How On Earth Does Eli Manning Have Better MVP Odds Than Tony Romo?

Eli Manning currently has 25-1 odds to win the NFL MVP award for 2016, Romo only has 40-1 odds. How did that happen? As a passer, Eli Manning had the best season of his 12-year career last year when he posted 93.6 passer rating, a solid 10 points above his 83.5 career average. For Manning, coming in slightly above the 2015 NFL average of 88.4 is already quite an achievement, considering that he's ranked just 28th in career passer rating among all active QBs with at least 500 pass attempts. With his career 88.4 rating, he's sandwiched between such QB giants as Mike Glennon (83.7) and Brian...

With an average...

Saturday Slop: Top Redskins stories of the day

A look at the top Redskins news of the day. NFC East: Q&A- Would your team trade your QB straight up for Eli Manning? | ESPN Redskins Blog A year from now this question could be tougher to answer if you're the Redskins. Right now the answer is: Do you want the guy with two Super Bowls on his resume who is still playing well? Or do you want the guy you like, but you're not quite ready to pay him elite money since he has just one good season behind him? I even asked a few people in the league. One said he'd go with Kirk Cousins but the other two said they'd go with Manning. I...

Eli Manning says Giants will "definitely" make the NFL playoffs

Hmm. It turns out that Tony Romo might not be the only delusional quarterback in the NFC East. A year after the Dallas quarterback guaranteed the Cowboys were going to win the Super Bowl, Giants passer Eli Manning has a post-season proclamation of his own. To be fair, Manning's guarantee isn't as foolishly bold as Romo's was. But when recently asked if he sees the Giants as a playoff team in 2016, here's what Manning said (via New York Post). "Yeah, definitely. We added some great players in the offseason. We were aggressive in free agency, but still have a lot of our core guys, especially...
