We willl miss the Manning moments.
Though the last few years have been rough for Eli, his career is something to marvel at.
He’s throw for over 57,000 yards in his career with 366 touchdowns and 244 interceptions. He’s been on the roster for 4 Pro Bowls and it would have been more, but Super Bowl participants are prohibited from Pro-Bowl play.
Oh by the way, he led the Giants to 2 Super Bowl victories in 2008 and 2012.
Many fans have turned their backs on Manning. His recent on-field troubles have let a lot of Giants fans down. It’s also made Manning a punchline for “players who should give it up”. His talent is undeniable and even if he should have retired years ago, he’s still Eli.
We will miss the Manning moments.
