Look who’s taken over a full page ad in New York Newsday! Eli Manning is looking mighty sharp in his Citizen watch. At first, I had to do a double-take. After all, we just did an article last week on The Sexy and Incomparable James Bond Watch, and Manning was looking very Bond-like in the color ad. We heard that Daniel Craig wasn’t so keen on doing Bond again – maybe Eli would make a fine replacement after his run with the New York Giants! Check out this comparison. Don’t you think Eli would make a fine James Bond?

In the New York Giants victory last night (12/14/15) against the Miami Dolphins, Manning’s performance was critical in their 31-24 win. With this win, the Giants moved into a 3-way tie for first place in the NFC East.
But getting back to Eli’s Bond-like performance, as ESPN wrote, “New York’s Eli Manning went 27-for-31 for 337 yards and four scores. His passer rating of 151.5 was his highest since 2009, and his 87-percent completion percentage was a career high.”
