The Manningface

 In light of the recent discussion regarding The Eli Manning Love-fest that occurs in the NY Metro area, I decided my first fan post should be a recycled "Photo Essay" I sent my boss (who happens to be a Giants fan), documenting the "Manning Face".  See the actual content I sent my boss after the Jump.

Please note that I respect his ability as a NFL caliber quarterback, regardless of where he may fall on anyone's "Top 15" list, and he is undoubtedly a better footballer than I am a writer or comedian.

 

Below you can find a short photo essay on the obligatory befuddled facial expression during every Giants meltdown, also known as the "Manning Face".  Please note that all but the last 2 manning faces are clearly the result of the Philadelphia Eagles.  Please feel free to respond with your own individual captions for each photograph.

Here Eli shows that lobotomies are no laughing matter, as we can clearly see the sad and desparate facial expression that is the result of losing the front portion of both lobes, most likely due to injuries sustained while diving floundering face first during a late 4th quarter scramble stumble.

Here, one wonders if he is watching his defense put up a lackluster effort on the Jumbotron, or trying to remember what he had for dinner last Thursday.

Here Eli's biceps struggle to fill his jersey as much as his team struggled in this game.  If arms are "guns", he's rockin' Super Soaker 15's.  Manningface.

Here, Eli shows his receivers that you don't need great hands if you have great elbows.  However, he is unsure if it will even help, because he knows that accurate passes are the best way to cut down on INTs, not alternative catching methods.

Realizing he actually has been lobotomized, Eli begins to wonder where the front half of his brain is.

I hope you found this photo essay informtive and insightful.  While Eli Manning has a very deserved Super Bowl MVP trophy on his mantle in Hoboken, one can not deny the hilarity of the Manning face.  The Manning Face leaves us all pondering "what is going on underneath that shaggy ungroomed mop top? Oh no, am I making a Manning Face while contemplating the Manning Face?"
