The Rap Sheet:
INDIANAPOLIS — Giants coach Tom Coughlin joked that he only got about 15 minutes of sleep last night and the same was probably true for quarterback Eli Manning. But that didn’t seem to matter, as both were riding the adrenaline from their 21-17 Super Bowl victory over the Patriots at this morning’s press conference.
Even amid the euphoria of a second Super Bowl title, Coughlin took time to voice his respect for the Patriots.
“The New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, an exceptional football coach and a great game,” Coughlin said. “These games are always this way. Last minute, fourth quarter – we talk an awful lot throughout finish, finish, finish, and the young man who won the MVP (Manning) certainly put our team on his back many, many times, and we finished in the fourth quarter with some kind of a score that would allow us to eventually win the game.”
Last night was the second time in four years that the Giants had outlasted the Patriots in a tight Super Bowl. The teams have also...

The lucky fan who won $50,000 because of the Giants' safety in Super Bowl XLVI has told TMZ that he plans to give all his winnings to charity.
INDIANAPOLIS — When Tom Coughlin yesterday was asked if he was coming back to coach another season for the Giants, he quickly reminded everyone it’s really not his decision to make.
“I certainly hope so, my intentions are to be that way,’’ Coughlin said. “I do have some ownership that...
Nobody knows if or when a Manning will play quarterback again inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
Even so, the New England Patriots and Tom Brady shouldn't want to face Eli Manning and his New York Giants again -- wherever the site may be.
Just like in Super Bowl XLII. Just like in Week 9 of the 2011 regular season. Manning's mastery over the Patriots continued Sunday with New York...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Back in August, back before the season began, Eli Manning was asked whether he considered himself an "elite" quarterback a la Tom Brady.Manning replied simply that he belonged "in that class." He was questioned and criticized for that, and _ shocking, right? _ it all became quite ...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Eli Manning and the Giants one-upped Tom Brady and the Patriots again, coming back with a last-minute touchdown to beat New England 21-17 Sunday night for New York's fourth Super Bowl title.
It was a rematch of the 2008 NFL championship, when Manning led New York past New England to ruin the Patriots' bid for a perfect season.
This was the first Super...
It’s pretty much a commercial for a “Wanna Get Away” moment.. I would expect this in LA but not New York, major Fail.. I want the blonde chick to have this gift from me.-TO

Not no way. Not no how. Win or lose tonight, Eli Manning is not even in the same breath as his older brother Peyton Manning.
I am absolutely amazed by how many people are actually saying this. It’s like they forgot how great Peyton is. Everyone is caught up in the moment, and I get that, but let’s get real. Eli Manning is not elite. Eli had one elite year. One year does no make...
You would be hard-pressed to find a quarterback playing better clutch football than Eli Manning has played during the Giants' surge to the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl is over, and after a sleepless night for winners and losers both, the cold business of football returns. Some of these players made buckets of money for themselves playing on the game's biggest stage, while others might have cost themselves dearly in their next negotiations.
Thanks to Bryan McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog, we have a team-by-team list of...
There's no need for me to rehash all the ins and outs of last night's game. Sports Illustrated's website provides some great analysis and commentary if you're online, and ESPN is talking it to death if you're watching tv. All I will say is that I love my team, I love that they wanted to win, and I kinda love that it was the Patriots that they stuck it to. I will...
Congratulations to the Super Bowl XLVI Champion, New York Giants! What a spectacular performance by Eli Manning and the rest of Big Blue. I’m going to relish this one for a long time. :-)

So I just read the news that Rick Ankiel signed with the Washington Nationals and I wanted to quickly get something off my chest before I forget about it in the morning.
