New York Giants
Dec. 14, 2008 was the last win at Texas Stadium for the Dallas Cowboys franchise. The game was played against Eli Manning and the New York Giants. In that month, December 2008, almost nothing went right for the Cowboys. But, one thing that did was this Sunday Night affair against their bitter rivals.
In that game, the Cowboys battered, bruised, and flat-out beat up Manning to the tune of eight sacks. DeMarcus Ware had three. Greg Ellis had 2.5. Bradie James and Chris Canty each had one, and second-year LB Anthony Spencer even picked up one half of a sack. The Cowboys won that game 20-8, over the then Super Bowl Champion Giants, and felt that they had cracked the code on how to beat the younger Manning brother: Beat him up. But, since we have mentioned Texas Stadium and Greg Ellis in the opening two paragraphs of this story, it has been a while since that night.
Since then, the two teams have squared off six times. Manning has won five of them, losing to Cowboys' back-up QB Jo...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Eli Manning is no longer living in the shadow of his big brother. Far from it. The New York Giants quarterback enters the kickoff to the NFL season against the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday night as a two-time Super Bowl MVP. He's now unquestionably among the league's elite after leading Tom Coughlin's team to two titles in five seasons, and a third...
Preseason is over and the one glaring signal coming out of preseason is the NFC East is most likely going to send one of its teams to the Super Bowl. It’s not based on the play of the offenses in the division, but the play of the defenses. Specifically the pass rush of the every [...]
CLOWN COVER, BRO
The New York Post's NFL preview edition came out on Tuesday, and their cover accurately summed up the offseasons of both of New York's teams.
On the left is Eli Manning of the Giants dressed in a suit and driving a nice convertible, along with his pair of Lombardi trophies.
On the right is Rex Ryan of the Jets driving an old, broken down looking car wearing green and...
Poor Eli Manning won a Super Bowl and is still the third most talked about quarterback in New York-- his words, not mine. I would call him better than the other two, but we have yet to find out.The Giants have weapons at almost every position, and if Martellus Bennett ever puts some effort into the games, they will have weapons at every position.Meanwhile, the Jets have a quarterback...
At the risk of making myself look like an idiot, I am going to offer up some predictions for teams I think will be in the playoffs at the end of the 2012 season even before the season begins. I hate pre-season predictions but figured what's the fun in life if you can't make a fool of yourself a few times, so here goes.
From the NFC East: The NY football Giants. I am...
Finally NFL football is back! A late rally by Eli Manning and the defending champion New York Giants came up short on this opening Wednesday kickstart to the 2012 campaign.The long awaited divisional matchup began in lackluster fashion, the only touchdown in a yawner of a first half coming on a Tony Romo toss to Kevin Ogletree from ten yards out with 2:33 left before intermission...
To say a player underachieved one must first have a clear understanding of what is the prescribed level of achievement. In the NFL this level is Super Bowl wins. The bar has not changed and regardless of the player or his fanatic following it will never change, the goal has always been to win Super Bowls. Using this measure Peyton Manning has underachieved magnificently and Philip...
The New York Giants are set to kick off their 2012 campaign tonight against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium and hope to start the season the way they finished the last one, as the defending Super Bowl champs aim at a 1-0 start in the division and on the season.
New York had yet another one of the most thrilling playoff runs in NFL history, led by Eli Manning and capped...
As much as Dallas failure is enjoyed and appreciated on all levels, there’s something to be said for seeing the defending champs lose their home opener after an extravagant ceremony where Eli Manning shrugs his shoulders in triumph. A home opener loss has yet to happen since the league set up its Thursday night kickoff special at the house of the Super Bowl winner. In fact...

I'm a little late turning the TV on for the big NFL opener tonight. I was down at the liquor store trying to find a 30 year old bottle of whiskey I could have for my house in order to impress a bunch of ******* I actually hate when it really comes down to it. If nothing...
