With all the talk surrounding Tony Romo’s Cabo trip with girlfriend, Jessica Simspon during the bye week, little was made of the other quarterback’s activities in the days leading up to the NFC East, playoff showdown.
New York Giants superstar* Eli Manning was seen leaving The Rusty Trombone, in downtown San Antonio, late Thursday night; a brown paper bag clutched in one hand and a large pink box in the other. When questioned by local papparazi, Manning had this to say:
“Tony’s got Jessica, Peyton’s got Kenny… even Brett has [Madden]. I really don’t have anybody. Sometimes a guy just feels like he needs to let off a little steam. I don’t see it being a big deal. In meetings, the next few days, I’ll just make sure to take it easy and sit on a cushioned chair most of the time. By game time, it should be fine, though and I should be back to 100%, no problem.”
Older brother, Colts QB and commercial whore, Peyton had no comment on Eli’s extra curricular activities, but did say that he thought his brother would be fine come Sunday. “Eli works his butt off. When he plays poorly, he really takes it hard. I’m sure Coughlin and some of the guys in the locker room have been riding him pretty hard at times this season, but he knows what he’s gotta do,” said the elder Manning. “It doesn’t really matter to me either way. It’s his ass, not mine.”
In the two meetings this season with the Cowboys, Eli has taken a beating. “Things haven’t really gone well for me against them. My butt has taken a licking up and down the field. I don’t think I’ve ever been as sore on a Monday morning as I have after those 2 games.”
Hopefully, for the youngest Manning, Monday morning won’t be so painful. But if the Giants lose, Eli will wake up sore, yet again. And in the unforgiving New York media’s eyes, he’ll probably have his Wednesday night “distraction” to thank.
*Term superstar used very, very loosely.
