New York Giants’ Eli Manning Rocketing up Some of NFL’s All-Time Lists
December 15th, 2014 at 3:00 PM
Despite the typical "Eli Manning is a turnover machine and makes stupid faces" narrative being crammed down our throats on a regular basis, the New York Giants quarterback is silently rocketing up some of the league's all-time lists. And with a 250-yard, three-touchdown performance in a 24-13 victory over the...

Steve Silverman: New York Giants’ Eli Manning is Bad Beyond Repair, Even for Ben McAdoo
June 22nd, 2014 at 9:00 AM
We often joke here at Giants 101 that the Madden/Social Media generation has destroyed the average football IQ and that it's morphed fans into having unrealistic expectations, skewed views and a general misunderstanding of the game. However, that actually extends beyond the casual fan to even some of the most...

New York Giants Linebacker Love: Looking Back on the Crunch Bunch, Big Blue Wrecking Crew

December 18th, 2012 at 5:30 PM
***PHOTO1*** The New York Giants never had a chance to make a comeback against the Atlanta Falcons on the road last Sunday. The simple, and usually comforting reality surrounding this team is that it will live and die by the right arm of quarterback Eli Manning. When Manning is on,...

New York Giants Pass Rush Comes Up Lame In Loss to Cincinnati Bengals
November 12th, 2012 at 2:45 PM
***PHOTO1*** The New York Giants defense is built on the pass rush. Jason Pierre-Paul, Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck are key cogs in a unit that has relied heavily upon turnovers to keep them in games. Part of forcing those turnovers is putting pressure on the quarterback, which was a...

Washington Redskins’ Barry Cofield on New York Giants’ Eli Manning: “He’s Like Joe Montana”
October 22nd, 2012 at 8:45 AM
The Washington Redskins had Eli Manning dead to rights on Sunday afternoon. He was getting hit, sailing the ball, making uncharacteristically poor decisions at times and tossed two very bad interceptions. But once again, the New York Giants quarterback rallied his team late in the fourth quarter and dropped a...

The San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants. One casual observer we know said it best: "What is this the 1980's?" ***PHOTO1*** Pretty darn close. Or at least a bizarre rendition of it which features the two ball clubs in one another's bodies. The New York Giants built their success in the 1980s...
