This 53 man roster is not pretty

I have been polite this preseason.  Out of respect for the players, front office, & coaches, I have urged patience and time to let 2014 play itself out.  But along the way a few more developments have occurred that are noteworthy: 1) We have not seen any QB pressure from the first string Defensive Line.  In particular, JPP has been mostly silent, offering ephemeral half-bursts...

Eli Manning believes that Joe Flacco is an elite quarterback. (Sort of)

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is one of the most polarizing players in today’s NFL.
