The New York Giants lost week one to the Dallas Cowboys, but was that really a bad thing for Eli Manning and company?

New York Giants Morning Huddle: Week 1 Loss Blessing In Disguise For Eli Manning? (Video)Sometimes we all need a wakeup call, no matter how that wakeup call occurs.

It allows us to put things back into perspective, and create a clearer vision toward what our goal represents.

New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning already has the resume to prove his credibility as a player that can be relied on. After all, the quarterback position is one that relies on hope.

What has Ryan Tannehill, Jay Cutler, or Matt Stafford done to deserve their big paydays?

Not much.

But their ability and the lack of trustworthy quarterbacks on the market still provide a glimmer of faith for the future for those three franchise’s. Even though we’ll never see any of the three raise the Lombardi trophy at any point in their respective career’s.

So, getting back to Manning, we all know the potential he provides the Giants. There is no need to repeat his achievements.

In the team’s week one loss to the Dallas Cowboys, his inability to take a sack on a 3rd-and-goal situation, while also telling running back Rashad Jennings not to score, earned him the “blame of the game” award.

Since that embarrassing and highly criticized moment, Manning has displayed almost near perfect quarterback play.

Completing 69% of his passes in the last two games (factor in drops by a bevy of Giants receivers) to go along with four touchdowns, and a passer rating of 100 in both affairs.

Manning looks like a player with an extra something to prove.

As hard as it is to admit, could that week one stunner actually have been a good thing for the 34-year-old quarterback?

It sure looks like it.

Here’s my quick video on what might prove to be a GOOD loss. Something you may have never heard.
