08:07 AM ET 07.24 | It was just a few weeks ago that Amani Toomer said Tony Romo was better than Eli Manning. [On Monday,] during an appearance on WFAN's Boomer and Carton show, Manning gave what I believe was his first take on the situation. "You've got to laugh about it," Manning said of offseason commentary and criticism in general before turning toward Toomer's comments specifically. "I saw Toomer not too long ago. I just walked up to him and said, 'You know what, I thought Ike Hilliard (was) a better Giants receiver than you were. Willie Ponder was probably a better receiver than you were.' ... You've got to laugh about it instead of getting upset. There's no point. Amani's been a good pal of mine and still is, so you've got to laugh about it."

What is with former Giants (except Strahan) always bashing the team when they get a microphone in their faces ?

What is with former Giant players (except Strahan) who take shots at their former team when they get a mic in their face ?

It was a **** statement to begin with. A guy with one playoff win compared to someone with 2 Super Bowl victories is NOT better.

Wait until someone says they think Tebow is better, then you will see some rage.

I'm sure he's concerned about what Jeremy Shockey thinks, too.

Cause they still want to be on it. They also would like a chance at a ring

Speaking of which.... The Iggles are in pursuit of Shockey.

Could also be the fact that the Giants don't keep "fan favorites" around on their team forever. The turnaround is also why they win.

That's an "insensitive" word. You can't talk about the earthworks in Holland that hold back the sea, either.

Well now, Willie Ponder now thinks Romo is abetter QB...
