Eli Manning became the main face of the Giants after shocking Tom Brady and the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. But there is another face of the Giants that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will have to confront again in the bone-chilling hours Sunday night on the frozen tundra of...

Eli Manning makes unlikely key play with his feet in Giants' victory

Manning, G-Men punish hapless Falcons

Even Eli Manning's feet are dangerous. Manning punctuated his best pro season Sunday by throwing for three touchdowns and scrambling for a 14-yard gain that woke up New York's offense. He sparked the Giants to a 24-2 rout of the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC wild-card game Sunday, their first postseason victory since their Super Bowl upset of undefeated New England four years...

Eli Has a “Quiet” Day: Only Three TD Passes

Are we just getting used to Eli Manning being a playmaker? Are we taking him for granted these days?  Perhaps. His name didn’t get mentioned much after yesterday’s game, but yet he was the straw that stirred the drink again.  Three TD passes and 14-yard run to keep a drive alive. As usual, he didn’t play up his performance with the media, choosing to credit his teammates...

Giants-Falcons At The Half: Wake Me Up When The Game Starts

So far, Eli Manning is responsible for all nine points on the scoreboard. His ill-advised sprint backward into his own end zone and pass to nowhere while escaping the Falcons' pass rush opened the scoring, giving the Falcons a 2-0 lead. Then, after grinding out a long drive including a critical make on fourth and inches, Eli found Hakeem Nicks in the end zone for the go-ahead...

NFL MVP Award Should Be Split Between Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees

              Through most of the 2011 NFL season, the Green Bay Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers was the run-away favorite for the NFL Most Valuable Player Award. It wasn’t until the New Orleans Saints’ QB Drew Brees’ started shattering long-time passing records and a Packers loss to the Chiefs that it became a close race. In the fifty three year history of the AP MVP Award...

Packer Hand Wringing

This is how I will be until the Packers win the Super Bowl or poop all over the Lambeau Turf.   Ok Losers, Packer Fans and friends. Help us out here. Members of the Losers Bracket staff are in full Packer Playoff Hand Wringing Mode (PPHWM). We are having visions of the Packers’ magical ride end to the G-Men. Maybe it is our not so distant memories of 2007 and the bed wetting which...

Packers' McCarthy had perfection in his sights

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he would have kept his foot on the throttle if his team had the chance to complete an undefeated season. After winning their first 13 games, the Packers' bid to join the New England Patriots as the second team to go 16-0 in the regular season came to an end with a 19-14 loss at Kansas City. Green Bay (15-1) wrapped up the No. 1 overall...

Know Your Enemy: The Packers

It's going to be very cold when the Giants stroll into Lambeau Field for a playoff date with a favored Packers team on Sunday afternoon. That should sound familiar to those of you who followed the Giants on their run to the Super Bowl in 2008. Before the Giants knocked off the Patriots, they had to beat the Packers under very similar circumstances to advance to the big game...
