Building the perfect New York Giants’ quarterback

Let’s have a little fun Eli Manning is arguably the best quarterback in New York Giants franchise history. He isn’t, however, perfect. Let’s build the “perfect” Giants quarterback using traits from those who have played the position for the team. Size — Kerry Collins Collins, who led the Giants to a Super Bowl in 2001 and was the quarterback from 1999-2003, is a solid 6-foot-5, 248 pounds. In other words, he is a big man, bigger than the 6-5, 240-pound Ben Roethlisberger. Eli Manning is 6-4, 218 and Phil Simms was 6-3, 216. But, if you could get a guy the size of...

We take a look at why Ben Roethlisberger has too many options for the Steelers to not go for two more often this season. Our last edition of Steelers Film Room looked at how good the Pittsburgh Steelers were at converting two point conversions when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger targeted his receivers. Pittsburgh's head coach, Mike Tomlin, pushed for the league to change the rule on extra points by pushing back the spot which teams would kick from after touchdowns to make teams snap the ball from the fifteen yard line instead of the two. This gave a bigger incentive for teams to go for two...

Common sense finally sets in as Steelers ranked as the best "triplets" in the NFL

Despite what a former NFL player said on ESPN's 'NFL Live' show, common sense wins when ranking the top 'Triplets' in the NFL. If you are new to this specific topic of conversation which has circulated around Pittsburgh Steelers fans the past week, no, a member of the team didn't recently welcome triplets into this world. In regards to the 'Triplets' label, they are referring to the team who has the best quarterback, wide receiver and running back on a team. For the Steelers, it would be tough to find a team with a trio better than Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. In...

Rookie wall won't be a barrier for Bud Dupree in Year 2

Bud Dupree didn’t have to look very far to find a role model when it came to NFL fitness.
