The Super Bowl MVP was arguably the best player in the league once the regular season ended. Completing 65% of his passes, Manning threw the one interception compared to nine touchdowns and was immense under pressure. People laughed when Eli said he saw himself in the same bracket as the top QBs in the league, and now they can only humbly admit they were wrong. You can’t spell elite without Eli.Hakeem Nicks:
Nicks had 148 more receiving yards than any other receiver in the postseason to go with his league-leading four touchdowns. He was an obvious choice as he got hot at the right time.Justin Tuck:
It was tough to leave out Jason Pierre-Paul who was phenomenal throughout, but it was the consistent work of Justin Tuck rushing the passer that really caught our eye from the Giants’ defensive end rotation.Linval Joseph:
What is it about Giants defensive linemen stepping up during a Super Bowl run? Joseph was inconsistent at best during the regular season, but caused all sorts of pressure rushing the passer, and made some key plays in the run game.Chase Blackburn:
The Giants’ Blackburn was far from perfect, but made some critical plays at key moments that can’t be overlooked.Steve Weatherford:
Was super in the Super Bowl and throughout the playoffs, earning the highest postseason grade we’ve ever given out for a punter.
