Shepard says Giants have 'total faith' in Manning
New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard still believes in Eli Manning.
The 15th-year quarterback has struggled throughout New York's 1-5 start and some players have reportedly become frustrated.
But Shepard told NJ Advance Media he does not believe that is the case.
"I have total faith in Eli," Shepard said. "I haven't heard that once in this locker room. I haven't heard that from any individual player. That's just outside noise and stuff trying to break us apart.”
Manning has completed 68.7 per cent of his passes and thrown six touchdowns along with four interceptions in six games this season.
Shepard said the team have done a good job of "keeping everything together" in the locker room.
"We have total faith in him [Manning]," Shepard said. "We picked him as our starting quarterback at the beginning of the season and we're going to ride with that."
Shepard, who is in his third season with the Giants, has tallied 31 receptions for 341 yards and two touchdowns in 2018.
The Giants will face the Atlanta Falcons in week seven action on Monday.
