Tom Coughlin Gets Support From QB Eli Manning After Jagaurs Loss

Giants coach Tom Coughlin is under fire after the team’s 25-25 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Coughlin’s quarterback Eli Manning came to his defense the day after the Giants blew a 21-0 lead to the Jaguars, who entered the game 1-10, Jordan Raanan of the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Eli Manning was asked if his coach deserved some of the blame, and why. He went with no.

“I think the players, we are playing hard, we are competing, we are right in here close to winning these games, a lot of games,” Manning said during a conference call with reporters on Monday. “It is not his fault that we don’t finish games. It is not his fault I fumbled for a touchdown or Larry Donnell fumbles for a touchdown. That is not his doing. We have been right there. It is not his fault during San Francisco [that] we don’t score from the 3-yard line.

“We’ve got good plays. We got the ball in receivers’ hands. We’ve got to make plays, we’ve got to make better plays, we’ve got to make smarter plays.”
