For nine years, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin has had a front-row seat to watch his quarterback, Eli Manning, mix scintillating performances with woeful outings. But despite Manning's flaws and missteps, Coughlin would never have gotten his two Super Bowl rings without the mercurial quarterback. That's why even after New York stumbled badly in last Sunday's 34-0 battering by the Atlanta Falcons, Coughlin's confidence in Manning hasn't wavered. "Eli is our leader," Coughlin said.

ESPN's Mike Sando sure knows how we like to fill our Ravens downtime - with talk of just how elite quarterback Joe Flacco is. The ESPN writer polled a number of NFL sources and asked a total of 28 to grade each of the league's starting quarterbacks, then put those into tiers in a piece today on the Worldwide Leader. The piece is behind ESPN Insider's pay wall, but here's the spoiler you're looking for - Joe Flacco isn't in the elite tier. Sando's poll had Flacco at No. 12 in the league, in Tier 2, which included Eli Manning (New York Giants)

Right up front, let me point out that I've never been shy about expressing my giant man crush on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco played Division I-AA football at the University of Delaware, and because the Blue Hens are sort of distant rivals with my alma mater, the University of Montana, I feel like we're almost kindred spirits. I've always felt like watching the Ravens was fun, but Flacco has made it exciting again. That said, if forced to choose a quarterback for the next 10 years, the pragmatist in me would probably go with Eli Manning.

Most Ravens fans would probably tell you that they don't need to purchase the All-22 package on NFL's Game Rewind and dust off their old T-83 graphic calculator to determine that Joe Flacco was less accurate than usual in 2013. A simple eye test could tell you that. But a couple of statistics highlighted in this recent post by the guys at Pro Football Focus, who account for dropped passes when computing a quarterback's accuracy percentage, help put Flacco's season into context.

So it's the year 2018. The NFL is planning a Super Bowl in Beijing. Las Vegas has been awarded a franchise with a stadium overlooking the Strip, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has Adam Jones on double-secret suspension for giving Jerry Jones a wedgie. Oh yeah, and veteran quarterback Joe Flacco is trying to bring home Baltimore's "one for the thumb" Super Bowl title that would officially make the Ravens the Team of the Teens. All right, so some of that is pure fantasy, but perhaps not so much the part about the Ravens and their potential future with Flacco under center.

GLENDALE, Ariz.-- --They entered the game as the New York Giants. They left as giant-killers. Forget about the New England Patriots and their perfect season. Eli Manning and the upstart Giants pulled one of the greatest upsets in National Football League history with last night's 17-14 Super Bowl victory over the previously unbeaten Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium. Don Shula and the 1972 Miami Dolphins can pop that champagne that has been chilling. They remain the only undefeated team of the modern NFL era. The Patriots were strong favorites to dispatch the surprising Giants.

John Elway and Ernie Accorsi are inextricably linked in NFL history because of what happened 21 years ago - the draft pick so stubbornly fought, the trade so capriciously made, the repercussions that lasted for so many years. Elway was the Stanford quarterback who wanted no part of the Baltimore Colts in 1983. Accorsi was the Colts' general manager who took him anyway with the first overall pick in the college draft. When Colts owner Bob Irsay surreptitiously traded Elway to the Denver Broncos a week after the draft, it set in motion a series of events that would ultimately haunt two cities - Baltimore and Cleveland.

It shouldn't surprise you that most NFL players would rather have Tom Brady or Peyton Manning as their quarterback -- not Joe Flacco -- with two minutes left in the Super Bowl and a championship on the line. Flacco has steered the Ravens into the end zone during clutch drives in some big games such as the AFC divisional round win last winter, but Brady and Manning are among the NFL's all-time leaders in comeback drives. But it was a little astonishing that Flacco got no love in a recent ESPN poll asking players that question . In an anonymous player survey conducted by ESPN during the season, 128 of the 320 players polled said they wanted Brady, a three-time champion with the New England Patriots, in the final minutes of a Super Bowl.

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was named Monday morning as the winner of the 2013 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, presented annually to the top college quarterback in the nation. McCarron led the No. 4 Crimson Tide to an 11-1 record, completing 67.6 percent of his passes for 2,676 yards and 26 touchdowns.

There is a saying in NFL circles that availability is one of the most important abilities for quarterbacks. Look around the league and you will see a bunch of quarterbacks -- from strong-armed statues to mobile dual threats -- who have been knocked out of the lineup due to injuries. According to USA Today , there are already 11 teams that have changed their quarterback entering Week 8, most due to an injury. Yet seven games into his sixth season, Joe Flacco of the Ravens has yet to miss a single snap in his career due to injury.

In the days leading up to the Ravens-New York Giants game this past December, one of the stories we explored doing was a comparison of both quarterbacks - Joe Flacco and Eli Manning - through their first five seasons. Ultimately, we decided against it because, quite frankly, it appeared to be a little bit of a reach at the time. Manning was already a two-time Super Bowl MVP, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, a former No.1 overall draft pick and a member of football's first family.

Flustered, harassed and repeatedly knocked to the ground by a relentless Ravens defense, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning couldn't get his bearings Sunday. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees stuck with an aggressive approach, blitzing defenders and using unusual alignments. He occasionally utilized safeties James Ihedigbo and Omar Brown as edge pass rushers lined up outside the tackles and shifted outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw to nose guard.

Peyton Manning and Eli Manning have filmed a trailer for a fake police drama called “Football Cops” in which they disarm gun-wielding criminals with footballs. Well, I think it’s fake, but I really hope it’s not. I don’t know about you, but I would definitely watch the Manning brothers be buddy cops if DirecTV actually produced it.

Matt Vensel, Sports Blitz : A fun game down to the whistle, this one was eerily reminiscent of the last times these teams met in the Super Bowl. Eli Manning -- who said before the season the he was elite and lived up to it -- was so cool down the stretch and the Giants put enough heat on Tom Brady to seal the win. Can you believe Eli has more titles than Peyton and one fewer than Brady? Believe it. Don Markus, reporter : Peyton who? Little brothers everywhere are praying at the altar of Eli Manning.

Despite injuries that have sapped the Ravens of the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year Terrell Suggs and defensive end Pernell McPhee for several games, the defense has put a fair amount of pressure on opposing quarterbacks. The unit's 32 sacks are tied for 16th in the league. Adding to that number this Sunday when the New York Giants visit M&T Bank Stadium won't be easy. Thus far, the Giants offensive line has surrendered NFL lows in both sacks (16) and quarterback hits (42)
