Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to get your Weatherford Wednesday started.

Eli reveals a secret

Of course you have wondered what the meaning of 'Omaha' was when Giants quarterback Eli Manning used to yell that at the line of scrimmage. Now that it isn't part of the Giants' verbiage any longer, Manning revealed the secret during a Town Hall style meeting with fans on Tuesday night.

'Kudos' to the Daily News for the find.

A more serious Eli topic

Manning does not yet have a contract extension beyond 2015. In fact, he told Gary Myers of the Daily News that he and the Giants have yet to even discuss it, with Manning saying "I don't know if there will be or not."

Manning is in the final year of a six-year, $97.5 million contract.

"I guess I'm just happy that I'm still playing and still got a job to do," he said. "I guess I've always just thought, they gave me a contract for six years, this is the sixth year. I don't have any complaints. I'm going to do my job, no matter what. My focus is on playing good football, winning games, and whatever happens after that happens after that."
