Football Eli Manning
February 5, 2012 by staff
Football Eli Manning, The city is brimming with excitement. The sporting outlets are completely sold out of New York Giants jerseys. Yes, Super Bowl fever has taken hold of New Yorkers everywhere. I imagine it is quite similar up north, as I know the pride that New Englanders have in their team.
I frequently venture up I-95 and spend time at the Red Parrot in Newport, Estoril’s in Fall River and DiMillo’s in Portland. I am no stranger to Waterfire in Providence or concerts at the Comcast Center — or Gillette Stadium, for that matter. New England is a second home for this native New Yorker. But for some reason, I get the hardest looks and nastiest comments whenever I wear my blue, leather Giants jacket up that way. The jacket has the patches from every Super Bowl that the Giants ever won sewn into it, including Super Bowl XLII.
Window-shopping in New England is an experience that every Giants fan might find interesting. In many of the shops up north you will find a certain 18-0 Patriots sticker in the windows. For Tom Brady and New England Patriots fans, Sunday will be more than just a Super Bowl game. It will be an opportunity for vengeance and glory. On the other hand, it could turn out to be more gut-wrenching than that one-Giant loss.
When the NESN.com editorial staff asked for my opinion, I was more than happy to oblige. Who am I? I am a New Yorker, a Giants fan and a writer for the BigBlueView, New York’s leading Giants blog. I like quahogs, too.
Kerr: If we’re strictly speaking about the postseason, I would have to go with Michael Boley. He has been doing it all. His reads have been top notch. Boley has been effective against the run. He has limited anything thrown in his direction and has been getting to the quarterback. This is exactly what you want out of your linebackers at this stage of the season.
Simply put, he is playing his best football right now. The defensive backs have been doing a great job — not to take away from what they have been doing — but Boley just seems to be everywhere that the action is. If it weren’t for his success as a pass rusher in the postseason, I would have had to take a closer look at this. Chase Blackburn has been doing a phenomenal job, as well.
