The Brothers Manning, A Real Possibility in New York?

January 28, 2012

NEW YORK – I know you are all thinking the same thing I am. If the Colts are preparing the world for the departure of Peyton Manning, would brother Eli Manning lobby the Giants to sign him right before Super Bowl XLVI? That would give both brothers, two rings against New England, in Peyton’s house in Indianapolis, (what a goodbye to Indy fans, winning the Super Bowl as a Giant at Lucas Oil) are you kidding me? Could the Manning brothers coexist in one franchise? Would this partnership make the Giants stronger offensively? I have all of the faith in the world in Eli Manning, there is no question there. I guess the only people who really know are Peyton and Eli. If you’re Peyton, do you sign for $1.00 or how would that work? Is having the elder Manning on the team strictly for his mind worth it for New York? It’s a head scratcher but worth looking at. And just for fun, could you imagine Peyton Manning as the Giants OC, Eli Manning as the QB and father Archie Manning as the QB coach? Has it ever been done?

At the very least, signing Peyton Manning to the team for next season would be like getting an elite offensive coordinator. If he can come back healthy, you have the greatest backup QB in NFL history. If he is unable to return, give him a shot as offensive coordinator or QB coach. The main question remains, how would the brothers work together? Have they outgrown the competitive games between each other enough to embrace the benefits of such an arrangement or would they regress to petty arguing? This has got to be the most intriguing question of the day, ponder the possibilities in this scenario. I’m sure Giants GM Jerry Reese will read this and at the very least consider it. In fact, he probably thought of this long before I did and has the numbers crunched and an offer drawn up, just in case. Would Peyton motivate Eli or hurt him? Personally, I think these guys can do whatever they want and make it happen. I know that offensive communication during games between Eli and Peyton would be effortless and immediately understood since they have been doing it since childhood together. I think they would eventually click and cause chaos for opposing defenses.

In sounds insane to read these words or contemplate them out loud with friends but the Colts could make it very real. The way the media is covering this story, it looks like the Colts are opting for the controlled crash rather then the abrupt departure. Which makes sense when dealing with one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. If Peyton himself knows he is done physically with the NFL, I would imagine at least a 3 year stint as an offensive coordinator not long after that, I expect him to be successful. How would Eli Manning feel about brother Peyton coming to his team?

Would you like to see the Manning brothers working together on the Giants?

Giants QB Eli Manning Will Be a Dad Soon

October 30, 2010

NEW YORK – It seems just like yesterday that QB Eli Manning was involved in the draft day drama that ultimately brought him to Big Blue. Since then, all that Eli Manning has done is win a Super Bowl ring, be named Super Bowl MVP, go to the Pro Bowl and win a lot of football games. Not a bad career at all and all of this before his 30th birthday (Eli is 29).

Now it seems like the perfect time for him to start a family of his own with his wife Abby. The local reporters broke the news yesterday about Eli and his wife, expecting their first child. I would like to say Congratulations on behalf of everybody here at the nygreporter and we wish you a happy and healthy child, be it a boy or a girl (boy, boy, boy). Easy Eli comes from a very good family and he has a tremendous support system. I’m sure he is going to make a terrific father and will raise the child the same way he was raised, which is to say properly.

Now for the inevitable debate on the baby’s name. Will they name the child Archie, after his father if it’s a boy? Will Eli and Abby decide to share in the “naming rights” or will they decide that Eli names the kid if it’s a boy and Abby names it if it’s a girl? Only time will tell but the most important thing is to pray for a happy and healthy baby and everything else will work itself out. I won’t drag out this story because I really just wanted to recognize a happy occasion for the Giants team captain. God Bless and Congratulations again!

What opinions can you give Eli and Abby on helping them name the baby?

Manning Bowl II Game Day Chatter, The Long Wait

September 19, 2010

NEW YORK – Good morning Giants fans! I suggest you enjoy your breakfast, go for a jog or maybe get some shopping out of the way. Why do I suggest staying busy? Because it is going to be a very long day waiting for the 8:20 PM EST kickoff. I am writing this article to give you a few minutes of entertainment about Big Blue, as you watch the clock slowly grind the minutes away until kickoff.

