Link down/up sequences are pretty indicative of a bad switch or a bad
network cable.  NetworkManager won't cause those, but it will respond
to them.  Note that the "NetworkManager: <info>" messages always follow
"kernel: tg3" messages (which are coming from the driver).

I'd first try a new cable from your system to your wallplate (if you're
wired like that).  If there's no improvement, I'd have your IT people
check the wiring in the wall and on your wallplate.  If it's a typical
66-type punchdown wallplate socket, they sometimes get grungy with age
and a repunch is necessary.
