PLAYERS: Eli Manning
TEAMS: New York Giants

Ron Jaworski of ESPN has Giants quarterback Eli Manning ranked as the 8th best quarterback heading into the upcoming season. “After a 2012 season in which he was not quite as consistent in some areas and other quarterbacks improved, I have dropped Manning to No. 8. But there’s no question he remains one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, capable of big-time throws in critical situations,” Jaworski said, via “While Manning is not No. 1 on my board, there’s no question as he enters his 10th NFL season, he’s a high-level quarterback with all the skills I look for. Manning plays the position the way it needs to be played to be successful. It starts from the pocket. I talked last year about Manning’s improvement in progression reading. One area he doesn’t get enough credit is the pre-snap phase of the game.” “In this era of defensive innovation and evolving and challenging schemes, the ability to control the game at the line of scrimmage is a critical attribute. Manning is outstanding at that. “Manning has reached the point in his career where we no longer need to discuss his play on an annual basis. He’s a steady, consistent, top-level NFL quarterback. He’s smart, he’s aware, and he can handle a high volume of offense. There are not many better quarterbacks than Eli Manning.” I believe the 8th spot is a fair for Eli.  While he can be inconsistent at times, he still might be the most clutch quarterback in the NFL.  But he doesn’t put up the stats that Aaron Rodgers does on a weekly basis.   Need NFL Tickets?

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...
