With the Giants' portion of the 100 Greatest Players seemingly finished, it's time for Giants fans to take stock. And while mere inclusion is supposed to be some sort of honor, it has to said honestly: Whoever came up with this list is an idiot. The Giants' rankings are a travesty.
I'll give them Hakeem Nicks at 90. He is easily the best receiver on the Giants roster (though Victor Cruz may pass him next season) but he is young yet and just hitting his stride. The only thing that disgusted me about this was the fact that he was ranked in the same area with Chris Johnson and John Kuhn. Are you kidding right now?! I know this League is biased against the Giants, but anyone with a smidge of self-respect should be putting Super Bowl champions a little higher than that, especially one that had ten catches for over a hundred yards despite being double-teamed all night. If nothing else, did anyone happen to see his hail-mary catc...

BITTEN BY ACTING BUG?
The New York Giants quarterback recently said he's a huge fan of Modern Family, and if he were offered a chance to appear on it, he "might consider it."
Fans in Flushing were in for a treat yesterday when Eli Manning tossed the Fathers’ Day ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field. (I always thought the rule was Giants-Yankees; Jets-Mets? Whatever) He arrived at the mound with his daughter, Ava in his arm and lofted one of those famous Eli passes that we’ve seen go [...]
It's been a busy and newsworthy last couple of months for Eli Manning. He's appeared on "Saturday Night Live," hobnobbed with President Obama at the White House, and thrown the first pitch at a Mets game.
His latest off-field act has him strapping on a headset and ... well, doing something no other two-time Super Bowl MVP has done before.
On Tuesday morning...
When college coed Jessica Gormley went in to have her wisdom teeth removed, I'm pretty sure that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was on her mind on some level.
After the surgery, she was recovering and while her mother captured it on video, Jessica decided to ask Eli for a jersey and wanting to go to a New York Giants game:

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning worked a shift at an East Rutherford, New Jersey Dunkin Donuts on Tuesday.
Manning was working at Dunkin Donuts as a part of a new partnership he’s established with the nationwide chain. Before showing up to work, he spent some time at the Giants team facility working out.
“Obviously, I’ve tried to manage...
Adorable. Eli’s daughter hearts balls. Good luck with that one, Eli. I wonder what the other first words were. My money is on “blumpkin.”
Since yesterday was father's day, the New York Mets invited New York Giants starting quarterback Eli Manning to throw out the first pitch with his daughter, Ava Frances.
Watch as Eli fires in the pitch with his daughter in his arms:

N.Y. Giants quarterback Eli Manning had some help throwing the first pitch before the N.Y. Mets-Cincinnati Reds match-up on Sunday (Father's Day) in New York, as he brought his daughter Ava onto the field.The current Super Bowl champion quarterback sported a No. 10 Mets jersey. While holding his daugther, Manning lobbed a pitch towards David Wright just in front of the mound.
People picking up their usual morning coffee from a N.J. Dunkin' Donuts were probably asking for something a little stronger after they were surprised to see the guy at the drive-through window had a strange resemblance to Eli Manning. No, the shocked drivers didn't forget to wipe the sleep from their eyes because the grinning guy in the No. 10 New York Giants jersey...
Eli Manning was ranked as the No. 31 player in the NFL by his peers.
Manning was fifth among quarterbacks (only behind Brady, Rodgers, Brees and Roethlisberger), which isn't far from the truth (should be ahead of Roethlisberger). He passed for nearly 5,000 yards and had the fourth-highest yards-per-attempt average in football during an impressive, yet somewhat inconsistent regular...
Eli Manning used his arm to help the New York Giants win two Super Bowls so throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before Sunday's New York Mets game against the Cincinnati Reds sounded easier than the quarterback's laid-back demeanor. Manning was so confident, he threw the ball while holding his daughter, Ava, in his left arm while he did it. It was Father's Day...
After experiencing so much criticism leading up to this past season before he won his first and even second Super Bowl, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning can relate to the pressure that Miami Heat forward LeBron James has been coping with to win a championship.
“You can see that with LeBron and what’s going on in the NBA Finals, you lose one game, they are all over. They...
When looking at the immense amount of young talent in the NFC East, it’s hard to start anywhere but with the tremendous group of young receivers that call the NFC East home. Dez Bryant, DeSean Jackson, Victor Cruz, and Hakeem Nicks all have the potential to become the league’s top receiver. But there is more young talent in the NFC East. Are those young playmakers the best in...
The 2012 NFL season is almost here and many of us are getting ready for the upcoming fantasy football season. While we are still a couple of months away, there are a few people that have already started planning their rosters to become the ultimate fantasy star.
We will see several new faces this year, some of which you may rely upon to guide you to the finals. That said there are...
