Eli Manning still has no regrets about the bold statement he made on the radio in August that set up a storyline for his entire season. In hindsight, he said, he was simply being “honest” when he said he was a Top 5 quarterback who belonged in Tom Brady’s class.   “I’m usually not into the ...

Patriots DBs prep for Giants QB Eli Manning

With the lowest-rated pass defense in the NFL and one of the league's top quarterbacks coming to town, it could be a busy Sunday for New England's defensive backs. The Patriots (5-2) host the New York Giants (5-2) on Sunday and expect a lot of passes from Eli Manning. Knowing the pass is coming hasn't helped the Patriots so far. New England is allowing 323 passing...

Eli Manning Doesn't Regret Comparing Himself to Tom Brady

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Eli Manning said Wednesday he didn't regret saying in August that he was in the same class of quarterbacks as Tom Brady. Manning, the Giants quarterback who will visit Gillette Stadium on Sunday, said it was a matter of being confident in his own ability as a player. "The question was if I thought I was an elite quarterback, and basically, I was just saying...

Eli Manning showing everyone he's in Brady's class

Eli Manning created some waves this summer putting himself in the same class with Tom Brady in a radio interview. It was instant tabloid material. How could Manning be in the same elite class with Brady? Eli had only won one Super Bowl compared to Brady's three, and the New York Giants were entering this season after missing the playoffs a very un-Brady-like two straight years...

Giants still feel like Super men

Ahmad Bradshaw Out Indefinitely? Still May Play Sunday

Jim MancariBGB Assistant EditorWhen reports broke Thursday that Ahmad Bradshaw would be out indefinitely with a broken bone in his foot, the entire New York Giants fanbase let out a groan.

Film Breakdown Shows Tom Brady Was Thrown Off By Steelers' Man Coverage, Disguised Blitz Schemes

The Steelers broke out a new game plan to stop Tom Brady and the Patriots' offense, and they executed it as well as any defense has against New England in quite some time. It was so effective that the Patriots are going to have to prove they can defeat similar schemes in the coming weeks because Pittsburgh's defensive looks will surely be replicated by the Patriots' future...

2011 New England Patriots: Trick or Treat?

We have just about completed eight weeks of the regular season, passed the Patriots’ bye week, and I think we can honestly say that we’re not sure exactly what we have in this team. Are they a Super Bowl team? A playoff team? The Pittsburgh Steelers exposed weaknesses on both sides of the ball, especially on the defense. The aggressive man-to-man, blitzing defense slowed down...

The final word on The Toronto series for 2011

I know the agreement is up next year, but this deal isn't going anywhere. I know some fans would love it to, but for the Bills to get almost double on their return for a home game, something will be worked out. Yes, it will probably be for a lower number than last time around, but I think this is the norm. Sure, it may change after Ralph Wilson dies, but as I've written before...

Stopping would be Giant step

The memories are sweet indeed. Tom Brady on his back five times in the Arizona desert, cussing out his would-be protectors. Jay Alford sacking him on the final drive that never was, the last-gasp heave to Randy Moss that went uncaught, the ball going over to Eli Manning for a triumphant kneel-down.

Jets to focus on Fred

There was some thought that with Buffalo’s spread attack, which is built on anticipation throws and timing that the Jets may take a similar approach in defending the Bills to their typical approach to the Patriots with their quick strike passing game.
