Worse by the minute
I've said twice over that the Eli Manning deal the Giants made in the NFL draft was not good. Here's Adrian Wojnarowski's eulogy of Kerry Collins, Giants' Quarterback. Wojnarowski's one of the best (and most underrated) writers in sports journalism and he shows the level of class, integrity and leadership Collins brought to the Big Blue, and how he won over his 65%+ black teammates after his career had plummeted into an abyss of alcoholism, teammate problems and the spectre of the racial slur Collins hurled at Muhsin Muhammed while playing for Carolina. It will take a lot for Manning to even come close to Collins' achievement.
