Eli Manning: The Most Disrespected Super Bowl Champion

As I have explained in previous articles, I am a die-hard fan of the New York Giants.  As a fan, I admittedly wear my blinders frequently for Big Blue despite my best efforts to remain objective, but, it drives me absolutely bonkers when I have to listen to pundits put down or disrespect Eli Manning, especially when they use misleading statistics to prove their points.   It has...
