05:25 PM ET 11.07 | New York Giants' coach Tom Coughlin was asked a number of questions during his Wednesday press conference about Eli Manning and the suddenly off-track Giants' passing attack. The veteran coach said he had "a nice conversation" earlier this week with Manning, whose 10-for-24 performance Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers was his worst since a Jan. 2009 playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. "We've been down this road before. He's going to get this thing right, and get our offensive team going again and get us on track. I fully believe that, I have great confidence in his ability to do that," Coughlin said. "The one thing that nobody has really picked up on, which is kind of interesting, is you don't get any continuity offensively if you don't make any first downs. We haven't had any first downs in two weeks. Make some first downs. You make a first down, you'll have a chance to get some rhythm, get some continuity, get into your play calling. When you don't have first downs, it's like throwing darts at a board. You need the continuity."

All QBs have ups and downs. Give the guy a break - 2 SBs rings in a large part because of his performance.
