NFL athletes are often looked at as some variation of a superhero/untouchable because of their millions of dollars, lavish lifestyles and overly public personas. However, they are no different than you or I in so many ways, and Mother Nature was quick to point that out earlier this week as Hurricane Sandy roared through the Northeast causing unthinkable damage. Damage that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was unable to escape.

Like so many in New Jersey and New York City, Manning's apartment complex was flooded due to a record-breaking storm surge brought on by Hurricane Sandy. As seen in the picture above, shared by @Jim_ICE on Twitter, Manning was assessing damage and preparing for a power outage (the flashlight is a dead give away).

The good news is that Manning and his family, including wife Abby and daughter Ava, are A-OK. He is expected back at the TIMEX Performance Center on Wednesday as Big Blue returns to practice.

    Read something on Vacchiano’s twitter account last night that says the Giants and Victor Cruz have agreed on the structure of a new deal, and are in the process of hammering out the numbers now.

      I had a dream last night that the deal was done for 7 years and 66 million. I don’t claim to be a prophet, I should probably be disturbed that I’m actually dreaming about this stuff.

    Meanwhile, the NFL announces that the NFC Defensive Player of the Week is Giants safety Stevie Brown.

    Brown has good ball skills, and he takes advantage of QB mistakes.
    Kenny Houston? Not yet, but he can be very good if he stays on his current path. It’s about snagging mistakes, and setting up QB to make mistakes.
    Brown is not there………..YET. Dude is a good tackler too. Between Brown and Hill safety is the least of this team worries.
