NEW YORK – I am going to ask you a very simple question, as the title reads. Can Giants QB Eli Manning finish his career with 4 Super Bowl Championships? Win 4 rings, maybe 4 Super Bowl MVP awards? In five years from now, will you remember that I wrote this article and told you Eli Manning will be in discussion for greatest NFL QB of all-time? If Giants QB Eli Manning wins 4 Super Bowl Championships, he is immediately vaulted onto the top ten NFL quarterbacks of all-time list, where he lands on that list is another question but he’s on that list. Nevermind those silly polls the NFL official website had last year that infuriated Giants fans, as Easy Eli remained cool as ice. Eli Manning is already an NFL Hall of Famer right now, today and he is in the prime of his career. I really think he can win four rings. I think the New York Giants are going to win 2 more Super Bowls by 2017. The G-Men might even win a championship at home, when New York/New Jersey hosts Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife stadium in 2014.
A Giants vs Jets Super Bowl in East Rutherford would be bigger then Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Forget about the ticket prices. I can’t even imagine what a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl is going to cost the fans as it is. If the Giants are playing the Jets, even the upper tier seats might go as high as $10,000 each in New York City. There is no doubt in my mind that this would be the highest grossing event in human history and a $300 million dollar boost to the local economy.
All of this talk eventually leads to the dynasty team discussion and rightfully so, in my opinion. The time table for winning 3 Super Bowls is a decade. You have a ten year window in which to win 3 Super Bowl rings to be considered a dynasty team. The Giants have won 2 Super Bowl rings since 2007 and have until 2017 to win just one more. I believe they will win two more rings as you know. With Jerry Reese locked down at the GM position and Tom Coughlin as the leader of the team once again, the Giants are in a nice position to do some damage for a very long time in the NFC East and the NFL in general. These offseason moves have been outstanding for the most part and it’s not over yet with the draft coming up in two weeks. Look for Big Blue to have another superior draft in 2012.
Do you think QB Eli Manning can retire with 4 Super Bowl rings one day?

NEW YORK – Most of our readers know what a sports special is for this website. It is when we cover something outside of New York Giants football but New York related news. New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada retired this week (1/24/12) after 17 years in the majors. I don’t know how many dozens of games I’ve seen him play in over the years at the stadium. He always handled himself with class and was a true leader in the locker room. He lead by example and was a good friend to his team mates. I think Jorge has a good plan with spending this summer with his family. I realize some of our readers might not be Yankee fans but I am and this is a significant moment in Yankees history. All that fans can do is wish him well on the rest of his journey in life. It’s so rare that a player sticks with one team their entire career these days, it’s refreshing to know it hasn’t vanished altogether from Major League baseball. We salute you Jorge.
Don’t even bother asking me if Jorge Posada should be in Cooperstown, my answer is yes. What do you think I’m going to say? Bernie Williams belongs in the Hall of Fame too, along with Don Mattingly and the body of work for the game of baseball he’s put together. But this story is about Jorge Posada, thank you Jorge for all of your years in pinstripes and leaving the game on your own terms. You will forever be known as one of the all-time greatest Yankees in New York history. It simply will not be the same without you on the team. God bless you and your family.
Did you know that Derek Jeter was Jorge Posada’s best man at his wedding? It’s true.
Here are some of Jorge Posada’s accomplishments.
5X World Series Champion
5X All-Star Player
5X Silver Slugger Award Winner
17 Years with the Bronx Bombers
7X American League Champion Pennants
1990 Drafted by New York Yankees
If you’re a Yankee fan, what is your favorite memory of Jorge Posada?
