Tom Coughlin, head coach of the Super Bowl winning New York Giants, spoke about the importance of having a player like quarterback Eli Manning in a leadership role for the Giants.
The New York Times quoted Coughlin: “Eli stood up in the team meeting the other day and said a lot of things that were responded to not only by the young kids, but by the veterans as well…I think that the information gathering and sharing of information from someone who has been there and succeeded, that can be extremely valuable.”

I know that this has happened to you. Today it happened to me.
The clock showed “10:41”, I relaxed, settled in and took a deep breath. I had time. No need to rush.
I did a couple quick things that needed to get done, took a quick glance at the clock, “Wow, I’m really efficient today.”
Then. Then! THEN! I thought to myself, that was too efficient. I checked another clock, “11:16”!
Noooooo! The clock had stopped!
My leisurely lunch deadline, now became my dead spring lunch deadline.
Did you watch the Super Bowl?
Here’s a short summary:
Eli Manning was poised.
Tom Brady looked panicked.
Aaron Hernandez dropped two passes.
Mario Manningham caught the one that mattered most.
As you can imagine Manning and Manningham play for the Super Bowl winning New York Giants.
NFL players are generally assumed to be the best players in their sport in the world. While some would argue that the Giants and the New England Patriots were not great teams, they were successful and won when it mattered most.
