Eli Manning

Short bio: 

Elisha Nelson "Eli" Manning (born January 3, 1981) is a quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League and is the active iron man for consecutive starts by a quarterback. He is the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and the younger brother of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning played college football at the University of Mississippi after attending prep school at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. He was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and immediately traded to the New York Giants, who in return gave up a package highlighted by fourth overall selection Philip Rivers.

Manning holds Giants franchise records for most passing yards, touchdown passes and completed passes in a career, and the NFL record for most fourth-quarter touchdown passes in a season. He led the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI, defeating the New England Patriots in both games. Manning was also named Most Valuable Player in each Super Bowl, becoming one of five quarterbacks in history to have been given this honor twice. He is the only quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 4,900 yards and win the Super Bowl in the same season.

I have a very nice promotional piece for Superbowl 42. It's a neon bar sign promoting Coors beer and has a nice sunburst and the date in Arizona. It just seems fitting that you might want this. Please let me know if there is any interest. I would be happy to send a pic.

First, as a life long Giants fan, who is old enough to remember Homer Jones and Fran Tarkington, I want to offer my sincere thanks for all you have done for this franchise. You will always be remembered as one of the truly great Giants of all time. Second, you are too good a person and too good an athlete to end your career here. Please, for the sake of all of your fans, please get out of the Giants as soon as you can. Finish your career with an organization that appreciates you and that knows what it is doing. You deserve better than Ben Macadoo and Jerry Reese - and better than John Mara and Steve Tisch. Go win another super bowl with someone else who deserves your talents and go with the best wishes of all true Giants fans.

Dearest Eli.I am truly saddened to learn this afternoon that the Giants management and ownership has sacked you from the Giants organization just because you decided to take the moral high ground and standup and support something that you believe strongly about!! You have demonstrated today what the late President JFK would call "profiles in courage"!!! I will miss watching you as the great Giants' quarterback that you have been these past many years and for bringing pride and joy to us New York fans!! On the other hand you now have won the eternal respect,admiration and love of a whole other fan base....those millions of African-American males who daily live under the constant threat of police brutality and stop and frisk policies practiced by police departments throughout these United States of America. So Eli, you have earned the eternal respect and love from all of us for taking the higher moral high-ground today,even though you have sacrificed your career with the Giants organization because of it. You are a truly brave and very courageous soul indeed,that Americans don't get to see often enough.Hopefully because of your very prominent national visibility what happened to you today will go a very long way in helping to address this issue of the persistant and pandemic prevalence of institutionalized anti-Black male racism which continues to plague our nation like a cancer. God-Bless you for the sacrifice that you have made today,but rest assured that you have the eternal respect,love and devotion from millions of African American males throughout this entire land,for the stance that you have taken,in spite of the risks of losing your career!! We all salute you for your sacrifice and have earned our deepest respects,eternally!! And may your future career in the NFL,with another team,be as bright and successful,as you were when you were with us here in New York. We will miss you,but now,we will always have you in our thoughts.....daily!!! Peace out bro!!!!

I have been a lifelong Giants fan. When I was a young kid I was at the stadium every home game. I was there to see the great teams of the 80s go to the super bowl. It has been a true pleasure watching you play and grow into a great quarterback. The year my kids were born you win your first Superbowl a month later. Then 4 years later I got to share the next Superbowl with my son. I want to thank you for giving me the chance to share that with my son. Your superbowl wins were legendary. I know you need to do what's best for you but I would like to see you retire a Giant.

Dear Eli; I was the daytime security officer stationed on the 17th floor from 2007-2016 at the Hilton during summer camp and I just hope that everything works out for you this Sunday, the rest of the year and for as long as you want to play football you deserve nothing less. Good luck and may God Bless you and your family. Tom CCALLE

I have noticed that during the first two games of the 2018 season the cameramen keep focusing on the coach as he is speaking into his headset. He is not covering his mouth when speaking. Call me paranoid, but if someone can read lips, this might be helpful to the other team. Just sayin'. You might want to check into this.

I'm feeling down in my life and going through some bad times. I watch your highlights and been a fan, I seen how you over come so much and it gives so much hope. You ran a commercial a few years back about domestic violence and I listened to you man. I try to change and be better. Watching you stand in that pocket and take them hits and not given up.

Look Eli, you go down as a Giant great due to winning 2 super bowls, but it's time to move on which you should have a few years ago. You don't extend plays, can't throw the ball more than 20 yards with accuracy anymore, fall down if there is even a defender breathing on you, and just make too many dumb plays because you think you are still the Eli of old. It's time to move on Eli and please do because as long as you are our QB these days, we will continue to lose regardless of who we put around you. I hate to see these things I really do, but the truth hurts.

First of all, I want to thank you for everything you gave us Giants fans in your career. The 2 Super Bowls, the countless memories and the fact you showed up and played each week for over 14 years is more than we could ever ask for. While you probably won’t see this, I wanted to thank you for letting me live my football dreams vicariously through you. I’ve long dreamed about playing QB, but unfortunately, various disabilities, including one with my head prevented that dream from coming true. Thank you Eli and enjoy retirement.
