T-Rock's Take On The Giants:
Eli Manning may be the undisputed leader of the Giants, but they're hoping no one else follows him to the sickbed.
BEST OF MAXIM
Talk to anyone on the New York Giants about Eli Manning and the word unflappable is bound to come up. Nothing bothers him.
Any doubters should talk to Victor Cruz. Three plays into the season, Cruz dropped a third-down pass and sulked. Manning walked up to him and told him to forget it.
Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee says Manning is the same now as he was when he was the No. 1 pick...
Eli Manning has shaken off his 24-hour "bug" and will return to practice with the Giants later this morning. That's the word from the Giants, who said via Twitter that their franchise quarterback is in the building at their Meadowlands practice facility this morning and expected to be on the ...
He has one Super Bowl ring and has led his team to another NFC Championship Game, but many still aren't ready to call Eli an elite quarterback. Is he any good?
After a monumental upset by the New York Giants against the heavily favored Packers last weekend, Eli Manning leads his team to the West Coast to battle the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC Championship. This will be another rematch from the regular season that came down to the final play of the game. With 42 seconds remaining in the previous contest, Manning had the Giants in a position...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tough luck, Frisco fans. Eli Manning's tummy is just fine.
(01-20) 21:14 PST - Will the 49ers stop Giants quarterback Eli Manning?
But don't fret, Niners fans.
The more relevant question might involve San Francisco's ability to stop New York's rushing attack Sunday in the NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park.
Let's stop with the Eli Manning hysteria.
First, in August, there was a collective harrumph! when Eli had the gall to answer with bravado when asked during a radio interview if he considered himself a top-10 or even top-five quarterback.
"Yeah," he said at the time, "I think I am."
This was followed by a pointed question of whether or not Eli considered...
Are there any cliched, meaningless generalizations that we have missed when it comes to Eli Manning and Alex Smith? Whatever labels they may wear, Manning and Smith are here.

With the possibility of heavy rains forecast for Sunday’s NFC championship game in San Francisco, the prevailing assumption is that the run-first San Francisco 49ers would have a distinct advantage over the pass-first New York Giants.
However, looking deeper, that might not necessarily be the case.
As of late Friday morning, it seems that mother nature might...
We’ve reached the AFC and NFC Championship round, which leaves four starting quarterbacks left playing. Each guy is distinctly different, and each guy has a plethora of YouTube Tribute Videos.
So today my friends, we are going to be picking one of the many Tribute videos (preferably the most recent) for each quarterback and voting on whose is the best. For those of you in disbelief...
