Eli Manning remembers time as camper

Posted by Dan Salomone on July 15, 2013 – 4:55 pm

It wasn’t long ago Eli Manning was running around as a camper at his family’s passing academy in Louisiana. Or, actually, it was.

It just doesn’t seem that way.

Before the two-time Super Bowl MVP embarks on his 10th NFL season, the Giants’ quarterback co-hosted the annual Manning Passing Academy, held this past weekend at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La. Owned and operated by the patriarch, Archie, and the three sons, Cooper, Peyton and Eli, the camp began 18 years ago and has settled at that location for the last eight summers.

mpaBefore the Super Bowls, before being a first overall draft pick, before being an All-American, Eli was a sponge at the camps, soaking up everything he could as he rose through the ranks.

“I enjoyed coming and getting taught by different players,” he told The Times-Picayune. “We had some college and NFL players, a lot of high school and college coaches getting taught different drills by them and running around. So those were fun times, and I still love coming here because I remember what it was like to be that kid, hungry to learn more football, trying to get better at the drills and better at throwing. So I try to work with them and make sure they’re having a great time.”

Now a main attraction, Eli again carried on the Manning family tradition at the camp this year by welcoming 1,200 quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends. A variety of college and professional players and coaches served as counselors, including Alabama’s A.J. McCarron and Heisman Trophy-winner Johnny Manziel.

“It was pretty cool,” said NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, who was in Louisiana covering the academy. “They’ve got about 35-40 quarterbacks that come in as counselors. They coach the kids during the day, and then the first and the last day of camp, they put on a little show where they do a passing tree with Peyton and Eli. And I’ve got to tell you something, Peyton and Eli, they don’t just lend their name to a camp. These guys are coaching kids all day long in the heat of Louisiana. It’s awesome what the Manning family does.”

MANNING BROTHERS GEAR UP FOR NEW COMMERCIAL

From the creators of Football Cops, DIRECTV is apparently in the works again with Eli and Peyton Manning filming a new spot. We’ll wait and see if they’re reprising their roles, but in the meantime, here are some hits from the younger Manning’s filmography:

QUOTABLES

“It does. It has to be. It’s hard in the NFL. It’s a high-performance business, a lot of young guys coming in the league coming for your spot. I’m going into my sixth year – still a young guy – but playing cornerback with two ACL’s, it’s getting real thin. It’s been a tough year, but I’ve been pushing through it and I’m healthy right now.”Terrell Thomas on if his mindset is “now or never” (WATCH INTERVIEW)

Minicamp Roundup Day 1

Posted by Dan Salomone on June 12, 2013 – 9:00 am

The Giants opened up their three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday at the Timex Performance Center. Here are the latest highlights, photos, and quotes that you need to know from Day 1:

QUOTES:

WR Hakeem Nicks on the reason why he didn’t tell Coach Coughlin about not attending the OTAs: “Well, I feel where he was coming from. I could have done a better job at reaching out, but I did. We finally got to talk. We got things straightened out on that end. Coach Coughlin…that’s my guy. That relationship can’t go sour. I felt where he was coming from. I should have done a better job at reaching out to him, but I’m here now and they’re excited to see me.” READ MORE

Coach Tom Coughlin on Nicks’ return: It will make a big difference once we get him here for some extended time, which this camp is not going to allow us. But at least he’s here and he’s working.” READ MORE

QB Eli Manning on having Nicks back at practice: “I’m looking forward to having these last three practices and keep working on getting better, working on our offense, improving on things and see if we can… I thought we’ve made some progress these last few weeks of OTAs and hopefully we can finish on a strong note and take that into training camp down the road.” READ MORE

Eli’s Father’s Day gift? Boxing gloves

Posted by Dan Salomone on June 10, 2013 – 9:00 am

Father’s Day is a busy time in the Manning household. Not only does Archie have his sons, but his two Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks have their own kids to celebrate with as they prepare for a new NFL season.

Eli, in a recent commercial spot, let us in on one of the greatest gifts for his father when they do get together, and it involved boxing.

“Anytime you’ve got three boys in a household, an argument is going to break out,” Eli said. “My dad would kind of like, “All right, you two put your gloves on, you’re going to box. Before we go, you’ve got to punch this bag for three minutes straight.” So we’d be punching, and of course, your arms would be dead and you’re kind of just throwing shoulders at each other and you end up on the floor laughing. Problem solved, and you’re back to having a good day. Now when I walk by and I see boxing gloves, I think I’ve got to make sure my dad has got a couple boxing gloves to solve some of these issues with all the grandchildren.

