The Scouting Report on Eli Manning

The Bleeding Blue: Giants History Podcast Twitter feed has a link today to Ernie Accorsi's scouting report on Eli Manning in 2003 that led to the Giants going after him in the draft. It's an interesting and amusing read, and a pretty good description of who he turned out to be:

You would think a scouting report would be fairly dry and technical, but Accorsi throws a couple of gems in:

"REMEMBER HOW ARCHIE RAN? IN THAT DEPARTMENT, ELI DOESN’T HAVE THE BEST GENES, ALTHOUGH I NEVER TIMED MOM OLIVIA IN THE 40."

"AS [FORMER BALTIMORE COLTS DEFENSIVE BACK] BOBBY BOYD TOLD ME ONCE ABOUT UNITAS, "TWO THINGS SET HIM APART: HIS LEFT TESTICLE AND HIS RIGHT TESTICLE""
