I was thinking about this during the Super Bowl on Sunday evening, watching one of the Quarterbacks from the class of 2004 help drive his team to another championship. The most notable and popular Quarterback draft class talked about for what seems like forever is the 1983 class. A group that was headlined by Dan Marino, Jim Kelly, and John Elway is certainly worthy of that recognition. All 3 are Hall of Famers and each has left their mark in NFL history. However after the Super Bowl XLVI win by Eli Manning and the Giants, I would argue that the class of 2004 is coming on strong and in someways already surpassed them. Perhaps when Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, and Philip Rivers are finished with their NFL careers, it may be the best QB class ever. Perhaps we’re jumping the gun a bit now considering these QB’s currently playing still have many years left but that’s a big reason why I say it. All 3 just finished up their 8th years in the league and have a combined 5 Super Bowl appe...

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.
Now that the Giants have won the Super Bowl and Eli Manning was named the game’s MVP, it’s fun to look back at some of the things said before the season began.
If you follow fantasy football closely, you may recall that Eli’s draft stock fell after he failed to throw a touchdown in the preseason. The New York media strongly emphasized his preseason struggles, telling Giants...
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

Eli Manning and Wife Go To Disney
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.
