watching Manning throw a league leading 27 interceptions last season, Mara still believes that Manning is a great quarterback.

Mara told the New York Daily News that “he expects Manning to return to a championship-level of play” at quarterback for the Giants.

“I don’t think he all of a sudden forgot how to play quarterback.”

“We expect to see the championship-level Eli play for us this year. He hopefully will have more support than he had last year, and I think you’ll see him playing back to his form.”

Mara believes the 33-year-old Manning still has great years left in him.

“We still believe he’s got a lot of years left in him,” Mara said. “And we’re not talking like Eli Manning only has one or two more years left. We think he’s got quite a few more left.”
