    MARIO MANNINGHAM THANKS BILL BELICHICK FOR GIVING HIM ROOM TO MAKE BIG CATCH IN SUPER BOWL XLVI

    MARIO MANNINGHAM THANKS BILL BELICHICK FOR GIVING HIM ROOM TO MAKE BIG CATCH IN SUPER BOWL XLVI

    Excerpt: "Mario Manningham had already gotten a sneak peek at the Super Bowl XLVI
    Champions DVD he and four of his teammates helped premiere this evening.


    In particular, the Giants’ wide
    receiver noted the part where Patriots coach Bill
    Belichick tells his defense to continue focusing on Victor Cruz and Hakeem
    Nicks
    and force Eli Manning to go elsewhere during the late stages of the
    Super Bowl.




    Right before Manningham's 38-yard catch up the sideline to spark the
    game-winning drive, in fact.




    “Um, thank you. That’s all,” Manningham said when asked his reaction before
    heading into a theater at Regal Cinemas in Times Square to view the film again.
    “Thank you. I appreciate it. I was just trying to go out there and make a play.
    I don’t really have too much to say.”




    He added, “I know what I can do, I know what I’m capable of doing. I’m glad
    he did that. Thank you. But I know what type of player I am."




    Manningham surely saw it as a sign of disrespect Belichick would rather see
    the ball go his way. But frankly, it was a matter of picking one’s poison when
    defending the Giants’ trio of receivers this past season. Even Manningham
    realizes that.




    “This year it seemed like everybody needed three or four good wide receivers
    on their team,” he said. “I feel like any of us can make a play at any time. You
    need a lot of good receivers these days.”




    Which leads us right back to where we’ve been for a few weeks now in
    discussing all things Manningham: If it’s so great to have all three on the
    field at once, why would he head elsewhere?




    Well, because the Giants probably won’t be able to match the kind of offer
    Manningham will get from another team. Not with their being over the salary cap
    right now and needing to worry about paying Nicks and Cruz in the near future.
    So these things tend to be great while they last but don’t last very long.




    Manningham said there’s been no progress in talks between his agent Drew
    Rosenhaus and the Giants, and he still expects to hit the free-agent market.
    Once he does, odds are he won’t be coming back.




    Even if he wants to.




    “I don’t wanna go nowhere but if it’s somewhere else, that’s’ where my path
    continues,” he said, adding this when asked why he wants to stay: “Because I
    feel like we can do a lot of damage in these next four to five years, that’s
    just how I feel. We’re all young, so … I don’t know. It’s not up to me. I want
    to stay.” Read more...

    Thanks Roanoke. I wish someone would do an analysis on the journey of players represented by Rosenhaus with comments from players regarding any regrets.
