Is there anyone else as baffled by the enigma that is Eli Manning? Through the 06 and 07 seasons I've been waiting... and waiting—like some guy without a raincoat standing in a driving downpour waiting for a crosstown bus; and just when a bus pulls up, it turns out to be the wrong one. One minute, Eli shows flashes of competence (no, not brilliance, just competence) and effective leadership. The next minute, he's thrown the ball 10 feet off the mark and is walking to the sidelines with that freshly kicked puppy look.
Fortunately for Giants fans, the right Eli showed up against Tampa Bay last Sunday. But will he show against Dallas next week?
