MICHAEL EISEN: Tough call, but I’ll go with Manning throwing 35 touchdown passes. That would be a significant achievement, considering it would be a career high and one shy of the franchise record (Y.A. Tittle threw 36 in 1963). But Brown will score his share of touchdowns, because he’ll likely get the ball frequently when the Giants are near the goal line. I just don’t know if he’ll get it enough to score double-digit touchdowns.
JOHN SCHMEELK: Andre Brown is more likely to score ten touchdowns since he will be the Giants primary short yardage back for an offense that should be fairly balanced and score a ton of points. Unless he goes down for an extended period of time, he should score double digit touchdowns. If the question was 30 TD’s instead of 35 TD’s, I would have went with Eli, who should have another Pro Bowl season.
DAN SALOMONE: When we talk about all the weapons the Giants currently have and how will the ball be divvied up between them, that doesn’t apply to Eli Manning. There’s only one of him. He’s getting those stats regardless of how they’re split up on the receiving end. That’s why I’m saying Manning throwing for 35 touchdowns is more likely, even though his career high is 31 in 2010. Yes, Brown did lead the team in rushing touchdowns with eight in just 10 games played before the injury, but there are too many capable players that it will make it difficult for any skill position to break into double digits.
