Eli Manning First Half League M.V.P.

This is an article I found online at by Adam Schein from Loud Mouths on SNY (he’s also a contributor to on a weekly basis)

here are the rest of his midseason words

And I do not want to hear about the interceptions. Watch the games. Eli’s stat sheet says 11 on the season. I would say, on a very conservative guess, five or six of those passes went off the hands of the intended receiver. The number of picks should be cut in half. Manning is completing 65.7 percent of his passes, which would represent the best mark of his career.

Eli has been consistently great, ultra reliable. He has thrown at least two touchdowns passes in a game six times this season, including each of the last four as the Giants distance themselves from the pack. This is a tremendous stat proving that word again — value.

The Giants have talented and diverse receivers, but Eli has maximized the group, spending the offseason working with Hakeem Nicks, Steve Smith and Mario Manningham. Eli has made Nicks elite and a sure-fire Pro Bowler.

Peyton is a candidate with the plethora of injuries on the Colts. Philip Rivers had done wonders on offense for the Chargers, but they are 3-5. Tom Brady is Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers has dealt with injuries and has more yards passing than Manning, but Eli has been more consistent.

It’s early, but it is Eli’s award to lose halfway home in 2010.

    As much as I would love to see Eli win the MVP, there is no way he wins it with all the Eli haters that are out there! Even though half the INTs were off the hands of the receivers, they still will say he didn’t hit them in the numbers and there are his fault…. It’s just the way it is!

      For example: I just read the sporting news’ midseason polls. Eli is listed under overrated (as voted by players), in fact he was 6th after Romo, Favre, TO, Ocho, and Jay Cutler. Seriously?? These players voting here are probably from the Packers team that got beaten in 20 below temperatures on the way to the Giants Super Bowl run. Also there’s about 20 names that got at least 2 votes for midseason MVP, none of which is named Eli Manning, however on the list is KYLE ORTON and PHILIP RIVERS!!!!! Are you kidding me??? Who the hell voted Philip Rivers or Kyle Orton (which voting took place before last week so their teams had TWO WINS at the time) for midseason MVP??? These players should be taken off of any list that EVER gets polled for ANY reason, they should also not be able to vote for public office, or make any decisions that can affect anyone’s well being.
