    Mr. Softee.

    Everybody thinks the Giants won the Super Bowl because of Eli Manning.

    How many points did the Giants score until there were 35 seconds left in the game?

    Use both hands and count your fingers -- 10! So how good could he really have been?

    Because of that one pass??? That's not an MVP.

    Eli was so far from being the MVP. It was the defense that won the game because they made Tom Brady's life so miserable that day.

    And the Giants offensive line gave him all the time he needed.

    I could have caught that pass!

    So please, save your Eli Manning praise for somebody else, but not for me.
