Truly the end of a very special era that will never be forgotten
Thanks Eli

I will add these four Giant QBs  
yalebowl : 9/17/2019 5:55 pm : link
To the list of Tittle, Simms, and Manning


Conerly belongs with the elite three. Tarkenton and Collins had great years with other teams as well.

Hostetler gave us our second Super Bowl.
Fucking heartbreaking

The end is not what anyone wanted, but nothing could detract from his legacy as the best QB in franchise history. The two Lombardi Trophies he brought to New York secures his place in team history, and with the fan base. Couldnít have asked for a better person to represent the Giants.

Canít wait to see him inducted into the Ring of Honor, and then the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.

Thank you, Eli!
Big thank you to Eli. He deserves to be starting, still.

2011, in my opinion, was the greatest season any quarterback has ever put together. That was a 6-10 team that Eli simply willed into a championship. I remember being down 12 points against Dallas in the 4th quarter and thinking to myself, ďdamn! This team is ruining a truly historic season for this QB.Ē I really felt that Eli did everything a qb could to win that game but simply couldnít overcome the team around him.

Then he kicked it u a notch, put this team on his back, and let it rip. It was a great win and he steamrolled through to the super bowl. That season really needs to be recognized for the masterpiece that it is and it was all because of Eli.

Beautiful stats
Eli Manning is one of my Favorite Giants...  
Jint 77 : 9/17/2019 7:08 pm : link
Top 3. He always took the high road, and the Giants have not help him at all these past 7 years.

Good luck in your post Giants career, Eli.
Thanks Eli

Steve in ATL : 9/17/2019 7:19 pm : link
Two unbelievably great upset Super Bowl victories and the MVP of both games. So tough in that SF championship game. An iron man. Always classy. My all-time favorite Giants QB even though I loved Simms too.

Jones has big shoes to fill.

Eli is my favorite athlete of all time..  
Sean : 9/17/2019 7:26 pm : link
He was named starter when I was a freshman in college, Iíve watched him play for an entire generation. He represented the NY Giants with class & helped deliver 2 SB titles. Iíll miss watching him on Sundays. I true throwback athlete/QB.

Love #10.

Iíll defend Eli to the death  
djm : 9/17/2019 7:40 pm : link
The NYG franchise took on a different glow the minute Eli was drafted. Despite the hyper critical takes from far too many concerning the trade up Eli brought credibility to a franchise sorely in need. We were blessed with winning football from 05-2012 and even those last few losing years with coughlin the giants offense was productive, save 2013. I wish Eli retired after 2016 as it would been nice to remember him as the only giant who showed up in Green Bay.

We can only hope that jones is half as good as Eli was here. Or at least half as successful.

So many big plays and great moments. Thanks Eli.
I take back my comment about him retiring In 2016  
djm : 9/17/2019 7:48 pm : link
Thatís bs and unfair. Shit youíd have to drag my ass off the field if I played pro football. I just meant that the perception of Eli from some is sad to see. The guy was a winning player who played on some shitty teams, lately.

Whatever, Eli Manning can sit at the table with all the other bad ass QBs they delivered in big spots. Thatís all that counts. Heís also the last guy to deliver a title to NYC NJ metro area. Unreal.
BleedBlue : 9/17/2019 8:20 pm : link
Thank you for everything. A true class act and the greatest Giant of my life time. #10 was a constant for the Giants on Sunday for a long time.

Thank you for the memories including TWO great super bowl runs!

nothing can ever top this. Thanks Eli.

Agreed. The elation I felt in that moment when Eli hit Burress for the TD has never been matched by any spectator event I've witnessed on TV nor in person. Absolute pure joy I felt in that moment.
Eli, legend, Hall of Famer, 2x SB champ and MVP,

Walter Payton Man of the Year. The greatest QB to ever play for this franchise
I went to the first game he ever started  
Leg of Theismann : 9/17/2019 8:37 pm : link
It happened to be on my 17th birthday, Nov. 21st, 2004 (which is kind of special). Went to the game with all my friends and unfortunately watched them lose to Vick and the Falcons. But to think that here we are 15 years later and I likely just watched him start his last game for NYG... what an incredible run that included by two greatest moments as a Giant fan. Having been born in '87, I wasn't alive for XXI and I have no memory of XXV. Until Coughlin and Eli came along, being a Giant fan for me simply meant a lot of disappointment. As bad as they've been the past 5+ years, I still say it feels quite different to be a Giant fan now. Thanks, Eli!
Thanks Eli

For never getting injured.
For giving us 2 Championships
For always being a professional
For all of those enjoyable Sundays
And most of all for always being a stand up guy in a league where itís not to often found.

Once a Giant always a Giant!!
Eliís most underrated and brave performance

2011 NFC Championship in the rain and mud at SF. I have no idea how he avoided serious injury with all the hits he took

Lot of QBs have the physical tools  
bc4life : 9/17/2019 8:51 pm : link
Eli's strengths were football IQ, work ethic, professionalism, and the ability to quiet his mind and focus when it was needed most. very, very fortunate that he was a NY Giant.

Not to mention all the great things he did off the field.
Thank you Eli

And more importantly one of my favorite people of all time.
When people say the word class, I think of you first.

