    Eli Manning: Giants would rather have Plaxico than Tiki</p>


    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...n-tiki/related</p>


    [/quote]

    “Probably Plaxico,” Manning said when asked which one would be more welcome in the Giants’ locker room. “He has probably fonder memories, winning a Super Bowl, that catch for the touchdown in Super Bowl XLII. Tiki just ended on a bad note. <u>It’s really a shame, he should be remembered as a great Giants running back and a terrific player — because he was — but the way he went out he burned a few bridges</u>. . . . So I think Plaxico would probably be welcomed back a little quicker.” Eli feels the same as I do.
    [/quote]

    Eli is like Jeter - always PC and doesn't speak out of character
    [/quote]Jeter is a high class ambassador for the Major League Baseball. If I were Commissioner, I would want his face everywhere.
    [/quote]</p>


    fixed that for you. =D</p>[/quote]As an avid Yankee fan, you know much more about Derek the player...than I do.

    Desean Jackson 47 catches 1056 yds 6 TD's</P>


    Mario Manningham 60 catches 944 yards 9 TD's</P>


    </P>


    Just saying. This is a comparison of each teams deep threat.</P>


    [/quote]Thanks for that stat. I completely did not think that MM had that many catches last year. I remember the td's toward the end, but he never really "shocked" me until the last two games.
    [/quote]</P>


    I love Hakeem Nicks, but given his tendancy to get hurt and given the growth of Manningham, I honestly can't say if Nicks or Manningham is most valuable to the team.</P>


    I can honestly see MM going for something like 1300 yards and 10+ TD's next year. I think he's poised to be an elite WR.</P>


    [/quote]I have to say, it's not about favorites for me. <U>Well, I have some allegiances to older player's, but whoever get's it done is the one I want out there playing for us now. </U>
    [/quote]apparently thats "frowned upon in this establishment!!"
    [/quote]</P>


    Do you honestly believe that Nunez is a better option than Derek Jeter?</P>


    You are nuts!!!</P>


    I will say as a Sox fan, I hope Girardi is as foolish as you.</P>


    [/quote]where did i say that? with jeter out of the line up this team is A LOT more flexible. people that dont watch the games can deny it all they want but we are tearing it up right now and not having jeter leadoff is the main reason. yea we were starting to tear it up right before jets got hurt. but now we are reeeally clicking.
    [/quote]</P>


    Maybe when you wrote this earlier this morning......</P>


    </P>


    </P>


    . who gives a *** if hes the face of the team? give me a break. maybe he outperforms most shortstops on defense but thats it. i dont care if nunez is 5 for 50. hes been getting the hits when they matter which is more than i can say for jeter.</P>


    .........Dez, the Jeter hater.

    </P>


    [/quote]all i said was nunez was hitting when it mattered. never said he was better. and id like to know why no redsox can ever do wrong, but giant players like eli are fair game? huuuuuhhhhh?

    Never complain to outsiders about your players. Only to insiders.</P>
