The tragic events of September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten. The grief, horror and pain many felt as all we could do was watch in awe. That very event drew volunteers from across the nation lending support via fundraising, donation and emergency first responder assistance.  The September 11th attacks also changed the career path for ,then Arizona Cardinal, Pat Tillman.

Per Marie Tillman, widow of Pat Tillman, the September 11th tragedy sparked Tillman’s initial thoughts of becoming a part of the U.S. Armed Forces. Marie stated, “It was certainly a gut reaction he had after (the attacks of) September 11th, but really, the process that went into making the decision was much more thoughtful than just sort of an emotional reaction. There was a lot of research and time and thought that went into finally coming to that decision”.

Tillman eventually walked away from the NFL and $3.6 million dollars to serve his country. Unfortunately, on this date 10 years ago, while serving on Operation Mountain Storm (the team assigned to hunting down Osama bin Laden), Tillman’s life ended due to friendly fire.
Ten years later, we continue to celebrate his bravery and humanitarianism. His legacy not only lives on through the many stories shared by his friends and family, but through the Pat Tillman Foundation as well. 

Again Mr. Tillman, we salute you!

FORMER GIANTS OC KEVIN GILBRIDE HAS COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN ELI MANNING…

Lately, there has been more and more talk as to whether the New York Giants will ever see the Eli Manning that lead them to two SuperBowl wins.  It seems that his off days and bad season play are overshadowing his glory days.

Last season, the Giants QB did not put on his best performance. Manning threw 27 inceptions and his stats were nothing to brag about, but is this truly signaling the end for Eli or just a bad season.

Former Giants Offensive Coordinator, Kevin Gilbride seems to feel otherwise and believes maybe everyone is jumping the gun too soon. 

On a recent appearance with Pro Football Talk, Gilbride stated, “I think he’s going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line. They certainly made a move to do that by bringing in three interior offensive linemen and as soon as they get somebody that’s going to be productive for them as an outside receiver — Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go match up, bump and run [and] go win for them.”

We asked of the Giant’s front office concerns of Eli’s career possibly never regaining the form that won two Superbowls, Gilbride stated, “I think that’s, to be honest with you, ludicrous. I think he’s going to be fine. … He’s going to throw the ball to the right person and he’s going to throw it accurately.”

This is what many in the front office would love to believe as well as the many NY Giants fans that were left scratching their heads through the many QB decisions of made last season.  

Well let’s not give all the bad season credit to Manning.  The offense as a whole showed up to every game, but definitely did not show-out.  In fact, the Giants offense ranked in the bottom half per NFL Statistics and we are pretty sure that was not all Eli’s fault. Yet, there is still major concern with Manning’s decision making and consistency which just may have the front office making room for one of the many young, fresh quarterbacks listening for their name and a jersey photo in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The Giants are sitting at the #12 spot and need to add youth in many positions on the team.  Before the season was over many sources would hinting that maybe the Giant should snag a young QB to learn the game under Eli’s tutoring. Others felt the Giants should can the guy, grab a rookie QB. Either way, the Giants have to do something and there are some pretty accurate strong armed QB’s available in the first round of the draft and early in the second.

So, this will be another wait and see situation, but it is very clear that no one wants to see another 2013-Like season from Manning again at all.
