POLITI: ELI MANNING WILL TRY TO PROVE HE'S A PRIMETIME PLAYER IN "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" DEBUT (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/05/politi_eli_manning_will_prove.html)

"The opening scene could unfold like this: Eli Manning is standing behind a
podium at a press conference with the Lombardi Trophy, but all the questions are
about another New York quarterback. You know which one.

“Eli, don’t you think it’s just a matter of time before Tim Tebow wins a
Super Bowl?!” one reporter asks.</p>

“Well, you know, I actually DID just win a Super Bowl.” </p>

Next question. The reporter asks if he’ll “Tebow” for the cameras, and Eli
refuses. Next question. The reporter wants to know if he’s a virgin like
you-know-who. Each time, Eli gets a little more frustrated. </p>

“Isn’t Tim Tebow just dreamy?” another asks.</p>

Finally, Eli blows a gasket. “Doesn’t anybody have a question about ME?!” he
yells, and when nobody does, he looks at the camera and shrugs. “Then I guess
there’s just one thing left to say ...</p>

“Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” </p>

Could it work? Well, we went to an expert this week for advice. Alan Zweibel,
a Short Hills resident, knows a little bit about writing comedy skits for
athletes. He was one of “SNL’s” original writers, back when Bill Russell, O.J.
Simpson and another former Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants/)
quarterback were hosts. </p>

When Fran Tarkenton was the first professional athlete to host the show in
1977, Zweibel had him arm-wrestling Jackie Kennedy (played by Gilda Radner, of
course) in a skit on a Lite Beer commercial. “I can’t remember who won,” Zweibel
said, but of course, it didn’t really matter.</p>

The goal is to put athletes in situations that show another side of them. It
can be ridiculous — think Derek Jeter in a dress, for example — or closer to
home. Whatever it is, Zweibel thinks Eli will be a natural in his debut as guest
host, just like his brother was in 2007.</p>

“First of all, they’re great athletes, but they’re both very verbal and
self-effacing in a way,” Zweibel said. “They don’t take themselves too
seriously. For lack of a better phrase, they get it.” </p>

Zweibel didn’t want to speculate on what the current “SNL” writers might do
with <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/05/eli_manning_says_timing_for_ho.html">Manning,
who spent the week in rehearsals leading up to tonight’s show</a>. But if
they’re taking suggestions ... ?</p>

Monologue: NBC confirmed last week that Eli’s brother, Peyton, would not make
a cameo. But the network didn’t rule out another special appearance.</p>

So to set the scene, Eli has his shoulders slouched and is stammering through
the opening lines when a familiar face steps onto the stage. “This is
unacceptable!” Tom Coughlin yells. “These people paid good money to see you at
your best. Is this the kind of effort you’re going to give on the big stage?
You’re better than this, son!” </p>

And, after Tom’s rousing performance, a confident Eli delivers the perfect
one-liner to get things started. </p>

Scene: Eli is standing in his kitchen as his wife — played by the correctly
named Abby Elliott — gives him instructions on how to behave for their
soon-to-arrive dinner guest. </p>

“Remember, honey, your brother is still sensitive that you won a second Super
Bowl before him.” </p>

“I swear,” the Giants quarterback responds, “I won’t even mention it.” </p>

But then Peyton sits down at the dinner table — Bill Hader with the role,
perhaps? — and Eli can’t help himself. Peyton tries to put gravy on his meal and
finds something on the ladle. “Oh, did I leave my second Super Bowl championship
ring in the gravy?” Eli exclaims. “How thoughtless!”</p>

The evening goes on like that. Madonna — “Hey, wasn’t she the halftime act
when I won my second Super Bowl?” Eli asks — is playing on the stereo. A
neighbor rings the doorbell to return his commemorative DVD. The cake is even
shaped like the Lombardi Trophy. Peyton eventually storms out of the room. </p>

Scene: Maybe the best athlete “SNL” skit of all time was Peyton Manning’s
fake United Way commercial, the one where he rips the kids for dropping his
passes and teaches them how to break into cars. Well, in a spinoff, Eli is
brought to a school to give a pep talk to a group of kids — without the pep.</p>

“Look, I guess you should stay in school and all that, but it’s not like
there are a lot of jobs out there,” he tells them. “I’m rich because I’m an NFL
quarterback, but half of you look like you can’t even tie your shoes.” </p>

Scene: Players are returning from practice. Eli is waiting in the locker
room. One of his teammates — who else but the lovable Kenan Thompson? — puts on
his shoe to discover it’s filled with shaving cream. The camera zooms in on Eli,
a renowned practical joker in real life. </p>

“Gotcha!” he says.</p>

Another player discovers Eli has changed the language settings on his cell
phone to Chinese. “Gotcha!” he says. But the jokes get more and more over the
top. One teammate runs into the room yelling that his car is on fire. “Gotcha!”
Eli says. Another walks into the room with a somber face. “That was the doctor.
Turns out I have gonorrhea.” </p>

“Gotcha!” </p>

On and on it goes. Of course, like playing quarterback in the NFL, this might
be something best left to the professionals. “I’ll be interested to see what the
writers come up with,” Zweibel said.</p>

Same here. But they should really make sure Eli gets to wear a dress."
</p>DAVID DIEHL KNOWS HE'LL BE PLAYING SOMEWHERE ON THE OFFENSIVE LINE BUT HE DOESN'T KNOW WHERE (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/05/despite_additions_david_diehl.html)

"Like a bunch of Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants/) offensive
linemen right now, David Diehl doesn’t know where he’s going to be playing come
Week 1 – guard or tackle, left or right.

