This week was a good one for the New York Giants. All you needed to read in the paper the other day was “Eli” and you knew what had happened. The Giants signed Eli Manning to a contract extension worth more than $95 million over the next 6 years. This means that we’ll continue seeing quality passing and play calling coming out the New York City’s NFC team through 2015. Though fans of other teams in the NFC East will be disappointed by this, it is great news for fans of the Giants. Eli Manning is perhaps the biggest reason why the Giants have a Super Bowl championship from 2008. He led the team to a surprise win against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship and then kept the Giants in the game against the Patriots, who were without a loss that season. This season will be a challenging one for the Giants, though. Just to start with, their first games are against Carolina, Chicago, New York Jets, and New England. None of these teams is easy, and in fact they appear to be very challenging. Towards the end of October they will be playing against the defending NFC champion Arizona Cardinals and then they will play Carolina again around Christmas. But the Giants are a team that will make a tough game fun, because they will win most of the time. They have a team full of play-makers and have so much depth this year that they are considered possible contenders and likely to continue deep into the playoffs. So you should get your NY Giants tickets and make sure to be part of this historic season.
