Thank You Eli!!!!

2 historic playoff runs and Super Bowl victories over the GOAT. People will soon forget about these last few years but will always remember the Super Bowls and how you always handled things with class. You have a place on the Giants Mt Rushmore. Next stop Canton!
Do we have to do this

Now? He's still on the team.
Thanks Eli

A major part of two titles. A lot of fans go a lifetime without one title, Eli helped get us two!

Love ya Eli

A class act, even keeled, durable and clutch when it mattered on the biggest stage. While Iíve been a vocal proponent of succession planning over the past 4/5 years, today is bittersweet as itís the end of an era and a reminder of some of the highs of the 07 and 11 runs.
Greatest QB in NYG history

Good luck Daniel having to follow a legend.

Thanks for 2 Lombardi's #10

Dude, let it go. This isn't the place to debate his place in giants history.
This thread is an embarrassment  
HomerJones45 : 9/17/2019 10:44 am : link
Most of you have done nothing but bitch about Manning for 8 years and are whooping it up on the Daniel Jones thread.
Thank you Eli...  
Chris in Philly : 9/17/2019 10:44 am : link
The ultimate good teammate, a class act through the end, and a man that brought two Super Bowl rings to my favorite franchise. He's a Giants legend.
Franchise QB.  
BillKo : 9/17/2019 10:44 am : link
Great draft pick. Great representative of the entire organization. Class guy all the way.

Played the toughest position in sports in the toughest sports town. And won two championships.
On the Giants' Mt. Rushmore  
Y.A. : 9/17/2019 10:45 am : link
Now and forever.

Thanks Eli. It has been great.
Nothing I can add that hasn't been said.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 9/17/2019 10:45 am : link
Love #10.
Toughest QB in the NFL for the last 16 seasons.  
jsuds : 9/17/2019 10:48 am : link
Perfect disposition to not be eaten alive by the NY media market. Greatest SB victory ever over the undefeated GOAT. Never threw his team under the bus. Tried his best to succeed under the duress of unblocked rushers for these past several years with no complaints. Great sense of humor. All the traits you could ever want in a leader that has had as much class as any one ever and brought this franchise lots of glory. I'm gonna miss him and hope his successor can live up to the legend he is replacing. Thanks Eli Manning. Looking forward to your HOF induction.
Easily my all time favorite Giant, my all time favorite athlete  
GiantSteps : 9/17/2019 10:49 am : link
and my all time favorite celebrity.

I'll be wearing 10 for the rest of my Giants watching days.

I hope now he can finally get some respect for the amazing career he's had here. Most NFL players would kill to have the kind of run he's had.

Looking forward to the day he gets his gold jacket. I hope the Giants figure out a nice ceremony to send him off like an all time boss when there is time for it.
It's past time for a change  
lawguy9801 : 9/17/2019 10:50 am : link
But that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate how Eli has led this team, his Super Bowl runs, or the fact that he's a class act and a really good guy. An all-time great Giants QB and rightfully a Hall-of-Famer.
Favorite Giants player for me  
PatersonPlank : 9/17/2019 10:51 am : link
2 time Super Bowl MVP. I am sad about the glee of some here, not about moving on. Every QB needs to go sometime, even Montana and Bradshaw. I just don't find it such a joyous occasion as some.

I hope they don't turn back from Jones now, that would be a bad thing to do. I also wish him all the success Eli has had, that would be a great career.
I'm not saying that Jones won't be successful  
Biteymax22 : 9/17/2019 10:51 am : link
But there will be time in the future when we look back and realized how fortunate our team was to have a quarterback that never missed a game due to injury, handled the New York media with dignity and class and raised his level of play when it mattered most.

The NFC championship game against SF should go down as the best QB performance in Giants history, not because of the numbers or the win, but because of the absolute beating he took while continuing to get up and keep leading his team.

