    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants quarterback Eli Manning drew a deep breath Wednesday before reiterating what he hoped was obvious.

    His attempt to dissuade the Chargers from selecting him with the first pick of the 2004 draft was not meant to insult San Diego, its residents, weather, culture or players.

    "I had nothing against San Diego or the people of San Diego when I made this decision," Manning said. "I had actually never been to San Diego prior to making the decision. I don't deny everything that I'd heard about it. It's beautiful, it's got great weather, it's a great place to live. I've been there since [for last year's NFL rookie symposium] and saw what it is like. My decision was not based on where I'd be living."</blockquote>
