The New York Giants eschewed the opportunity to draft a quarterback of the future with the No. 2 overall pick, instead relying on an aging Eli Manning for another season.

Manning wants to prove the Giants brainstrust was right, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

"It was kind of a vote of confidence in that they trusted in me that I can play at a high level, can win games, take us deep in playoffs and win championships and win championships still," Manning told SiriusXM NFL Radio's The Opening Drive. "And you know what? I want to prove them right and I want to make them look smart and make them to have made the right decision in doing that. I want to go out there and do great things, do my job and lead this team and make guys around me better and do what I'm supposed to do to put us in position to win those games." 

Manning loves the offensive additions the Giants made.

"Now it's just a matter of, can we put it all together on game day?" Manning said. "Can we find ways to make big plays in critical moments of the game? Can we win those tough-nosed battles where, hey, maybe not everything's going perfect but can you find a way to win in the fourth quarter? Can you put it all together in crunch time and find a way just a way to get those victories? Those are the teams that tend to have great years, the ones that are just gritty and tough and figure out ways to win football games.

"I think, on paper, it's kind of all where it needs to be. Now it's a matter, hey, can we put it all into play and make it work on Sundays?"
