Ben McAdoo put his quarterback on blast following the New York Giants‘ lackluster performance against the Detroit Lions on Monday, but Eli Manning doesn’t appear too fazed.

McAdoo called Manning out directly for what he labeled “sloppy quarterback play,” stemming from a delay of game penalty taken on fourth-and-goal in the third quarter of Monday’s contest. The two-time Super Bowl champion joined WFAN 660 on Tuesday and addressed the comments made by McAdoo during his post-game press conference the night before, according to Tom Rock of Newsday Sports.

“I know Coach McAdoo knows I can handle it … You can’t be sensitive in this business,” Manning said.

Manning also owned the fact that his team has come under heavy fire for its performance so far this season, expressing an understanding for the disappointment radiating from its fan base.

“Hey, you lose games, only score 10 points, you deserve some criticism,” Manning said.

The next opportunity for the Giants to right the ship will come when the team travels to Lincoln Financial Field to take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 24.
