Eli Manning an Unjust Scapegoat for Giants' Loss to Seahawks

The loss to Seattle had Eli Maning talking to himself.

After a stunning loss to Seattle, most fans in New York will blame Eli Manning.

It is easy to see why. Three interceptions is one more than he had all year, but it wasn't all Eli's fault.

Sure, it's easy to see that New York got surprised by a team they were supposed to beat by at least 10 points. Nothing in the way Seattle has played up to this game showed that they were ready for the Giants. That would have been true last year.

A year ago, the Giants came into Seattle and humiliated them to the tune of 41-7. Today's game showed that this is a different Seattle team and a different Giants team.

Injuries can be the difference between winning and losing in the NFL. The parity of the players is so close. The Giants have been one of the most injury effected teams this year.

Tom Coughlin's teams are always competitive, I fully expect them to take the NFC East. Seattle beat a good team on Sunday.

At the end of the first half, the Giants and the Seahawks were tied. Without two fumbles inside the 5-yard line, the score would have been 28-14  or possibly 28-7. Seattle let the Giants hang around in the first half, and many thought it would cost them the game. Then came the second half.
