The NFL's All-New York Team: Offense
Every preseason there is a battle for bragging rights between the Giants and Jets. This season the Jets won the game. It is one of the most interesting games of the preseason.
Personally I love when the two teams meet because the players play in it as if it were a regular season game.
The Giants and Jets have somewhat even squads, so I decided to compile the NFL's All-New York Team.
QB: Eli Manning, NYG
Manning gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team because he is much more experienced than Mark Sanchez and has brought the Lombardi Trophy home to New York.
Don't get me wrong, Sanchez looks like he will be a future star in the NFL, but at this point in his career, Manning has to get the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team.
RB: Thomas Jones, NYJ
The RB position was the hardest pick while making this list. Jones gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team because Brandon Jacobs is frequently hurt.
Jones was chosen for his first Pro Bowl team last year because he had the best season of his career. Jacobs missed three games due to injury.
FB: Tony Richardson, NYJ
Richardson gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team because he is a four-time Pro Bowler and Madison Hedgecock has only been in one. Richardson also is a two-time All-Pro.
WR1: Jerricho Cotchery, NYJ
Cotchery gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team because he has the most experience at the WR position in New York.
Cotchery has also had a season with over 1,000 receiving yards. No other WR in New York is even close to this.
WR: Steve Smith, NYG
Smith gets the No. 2 WR spot on the NFL's All-New York Team just barely over Chansi Stuckey.
Smith is the No. 1 WR on the Giants. Smith has had an amazing season so far, having over 120 yards in the recent game against the Cowboys.
TE: Kevin Boss, NYG
Boss and Dustin Keller are very equal players. Both can block and catch passes very well, but Boss is the definitive best TE in New York because he has a ring.
LT: David Diehl, NYG
Diehl barely gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team over the former first round pick D'Brickashaw Ferguson.
Diehl was an All-Pro last year for the first time in his career. Ferguson will be a better LT in the future, but right now the spot goes to Diehl.
LG: Alan Faneca, NYJ
Faneca is an eight-time Pro Bowler. Rich Seubert has never made it to the Pro Bowl but plays a key role in the Giants offense. Faneca clearly gets the spot though because he is one of the best LGs in the game.
C: Shaun O'Hara, NYG
The choice between Nick Mangold and O'Hara was a very difficult one. O'Hara gets the spot because his Giants have had one of the best offensive lines in the league, and he has helped bring the Giants a Lombardi Trophy.
Mangold will be one of the best centers in the NFL for years to come.
RG: Chris Snee, NYG
Snee clearly gets the spot over Brandon Moore. Snee was chosen to the Pro Bowl last year and was chosen All-Pro. Moore has never been recognized for such an honor. Moore has been the Jets' starting RG for over five years.
RT: Damien Woody, NYJ
Woody and Kareem McKenzie are both very good players at their positions. Woody gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team because he is a two-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champ.
K: Jay Feely, NYJ
Feely is a former Giant. Feely gets the spot on the NFL's All-New York Team because the Giants' kicker last season is no longer a member of the team, and the Giants' 2008 Super Bowl-winning kicker Lawrence Tynes will be in his first full season coming back from an injury.
Feely went 24 for 28 on field goals last year.
