A day after New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo floated the idea that he would
consider using some young players, and no position was being excluded, the
two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player said that he definitely wants to keep
playing.

Manning told reporters Tuesday after the team’s workout that he didn’t hear
coach Ben McAdoo’s comments on Monday’s conference call.

”I didn’t hear it,” Manning said. ”My goal is to prepare every week and do my
job. He said that he’s got faith in me and to keep grinding.

”So that’s what we’re doing. I want to play. That’s what I like to do. I like
to play football and play quarterback. I understand that I got a job to do and I
got to do it better and do it well and get wins and if you don’t, everybody’s
job is up for grabs in this league.”

McAdoo said that he was impressed that Manning was a little taken aback by
the suggestion of a possible replacement.

”What do you expect?” McAdoo said. ”I’m glad he said that. He’s a pro
football player, that’s what he should be saying. Eli, he’s our quarterback. I
have a lot of confidence in Eli. That hasn’t changed. But that doesn’t mean at
some point in time Cheap

look at him.

”Every position needs to be held accountable and every position needs to play
to a high standard. The same thing goes with the coaches. And obviously, when
you lose in the fashion that we lost (Sunday), it’s not good enough.”

Manning has made 207 consecutive starts going back to his rookie season. If
he starts this week, he will tie his brother Peyton for the second-longest
streak by a quarterback in NFL history. Brett Favre holds the record with 297
consecutive starts.

The Giants are still stinging from the 51-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on
Sunday.

Manning was asked about the relationship with his head coach.

”Coach and I, hey, we communicate well,” Manning said. ”We have great
confidence in each other and have a good relationship. I haven’t been tested. I
mean Cheap

 , I think, hey, he’s the coach. I’m the
quarterback and just trying to keep getting better and keep working.”

The Giants (1-7) face the winless 0-9 San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Santa
Clara, California.

”Hey, I think both teams need a win,” Manning said. ”I think you try to play
your scheme. You try to do things correctly, do things right. We got to play our
game. We got to be where we need to be. Make the plays that are there.”

Manning knows that he missed receivers Sterling Shepard and Tavarres King on
passes that could have been touchdowns against the Rams.

”I missed Shepard on a post route that we could have made http://www.philadelphiaeaglesteamonlines.com/richard-rodgers-jersey ,”
said Manning, who completed 20 of 36 for 220 yards and two touchdowns and an
interception Sunday.

”We had a couple other plays. We had drops. You had just different things
that keep you out of a good down and distance. There’s always little things.
There’s always things you have to correct and missed plays. We’re not in that
position where we can have too many of those.”

McAdoo agreed with Manning’s assessment of his play.

”It’s disappointing,” McAdoo said. ”We had chances down the field. We got to
make those throws and make those catches. It’s pro football. We got to catch
them on all opportunities like that. You don’t get many in the game. It’s just
incompletions and we got to clean them up.”

If McAdoo wants to go to Davis Webb, the third-round draft pick from Cal,
then Webb will be ready.

”My job is to be the best teammate I can be,” Webb said with Manning standing
in a locker immediately to Webb’s right.

”That’s my priority. I’m here to help the team win. That’s my role right now.
I’m confident in anything I do. I’m confident when I’m playing checkers. I have
learned so much from Eli. I’m grateful to have a teammate like him. Not many can
say they’re learning from a Hall of Famer and one of the best in NFL
history.”

Manning realizes that this has been a tough season – and there are still
eight more games to play.

”Hey, it’s tough for everybody Falcons

 ,” Manning said. ”It’s no fun losing games and
losing players and going through stretches where you’re not winning. So, a good
thing is we got eight more games and an opportunity to fix it.”

NOTES: The Giants reinstated cornerback Janoris Jenkins from the suspended
list. Jenkins was suspended for last week’s game against his former team when he
didn’t report back to the team in time for practices last Tuesday after the bye
week. … After the workout, the team announced the signing of linebacker Kelvin
Sheppard, who played in all 16 games for the Giants last season. The Giants are
without starting linebackers Jonathan Casillas (neck) and B.J. Goodson
(ankle).
