    Interesting article on Eli from ESPN

    The "character" thing: NFL draftniks, GMs and fans all pay it a ton of lip service.

    So I wonder if Eli Manning's demand to be shipped to New York -- or, more accurately, to not play for San Diego -- will hurt his draft grade? (Why do I think it won't?) It should. What a punk!

    Teams draft the players, not the other way around. The system works because the struggling teams get the player that best fits their needs. Here's an irony: All Mike Williams wants to do is play in the NFL -- and he can't; meanwhile, Manning is acting like a prima donna before he even gets to the draft podium.

    ESPN's page 2 articles aren't meant to be taken seriously. Most of the time they are often "Devil's Advocate" or just plain off-the-wall for their rediculousness.

    You might as well read the comic section of the newspaper, you will find just as much insight into the NFL there. Although, I do find some of the articles amusing.
