After yesterday afternoon's installment in the weekly drama of the Eli Manning Swath Of Destruction, one thing seems rather clear: The Giants quarterback just doesn't seem to be enjoying football very much. This probably shouldn't be much of a surprise, considering his father and older brother have surely been pounding the game down his throat since he was teething — probably before.
Kissing Suzy Kolber imagines how Manning must be feeling right now.
I do not like football. I don't know how much clearer I can make that point. This sport blows. Everyone's running around and hitting each other... yikes. All I wanted when I was a kid was to hang out with my mom in the kitchen and make some zucchini bread. But nooooo, everyone's all like, "You're a Manning. You should play football!"
The sad part about this: We guarantee that if Eli were to read this, he would be nodding his head, slowly, looking downcast, before Archie smacks him on the back of his head and screams at him to just pay attention to the damned playbook already.

(Just to bookend this, Rex Grossman has plenty to say this week as well.)
