Eli Manning

Recommended Posts

Is Eli Manning going to be worth the draft day shinanagans? Personally, I'd like to see Ray Lewis give him a nice hard "welcome to the NFL".

I don't think Eli will even play much this season. Kurt Warner will be taking the snaps for the G-men this season to give Eli a year to learn the game at this level.

Not sure if they even play the Ravens this season but I'm sure there are some linebackers for the Redskins/Eagles/Cowboys that would love to welcome both Warner and Manning to the NFC East.

....Best case senario: Warner finally gives up and admits he was a one year hero, retires which puts Eli in the drivers seat. Then the entire offensive line goes out for drinks and ends up getting in a big bar fight only to get suspended from the NFL for two weeks. Right around week 14 when they play the Ravens.

Honestly, who other than Eli gets to pick which team they go to in the draft? What a *****!!

Yes, I agree. What a baby. He should be thankful that he has reached a playing level where most of us can only dream about. I would not feel bad to see a career-ending injury come his way. Ok, that was a little harsh. A concussion in game 1 would be a nice welcome.

The look on his face when the Chargers drafted him was priceless. I thought he was going to throw up.

Come on you guy's. Give the kid a chance. He hasn't even been on the field yet. I will say though that I sense that if he has to go through what his poor dad went through in N.O. when he came out, I think he will fold.

I think playing in New York is punishment enough. Those sports writers and media will be brutal on him.

They also had problems with their line last year and had to throw some rookies to the fire. They lost a couple starters on the line to free agency and brought some new guys in. It may take a while for the line to gel. I would hate to be quarterback. Warner is not exactly mobil either, but I hope he succeeds. He seems like a real good guy.

Is Kurt Warner going to be taking the snaps or will it be his wife? Maybe the two of them can get Eli to do some televangelist broadcasts with them.

I hope Kurt sat down with his wife and told her not to comment on his career. Especially in New York. I imagine there are plenty of people baiting her in New York.

I don't understand why he even wanted to go to New York in the 1st place. He really doesn't have much to throw to and there running game isn't that great either. When you add the New York media to the equation then there is no way I would want to play there. At least in San Diego he would get a stud RB to take off some of the pressure.

I hope he falls and chips a tooth!!!

What a friken baby, I can't stand him and I hope anybody drives him into the ground!!

And of course like said before, the NEw Yrok media will eat him up alive when he flops.

Daddy wanted him to go there because they have a big "O" line to protect him, San Diego did not.
Since when did rookies get so many options? I think when you get drafted you should play for the leauge minimum FOR THE TEAM THAT DRAFTED YOU no matter what you did in college. Who is this rookie TE I hear about who turned down the biggest salary any TE has ever been offered? And something about he won't buy a number from the team? The leauge should take a stand sometime. Cut down on rookie salary, celebrations, unruly players (T.
O., Keyshawn), drug/drunk driving problems. I feel sorry for the Ditka's, Butkis's, Brown's, and Bradshaw's (maybe not the Bradshaw's) that saw this leauge go from a respectable leauge to a drug rehab program full of overpaid show-offs who still think they deserve better. I can't believe 2 of the top 5 running backs from last year are both going through drug related suspensions. Even though one will appeal untill it's convienent for him to not play, and the other just plain retired for a year.
Sorry about the rant, it's just if I see one more celebration for a first down, I'm going to shoot my t.v. Joe Horn: next time you score a TD and you feel the need to call someone on your cell, give me a ring. I'll tell you how stupid you look.

I dont want football to become the next WWF

I have read that Warner is looking pretty crappy for the G-Men right now, and that they are wondering if his oft-injured throwing hand is STILL bothering him. Warner will start the season if he is not hurt by then. By game 3 Warner will be hurt for sure and Eli will be thrown into the fire. For the way he and his family acted about being drafted by the Chargers, he better play well pretty quick or the NY media will eat him alive. Which would serve him right I guess. Eli - be careful what you wish for.

I hate this kid too guys. How can a rookie be such a baby and demand so much money? He's not that good and will probably fall flat on his face after all of this B.S.
Would serve him right take a few to the chin. Other players in the NFL know what went on and don't think they won't be gunning for him.

Remember though that there was a guy who pulled this same exact stunt when he was drafted and I saw him on TV quite a bit this weekend live from Canton, Ohio. What does everyone think of John Elway now???

Very True,

But it doesn't change the fact that these kids coming out of College are getting WAY TOO MUCH $$$$ for never playing a down in the NFL. I figure they should have a mandatory 1 year contract at the rookie minimum (although they have a multi-year contract with the team) Then, if they've proven they are worth it the team can work with them on a large contract. I mean come on, Winslow isn't signing because he wants more.........even though he was offered the Largest contract ever for a TE.

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.

      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.

      Need to read bottom and mark fish while on plane   Marking fish while on plane? Is this even practical? At that speed, my guess is you'd go over it so fast a fish might show up as a dot on the screen. I've never thought that would be possible. Am I wrong?

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples
