Eli Manning brought out the Super Bowl version of himself this week, making clutch plays to lead the Giants to victory over the Cowboys in their brand spanking new 100,000 seat stadium complete with cage dancing wimmens.
Here's how the rest of our beloved alumni did this week:

Eli Manning is the old balls Rebel of the Week. He ruined Jerry Jones' Neverland Ranch opening by managing the game without Brandon Jacobs dominating the rushing attack. His wife was on camera quite a bit and looked much classier than the Jessica Simpson episode with the pink Tony Romo jersey.
First week honors went to Patrick Willis when he ripped a man's heart out on the field for calling him "P-Willie." Then he shouted, 'only my best of friends call me that.' He was seen after the game at a local Applebees.
