New York is slowly becoming Eli Manning’s city when it comes to football. The Jets have commanded plenty of attention since Rex Ryan arrived in the Big Apple, but Eli and the Giants have won a Super Bowl recently and are close to reaching another.
There are rumors that the Jets will be interested in Peyton Manning should the Colts quarterback become available in a few months. When asked about the possibility of his brother playing quarterback in the same city as him, Eli seemed open to the idea.
“I don’t know what is going to happen in that situation,” Manning said on ESPN 1050. “Would it be fun? Yeah, I think it would be interesting to have your brother in the same city playing football together.
“It would be interesting. I am not saying it is going to happen or I want it to happen, but to have your brother that close to you and playing in New York would be very unique.”
I believe the Colts will draft Andrew Luck and end up releasing Peyton Manning. I think they’d rather keep hi...

Being both a big mouth and a football-obsessed member of the media for 18 years, I have spent a fair amount of time trying to figure things out in the NFL. Over 3,100 episodes of the Bob and Dan show since 1999 on Sportsradio 1310 the Ticket on Dallas airwaves at three hours per show has put us dangerously close to the Malcolm Gladwell "10,000" hour rule. That rule argues...
Paul Schwartz on weather slowing New York Giants against San Francisco 49ersAPHOLD ON:Mario Manningham let a pass slip through his fingers when the Giants met the 49ers in Week 10. If he and his fellow receivers can’t hold onto the ball in what is expected to be sloppy conditions Sunday, Eli Manning and Big Blue could be walking off the field at Candlestick Park losers again.By...
The 15-1 Green Bay Packers (who peaked in September-November) have indeed been exited from the NFL Playoffs by the New York Giants (who are peaking now), and Hakeem Nicks was indeed wide open on an end-of-half Hail Mary.
So much for the Green Bay dynasty; as former GM Ron Wolf would say, the 2011 Packers proved to be just a fart in the wind.
Deal with it.
The silver lining is...
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning missed part of Wednesday's practice session with a stomach illness.
Coach Tom Coughlin calls it ''a stomach bug, hopefully a 24-hour deal.''
The team is preparing to play the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday for the NFC championship.
Manning is on the Giants' injury report for the first time this season as a limited...

Archie is certainly willing to talk and this week he says his son wants to remain in Indy:
“Peyton kind of likes his roots in Indy,” Archie Manning said yesterday after watching his youngest son, Eli Manning, lead the Giants to a 37-20 Divisional victory over the Packers at Lambeau Field. “We’ll see what happens there. If that doesn’t work and he can get healthy we’ll...
The year of the quarterback: fans thought 2009 was that season with ten quarterbacks amassing 4,000 yards or more. QB’s such as Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees made it look easy, dropping balls into places where they’d never been before. Even QB Kyle Orton, who seemingly couldn’t throw the ball effectively downfield, passed for 3,802 yards in 2009.
If today’s game is anything like the Dec 4th meeting between these two clubs (or yesterday’s Niners-Saints game) make you have 911 on your speed dial. It won’t be for the faint of heart.
Our staff has some unique angles on the big showdown in Green Bay…..
Rich Resch: If Eli Manning and the Giants’ pass rush play their A-game…yada yada yada. You know the deal by now...
Warning: Wearing a bright white shirt/tie combo will only accentuate your gnarly looking teeth.
Hearing my fave, #18 Peyton Manning will not return to #NFL. Wow. #Colts

Shale BriskinBGB ContributorNow that the New York Giants have upset the Super Bowl favorite Green Bay Packers, many comparisons are being drawn between this team and the team that won Super Bowl XLII over the Patriots, which was also in upset fashion. The coaching staff and most of the player personnel between the two teams are very similar and this current group of Giants looks...