Thanks for the memories.
Thank you Eli. There is  
NBGblue : 9/17/2019 10:08 pm : link
really nothing more to say. I saw Simms, I saw Hostetler; they were great but nothing compares to Eli. Serve out your term with dignity, get paid, retire as the greatest NYG QB ever.
Eli was one of the best team ambassadors...  
EricJ : 9/17/2019 10:33 pm : link
rarely do you come across a guy who plays that long, with all of the interviews and NEVER says the wrong thing. Never tosses another team mate or a coach under the bus.

2007 super bowl and Im certain it will never be topped.

The run to get there was pretty special too.

Fuck the haters.
I didn't say it earlier in my post, so Thank You Eli  
Matt M. : 9/18/2019 1:18 am : link
I will go so far as to say I hope whatever he decides after this season works out for him. If he retires, he can walk away with his head held high. If he wants to continue playing, I sincerely hope he could land with a good team to make one more playoff run, provided it is not at the expense of the Giants. The last thing I want is him hanging on and stinking up the joint somewhere.
Thank you Eli

For some unforgettable years as a NY Giants fan.
LT and Eli.....are the only 2 Giants  
George from PA : 9/18/2019 3:14 am : link
Very different but are the only 2 in the same catagory.....THANK YOU.

One of the most special shared moments in my life with my son was at his 2nd Super Bowl.....the Manningham catch occurs right in front .....BB saw it clearly but knew he had to challenge it was the beginning of the end. What a special night!

16 are the only QB my kids know...words do not do it justice, what Eli means to us.

Thank You.
I am I cursed the Giants.  
George from PA : 9/18/2019 4:14 am : link
Sitting with my son and Feeling that Brady and Wes Walker was driving for a clinchinng TD in Indianopolis....I sold the Giants into 10 years of losing....if somehow, we can win this Super Bowl. Then Wes drops a critical 3rd down....momments later, you lead us to victory starting with the Manningham catch...
7 years later....realizing my curse was running its course.
Thank you, Eli

Helped us to two SB's  
Carson53 : 9/18/2019 8:20 am : link
and he was durable, might never see that part again.
In all honesty, he should retire after this season.
Just can't see him hanging around holding a clipboard as a
backup QB, just don't see it.
I appreciate what he did around here though, it was just time, actually it was time a couple of years ago...

to 2 games in 2007, green bay and minnasota, i cursed you for the interceptions you threw in 2 blowout games, declaring we wasted a pick. Thank God i was wrong. You have become the true champion that was expected , both on and of the field. Thank you for all the years you were QB for us and role model for all. You will retire as one of the greatest giants to play for us. God bless

JerryNicklebag : 9/18/2019 10:07 am : link
Sitting in my recliner watching the draft in 2004 with my brother and best friend, I was so disappointed when the Chargers took you #1 overall and then so excited when the trade happened. The first Super Bowl was probably the best year ever for me, watching you hoist the Lombardi Trophy weeks before my daughter was to be born was simply amazing. To this day she wears your jersey on Sundays and I will now frame and hang that little #10 in my game room. The helmet catch, the throw to Manningham down the sideline, 2 wins over Tom Brady! You are the man and always will be.

You will forever hold a special place in my heart bro.
Thank you Eli!!!!

PaulN : 9/18/2019 11:06 am : link
Sorry the franchise couldn't stick with the George Young/Ernie Accorsi mantra. Offensive line, pass rushers, along with the QB, and recievers after that. He was 1-00% class all the way, I could never had kept my mouth shut, I know that. I pray Jones doesn't get fucking killed this season.
Don't think I've ever been as sad  
Southern Man : 9/18/2019 11:14 am : link
over the passing of the torch from one player to the next in any sport.

For the last 7 years or so I've been hoping (and almost expecting) to see Eli turn in such a monster year that critics would just shut up and give him his due. For one reason or another, that year never happened. Now his time with the NYG is almost over. It's sad, but Eli has had a great career with wonderful accomplishments. He needs to apologize to no one.

In a way, Manning's critics and deriders made me love him that much more. You knew the over-the-line fun-poking and general critique had to bother Eli Ė but you never saw the impact on him. It didn't affect his play, his decision-making, and his relationship with the press. Pure class. He was a vulnerable hero and his very vulnerability makes this day even more bittersweet.

I really hope that Eli does get traded to a contender. I am quite aware of the reasons why this might never happen, but it would be so great to see #10 fighting for the Lombardi one last time.

Thank you Eli...the greatest QB this franchise has ever had.
People get old

I mean, you got a few trophy's .

Thanks for the memories ELI  
TMS : 9/18/2019 12:14 pm : link
you may be the best QB that the giants have ever had and will ever get. You got caught in the scramble by this new group to save their own jobs if this team continues to collapse and miss the post season. Wish DJ the best and hope he shows the resilence and class that you have.
Don't these threads happen  
.McL. : 9/18/2019 12:57 pm : link
when the player actually leaves the team?

Isn't this a little premature?
That said...  
.McL. : 9/18/2019 1:04 pm : link
I own 2 jerseys #56 and #10. In my lifetime, I was fortunate enough to see the 2 best players in team history and both of them led the Giants to 2 SB wins.

The 2007 win will always be extra special. My Dad died in 2009 from Louie Body Syndrome, a form of dementia. He still had enough awareness to watch and enjoy the 2007 SB win. By the following fall, he was no longer capable of watching a football game.

So thank you Eli for carrying the Giants to a most improbable SB win, providing my family our last possible opportunity to enjoy it with my father.
Thanks Eli.
