New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has been having fun with the media and all of their coverage of the New York Jets and quarterback Tim Tebow.

“I told David Carr to take his shirt off while we were running sprints after practice,” Manning said on ESPN Radio (via the NY Daily News) on Thursday, “to see if he can get the same coverage.”

What’s really funny is when Eli took a dig at ESPN.

“Every time you turn on the TV, it’s the Jets. SportsCenter is camped out at the Jets complex.

“I think they are moving everything from (ESPN headquarters in) Bristol (Conn.) to right there, to their complex over there. That will be an interesting move.”

I love Eli’s subtle and laid back way of taking digs at people.
