New York Giants Eli Manning: 'I'm Not Looking For Attention'

When it comes to quarterbacks in New York, Tim Tebow gets most of the headlines. Why? Well, because he is Tebow. Mark Sanchez probably gets the second-most headlines, mostly because he is associated with Tebow and people think Tebow will eventually take his job.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning? He has two Super Bowl rings, including a brand-new one, and pretty much nobody talks about him. During a recent appearance on the Dan Patrick Show Manning said he was just fine with that.

"I'm not looking for attention. I'm not out there trying to make a scene or cause any uproar by any means. I'm just getting ready to help out the Giants and put us in a situation to win some games," Manning said.

Speaking of winning games, Manning knows how close the 9-7 Giants game to not even making the playoffs in 2011.

"I think the attitude is, Hey, we went 9-7 last year and hardly made the playoffs. We could have easily gone a very different route. We had to make a lot of fourth-quarter wins. And that's fun, those are fun to do, but we gotta be better. We gotta become a better team all around," Manning said.
