    Bradshaw is practicing.
    In Reese We Trust
    Jake Ballard says he will play Sunday. Won't be 100% but thinks he is healthier than vs the Packers.

    whyyyy do we insist on using ware when bradshaw is hurting. why not use brandon. pardon the pun but i feel jacobs will wear opposing defenses down much faster and i can literally count the time ware has run for positive yards on one hand. 2 games left, i think he can handle 20 carries a game. he was used sparingly enough during the regular season.

    There appears to be a stomach bug passing among the Giants players as they prepare for the NFC Championship Game.</p>


    Eli Manning had to leave practice on Wednesday because of a little intestinal distress and center David Baas
    couldn’t practice on Friday for the same reason. He’s listed as
    probable for Sunday’s game, which makes it seem like the bug spreading
    is a bigger fear than any impact it might have on Baas’ play.</p>


    Of more concern is tight end Jake Ballard.
    Ballard is listed as questionable for Sunday with a knee injury and Tom
    Coughlin told reporters that Ballard had a procedure on the knee
    Thursday. Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the procedure wasn’t surgery.
    Ballard missed the final two games of the regular season with a knee
    sprain and he has not looked 100 percent in either of the team’s first
    two playoff games.</p>

    <div class="mod-inline image full"><cite>Matthew Emmons/US Presswire

    </cite>Eli Manning is a win away from his second Super Bowl appearance, which would tie him with you-know-who.

    </div>

    Here's to the little brother. Here's to the squirt. Here's to Beaver and Linus and Jim-Bob Walton.


    Here's to the one who never gets the top bunk, never gets shotgun, never gets the last chicken leg.</p>


    Here's to Eli Manning, the ultimate little brother. Eli the Lesser, Eli the Forgotten, Eli the Oh Your Youngest Son Plays, Too?</p>


    Oh, he plays. The little brother with the perma-cowlick is one
    game away from his second Super Bowl in four seasons as the star QB of
    the New York Giants. If he can beat the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in
    Candlestick Park, it would give him just as many Big Bowls as big
    brother Peyton, and in five less seasons. </p>


    Noogie!</p>


    Wouldn't that be a tiny, little, private smirk across the
    dinner table for Eli? For the sixth-grader who had to stand in the front
    yard catching howitzer passes from his five-years-older-brother Peyton
    while wearing a pillow, gloves and a helmet. Had to stand there while
    Peyton hollered, "Hold still, Michelin Man!" Had to catch those things.</p>




    </p><div class="inlinequote">
    <h3>



    After all those years of Eli being the Boying to Peyton's Manning, is it
    possible that Eli is actually going to end up as the greatest Manning
    of all?
    </p>
    </h3>
    </div>


    "Sometimes it just wasn't right," remembers their dad, Archie Manning,
    with a laugh. "He looked like some big fat kid out there. Cooper and
    Peyton just always messed with poor Eli. And you know Eli. He was always
    quiet, so he just kinda took it."


    He's not taking it anymore.</p>


    And what about this -- after all those years of Eli being the
    Boying to Peyton's Manning, is it possible that Eli is actually going to
    end up as the greatest Manning of all?</p>


    Settle down. It's possible. Consider:</p>


    • Eli's playoff record is better than his brother's. Eli is 6-3 to Peyton's 9-10. </p>


    • The scalps on Eli's belt are better. He got one off Tom
    Brady and the 18-0 New England Patriots of 2007 in Super Bowl 42. A week
    ago, he snagged one almost as good: Aaron Rodgers and the 15-1 Green
    Bay Packers of 2011. Peyton's signature win? He beat Rex Freaking
    Grossman.</p>


    • Eli's four playoff road wins are tied for most in NFL history. Peyton's had only two.</p>


    • Peyton has never thrown for as many yards as Eli did this season (4,933), even with more than half his games in domes.</p>


    • Eli's been more Clutch Cargo this season than Peyton ever
    has. His 15 fourth-quarter TD passes broke the NFL record held by Johnny
    Unitas (1959) and -- oh, wait! -- Peyton Manning (2002). </p>


    Is that a revenge wedgie or what?</p>




    Can you imagine, Pops?</p>





    "I'm not going there," says Archie. "But I know there's nobody happier
    for Eli than Peyton. He's the biggest Eli fan in the world."</p>


    You might have a fight over that in the Giants' locker room
    now that Eli has led the Giants to five wins in their last six games.</p>





    "I think we've got the best QB in the NFL," says Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks. "Don't matter what his name is."</p>


    "This is probably the best he's ever played," says Archie,
    "because we [the Giants] haven't been able to run the ball like we did
    in past years. Plus, we had three changes in the offensive line [one
    move, two new players], and all the injuries."</p>


    Even former tormentor Cooper Manning, seven years older, has said he's never seen Eli play with such confidence.</p>





    "He's been so good in the last two minutes," Archie says, and he's
    right. Eli's five comeback wins this season were the most in the NFL,
    tied with the 49ers' Alex Smith and whoever it was quarterbacking the
    Denver Broncos. </p>


    You think if Eli makes it to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis,
    he'll call up Indy resident Peyton and ask, "Hey, Bud! You OK? You need
    tickets to the game?"</p>


    If Eli does end up with more rings than Peyton, it might be because he deserves it. The man watches more film than Roger Ebert.</p>





    "I don't know if I've ever come to work here and his car wasn't already
    in the lot," says tackle David Diehl. "He just outworks everybody. I was
    here when he walked in as a rookie, and to see his development in the
    eight years since then, it's amazing."</p>


    Diehl is so fond of Eli that when Eli takes off running, Diehl
    gets up and chases after him, even if the play is going to be dead by
    the time he gets there. "I'm Marty McSorley and he's Wayne Gretzky.
    Nothing better happen to him."</p>



    </p><div class="mod-inline image image-right"><div style="margin-left:10px; width:300px;">[+] Enlarge<div style="width: 300px;"><cite>AP Photo/Michael Conroy</cite>Eli is having an NFL career that is second to no Manning. </div></div></div>
    What's weird is, Eli doesn't even get the most press among New York QBs.
    The guy across town -- the Jets' Mark Sanchez -- still gets most of the
    back page headlines. Now there's wild talk that if Peyton can get his
    tortured neck healthy, he could wind up replacing Sanchez next season.
    Lord, that's all Eli needs.


    Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!</p>

    Anyway, as a little brother myself, the one that always had to get up and change the channel (pre-remote America), I say: Make him get up and chase you, kid.</p>

    So
    here's to Eli the Other, Eli the Overlooked, Eli The One Peyton Would
    Forget To Drop Off At Middle School Until He Was Locking Up His Car In
    The High School Parking Lot And Saw Him Sitting Sheepishly In The Back
    Seat.</p>

    "He wouldn't speak up!" Peyton protests.</p>

    He just did.</p>

    Lando that article was ****ing awesome!!!

    This year was so incredible for Eli. It's somewhat unfortunate that it was overshadowed by the other QBs who miraculously happened to throw record breaking yardage.
