New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has been struggling lately and Greg Cosell of NFL FIlms believes he knows why.
Cosell was on Friday’s Yahoo! Week Ten preview podcast and indicated that he believes Manning might be suffering from a “tired arm.”
“Ron Jaworski and I were having this conversation this week,” Cosell said, via Pro Football Talk. “I looked at Eli on Monday; Jaws looked at Eli on Wednesday. And he made a very interesting comment. It really struck me, and I would defer to Jaws on this because I’ve never taken snaps in the NFL. … It looks to him like Eli’s arm is a little tired. And that he’s not driving the ball at the intermediate and deeper levels the way we’ve come to expect. Because Eli has a strong arm.
“And we even got that sort of confirmed by someone who’s a lot closer to the situation. His arm’s a little bit tired right now. He’s missed some throws that he would normally make.”
The Giants have a week 11 bye, I’m sure Manning will make sure he takes care of his arm, if it’s indeed tired.
