Locker Room Buzz: New York Giants
By Dan Graziano
CHICAGO -- Observed in the locker room after the New York Giants' 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears:
Emotional Eli: After his latest three-interception game raised his league-leading total to 15 for the season, Giants quarterback Eli Manning took the blame for the loss. "I feel like I'm not doing my part," he said. "That's the frustrating part. I feel like our guys are fighting hard, and guys are doing their parts, and I need to start doing mine."
Down with the ship: Safety Antrel Rolle said he's sticking to his belief that the Giants can win the rest of their games, even though he said that two weeks ago. "People are counting us out, and I don't blame them," Rolle said. "Outside looking in, I'd probably count us out, too. But we can't. We have to count ourselves in."
Injury update: Running back Da'Rel Scott injured his hamstring late in the game, and after the game wore a protective sleeve on his right leg while he received help getting dressed. He also had crutches propped near his locker. Wouldn't look for him to play again any time soon. The Giants will probably be hunting for a running back again next week.
