Don’t use the ‘D’ word in front of Eli Manning.
The Giants quarterback was direct in saying that his team is not a dynasty in an interview on NFL AM despite them winning two of the past five Super Bowls.
“No, no, we’re not,” Manning said on the NFL Network show. “We had a little break — the two years prior to last year we didn’t make the playoffs. We’ve got work to do. We have good players on this team, we have the potential to be a playoff team and to make a run once we get into the playoffs.”
Manning didn’t want to talk as much about last year or 2007. He was more content to speak on this year and what the Giants have to do in order to potentially win a third title in six years. The Giants were just 9-7 in the regular season, sneaking into the playoffs before eventually beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl last year.
“It’s a matter of going out there and proving that, and everybody going out there and playing to their level of play,” Manning said. “That’s what our challenge is, and we know each year if you don’t come out and give it your all and play to the best of your ability you’re not going to win football games. So we’ve got to maximize our talents.”Follow @NYPostsports