He's been disrespected by the media in the past, underappreciated by his peers in the NFL and the scapegoat for many fans, but we've watched a slew of QBs come and go in the NFC east while he was a constant for a franchise that didn't surround him with talent for the last 6-7 years of his career.

Eli will be missed. We can joke about how similar him and Jones are, but there will never be another Eli Manning.
Greatest Giant of All Time

By a mile...

One of the toughest QB's and most clutch players ever in NFL history.

Thank you so much for your performances during the two superbowl runs. Some of my best memories as a fan of sports.

We Love You Eli

Mr. Mara you better retire #10 the same day Eli announced his retirement!
Thank you Eli..  
nyblue56 : 9/17/2019 10:51 am : link
by far the best Giant since simms and Taylor. Nothing but love and respect for this man. Great teammate. Great pro. This organization completely left him out on a limb for 7 years, with bad picks, bad free agents, bad coaches. At one point Eli had to play with Eric flowers, orleans darkwa, will tye, and some other jags as teammates and took not one shot at the front office. think about that.
A bit sad that it ends this way  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 9/17/2019 10:51 am : link
but it was time...

Guy gave his best and was nothing but class. Never threw a teammate or a coach under the bus, took the blame for things that weren't his fault and was an even better man than a football player.

History will judge him well.

On the other hand, he was benched to give the rookie experience on a terrible team going no where. Not because, as ESPN and some on BBI would have you believe, because he ran out of juice and overstayed his welcome, like Favre, et al.
So weird

Our office is moving at the end of this week so I am packing mine up. One of the things I had to do yesterday was remove all of the fan art, graphics and memes (dozens of them) I had printed and put up on my office walls from the Giants two most recent Super Bowl runs/wins and more than a few were of Eli. I didn't realize it was a precursor to today's news, which just feels so strange to me. I will forever appreciate Eli Manning and will always treasure my Manning jersey (as I also do my Strahan jersey). I just wish he had a better ending.

I was 26 years old when the Giants drafted Manning.  
Britt in VA : 9/17/2019 10:57 am : link
Unmarried, no kids, living in a different place. In those 16 years, I've gotten married, had a dog (born and died), had two children (8 and 5 now), moved to a new place, bought a new house, sold the house 8 years later, bought a new house four years ago....

16 years is a LONG time. He was a staple of my Fall and Winter Sundays for all of those years, and brought me my best sports memories. And now I have to kids that I couldn't even imagine when he was drafting wearing his jersey and calling him their favorite player.

Thanks Eli.
Thank You Eli!!

Never forget what you have done in this famous blue and white jersey.

Was just thinking about posting something similar. I was 24, about to be 25 when he was drafted, single, and fresh out of college. Now Iím 40, married, and well entrenched in my career. Itís the end of an era, and I still believe itís not all his fault, and this mess goes much deeper than the quarterback. But, at least, we can find out more about Jones now
Thanks Eli. Greatest QB in Giants History

Itís been a wild ride. Some of the highest sports highs of my life were because you stepped up when it mattered the most. Iíll never forget what a clutch mofo you were. One of the best Giants ever.

End of an era, wow.
The best quarterback in the league in 2011  
widmerseyebrow : 9/17/2019 11:05 am : link
And yes, I know what the other QBs did that year. Eli was in the conversation numbers-wise and blew their doors off with the fourth quarter comebacks and, of course, the fat ring.
he deserves more

So many ups and downs. More ups though. You were a constant. A reliable element that led this team to two championships. Classy and consistent. An unselfish winner. Thank you for doing great things on my favorite sports team and making it really easy to root for you.

Such a damn shame how Eli's prime was wasted by the Giants' management. So much more was possible if the Giants front office wasn't infected by such incompetence. Eli was never quoted in the papers complaining about it, but MAN, he'd have every right to. A great Giant who deserved better.
Thank you  
Giantophile : 9/17/2019 11:28 am : link
Eli. I thought I would spend my entire adult life without seeing the Giants ever win a Super Bowl. You willed TWO of them into existence and were a class act from day 1. THANK YOU.
