No one was more pleased with the Giants than Adam Merchant. The 15-year-old fan from Barre, Vt., attended Friday’s practice and Sunday’s game, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Their 38-10 win on Sunday night repositioned the Giants statistically and mentally, giving them a two-game lead over Dallas and Washington and putting about a million miles of separation between them morale-wise.
While the term can morph from “franchise” to “upper echelon” to “elite,” only one designation really matters: Winner. Eli has that covered. And Simms, more than any of us, knows the difference.
“I can say with all honesty, as it was coming out of my mouth I went, ‘Oh boy, this will really create some controversy,’” Simms told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton.
It’s the debate that just won’t go away — and now ex-Giants quarterback Phil Simms has weighed in.

Boomer played along, used his quick wit to make light of the gaffe and then got his revenge.
Some fans call him “Easy Eli,” but it was an uphill climb for Manning to pull off another trademark fourth-quarter comeback and secured the Giants’ first win of the season.

After a glowing introduction courtesy of Craig, Simms took a couple of shots at Boomer before addressing the Jets 48-28 win over the Bills.
After all, the NFL has many rules and nuances. Some of these officials aren’t exactly used to speaking in front of 75,000 rabid football fans, never mind a national television audience.
“I think it is a big, big deal,” Simms told Boomer & Carton. “I think we underestimate how good the officials that cover the games in the NFL, how good they are.”
For NFL players with careers longer than five years, their life expectancy is less than 60. Maybe an incredible 40 beats an indifferent 80. That’s an important choice for us to make. But it is our choice, and it always will be.
Would Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning be Hall of Famers if their careers ended today? One legendary Giant certainly thinks so.
The younger folks out there may not remember the name. But for those of us who hung out in the Giants’ locker room in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, Stacy Robinson was one of the bright lights.
