Eli Manning: I’m 100 percent healthy

Eli Manning AP

After Giants quarterback Eli Manning had ankle surgery, General Manager Jerry Reese suggested he could miss the team’s spring workouts before returning to the field for training camp.

That scenario never came close to fruition. Manning has been a regular participant at the Giants’ organized team activities and said Monday that he’s taken all the reps he would have taken if he didn’t have surgery. That should continue as Manning says his ankle feels totally fine.

“Yeah, 100 percent, yeah,” Manning said, via the Newark Star-Ledger. “The ankle, I don’t think about it, don’t notice it. I go about practice and do everything and they’re not even worried about it. So, it hasn’t been an issue. No question I could play tomorrow.”

Manning is feeling 100 percent healthy, but his confidence level with the team’s new offense isn’t quite that high. Despite his quick return to practice, he said he hasn’t gotten everything down and that the process will continue into the summer. Former Giants quarterback Phil Simms thinks the scheme will be a better fit for Manning than the one he was in while throwing 27 interceptions last year, so being healthy enough to learn it on the field should be a big plus.

    Was he feeling 100% when he was throwing 27 interceptions? I dont think its a health issue.

    I’m happy for you Eli. How’s your line ?

    I am not going to trust Eli on percentages. I doubt he can manage simple addition and subtraction.

    No matter what Eli haters want to say he’s won more SBs than your QB the last 7 years. SBs win are what the NFL is about, not fantasy stats.

    A two time Superbowl MVP does not quibble over the opinion of fools — he putts blindfolded for charity.

    To all the misinformed who think Eli is not smart: he was recently referred to by an unnamed NFL exec as being ” brilliant” and “smarter than his older brother”. Look it up. The dude is very bright….and when you have a bunch of broken down old men for an O-line and a number 1 WR acting like a number 4, bad things happen.

    Eli still has more rings than peyton with his Star Wars numbers

    Well, Payton must have better eye sight LOL!

    Quick… How many picks did montana have in 1984? Simms in 86? Aikman in 94? Brady in 01? Roethelisberger in 06?

    I have no idea. But I don’t need to google 4, 2, 3, 3, 2 to know the number of rings each has. Pick stats fade. Ring stats don’t. Does yours have rings? Unlikely.

    Cheers.

    Since you brought it up, it’s been 19,518 days (53+ years) since the Eagles have won a Championship. I bet that sucks!

  15. nygmann says: Jun 10, 2014 10:48 AM

    Say what you will about interceptions, not an accurate passer, etc. etc. at the very least he shows up. He has not missed a regular season game since he started in 2004. That’s a decade ago! He is one tough, durable player!

    Here’s a stat… Number of NFC East Teams Other than the Giants to Win a Super Bowl in the 21st Century: 0

    Eli Manning – the QB everyone loves to hate, the so-called “turnover machine”, iron man, two-time SB, and, not to mention MVP winner. Hey Philly, Dallas and skin fans, what do they call your QB? Oh, that’s right, they don’t call them anything coz they’re irrelevant.

  18. Spider43NYG says: Jun 10, 2014 11:12 AM

    I guess when it’s been almost 20,000 since your last championship, you become a little detached from reality.

    Eagles fans are just haters. Their hate just pisses off the football gods. Remember the dream team?? How’d that Steve Smith thing work out for ya?? Who won the SB that year??

    The only number that can make these fans understand and stop hating Eli is 12 = # of Eagles QBs (McNabb; McMahon (not Jim); Garcia; Detmer; Feeley; Blake; Kafka; Young; Kolb; Young; Edwards; Vick; Barkely; Foles) who have played since Eli became a starter in 2004, During that time Eli has never missed a game and won 2 SBs.

    Out of these 12 who you taking over Eli?? Nick Foles of course, because he’s the man right now. Until he isn’t. Just like Vick was the man in 2010 and Kolb before him. After the first Dallas game last year they were riding Foles out of town.

    Come back to us when your boy Foles or anyone else wins a championship. Until then, I’ll take Eli over any of your chumps. Time is Yours!!

    Only one pick Eli has to worry about is who to pick to induct him into the HOF

    Who never has to worry about that Romo, Vick, Folds and who ever the foreskins have starting in week 3

    And if any of you haters think Eli cares he is laughing all the way to both the bank and Canton.

    Two time Superbowl MVP … how’s your guy doing?

  23. bigbwoy000 says: Jun 10, 2014 12:46 PM

    @greymares

    How about you? Gonna tell us about your Chip driven “dream team” in the offseason again?? Philadelphia wins a championship every off season. Full of hope & hubris in March, April, May & June & their hearts crushed every year when the playoffs come around. Giant fans don’t talk like you guys do, we just enjoy the championships. Since you only have trash talk & regular season wins, every year you mynabirds continuously flap & flap & come up short in postseason when it counts. Giant fans understand that talk is cheap, championships are won on the field.

    JustinTuckRule just owned all of the Eli Manning haters on this thread.

    How many playoff wins does Nick Foles, Tony Romo, and RGIII have combined?

    We seriously laugh out loud at you.

    I’ll take 27 INTs and 2 rings over 50 years of failure and two front offices that are laughing stocks of the NFL.

    He wont be healthy by mid season after he gets lit up for a few games. Lets just see.

  26. kev86 says: Jun 10, 2014 8:23 PM

    Iron Mann! You can call him whatever you want. He’s beaten the best and is a two time SB MVP. Huge wins on the road in games you dream your QB can someday win. Go Blue!
