NFL Soup makes a great point: no one knows more about emerging from Peyton's shadow that little brother and two-time champ Eli Manning.
First love and history aside, Andrew Luck’s best bet to successfully follow the Peyton-era is to take a few pointers from Eli Manning. No one knows the cool shadow that Peyton casts better than Eli. No one has endured the comparisons more than Eli. And no one has escaped such a shade quite like Eli.
When the Giants traded for Eli during the 2004 NFL Draft, fans expected to see Peyton 2.0 on the field. Such was not the case, and the younger brother heard it from the fans and media alike. Names like “Eli The Terrible” followed him around as the demands of the New York media were not met. But Eli ignored it. He steeled himself against his detractors and just played football. Two stunning Super Bowl runs later, and Eli is now titled “Elite.” A young Luck would be wise to imitate that kind of resolve and thick-skin, even if the Indianapolis media i...

In my last article, I spotlighted 5 prospects to watch and who I believe can make an impact on the Giants in 2012 or beyond. In this article, I’ve put a little twist on it and have targeted 2 veteran players looking to latch on to re-establish themselves in the NFL.
With currently 16-18 veterans tryout for the Giants, I narrowed down my selection to 2 players who I feel have the...
Giants DE Osi Umenyiora took to Twitter to kindly wish rival Lesean McCoy a happy Mother’s Day.
Fans might remember the Twitter feud that developed last year between the two players, when Shady called Osi “overrated” and “soft”. It appears that the Giants DE hasn’t forgotten their beef.
Standout New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora tweeted earlier today, “Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!” Umenyiora, a British-born two-time All-Pro who the Giants took out of Troy University with the 56th pick in the 2003 … Continue reading →
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora obviously loves attention and holds grudges. These two traits in tandem certainly can make for interesting dialogue in regards to his contract and entertaining verbiage regarding his alleged enemies.
Take today’s shots fired at Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy.
The two have a rich history of ill content that often surfaces on Twitter.
Who says that a tall quarterback can’t be successful in the NFL? It seems to go against logic that having height like the Denver Broncos’ Brock Osweiler would be a detriment to his success as a quarterback. Osweiler is 6’7” which makes it much easier for him to see over the defense compared to the average quarterback who normally stands about 6’2”. On top of that, he...
You aren’t officially apart of Twitter until you’re involved in some Twitter beef. Giants DE Osi Umenyiora joined the social networking site almost two weeks ago. He threw a shot at Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. This continues an ongoing beef that started months ago with McCoy calling Umenyiora “soft” and Umenyiora responded by referring to McCoy as [...]
Anyone who has ever played a sport knows that you must have confidence. Sometimes one can be too confident in his/her or their teams ability. So do you think Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers is overconfident by thinking that the Chiefs will win the AFC West and that Peyton Manning is nothing to worry about? Maybe. That'll all get played out on the field.
John Elway says he had to ''sacrifice the short term for the long term'' when he used a second-round pick on Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler rather than drafting a player who could help Peyton Manning right away.
The boss of the Denver Broncos was joined by coach John Fox in an hour-long conference call with 6,000 season ticket holders Tuesday.
The hits just keep on coming this NFL offseason. Free agency started off with a bang, with the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, the Saints and bounty scandal, and the draft. The Seattle Seahawks have already signed nine of their ten draft picks, including first round pick Bruce Irvin, more on him later. What a difference a year makes huh? This time last year we, as fans, weren’t worried...