All Diehl knows is he will be playing, period.</p>

Despite Will Beatty returning from a detached retina to again compete at left
tackle, James Brewer coming in as a candidate at right tackle, veteran Kevin
Boothe making a case for a full-time role at guard and draft picks Brandon
Mosley and Matt McCants entering the picture as prospects.</p>

“That’s great to bring in young guys and have depth and create competition,”
Diehl said this afternoon by phone in an interview in part to promote an
appearance at ***’s Sporting Goods in Union this Sunday. “I’ve already been
told, ‘You’re getting old.’ I laugh when people tell me I’m old when I’m 31 and
have only missed four games. People are asking, ‘Are you worried about your job
security?’ This isn’t the first time they’ve drafted somebody at my position and
it definitely won’t be the last time.”</p>

Diehl was solid at left tackle last season, especially when taking into
account he played the final month of the regular season and the playoffs with a
broken hand. Beatty was out with a detached retina but will return this season
and will probably get his job back on the left side.</p>

Diehl figures to be a replacement for right tackle Kareem McKenzie, who
remains unsigned. In the meantime, he’s already reviewed all of his games from
last season, both at left guard and left tackle, to analyze and correct his

“Competition only makes me better and makes me have a stronger mindset,”
Diehl said. “Do you think I’m going to let somebody come in and take my job from
me, take away my chance to provide for my daughter? Over my dead body will I let
that happen.”</p>

Diehl understands the addition of Mosley and McCants, as well as top picks
David Wilson and Rueben Randle, will help a team looking to add depth in
position where players, such as McKenzie, Brandon Jacobs and Mario Manningham,
have been lost.</p>

“We feel like we’ve got the guys, we feel like we’ve got the foundation, the
draft picks we brought in are at positions we need players to step in and play,”
he said. “You bring in young talent with that same work ethic and that
blue-collar attitude, they’re going to work. It doesn’t matter if these guys are
rookies; they’re going to have to step up and contribute.”</p>

* * * *</p>

Diehl’s appearance at ***’s, which opened today in the Route 22 Retail
Center in Union, will be from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday. The store, which opens at 9
a.m., will also be giving away unmarked gift cards ranging from $5 to $500, to
the first 100 people in line.</p>

* * * *</p>

Diehl knew the <a href="http://www.nj.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/05/junior_seaus_brain_to_be_donat.html">late
Junior Seau</a> rather well. In fact, he recalls running into him on multiple
vacations in the Bahamas and elsewhere.</p>

“When we played (the Patriots) in Super Bowl XLII, he obviously wasn’t like
he was when he was in San Diego. He wasn’t that same player,” Diehl recalled.
“But his whole thing was his intelligence and his instincts and they were just
as sharp.</p>

“There were times, when he was in Miami and in New England, where he’d call
out plays and you’re in your stance and want to yell out, ‘Nope, no, no it
isn’t!’ But he would call them out based on formations and his knowledge, like
he was the quarterback of the defense.</p>

“I think about players like Lawrence Taylor, Ray Lewis and Junior Seau. These
are guys who changed the game and legends of the sport. So it’s just really sad
to have something like this happen.”</p>http://www.nj.com/giants/

If I were general manager Ozzie Newsome I’d be on speed dial with the New
York Giants’ Jerry Reese, making him an offer he couldn’t refuse for disgruntled
defensive end Osi Umenyiora. Umenyiora is in the last year of his contract, and
he doesn’t appear to have a future with the Giants beyond this season.

If you’re Giants General Manager Jerry Reese, would you accept a first-round
pick for Umenyiora? If you’re the Ravens’ Newsome, would you offer it?</p>

Programming note Eli Manning is hosting “Saturday Night
Live” tonight. The promos suggest that he’ll do fine, although he probably <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp2C7zKC0vk&amp;feature=related">won’t

"Can you imagine New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/) Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora (http://www.giants101.com/tag/osi-umenyiora/) with a soap box? Well, imagine no
more. The two-time All-Pro has decided to create his very own Twitter account (https://twitter.com/#%21/OsiUmenyiora),
and is slowly amassing a legion of followers.

