07:56 AM ET 06.14 | Given the options, Eli Manning will play football -- even watered down informal workout football. Manning admitted that the lockout workouts the Giants have held this offseason on high school fields is "not great work" but stressed it is the best work possible as NFL players are forced to find alternative ways to prepare for a season without the help from coaches or access to their team facility due to the owner's lockout. Last week, a group of Giants that swelled to 30 players spent five days going through drills at Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell, N.J., the last scheduled player-orchestrated practice sessions. ... Manning over the weekend was host of the 34th annual Guiding Eyes Golf Classic. "It's not great work but it's better than doing nothing," Manning said.

And all the while, about 9 billion dollars are about to be thrown out the window because a bunch of out of touch prima donnas (players and owners) can't come back down to reality.

Of course the workouts are lacking, especially if the starting QB doesn't show up.
