Eli Manning

Rob made some great points last week. And I think I would suffer through another terrible season if it meant the Giants would get hot and win a Super Bowl. Here’s the problem though. I don’t want Jerry Reese running this team anymore. He doesn’t draft well and does nothing with draft picks in the later rounds. So from that aspect, I wouldn’t want them to win a Super Bowl because we’d be stuck with another few years of Jerry Reese.

Eli Manning was almost benched late in the 2007 NFL season, as his performance was putrid over his first four years leading up to that game, causing Tom Coughlin’s face to grow redder than Stalin at his worst. A few heroics from Plaxico Burress, David Tyree, Michael Strahan, and Justin Tuck (along with major meltdowns from Asante Samuel and Rodney Harrison) brought the Giants four playoff wins, including a Lombardi Trophy that year.
