Seven-time New York Giants Pro Bowler Michael Strahan is staying retired. "This has been one of the toughest nights of my life," Strahan told FoxSports.com in a story released yesterday afternoon. "But after long deliberation and throwing around a million scenarios in my head for the past day, I think it's just best if I stay retired. " Giants general manager Jerry Reese has asked the 36-year-old Strahan to reconsider his retirement on Monday, just 48 hours after the Super Bowl champions lost Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora for the season to a knee injury in the preseason game against the New York Jets.

The New York Giants will head into next season with the goal of getting better, not winning another Super Bowl, quarterback Eli Manning said yesterday. "We've said we're not going to talk about repeating or doing that, just becoming a better team," he said. "We have a lot of work to do. You look at a lot of things from last year that we did not do well. From an offensive standpoint, there's a lot of things. " Manning spoke before a record crowd of about 1,000 people attending a College Football Hall of Fame luncheon in South Bend, Ind. He answered questions about New York's Super Bowl-winning season, his college career at Mississippi and growing up the younger brother of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and the son of former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning.

Tim Couch is back where he started, and he doesn't want to leave. Cleveland's beleaguered quarterback was given back his starting job - for at least 1 week. Couch now says he's willing to take a pay cut to keep it. Couch, who has been jerked in and out of the starting lineup this season, will start Sunday's game at Denver and expects to be Cleveland's No. 1 QB for the final three games. As for next season, Couch said yesterday for the first time that he would restructure his contract to remain with the Browns.

SUPER BOWL OR midseason game, Eli Manning and the New York Giants are masters of the last-minute comeback against the New England Patriots. Manning capped a decisive drive eerily similar to the one in the 2008 Super Bowl, throwing a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jake Ballard with 15 seconds left and giving the Giants a 24-20 win yesterday in Foxborough, Mass. "I knew we would win," Giants running back Brandon Jacobs said. "It definitely took me back to the Super Bowl. " In that 17-14 victory, Manning threw a 13-yard scoring pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds to go. Four plays earlier, David Tyree trapped Manning's third-down pass over the middle on top of his helmet for a 32-yard gain.

Looking back became even more difficult for the Eagles and their fans Sunday night when the New York Giants pulled off the kind of monumental upset that Philadelphia football lovers have only ever dreamed about. With their stunning 17-14 victory over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium, the Giants completed one of the most improbable runs to a Super Bowl title in NFL history. That's why the sleep-deprived Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin showed up at the Phoenix Convention Center bright and early yesterday morning looking quite refreshed.

The lawyer for a former Nevada casino worker who has accused Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her says his client will drop her civil lawsuit if he acknowledges the rape and apologizes. Attorney Cal Dunlap says in a letter to Roethlisberger's lawyers that his client would also like the quarterback to donate $100,000 to the Committee to Aid Abused Women, a Reno nonprofit organization. The woman filed the suit in July accusing the Super Bowl-winning quarterback assaulted her in 2008 in a hotel across the street from a golf course where he was playing in a celebrity tournament.

Some New York Giants are waiting to see their head coach crack a smile - or waiting to see if he can. Tom Coughlin, the former Jacksonville Jaguars coach who has taken over for Jim Fassel, does not discuss golf handicaps, favorite vacation spots, or other frivolous personal matters with his players. The field is the boardroom. And this tough-minded coach's thoughts are on football. Always. "What you've heard is exactly what you get," said Carlos Emmons, the former Eagles linebacker beginning his first season with the Giants.

A judge in Minneapolis agreed that Daunte Culpepper and a former Minnesota Vikings teammate had made a case that they were treated differently from two white men who were not charged in a boat-party sex scandal. Culpepper, who was traded to Miami this month, and running back Moe Williams are seeking dismissal of misdemeanor charges of lewd conduct. The players, both black, argued that prosecutor Steve Tallen passed up a chance to charge two white men, including the captain of one of two boats on the cruise.

The catch is already part of Super Bowl lore. It's probably one the greatest plays ever made on the NFL's biggest stage. David Tyree makes a leaping, football-sticks-to-the-helmet grab late in the fourth quarter against the undefeated Patriots. It leads to the touchdown that gives the Giants their upset win last year. What often goes unnoticed, however, is how the long, dead-on pass got to Tyree. The quarterback was surrounded by Patriots defenders, two of them tugging at his jersey before he somehow spun away, stepped to his right, and launched the pass with on-charging Patriots ready to plant him. If the quarterback had been Donovan McNabb, he would have been lauded for his elusiveness.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning took home the MVP award. Plaxico Burress had the game-winning catch. David Tyree got the biggest prize in the 2008 Super Bowl - an unforgettable moment that forever will be his. No play in the New York Giants' 17-14 victory over the New England Patriots has been shown more than Tyree's fourth-quarter catch of a ball against his helmet with defender Rodney Harrison draped over him.

The NFL off-season is all about planning and preparation, the mental dress rehearsal for the long march that, for the Eagles, begins today when rookies report to training camp. Joe Banner, the team president, the guy who is mainly responsible for directing the front office in assembling the roster the head coach wants, had a long, exhausting off-season. Two player trades, nearly two dozen contracts to negotiate and execute, some hard decisions on having to move past players, particularly Brian Dawkins, who had meant a lot to the franchise.

THE DAY AFTER the Super Bowl was Groundhog Day, appropriately enough, because it was the occasion for asking the question, and asking it again, and asking it again. Every big NFL game is like this anymore. Every game that features a late comeback ends with the same discussion. Not, "How about that Kurt Warner?" Not, "Wasn't that Ben Roethlisberger something?" No, not that. This: "Why can't Donovan do that?" Again and again and again. The answer to the question almost doesn't matter as much anymore as the fact that people cannot help but keep asking it. The whole thing is exhausting.

WHEN YOU THINK of the big plays in the Giants' Super Bowl win over the Patriots last February, you think of David Tyree's amazing ball-pressed-against-his-helmet catch and the interception that went right through Asante Samuel's hands and Eli Manning's game-winning 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress. You don't think of the Patriots' first offensive play of the game, a seemingly insignificant incompletion on a screen pass from quarterback Tom Brady to running back Laurence Maroney.
