The difficulty of the past few years will be forgotten but memories of the 2 Super Bowls will last forever.

Eli Manning, Great Giant, Class Act! Two of my greatest memories ever!
Keeps him from having a losing record...  
bradshaw44 : 9/17/2019 10:20 am : link
Almost think that was part of their reasoning.
Eli goes straight into the pantheon of Giant greats...

Up there with LT, Carson, Gifford, all of them.

It sucks that my memories of him are tainted by the last few awful years. Hopefully over time those will fade and I'll only remember those two incredible all time great post season runs he gave us.

Always a Giant.
Thank you Eli

The mind is strong, but the body is weak.

He is a stand-up guy and will teach DJ a ton.

for my top 5 sports memories of all time.
Always sad to see the great ones age off the stage,

and replacing him was probably overdue, but an all-time Giant great, in his prime stood up in the face of many beatings and delivered. 2 SB MVP's are all that need to be said. Thanks for the GREAT memories, Eli.
I appreciate everything Eli had done for this

organization. He's made my life as a Giant fan so much more enjoyable after winning 2 Super Bowls! I'll always remember him as a true professional and consummate teammate.Im going to enjoy seeing him inducted to the HoF some day.

He is my favorite athlete of all time. If Hanlon ever gets this to him just wanted to say Thank you. What a run.
The defining Giant of one of my favorite spans of football

A great, on and off the field. We knew this day was coming, and we all knew we'd miss him when it was over. Shame it had to end the way it did, but the end is almost always sad.
Love you Eli

True champion, role model, class act! 2007 and 2011 where fantastic! Manning to Tyree! Manning to Manningham! You always came up big in the big game thank you!!!!!
Definitely the greatest Giant of my lifetime as well  
beatrixkiddo : 9/17/2019 10:23 am : link
Thanks for the two epic Super Bowl runs, you and Tom were my favorite duo. Wish our front office had its shit together, but thanks for manning (no pun intended) the fort and keeping this team stable when we were truly run like shit for the better part of your career. Wish we could have seen you in one more playoff race, hope you get a shot somewhere else and get to go out in your terms.
Great franchise QB  
bc4life : 9/17/2019 10:23 am : link
second half of his career squandered by bad personnel moves around him. Wonder where he will play next year?
The Greatest Giant in my life time.

BocaGiants91 : 9/17/2019 10:24 am : link
the last few years have been rough, but I am thankful for everything you did for the team I love. I am rooting for you in life, not just football, because your are an outstanding man, a class act, not just a football player, and that means a lot to me.
V.I.G. : 9/17/2019 10:24 am : link
Redefined toughness and clutch at QB.

Please remember Eli this way...

Thank you for everything.

Will never forgive two successive front office regimes for how they mismanaged the end of his career.
Thank you for everything

one of the greatest thrills of my life was watching you beat Tom Brady live and in person in Indianapolis

Thank you

First Gilbride. Then Coughlin. Then McAdoo. Then Reese. Now Eli.

Eventually, theyíll figure out thereís something rotten in how they evaluate and utilize talent. Hopefully itíll be soon or itís just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

Inevitable, but sad. He gave us great moments and two playoff/SB runs that to me, were inarguably the best ever in the history of the NFL.

The best QB weíve ever had

Falls short of what Eli really is. Hate to see him not go out on top like he deserves but thank you Eli for the 2 superbowls. Thank you for all the memories.
A pleasure to watch this man every Sunday  
Tuckrule : 9/17/2019 10:29 am : link
A great great player and even better person. as tough mentally and physically as they come. It was an honor to root for you since you entered the building in 04. Gave me a lifetime of football memories. Thank you to the greatest giant of all time, Eli Manning.
How can I know where to begin to thank Eli Manning?  
Beezer : 9/17/2019 10:29 am : link
My only regret, and that's really not even the right way to say it ... that Dad passed away in 2005, so he didn't get to see two of the greatest wins in Giants history, both engineered in gigantic part by Eli Manning.

I don't know what the Giants will do now, but I do hope it's well done, when it's finished. I'd hate to see him traded, but honestly, with all the needs popping up around the league so quickly, it might actually be fun to watch him play for a team with a shot.

Imagine if he won another ring but with a different team?
Thank you Eli  
Lines of Scrimmage : 9/17/2019 10:29 am : link
You showed up in the biggest moments. Class all around.

John Mara, I hope we hear from you and demonstrate the same class and accountability Eli has. Time to stand up and say that the organization failed Eli post 2011 and you were responsible for it.
Thank you Eli, I named my 1st born son after you.  
penkap75 : 9/17/2019 10:30 am : link
But it is time, and I have excitement to watch NYG football again. Was planning on doing something with the family this sunday, but eff that, I want to see DJ good/bad or ugly, its exciting.

Andrew in Austin : 9/17/2019 10:31 am : link
Can't count the number of incredible memories.

He dragged those teams to the superbowls those years. Incredible toughness and grit, incredible class act in how he treated his teammates, coaches, & front office.

One of my favorite sports figures ever.
Brady couldnít bear Eli.

For giving my son and me two incredible memories and for getting hammered by awful team decisions in the last 8 years
You didnít deserve that
This is a sad day in Giants history  
Chris684 : 9/17/2019 10:33 am : link
The end of an era that saw 2 Super Bowl titles, the greatest Quarterback and the greatest representative this franchise has ever known.

Thanks for everything Eli! It's been a hell of a ride.

I love Eli and have been dreading this, but it's always ultimately inevitable.

Thank you Eli for everything you've done for the NY Football Giants. We couldn't have asked for a better person to represent the team for all these years. And the critics can never take away the 2 well-deserved Super Bowl MVPs. I wish Eli and family all the best.
All class

and all brass. A true champion, Goliath slayer and extremely tough man. Thanks for the incredible accomplishments.

Forever greatful for what he's accomplished. A class act. Thank you Eli Manning for all the memories. Thank you.
AcidTest : 9/17/2019 10:37 am : link
you Eli for all the wonderful memories. Your performance in Super Bowls 42 and 46 was legendary, including those iconic throws to Tyree and Manningham. Your performance against the 49ers in the 2011 NFC championship game was equally remarkable. Your fourth quarter comebacks and coolness under pressure were amazing. You represented the Giants just as well off the field. You were the greatest QB in the history of this franchise.
I asked my 22-year-old son if he remembers any other Giants QBs  
latichever : 9/17/2019 10:37 am : link
He sort of remembers Collins and Warner.
