The one unit where the entire analysis centers on just one guy is quarterback.

By his standards, Eli Manning would tell you that he has had a sub-par season. Right from his very first pass of the year that was intercepted by DeMarcus Ware, it?s been a very rough first half for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.

He?s currently leading the NFL with 15 interceptions ? not exactly the stat you want to lead. But granted, some of those were the result of receivers running bad routes, and some were literally just bad luck.

Mike Garafolo writes for FoxSports that while JaMarcus Russell has had some extremely light interest from NFL teams since he's tried to make a comeback earlier this year, he explains why Russell hasn't had much interest around the league, despite teams like the Bills and the Jets needing some quarterback help.

... [Russell's] comeback has hit a few bumps, multiple sources told FOX Sports.

Russell hit his target weight after months of training and eating right, but he has had trouble keeping it down since dropping a total of 51 pounds. Russell has always been a big body and often eclipsed 300 pounds, so this will be a constant battle for him.

Earlier this offseason, I wrote a post asking: ?Who Will Be the Next Giants? QB??

It really was meant to be an open discussion to see what the fans thought about the subject and really just to start thinking about it long-term. Of course, we are blessed to have a quarterback like Eli Manning, and based on his durability, there should be no reason that anyone other than Eli will be Big Blue?s starter behind center for at least the next five?plus years.

In the post, I wrote:

We will be doing positional breakdowns of each of the Giants? units this week, with my responsibility focusing on offense.

I?ll start with the easy one: quarterback.

Eli Manning maybe had a sub-par year according to his standards, but he still played well enough to earn a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster, albeit as a replacement.

We?ve been spoiled, Giants? fans.

Every weekend since Nov. 21, 2004, Eli Manning has suited up as the Giants? quarterback.

That?s a nine-year stretch and 135 consecutive regular season games, with an additional 11 playoff games. That streak is the longest among active quarterbacks and fourth longest overall behind Ronde Barber (215), London Fletcher (195) and Brandon Moore (137).

We're going to start welcoming some new writers into the fold here at TJB in the coming days. ?We're happy to present Daniel Kamali, who will be writing for us in the days and weeks ahead.

Just a scant few weeks go after long and weary week filled with Peyton to Jets rumors, Mike Tannenbaum held a conference call to announce the extension of Mark Sanchez. The Jets signed him to a three year extension worth a guaranteed $20.5 mill. It gave an apology to Mark Sanchez for going after Peyton and also provides cap relief for the 2012 season. ?But most importantly, for the first time ever the Jets are ready to be patient with something into which they invested so much.

One of the most intriguing collegiate players entering the NFL July supplemental draft is Terrell Pryor. There are more articles and opinions circulating the Internet as to where he may land, than one could hope to read in on rainy Saturday. Of the articles I've managed to get through, a recurring theme present in?analyst's opinion of Pryor, is that?he fits the?Kordell Stewart mold. He possesses the physical attributes to help a team in many different ways. The best comparison I can make to a current Jets player, is Brad Smith, who happens to be a free agent.

They compare similarly in their game, both?were mobile quarterbacks in college,?but Pryor has the physical edge. Brad Smith checks in at six feet two inches and 212 pounds. Pryor comes in at six foot six inches and 233 pounds. In looking at their production at the collegiate level, they're are some differences. Pryor's passing numbers?are impressive with a 144.6% QB rating, compared to Smiths 114.1%, many could say he played with a better supporting cast. The flip side of that argument is that Pryor played in the tougher conference, against staunch defenders. In 33 games at Ohio Pryor amassed 57 passing touchdowns and 26 interception with 2,164 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. Smith by comparison left Missouri with 56 passing TDs, 33 interceptions;? 4,289 yards rushing and 45 rushing touchdowns. In looking at numbers alone you can see that Smith was a far greater threat on the ground than Pryor, but the former Ohio signal caller can more than hold his own.
