Toomer weighs in on Eli's struggles

January, 18, 2011
Amani Toomer and Jeff Feagles recently signed autographs at the Broadway play "Lombardi" and both former Giants had interesting takes on two key components to the Giants' failure to make the playoffs -- the special teams and Eli Manning's interceptions.

Toomer said he thought his old quarterback "took a step sideways" this season but can fix the interception problem that plagued the Giants all season long. Toomer also noted that he didn't think Manning felt comfortable with his receivers with so many injuries to the receiving corps this season. But the Giants' all-time leading receiver in franchise history thinks his old team is very close to winning a Super Bowl again.

Feagles shared his thoughts on rookie Matt Dodge and what went wrong with the special teams.
