Manning to Make his 100th Consecutive Start at QB.

Brett Favre isn’t the only one with a streak of note heading into Sunday’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants. Giants’ QB Eli Manning will be making his 100th consecutive start at QB for the New York Giants, joining Favre, and his older brother, Peyton Manning has the only active QB’s to accomplish this feat. The only other QB’s to accomplish this are Tom Brady, Ron Jaworski and Joe Ferguson.

“That’s good stuff,” (Manning said.) “In this league, you get hit. There have been a couple games where it’s been kind of iffy and come down to game-time decisions. It’s easy to get hurt in this game and I think part of it is a little luck and how you take care of your body on some things and trying to avoid the big hits.”

There have been times where nobody thought Eli Manning would play. Besides well, Eli. He hurt his shoulder against the Dallas Cowboys in the season opener in 2007. Most including some doctors had Manning missing a month, but played the following week against Green Bay. Last year he was dealing with a horrendous foot injury that has kept players out for weeks. He didn’t miss a single game. When you think of tough players, you likely won’t think of Eli Manning. But maybe it’s time you should.
