The Giants have had a contemptible, humiliating season, with much blame to go around. But on Tuesday afternoon, the team seemed to abruptly lay many of its problems at the feet of its best player of this century, Eli Manning .

Making fun of the New York Giants and Eli Manning has become a recent NFL fan pastime, but when it comes to pranks, there is arguably no one better at them than the veteran quarterback.

We've been over this before. He's painted linemen shoes purple. He got some teammates to box in a kicker's car. He and his brother Peyton Manning reprogrammed Kevin Nealon's cell phone after Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary show. The truth is Manning is not-so-secretly evil.

The latest Manning prank story comes from the QB himself. At a Giants town hall, he told this story, per the Daily News:

Peyton Manning throws his full support behind Joe Flacco

Peyton Manning throws his full support behind Joe Flacco Peyton Manning was the Denver Broncos’ most successful quarterback since current general manager John Elway led them to two Super Bowl titles in the 1990s. When Manning talks, it makes a ton of sense to listen. He did just that recently in talking up new Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco. In fact, Manning seemed to throw his full support behind the much-maligned signal caller. “It’s a fresh start. He handled it well last year. He was a pro and tried to do the best for the team,” Manning said, via Troy Renck of ABC 7 in Denver.

Eli Manning had the support of his father Archie in electing not to start Sunday's game just to prolong his streak. The patriarch of the Manning family last spoke to the youngest of his three boys Tuesday morning as Eli was about to go into the Giants offices and turn down McAdoo's offer from Monday for

New York Giants ' starting quarterback Eli Manning sustained a nasty-looking head gash during a According to ESPN, Manning collided with Giants running back Brandon Jacobs just before he was hit by Jets linebacker Manning took the blame for his injury, which apparently came on a busted play.

He said he played one of his favorite pranks in his career on Andre Woodson, a rookie sixth-round QB picked out of Kentucky in 2008.

Woodson showed up late to a voluntary OTA and missed the quarterback meeting. So Manning excused himself to the bathroom and cleared out Woodson's locker, grabbed a piece of Giants stationary and wrote "come meet me in my office, bring your playbook - TC" (as in Tom Coughlin).

The prank worked so well that Woodson brought the paper to Manning and asked him what to do. Manning said I guess you should go upstairs and apologize. But when Woodson actually began walking up the stairs toward Coughlin's office, Manning raced and grabbed his new teammate and told him it was all a gag.

"I felt bad for a little bit," Manning said with a laugh.

Saquon on OBJ trade: ‘We’ve even grown more as a team’

Saquon on OBJ trade: ‘We’ve even grown more as a team’ The Odell Beckham trade seems to be bringing the Giants together. And that's not a knock on the wideout, who engineered his way out of New York. It seems simply to be an acknowledgment of the reality: the Giants won't have their most talented pass-catcher in 2019. They'll have to figure out how to unify in his absence - and perhaps excel. But Beckham's absence hasn't inspired Barkley to take on a bigger leadership role. "Whether he was there or not, I think my focus was to be a leader of the team," the second-year running back said.

The New York Giants benched Eli Manning on Tuesday afternoon. Benching Eli and giving Smith and Webb the chance to play with five games left in the season is a chance to get a closer look, via actual game film, of what kind of players they can be, especially Webb since they spent a third-round

New York Giants QB Eli Manning talks about what he 's seen so far with rookie Daniel Jones after Giants minicamp on Wednesday afternoon. Justin Tuck says Giants fans should be patient with Daniel Jones and that it's a shame that Landon Collins isn't a Giant this season.

Making a teammate think he was about to be cut? EVIL!
