Eli Manning apparently had to get used to playing in Philly, no shock here.

The Giants QB told Steiner Sports on Saturday;

“It takes a little while to get used to in Philly because you’re not used to seeing a 9-year-old cursing at you and talking about my mom and stuff. Once you get used to it, it’s fine. It just takes a year or two. Now, he’s 24 (years old) and training his four-year-old to curse at me.”

Make of Eli’s quote what you will. I personally find him to be perpetuating a narrative that’s a tale as old as time. We’ve heard it before and we’ll hear it again. Only now the voices will be louder because our football team is as solid as steel.

Hey Eli, get your head in the game and quit crying about your mama jokes. We the men, women and children of Philadelphia will see you in November.
