    GIANTS' ELI MANNING HAS TWO SUPER BOWL RINGS, BUT NOT THE CIRCUS FOLLOWING THE NEW NY JETS QB TIM TEBOW

    GIANTS' ELI MANNING HAS TWO SUPER BOWL RINGS, BUT NOT THE CIRCUS FOLLOWING THE NEW NY JETS QB TIM TEBOW

    "In the quiet of a 26th-floor office of Goodwin Proctor LLP in midtown
    Manhattan Tuesday, two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning sat with
    the Daily News for a brief interview, before the Giants quarterback attended a
    March of Dimes reception, for which he is a celebrity
    chairman.


    SUPER BOWL XLVI CHAMPION GIANTS OPEN NFL SEASON VS. RIVAL
    COWBOYS




    There was no media mosh pit, unlike 24 hours earlier when reporters descended
    upon the Jets' Florham Park, N.J. facility like vultures to take in the hyped
    press conference for Gang Green's newly acquired backup quarterback, Tim
    Tebow
    . Tuesday, it was only Manning, a News reporter, a March of Dimes
    representative, one photographer and a security guard.




    Tebow's name inevitably came up, however.




    While the soft-spoken Manning admitted to "not reading the paper," nor
    "watching 'SportsCenter' to see where Tim's going," he did make a point —
    unprompted —to remind everyone out there which New York signal caller will
    receive the latest Super Bowl bauble.




    "I've got a little bit more down time before we start our (football) spring
    training in mid-April," said Manning. "I'll continue to enjoy this and when we
    get our rings, I'll continue to celebrate our championship season."




    Tebowmania and the Jets' over-the-top presser Monday to introduce Tebow —
    where there were more than 200 credentialed media members — are not news items
    that entered Manning's radar.




    "I had a feeling he wasn't going to the Giants," said Manning. "I kind of
    like to see who the Giants are bringing in, which players that we might lose.
    That's kind of what I thought."




    Of the Jets' addition of Tebow, Manning said simply, "It should be
    interesting how that works out." He added that he was certain the southpaw QB
    and former Heisman Trophy winner "would continue to have great success" as a
    Jet.




    "Tim's had a great career at every level," said Manning. But Manning did not
    suggest a Jets' quarterback controversy is brewing between Sanchez — the alleged
    starter — and Tebow, or that the two QBs now have even greater pressure to
    succeed.




    "Pressure is something you feel when you're unprepared," said Manning, who as
    a rookie had to sit behind veteran Kurt Warner. "I think
    there's a mind-set for any player, whether a backup quarterback, a rookie, or if
    you're signed to a new team — whether you have a specialized role, you want to
    try to do your best."




    Of course, Tebow's hyped New York arrival came only after he became
    expendable in Denver, where Eli's older brother Peyton signed to become Broncos
    executive John Elway's QB
    savior.




    The younger Manning is thrilled Peyton is playing again and added, "I think
    he picked a good spot in Denver.




    "I'm just happy he's playing football this year," said Eli, referring to
    Peyton being out all of 2011 after numerous neck surgeries. "Last year, not
    being able to watch him on Sundays, on highlights, it was different. It was
    really the first time since I've been playing football that he wasn't."




    Eli will participate in next month's charity March for Babies walk —
    something he's done the past four years and which is of even greater importance
    to him now that he's a new father to daughter Ava. Then it's back to work, back
    to gearing up for a new season, hoping to add to his trophy case.




    "I'm looking forward to getting back to work, getting with my teammates and
    to start preparing for another big year," said Manning."

    Total non-starter question. They might as well have asked him about the strength of the US dollar facing the development of a middle class in China and India and an eroded manufacturing base here at home.
