You have to admire Cruz for his willingness to subject himself to the rigors of backfield work, even if it’s just for the sake of gimmickry. But there’s no way the kid should play even a snap at running back.
Ben McAdoo plans to mix and match what he learned with the Green Bay Packers with parts of Kevin Gilbride’s playbook in coming up with a new offense for the New York Giants.
As Eli Manning looked on at his brother’s struggles in Super Bowl XLVIII, he must have said, “Welcome to my world, Peyton.” Or, as Yogi Berra might have said, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”

Archie Manning joined the show this morning shortly after learning about the allegations of Eli Manning and the Giants creating fraudulent memorabilia.
