Well this should be interesting. Two brothers, 3 Superbowl rings and 3 Superbowl MVP trophies between them we call it The Manning Bowl. Last Sunday the Giants almost had as many turnovers as Peyton Manning had TD throws… And he tied an NFL record. Needless to say, if the GMen perform half as horribly as they did against the Cowboys then this will surely be a blowout. So far, Eli Manning has
pitched a big goose egg playing against his big brother. The analysts aren’t going to have him breaking that streak anytime soon. The Broncos are coming in off a huge victory against the defending Superbowl champs and with a ton of rest. The Giants were the laughingstock of the league last week and have resorted to bringing back someone who they pushed out of the organization not too long ago. This is a game they shouldn’t win, most will say can’t win, and that is exactly why they are going to win.
If the Giants don’t turn the ball over on their first play from scrimmage tomorrow, even if they don’t gain a yard, it will be a step up from last week. Big Blue is bringing back an aging Brandon Jacobs in hopes to get some veteran help for Mr. Fumblerooski, David Wilson, and Tip Drill, Da’rell Scott. Everyone hopes he can come in and truck some CB’s and Safeties, but Jacobs is getting old and hasn’t played a full game in two years. He is back to teach the youngsters how to hold on to the ball and provide a big man in the backfield to protect Eli. Hopefully the lead member of the Giants former Earth, Wind and Fire trio will be able to
line up with Hynoski to make one of the biggest backfields in the NFL, but the Giants are gonna have to be in a good amount of short yardage downs in order for that to happen. Wilson is still the future of the Giants running game, he’s not going anywhere. (Even if he makes some stupid tweets.) Prince will be suited up for the game, hopefully he doesn’t experience any residual concussion effects and can remain the threat that he is.
The Broncos will be missing Champ Bailey, so that provides the GMen with an opening to expose in Denver’s secondary. Don’t forget that Eli threw for over 450 and 4 TD’s last week. Denver’s defense is scary and their offense isn’t any easier. The only upside to today is that Montee Ball SUUUUCCCKKKED last week, fantasy owners understand, so that just puts the load on their poor QB. Oh wait, that’s Peyton Manning. Basically, the Giants will have to get their D to show up and make sure they don’t spend 40 out of the 60 minutes on the field.
I’ll be at the Manning Bowl tomorrow, so wish me and my liver some luck. Gonna be rocking the new Salsa Tee to the game because that’s all I want to see the entire time. Big Blue is coming in hot to pull off the upset of the week. LET’S GO!!!!!
