Quotes: DT Chris Canty on QB Eli Manning’s ranking on The NFL Network‘s 100 best football players: “(Eli) could be up a little higher. When you break Johnny Unitas’ record for fourth-quarter touchdown passes I think he deserves to be a little higher than 31 on the top 100. His play speaks for itself, two-time Super Bowl champion, two-time Super Bowl MVP, he’s got credentials out of the wazoo, his quarterback rating’s unbelievable, he plays well in big moments when it really counts, which is crucial for a quarterback, he elevates the play of everybody around him. He allows the defense to play with more confidence. We know if we get him the football late in the game we don’t have to worry about winning, he’s gonna put our team in the best position to win the football game. What he does for our football team and what he means to our team is invaluable…He’s No. 1 in my book, there’s not even any question about it. What he does for our football team, what he means for our football team, he’s my MVP. It doesn’t really matter. I’m sure Eli’s not losing any sleep about being rated No. 31. He’s thinking about how to make our football team better for the upcoming season.’’

LB Michael Boley on Manning’s ranking: “It’s just a poll, I guess. Obviously he’s a lot better than the 31st, he definitely should be top five, if not No. 1. His stats, winning two Super Bowls, that speaks for itself. Eli would have definitely got my vote for No. 1. He’s not the flashiest, but he wins games.’’
