NYG Postgame (vs. Miami) Transcripts: S Michael Thomas -- December 15, 2019
Q: Were you surprised by the reaction that Eli (Manning) received?
A: I wasnít surprised, but it was definitely pleasant to hear. It was definitely something that we rallied behind and we got fired up about. Guys said letís call it like it is, we are playing for him. We are playing for Eli today. Letís send him off right. Heís a legend, letís send him off the right way.
Q: What was it like when they pulled him off the field?
A: Iíve never been a part of something like that. It was cool to see. It gave me chills, it gave me goosebumps. That man is a legend and we respect him. Iím glad we were able to get a win for him.
Q: Iím sure you saw Eli well up a little bit at the end. Have you ever seen him like that?
A: A little bit, but yeah that means a lot. We put so much into this game, but for him, the storm heís been through in his career, the ups and downs. The highest of highs, this year, technically he got benched or whatever and then having a situation where youíre starting again to end your career instead of oh well shoot, Iím going to end my career not playing. End his tenure with the Giants, historic. We just wanted to come out here and get the win for him, that was cool.
Q: Itís going to seem silly when he starts next week or in two weeks, right?
A: Shoot, shoot, exactly! Letís get another one then, shoot! Letís get another one for him!
