Eli Manning threw for the eighth most yards in NFL history against the Bucs, but 510 yards passing is simply unheard of these days.
That in itself sounds odd since this ha become a passing league where signal-callers throw for 350-plus yards passing every single week.
After the year’s we saw from Manning, Cam Newton, Matthew Stafford, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, it should not be a shock that so many teams are slinging it around 40 times every weekend.
This is a barbaric sport in which running backs only last on average three seasons before retirement and both starting running backs may not even play on Thursday.
Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) of the Giants and Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart (ankle), will not be practicing this week and are both unlikely (game-time decisions at best) to play in this must-win September game.
So, in steps Andre Brown for the Giants whereas DeAngelo Williams will fill in admirably like he has in the past. Cam Newton was the sup...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was furious at Tampa Bay’s Greg Schiano on a cheap shot at trying to get the ball back during a kneel down in last Sunday’s match up. Tampa went low on the Giants offensive linemen in an attempt to put a hit on quarterback Eli Manning. In NFL circles, there is a code for conduct. You don’t smack the back of a losing coach in celebration...
Eli Manning has accomplished a lot the last few seasons.
In winning two Super Bowls — two super bowl MVP’s — and becoming one of the best late-game quarterbacks ever, there’s few things that the 31-year-old quarterback has yet to do.
Over the last two seasons, Manning has led 11 game-winning drives for the New York Giants, the only team he has ever played for since he was...
Pretty much everyone watching at home knew Eli Manning was planning to take a knee on the final play of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. According to Manning, he informed the Bucs personally that a game-ending knee was in the cards. Manning joined WFAN in New York with Mike Francesa, and he discussed the controversial ending to Sunday's game, in which Tampa Bay's...
Total Eli Manning shinefest right here! I wouldn’t have went with Eli’s “Durh” face. Of the five QB phenomenons we know about I’d have to say “Griffin’ing” may be my new favorite. Guy is a stud.
Thanks to TerezOwens for the picture.

Despite upsetting my Carolina Panthers in week one and nearly taking down Eli Manning’s Giants in week 2, Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s head Coach Greg Schiano has drawn the ire of many fans and sports reporters a like. After blowing a 14 point halftime lead, Buc’s QB Josh Freeman threw an interception late in the fourth quarter that sealed the Giants come back. Eli Manning came to...
There has been a lot of discussion about the Bucs going after Giants quarterback Eli Manning when he took a knee in the waning moments of the Giants win.
Bucs coach Greg Schiano was unapologetic about it according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
"I don't know if that's not something that's done in the National Football League," Schiano said. "...
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke out against the kneel-down play to end games during a radio interview on Tuesday. The topic was brought up in response to the controversy that took place at the end of the Giants-Buccaneers game. Giants coach Tom Coughlin was upset with Bucs coach Greg Schiano for the way his players went after Eli Manning on the final play, feeling that the Bucs violated...

Eli Leads Giants Comeback over Bucs
The second game for the season started off poorly for the Giants, much like the opening night game against the Cowboys; this time around, the Giants were able to get it together and mount a successful comeback against the Buccaneers, pulling out the 41-34 win. The Giants were down 27-13 early in the...

The Headline: Giants overcome feisty Bucs to get title defense back on track
Well that was a little bit crazy, the Buccaneers looked like they were coming away with an upset win in the stadium against the defending champions before a 25-7 rally in the final quarter gave the Giants a much needed win. Under new coach Greg Schiano the...
There were many outstanding performances in Week 2, some were even record-breaking. Some with names that you probably don’t even have on your roster. And then there were those that disappointed the owners who drafted them so soon (and in most cases so high) on draft day. Here is a list of both studs and duds that stood out last week:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina cornerback Josh Norman expects he'll have Eli Manning's full attention Thursday night.
He said Manning probably won't be able to resist testing out an inexperienced rookie trying to cover Hakeem Nicks or Victor Cruz.
"I expect I'll have a target on my back, but I'm ready," Norman said. "I understand I'm in...
Mike Francesa spent, roughly, 3.5 hours yesterday discussing the Tampa Bay Bucs hit on Eli Manning and Giants Coach Tom Coughlin's subsequent anger at Greg Schiano. 4 hours in, Francesa had Manning...

As always make sure you hit us up and give us your...
After a rough week of going 0-4 and being ridiculed for my picks I here by accept the fact that I’m being identified as the second coming of Mike Greenberg. With that said I’ve got 4 picks this week looking to redeem myself and get to 4-4 on my picks and get back into the green.
Giants (+3) vs. Panthers
Eli Manning is a monster. Sure he had a bad first half but he killed it...
