I like a lot of what Houston says here, but one quote stuck out.
"They've been awesome. They have bought in full go. I look out there every morning in June and it's amazing. They're in that weight room and around our players. We had Eli in our weight room one morning along with Archie Manning, Derrick Burgess, Todd Wade, Patrick Willis and Deuce McAllister -- all in the same weight room. Pat Patterson is hollering up and down the hallway, 'I caught my first pass this summer from Eli Manning.' They're pumped, too."
I can't imagine what that would be like. A source also told me that Eli drew a play up in the huddle to get the ball to Korvic Neat to see what he could do. Neat took it 40 yards for the TD.