“It’s really hard to get together, but the greatest gift I can ever give my dad for Father’s Day is just time and spending it together. And that’s what we try to do every year.”

Eli Manning voted No. 43 in ‘Top 100′

Posted by Dan Salomone on May 31, 2013 – 9:00 am

Eli Manning has been voted No. 43 in the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2013, bringing the Giants’ total to three players named thus far.

Manning was the sixth quarterback to be revealed on the list – the network releases 10 names each week – and dropped from 31st in 2012, when he was coming off his second Super Bowl MVP performance.  Manning passed for 3,948 yards, 26 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2013, becoming the 34th quarterback in history with at least 30,000 career passing yards.

“Eli, he’s become a great quarterback,” said Philadelphia defensive end Trent Cole, who has faced Manning twice a year since 2005. “I have to give him that. He gets the ball downfield, gets it to his receivers, and he’s on-target. Nobody can say otherwise because I heard a lot of people talk about, ‘Should he be here?’ He’s up there with the top five quarterbacks. You’ve got to put him there.”

Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Kerrigan agreed, having seen firsthand Manning’s magic against his Redskins this past season. In the Week 7 victory over the NFC East rival, Manning hooked up with wide receiver Victor Cruz for a 77-yard touchdown with 1:13 remaining in the game to put the Giants up 27-23.

“He just always seems to make the big throw at the big moment,” Kerrigan said. “He had the long pass to Victor Cruz that won the game against us with about 1:30 left. That was really impressive because we had a lot of momentum coming on the field as a defense. I think we rushed three or four on that play and still were able to generate some good pressure, but he got the throw off and put it right on the money. He doesn’t give up on a play, and that’s what is impressive about him.”

The Giants had five players on the Top 100 list in 2012 — WR Hakeem Nicks (90), DE Justin Tuck (62), Cruz (39), Manning (31), and Pierre-Paul (24)

Here is a look at the 2013 rankings so far:

100. TE Dennis Pitta, Ravens
99. OT Trent Williams, Redskins
98. RB Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars
97. TE Heath Miller, Steelers

Giants welcome Manchester City F.C. to facility

Posted by Dan Salomone on May 23, 2013 – 4:27 pm

Joe Hart, Eli Manning

WATCH: Giants welcome Manchester City F.C. 

The Giants welcomed the Manchester City Football Club to the Timex Performance Center on Wednesday, giving the English Premier League soccer team a taste of the gridiron.

The club was in the area for its 2013 U.S. Tour, promoting the acquisition of the New York City Football Club — Major League Soccer’s 20th team – in partnership with the New York Yankees. The players from across the pond toured the Giants’ facility and caught the end of the first OTA practice.

“I don’t know too much about American football…but just to be here in this atmosphere is unbelievable,” defender Micah Richards told Man City’s official team website. “It’s probably the best training ground I’ve ever been to. Just coming in here and meeting some of the players is just unbelievable…You just know that they come to work hard.”

After practice, the Giants met their football kin, and Eli Manning threw passes to players not accustomed to using their hands.

“It’s great to have Man City out here at our facility,” Giants V.P. of Communications Peter John-Baptiste said. “We gave them a nice tour. It was fun seeing Eli Manning toss footballs with some of the guys. Some of the guys have good hands. The most interesting part was probably the keeper, Joe Hart, catching from the JUGS machines. Our wide receivers always use those JUGS machines after practice, and to see him catching the balls, maybe he can use that to practice and kind of help him with his skills as a goalkeeper.”

Meanwhile, Richards, who helped Manchester City finish second in the league this year with his feet and not his hands, decided to pass.

“I don’t trust my hands actually, to be fair,” he said.

Giants trio makes CBS’ Top 100

Posted by Dan Salomone on May 17, 2013 – 9:00 am

Believe it or not, we’re less than three months away from the Giants’ first preseason game. And with the new season sneaking up, CBS Sports this week took a look at where everyone stacks up across the NFL, ranking the top 100 players.

Senior columnist Pete Prisco, composer of the annual list, included three Giants in the NFL Top 100 – Jason Pierre-Paul, Eli Manning, and Victor Cruz. Unlike some outlets that base their rankings on production from the previous season, Prisco looked at where they rank heading into 2013, and here’s what he had to say:

elirank21. Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, New York Giants:He didn’t have the kind of year the Giants hoped he’d have. He looked heavy and wasn’t as explosive. But he remains as talented a pass rusher as there is in the game.”

28. Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants:He didn’t have the season the Giants expected, but there were a lot of reasons why. He’s still one of the best.”

72. Victor Cruz, WR, New York Giants:He had 86 catches and 10 touchdowns, but he wasn’t as good as he was in 2011. He seemed to struggle with all the extra attention at times.”

Three quarterbacks made the top five, including Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, who came in at No. 1 for the second consecutive year. And while we’re on the subject of rankings, the crew at CBS Sports also counted down the best front offices in the NFL. The Giants came in fourth in that department behind the Ravens, Patriots, and Packers.

“I’m putting a premium on winning a Super Bowl recently, which this team has done twice,” Jason La Canfora wrote. “And they’ve done it despite a regime change with Jerry Reese expertly taking over for Ernie Accorsi, which I think gets overlooked and underappreciated. The strong hand of ownership, supporting coach Tom Coughlin through rough patches, has been vital as well.”

Three Giants make PFF’s ‘Top 101′

Posted by Dan Salomone on May 7, 2013 – 9:00 am

Every year, the people over at Pro Football Focus get together to rank the top 101 players from the previous season. Their countdown is over, and three Giants have made the list: DE Jason Pierre-Paul (No. 46), LT Will Beatty (No. 85), and QB Eli Manning (No. 90).

Here is a look at what PFF had to say about the Top 101 of 2012, and keep in mind players were graded solely on 2012 with all positions weighted equally.

jpp46. Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, New York Giants (Last year: 17th)

The danger was always there with how people viewed “JPP”. As good as his 2011 season was the emphasis placed on his sack numbers were always going to come back to bite him. And while it’s true he didn’t have quite the same impact as he did when the Giants won it all, it shouldn’t take away from a tremendously complete season he put forward. Excellent against the run, there’s no shame in the 55 QB disruptions he managed.

Best Performance: Week 14 versus New Orleans, +6.0 WATCH HIGHLIGHTS
Key Stat: His 30 defensive stops in the run game were the third-most of any 4-3 defensive end.

85. Will Beatty, LT, New York Giants (Last year: Unranked)

Injury meant Beatty didn’t start the season as the Giants’ left tackle. Whether injuries handed him his starting job back, or it was the Giants’ plan all along, the former second-round pick didn’t take much time showing everyone what he was capable of. A fine pass protector, Beatty is one of those left tackles who can actually generate some movement in the run game as well.

Best Performance: Week 3 at Carolina, +5.4 WATCH HGHLIGHTS
Key Stat: Allowed just three sacks and zero quarterback hits all season long.

90. Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants (Last year: 8th)

While Eli was unable to replicate his marvelous 2011, let’s not pretend he didn’t play extremely well for most of the season. While some performances disappointed (notably against Pittsburgh and Atlanta) Manning was able to almost carry his struggling Giants into the playoffs with his usual array of clutch throws.

Best Performance: Week 2 versus Tampa Bay, +6.3 WATCH HGHLIGHTS
Key Stat: Completion percentage under pressure dropped to 47.9% in 2012, after it was 55.6% a year earlier.

While the 49ers led all teams with 13 selections, the top player ranked was DE J.J. Watt (Texans), followed by RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings), DT Geno Atkins (Bengals), LB Von Miller (Broncos), and CB Richard Sherman (Seahawks).

Posted by Dan Salomone on April 22, 2013 – 12:00 pm

The debate doesn’t stop at the NFL Draft. That’s where it begins.

Shortly after the 254th selection of the NFL Draft is announced Saturday night, NFL Network will debut its first installment of Top 100 Players of 2013.

Tyree catch the greatest play in NFL history?

Posted by Dan Salomone on March 21, 2013 – 2:10 pm

tyreeMarch Madness isn’t about just college basketball anymore.

When you’re done checking out and voting on Giants.com’s own NYG Draft Class Challenge, head over to NFL.com’s bracketology department to determine the greatest play in NFL history.

NFL.com has picked the 64 best plays ever, and throughout the month, fans can cast their votes as they advance round by round. Five plays from Giants history made the field: David Tyree Helmet Catch (No. 1 seed); Leonard Marshall Forces Joe Montana Fumble (9); Jim Burt Knocks Out Joe Montana, LT Gets Pick Six (13); Jason Sehorn Amazing INT vs. Eagles (14); and most recently, Eli Manning 38-Yard Pass to Mario Manningham (15).

Let us know if you think one of those was the greatest play in NFL history.