This is going to be a good game. I give this game a ninety percent chance of living up to the hype. If you read our previous article, then you know I am taking brother Eli to win this game. I see the Giants winning by three points and I would not be surprised at all if this turned into an instant classic. These two love each other but when Peyton and Eli get on the field, trust me, they want to beat each other. Fans continue to read about how their parents are going to have a hard time watching this game. I’m sure they will be on hand to console whichever brother losses and one thing for certain is that there will be a winner and a loser, no ties here my friends.

Their father Archie (aka the luckiest father in the world) Manning should get one of those split jerseys with half Giants and half Colts sewn together (they might have already thought of this) to show support for both of the brothers.

Some of the recent news about the Giants include the fact that they have some players ruled out for today’s game. Those players include TE Kevin Boss, LB Chase Blackburn, OL William Beatty and LB Phillip Dillard. There are also some players who are questionable, they include WR Hakeem Nicks and DE Osi Umenyiora. CB Aaron Ross will play today and could this be the game where we see WR Victor Cruz gets his first game time logged? The G-Men also signed OL Dennis Landolt to the practice squad after releasing LB Bryan Kehl (a move I do not agree with). They also activated TE Bear Pascoe from the practice squad, due to TE Kevin Boss’ injury.

There are a few players that I expect will have a very good game, this is for all of you fantasy football players out there. Those players include DE Mathias Kiwanuka (Kiwi is going to explode today, 2 sacks minimum), WR Steve Smith, RB Ahmad Bradshaw, QB Eli Manning. I expect WR Mario Manningham to have an above average game and I believe RB Brandon Jacobs will get a goal line TD today as well. There is a reason why this game is being aired on prime time. Enjoy the game! Go Giants!

FINAL SCORE PREDICTION (AGAIN)

New York Giants – 41

Indianapolis Colts – 38

2010 New York Giants: NYG Notes 07-10-10

July 10, 2010

Hello Giants Fans, I thought we could take a look back on a busy week and make some notes. We are now only 3 weeks away from the beginning of training camp in Albany and still questions remain. Big questions. Like the annoying fly buzzing around a room, the middle linebacker position continues to evoke concern in Giants fans. The team has talked about LB’s Goff and Blackburn taking over for AP and have also mentioned rookie LB Phillip Dillard. Speaking of Antonio Pierce (AP), our former defensive general has officially retired from the NFL to work a gig at ESPN. Good Luck from the NYG Reporter AP!

We are now on the cusp of beginning training camp and the football news world is dead. This cruel summer dead zone happens every year. The floodgates will open for writers in three weeks, when the 2010 training camp starts. Until then, we will have the Pierre-Paul and Joseph contracts to discuss. We may have some roster moves to work with too. I expect the team to bring in another WR or CB before camp begins.

Another question people aren’t really discussing is, how will all of those 2009 injured players come back from their ailments? The G-men had a ton of players who were banged up and almost a dozen who landed on season ending IR. Two players that I’m very interested in seeing are DT Jay Alford and RB Andre Brown. Hopefully, they have both completely healed from their injuries and can contribute in 2010.

Let’s take a look at some of the recent summer news about the New York Giants.

– The 2010 New York Giants training camp begins in 3 weeks.

– Antonio Pierce officially retires from the NFL to join the ESPN TV crew.

– Rookie safety Chad Jones continues to recover from his season ending car accident. Get well soon Chad.

– Giants LT David Diehl rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday 7-9-10.

– The New York Giants have signed five of seven 2010 draft picks so far.

-The Giants still haven’t signed their first round pick DE Jason Pierre-Paul.

-The Giants second round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft Linval Joseph remains unsigned as well.

– The Giants Special Teams have lost two players for the season already.

– The Manning family held their annual passing camp in Louisiana.

– Giants WR Steve Smith has asked for a new contract. He is scheduled to make $550,000 in 2010.

– The 18 game expansion for regular season games is still a hot topic in New York.

– Questions still remain about safety Kenny Phillips’ status and condition. Get well soon Kenny.

– Giants WR Hakeem Nicks has been putting in some extra work during the offseason.

– New defensive coordinator Perry Fewell continues to win the respect of his players and earn praise from the front office.

When do you think rookie DE Jason Pierre-Paul will sign his contract? Do you think he could be a possible hold out?