The account, which was created on May 3rd, has already been verified by
Twitter and filled with some pretty interesting tweets from the "African

"And fyi, i dont always play defensive end. But when i do, i prefer to play
it for the NYG. Stay thirsty my friends," he tweeted early Saturday morning (https://twitter.com/#%21/OsiUmenyiora/status/198617921629585408).</p></blockquote>

Umenyiora also had an interesting exchange with teammate William Beatty, whom
he told to "Enjoy the camp *** whippings u will be receiving. (https://twitter.com/#%21/OsiUmenyiora/status/198617198862925824)" Of course,
that immediately prompted questions from fans about a holdout -or lack thereof-

Perhaps the most telling tweet of all was one of Osi's first, in which he

HEAD COACH POWER RANKINGS - TOM COUGHLIN NO. 2 (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/5/5/3000743/head-coach-power-rankings-giants-tom-coughlin-no-2)

"Amazing what a couple of Super Bowl titles can do. The National Football Post
has put together <a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/news/head-coach-power-rankings-180016616--nfl.html">NFL
Head Coach Power Rankings</a>, and NFP has Tom Coughlin of the <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants">New
York Giants</a> listed at No. 2.<div class="entry-body">

With two championships, Coughlin's job status should never again be
questioned. We know, though, that prior to now he has -- at least in some minds
-- been perennially on the hot seat. </p>

I have not fully thought through how I would rank NFL head coaches, but I can
tell you Coughlin would end up in the top five no matter how I ranked everybody

I find these NFP rankings a little weird, to be honest. Jim Schwartz of
Detroit No. 1? How does that compute? Rex Ryan two spots ahead of Andy Reid?
Marvin Lewis, with no playoff wins in nine seasons, ahead of Ryan, Reid and
Lovie Smith? </p>

I don't get it. But, really, it's just something to chat about on an
offseason Saturday. Doesn't mean much of anything, other than it is nice to see
Coughlin being acknowledged."</p></div>OVER OR UNDER? THE MAGIC NUMBER FOR DAVID WILSON IS 571 (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/5/5/2999522/over-or-under-the-magic-number-for-david-wilson-is-571)

"Over at Giants.com (http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Fact-or-Fiction-Giants-2012-Draft-Class/a36ab602-8b89-4d4c-8193-21c923f4b811)
some of the writers there are debating the potential 2012 production of <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants">New
York Giants</a> draft choices, including first-rounder David Wilson (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/152687/david-wilson),
a running back.

In reference to Wilson, the over/under number being discussed by Giants.com
is 800 yards rushing. Let's discuss Wilson's potential production for 2012, but
let's use a different number. Rather than 800, let's use the 571 yards <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/2224/brandon-jacobs">Brandon
Jacobs</a> ran for in 2011 as the over/under.</p>

What are you taking Giants fans, the over or the under?</p>
<p class="extend-divide"><a name="storyjump"></a>http://cdn1.sbnation.com/images/blog/star-divide.v5e9d7f1.jpg</p>

As I begin this, I'm not sure. Here is what I know. As we sit here today
Wilson would be listed as No. 4 on the Giants' running back depth chart. Don't
believe me? Think about who the head coach is, what is asked of running backs in
the Giants offense, the things Wilson must learn, and the fact that Tom Coughlin
does not put players on the field until they have earned his trust.</p>

Right now, <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/16768/ahmad-bradshaw">Ahmad
Bradshaw</a> is the No. 1 running back. Until his feet and ankles give out,
which can happen any time as we know, he remains No. 1.</p>

Danny Ware, love him or hate him, is No. 2. There probably isn't much
big-play potential with Ware. He has, however, been around long enough and
Coughlin and Kevin Gilbride have worked with him long enough that they trust
him. He can run a little, catch a little, pass-block and protect the

When camp opens Da'Rel Scott (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/131043/da-rel-scott)
will be No. 3, based simply on the fact that he has had a year in the Giants'
offense and will be ahead of Wilson in terms of what he knows.</p>

I admittedly root for Scott as a fellow University of Maryland grad, and I
know the speed he possesses is intriguing to the Giants, in the end he is not
taking carries away from Wilson, a first-round pick who will get his opportunity
once the Giants are comfortable with him protecting both Eli Manning (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/2235/eli-manning) and
the football. Scott's best chance will be to force the coaching staff to look to
him rather than Ware, which might not be all that easy.</p>

Anyway, back to the over/under question with Wilson. In the end, I will take
the over, but not by a lot. I believe it is going to take time for Wilson to
work his way into the lineup and into a full regular workload, especially if
Bradshaw remains reasonably healthy.</p>

Prince Amukamara </a>in really his first full season will end up playing the
nickel. Hosley at this point is the team’s fourth best corner. He’s one play
away from being on the field a lot for the Giants. If Hosley was two inches
taller he probably would’ve been a first round pick.

Hosley plays a physical brand of corner and may also help in the kick and
punt return games. Just because the Giants picked Hosley doesn’t mean they think
less of what a guy like Amukamara can do. The way teams run wide open offenses
around the NFL, you need as many good corners as you can to cover the wide
receivers and maybe even some tight ends. Little injuries come around here and
there throughout the NFL season, and having depth at every position is

Hosley did fail a drug test at the combine which might have caused his stock
to drop a little bit, and guys who end up failing drug tests will have questions
about them especially in their first year and being in New York. With all that
said, I think this was a solid, smart draft pick by Jerry Reese and may prove
great dividends right away in 2012."</p>
