Eli Telling It Like It Is

What did you think of the Cowboys and Eagles losses and what that does for your chances over the next seven games?

Well, we have to worry about the Giants. We have to handle our business; we have to go out there and play well and win games. We know that we have to play Philly again, the Cowboys and the Redskins again. Really what it comes down to is we have to focus on Atlanta this week. That’s all we can do is focus on them, go out there and play well and see if we could get a win and get back on a winning streak.

A lot of people are saying that with the losses of the Cowboys and Eagles last week that there is still hope for this season. But that is kind of the way you guys went into the bye week, right?

Yeah, we felt that all the way along. We knew we weren’t in an awful situation. It’s not exactly where we wanted to be, but we knew that there were still a lot of games left, a lot of season and if we went out and handled our business and play well, got hot again and got back to winning some games, we would be very much into the playoff hunt. We need to have that mindset. It really comes down to all we can worry about this week is Atlanta, go out there and play well and see if we can get a win.

Have you seen enough in the last couple weeks to give you any confidence that you can take advantage of the situation with the Cowboys and Eagles losing?

I have seen enough in our team and the way that we have responded and put ourselves in a situation to win the game against San Diego that we can play at a high level and win some games. I know in the NFL you are never out of anything, especially after nine games. There is a lot of football left and teams can turn things around. Teams can get hot at the end of the season. We have to go out there and start playing better football and we are capable of doing that.

You know this is not rocket science — the Giants are capable of not only making the playoffs but winning the division if they win the majority of their next several games. This is a team that likes to get hot when they are up against the wall, they take it seriously when it matters.

Now is the time to get focused on that finish line, and finish strong.

The Giants are completely capable of playing cohesive football, now let’s see it.
