There are plenty of times that New York athletes (or coaches like, say, Rex Ryan) would love to avoid making the back covers of the city's tabloids. Then there are others, like Friday's back page in the New York Post, where it's really not so bad.

The Post went with a doctored (we think) photo of Giants quarterback Eli Manning. In the photo, Manning is depicted as Rambo from the Sylvester Stallone movies, but instead with the title "Rambeau II." The Giants take on the Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field in a rematch of the two teams' NFC Championship from 2008. Get it?

The Giants, of course, won that game and went on to the Super Bowl to beat the Patriots, so a win Sunday could be some nice revenge for the Pack — and the Patriots. 

Check out the back cover below.
