Eli Manning isn’t a big talker, but when he does have something to say, his Giants teammates listen.
On Tuesday, Manning implored the Giants to take care of personal business early so they
can focus on preparing to play the New England Patriots in the
super sequel in Indianapolis on Feb. 5.
“I just told them a little bit how to prepare for this,” said
Manning, one of 15 Giants who played in the Super Bowl XLII win over
New England (he was the game’s MVP). “Just handle your business with tickets and get that
stuff done, and just a few things on the mindset of this week. We
have to have great preparation. Prepare this week like you are
playing the game this week.”
Safety Antrel Rolle was receptive.
“He doesn’t say much and when he says something, he means it,”
Rolle said, according to The Associated Press. “It’s about business and that’s basically what the
message was about. We’ve got to go out there and take care of
business. Everything else is for the spectators. Everything else is
for your family and for your friends. We’re going out there to take
care of business.”
