Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The New York Giants are the defending Super Bowl champions. Still, you wouldn’t know that with all the coverage favoring the New York Jets and international sensation and back-up quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Giants and head coach Tom Coughlin have always left their talking on the field, but quarterback Eli Manning did poke fun at all the hype in Cortland New York at Jets camp.

“Well every time you turn on T.V., it’s the Jets, you know Sports Center just camped out at the Jets complex,” Manning joked on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio in New York on Thursday. “I think they’re (ESPN) moving everything from Bristol to their complex over there.”

Manning was then asked if he would run around with his shirt off like Tim Tebow did after practice this week to get a little face time.

“No, I’m not jealous I told (Giants quarterback) David Carr to take his shirt off while we were running sprints after practice,” the two-time Super Bowl champ joked. “To see if we could get the same coverage.”
