“I think they have to come from within himself,” Reese told YES Network’s Kimberly Jones in an interview that will air today on “This Week in Football.” “When you have a seven-year veteran in the National Football League, you’ve won a Super Bowl, you’ve been the MVP of Super Bowl… I think he’s going to put the onus on him, and that’s where the onus is, it’s on him.”
Manning threw for 4002 yards and 31 touchdowns. But Manning, who just turned 30, enters his prime coming off a season with 25 picks. Manning was a victim of several passes going off the hands off his own receivers. He had five wide receivers go on injured reserve and lost his most trusted receiver -- Steve Smith –- for seven games. Also, he had to deal with an offensive line that was in constant flux due to injuries.
Manning admittedly pressed trying to make something happen at times. But if he throws five-to-10 fewer interceptions, the Giants could have won two to three more games.
“He needs to take care of the ball better and he knows that,” Reese said. “I think Eli tried to do too much late in the season after we had some of the receivers go out and the offensive line was a mixed bag for a lot of the season. I think he was trying to do too much and I think that cost him some turnovers.”
