Thank You Eli, by Michael Rolland

Derrick Ward and his 215 rushing yards, Brandon Jacobs turning in a nice day at the office with 3 bone grinding touchdowns, and an offensive line that looked like it could block a freight train was all justified because of #10. Eli Manning came up big once again when the Giants backs were against the wall. The turning point of this game was not the John Kasey 50 yard field goal that sailed wide left at the end of regulation. As dominant as the Jeff Feagles punt inside the Carolina 2 yard line was, Eli's will to win was even more impressive. On a frigid night at the Meadowlands, Eli showed NFL nation yet again, why he is one of the best in the business at his position. Down 21-10 late in the first half, Eli orchestrated a drive to set up a John Carney field goal. The momentum began to shift as that field goal went through the uprights. Then again, when the Giants were down 28-20, Big Blue turned to Eli to dig them out of another hole. When Manning found Hixon on that slant for the 2 point conversion to tie the game at 28 it was exciting, but expected. Eli Manning has been everything and more for the Giants this year. Ward, and Jacobs will get most of the recognition from last night's victory, and deservingly so. However, if the Giants are going to repeat as champs, it starts and ends with Easy Eli.
