Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and quarterback Eli Manning joined Mike's On in the 5 p.m. hour.

Manning holds a no-trade clause. Despite him stating on several occasions that he would not waive it, speculation about his future has been ramped up as the NFL trade deadline nears.

The NFL trade deadline is set for Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 4 p.m. E.T.

"I haven't thought about the trade scenario and hey, this organization is the only team I've ever played for and only thing I know," Manning told Francesa. "I love the Giants. It's hard to imagine being with another organization."

On Tuesday, the Giants traded cornerback Eli Apple to the New Orleans Saints for a fourth-round pick in 2019 and a seventh-round pick in 2020.

Manning has completed 69 percent of passes this season for 2,061 yards. The 37-year-old has recorded seven passing touchdowns and has been intercepted four times.

"We have to keep fighting, keep expecting to score every time we get the ball," Manning said.

The two-time Super Bowl MVP is in his 15th season with Big Blue.

Shurmur was asked about Manning's future.

"That would be news to me at this point," Shurmur said in response to speculation about his quarterback's future. "We're moving forward, we're trying to get everybody better, trying to do what we can to win this week."

The 1-6 Giants sit last place in the NFC East. Shurmur stated his message to concerned Giants fans.

"We are doing everything we can to get this thing turned around and win a game," Shurmur said.

"A game means nothing to this fan base, coach," Francesa responded.
