We finally have an answer to who told Rashad Jennings not score at the end of the game. It happened to be his quarterback, Eli Manning.

1authorvince2 - Eli Manning Admits He told Rashad Jennings Not To Score TouchdownI’m not sure if Eli Manning was having a flashback to Super Bowl XLVI, or what, but we finally found out he was the one who told running back, Rashad Jennings not to score in the closing moments of the game.

This morning, I released a piece bashing Manning for his poor play, and this mental blunder just further proves my point.

For some reason, New York Giants fans have trouble ever placing blame on Eli. He’s almost given a protective shield against criticism based on his Super Bowl pedigree.

These are the facts though:

He misunderstood the Dallas Cowboys’ timeout situation, which led to him telling Jennings not to score. Causing much controversy over the day.

He threw the ball out of bounds stopping the clock (making no sense whether you were going to kick or go for it on 4th down) when he could’ve taken a sack.

I’m not blaming the play call, I’m blaming the execution.

Manning only completed 55% of passes for less than 200 yards. To me, that’s just not good enough. Take away the three Dallas turnovers and the game turns into a blowout.

Eli’s also in his 12th year. Why should the coaching staff have to remind him of the situation? At this point, he should almost be a coach on the field.

I just don’t understand why some fans can’t be realistic. He just simply didn’t play well.
