PILING ON

So Donovan McNabb thinks he's got it rough in Philadelphia? Try being Eli Manning. No quarterback in the National Football League is criticized and scrutinized more than the 26-year-old Manning, who has 19 touchdowns and 17 interceptions this season. The Giants' fourth-year QB has a 55.6 completion percentage.

No quarterback in the National Football League is criticized and scrutinized more than the 26-year-old Manning, who has 19 touchdowns and 17 interceptions this season. The Giants' fourth-year QB has a 55.6 completion percentage.

The latest person to weigh in?

Lawrence Taylor

.

"I don't know Eli; I'm not on the field with him," Taylor told the New York Daily News last week. "I can't tell you what goes on in the huddle, just from what I see on the TV set. [But] when you got that look on your face, like a ball in high grass - lost."

Taylor had a message for Manning: "Believe in yourself. Your team will believe in you if you believe in you. You throw a bad pass, 'Damn, I'm sorry. Next time that [pass] is going to be on the money. Guys, that one got away from me. I tell you what: I got a better one this time!' That's confidence. 'I just threw another damn interception? Hey, I'm going to throw more touchdown passes than interceptions.' Don't be scared to throw the next one."
