After taking a shot at Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday, Giants co-owner John Mara was asked if the Giants were "all-in" on sticking with the struggling Eli Manning.
"I don't know what you mean by going 'all in' with [Eli Manning]," Mara told reporters at the NFL Meetings in Manhattan. "He's been our quarterback. He was still under contract. I know he's the punching bag right now, but a lot of guys need to play better right now. It's not just him."
The 1-5 Giants are a mess, but Mara went out of his way to reiterate that it's not just Manning who's to blame.
"When you're 1-5, it generally means that everybody needs to play better. He's not alone. A lot of guys just need to do their jobs. We still believe in him. Everybody needs to do their jobs for us to be successful, and right now, that's not happening."
Manning has come under increased scrutiny after his performance during the Giants' Week 6 loss to the Eagles, when he finished 24 for 43 with 281 yards with zero touchdowns and one interception -- on a terrible throw on the second play of the game.
As he did most of the season, Manning checked down too early in Week 6, missed his targets badly at times, didn't throw donwfield much, and looked like a deer in the headlights on numerous occasions.
Head coach Pat Shurmur said earlier in the week that the Giants are sticking with Manning as the starter. And Mara said whether the team eventually turns to rookie Kyle Lauletta would be up to Shurmur and his staff.
