Eli Manning done for year?
 
The week 1 carnage just goes on and on - maybe it just seems worse than usual?

I thought Manning looked pretty good against the Cowboys - his 1 INT was unlucky - Plax fell over when trying to turn back to the ball.

At a time when we're hearing rumors that Giants quarterback Eli Manning could miss the entire 2007 season with a shoulder injury, media reports regarding the extent of the injury are all over the map.

Adam Schefter of NFLN says that Manning has a separated shoulder, and that he could be back by September 30.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Peyton's little brother will miss at least a month, which means he'd be back for a Monday nighter on October 15 in Atlanta.

Mort also reports that there were fears that Manning had suffered a torn labrum, but that an MRI showed that the labrum was intact.

The Giants, however, insist that Eli won't miss significant time. Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star Ledger echoes that sentiment, as does Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

So what gives? It could be that the injury is serious, but that the team is hoping to sign or trade for a replacement without the player or the team in question knowing that the situation is dire. The price tag naturally goes up if the Giants are perceived to be desperate.

Of course, such an approach wouldn't work on free-agent quarterback Byron Leftwich, since Leftwich and Manning are represented by the same agent.

the guys on "1st and 10", particularly that jackass. skip bayless, just shredded eli for pulling himself out of the game . basicly calling him a puss with no heart. if it turns out to be more than just a bruise....they got some serious crow to chow on.

Parcells said watch what the Giants do to replace Eli - if they stick with Hasselbeck or that Pillsbury Dough Boy who is their #3 QB they will think Manning is back by early October. If they try to get one of Tampa's 18 QBs or bring in Leftwich they will indicate Manning may be gone much longer. Consensus seems to be he misses a month.

What a horrible day for New York fans - both teams lose to the big division rival and both starting QBs go down.

Of course unlike what happened in Buffalo these injuries heal - helps to keep it in perspective.

Could this be Jared Lorenzen's chance to finally see the field?

ive heard absolutely nothing to suggest hes out for the year. that speculation is definitely some belichickian subterfuge.

lemme guess.... the uncited source is the rumor mill at PFT?

eli got rolled up pretty good and bayless is too much of a punk to eat some crow.

I think I heard on Espn he will be out a month, but that could be a rumor too....

No fan of Eli, but I agree.

Eli should be allowed to slam Skip on the ground shoulder-first untikil Skip suffers the same injury.
