Eli Manning Denied Using "Trump" as an Audible

The New York Giants defeated the Los Angeles Rams 17-10 in London. In addition to showcasing our nation’s brand of football, there was speculation Eli Manning was showcasing our top newsmaker by barking out “Trump” during pre-snap audibles. CBS’ Dan Fouts brought it up on the broadcast and Manning was asked about it after the game.

Classic gotcha journalism.

Manning, a veteran, deftly sidestepped the issue like a, well, politician.

“Trump? Trump? No, no Trump, no Trump calls. We are using something very similar. But there is not a Trump, not an audible we are using. Nothing there, nothing there.”

We have no option but to believe him because no Manning would ever intentionally try to make headlines with line-of-scrimmage catchphrases.
