Mario Manningham Will Be Difference in Super Bowl XLVI As Patriots Secondary Can’t Contain All Giants Targets


There's going to be a Michigan man that wins this Super Bowl for his team, and although odds are in his favor, it may not be Tom Brady.

New York's Mario Manningham could be the difference-maker in this one, as the Giants' wide receiver has the chance to unleash fury on the Patriots' vulnerable secondary.

The Pats have their hands full with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. The two Giants wideouts likely will earn most of the attention from New England's defensive backs, meaning Eli Manning may be looking to Manningham often.

Who is going to cover Manningham? With emphasis on Cruz and Nicks, Manningham will be overlooked, and if so, he'll certainly make them pay.

Drafted shortly after the G-Men topped the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, Manningham has just eight catches for 116 yards in New York's three postseason games this winter. However, of those eight receptions, three have been for touchdowns.
