It didn't matter if it was Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow at quarterback. The New York Jets could do little against the New York Giants' relentless defense.
It would have been inconceivable early in Eli Manning’s career that anyone would suggest he was a better quarterback than his older brother. But now that Eli has won his second Super Bowl MVP award, he acknowledges that people sometimes tell him he’s better than Peyton. “I correct them very quickly,” Eli told Jason Cole [...]
The Giants spent last August watching key players leave practice with injuries, but they’re experiencing the opposite this time around. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, out since breaking a bone in his foot during spring workouts, is coming off the physically-unable-to-perform list. The team announced Monday that Nicks has passed his physical, giving him the go-ahead [...]
Have you ever seen a complete run of Super Bowl programs? From the first one, held in Los Angeles in January of 1967 (when it was called the ‘NFL/AFL world Championship Game’) to the one held in Indianapolis last February?
How about a complete run of programs signed by the MVPs of each game?
Ken Gardner of Kid Cannon Sports in Fremont, CA has one. He was at the National Sports Collectors Convention last week, showing off all 46 publications, each carrying the autographs of the MVP from that particular game.
He’s got a beautiful Bart Starr Super Bowl I, signed in silver Sharpie and just recently snared a Super Bowl XLVI issue bearing the autograph of Eli Manning, who led the Giants to another championship.
The list of Super Bowl MVPs is a long one. Some are legends, but others have faded from view.
If you think the price is too steep, you try it. We talked with Ken about his long-running quest that is now a little easier to continue.
When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took a shot at his NFC East rival, saying he expected his team to “beat the Giants’ asses,” John Mara didn’t take a shot back. Instead he made a joke of it. Mara told Mike Lupica on ESPN Radio that he wouldn’t guarantee anything more against the Giants’ games against [...]
CBS Sports analyst Phil Simms says that he believes current New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is already headed to the Hall of Fame.
“Here we were five years ago, before the Giants won their first Super Bowl, and all the talk that year was maybe the Giants need to bring another quarterback in and Tom Coughlin’s in trouble,” Simms told USA TODAY Sports.
“Now they both absolutely one day will go in the Hall of Fame.
“Eli has been a real clutch quarterback. When you talk about why, never underestimate who he plays for and how he’s been groomed.”
I agree that Manning has always been clutch, but I need to see him play the way he did last season, for at least another three to four years before I can say he deserves to be headed to the Hall of Fame.
The one thing that will certainly solidify Eli’s spot in Canton, is another Super Bowl ring, and that’s something that’s definitely possible.

Now you see, if this was the Jets, a cross-continent debate would have erupted. But those boring old Giants refused to play along, not taking the bait from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’s butt-kicking declaration. While Jones told his fans “Ya’ll should come to Cowboys Stadium and watch us beat the Giants’ asses,” the posteriors in…
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a guest on NFL AM on the NFL Network on Wednesday morning and was asked if the Giants are now a dynasty.
Manning responded by saying the Giants have plenty of things of improve.
“All we can worry about is getting better. We can’t worry about other teams or where the media is,” said Manning.
Manning agreed that it’s “kinda nice to win a championship and go under the radar.”
I wouldn’t expect any other answer from Manning. But he does have a point, even though the Giants have won two Super Bowls in five years, they still have a lot to improve.
Michael Vick sees a dynasty in Philadelphia, but the NFC East quarterback who has actually won a couple of Super Bowl rings doesn’t think his team is a dynasty. Giants quarterback Eli Manning was asked on NFL AM whether the Giants are a dynasty, and after first trying to avoid even talking about his team [...]
