Giants Vs. Packers, NFL Playoffs 2012: Eli Manning Not Making Guarantees

Trash talk and guarantees are not his style, and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is sticking to that this week as the Giants prepare to face the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers Sunday in an NFC Divisional Round playoff game.

Manning appeared on ESPN Radio in New York with Michael Kay on Monday. He wouldn’t go anywhere near Jason Pierre-Paul’s remark that he was “sure” the Giants would beat the Packers.

"I think obviously there is nothing wrong with being confident. That’s the mindset of everybody when you go into the game that you are going to win," Manning said. "You don’t always want to have to talk about that and give the other team stuff to give the other team bulletin board material, but hey he thinks we are going to go out there and we played this team and we played them close and we feel we are playing better now and we can go out there and give ourselves a good shot to win."
