The former New York Giants WR reached an agreement with San Francisco late yesterday, agent Drew Rosenhaus informed the press of the 2 year deal. Mario Manningham arguably had the most important catch during Super Bowl XLVI when he caught a 38 yard pass from Eli Manning which extended a drive and helped the Giants secure a victory.
The 49ers had clear deficiencies when it came to their passing game. It was evident in the NFC Championship game that TE Vernon Davis was their best receiver. Now they have added Randy Moss, Super Mario to go along with Davis and their young receiver Michael Crabtree who has been a bit disappointing. I would venture to say that Continue reading
Fellow NY Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham joined him on stage along with Pauley Perette from the hit show NCIS, they were presenting an award for "Best Rock Performance".
Pauley Perette seemed a bit confused and was probably just nervous. She started of her introduction with "Right, how about these players". It would have been more adequate to introduce them as Super Bowl Champions as opposed to "these players". Here is the Victor Cruz salsa dancing Grammy video. Continue reading
Super Mario had misplayed an early pass by Eli and stepped out of bounds before securing the ball. Manningham definitely made up for that mishap with this amazing catch which started the comeback drive.
As you will see in the video it was not an easy catch by the New York Giants receiver. He had 2 defenders on him, it was an over the shoulder catch close to the sideline so his coordination to catch the ball and keep his feet in bounds had to be perfect, and it was! Here is the video.

So opposing NFL teams pick your poison when it comes to covering New York Giants wide receivers.
On Sunday during the NFC Wild Card Playoff game the Atlanta Falcons learned just how difficult it is to defend these young and extremely talented group of receivers. Most of the talk this week centered around Victor Cruz of course after his last two performances. Atlanta defenders made it clear they were not going to allow the salsa dancing wide out to beat them for a big play but they failed to take into account New York's Continue reading

It may turn out to be the best drop a player ever had. Mario Manningham dropped a TD in the final drive against the Dallas Cowboys in week 14 which would have given the Giants the lead. That dropped pass may have turned out to be a blessing is disguise for the Giants.
Manningham who is a talented wide receiver, has the ability to break a short pass for a huge gain at any time but unfortunately he is also known for having butterfingers. In a game where both teams played Swiss cheese defense this play turned out to be huge.
The drop by the Giants WR occurred with 1:27 left on the clock. If he would have caught that pass Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys would have had that time left to start their final drive. Instead New York was forced to run a few more plays which eventually led to a Brandon Jacobs TD run. There were 46 seconds left on the clock at this point in Continue reading
