Eli Manning prepared for Daniel Jones to carry on his Giants legacy

"Congratulations on your retirement, and a great career, Eli!"

It also makes Eli a bit more of a financial success, in on-field earnings anyway, than his brother Peyton Manning, who retired after the 2015 season having earned about $249 million in 18 seasons.

This was the day Eli Manning announced his retirement, a significant moment in team history and there was Jones, tasked with producing for the Giants what Manning accomplished in his 16 years.

Eli Manning retires with two Super Bowl wins, both over one of the most dominant teams of the era, the New England Patriots. "I could not be someone other than who I am". Manning shouldn't be a first-ballot guy, but it looks like the pros will outweigh the cons and lead to his eventual Hall call.

Many current and former players from across the league took to social media to congratulate the two-time Super Bowl MVP on an wonderful career. Ultimately I choose to believe that my teammates and the fans learned to appreciate that. "What they got was pure unadulterated Eli".

"If anybody deserved that opportunity it's Eli Manning".

"I've been around Tom".

If his Super Bowl spikes were an anomaly to mostly medicore play, akin to what Joe Flacco did with the Ravens, then it would be case closed and the Hall of Fame would never open its door to Manning. I know how competitive he is.

"I remember when we made a decision to start him as a rookie, and right away, he plays Baltimore and he plays Washington", said Coughlin, who coached the Giants from 2004-15.

Beyond the gridiron, Manning's work with his Tackle Kids Cancer initiative has raised $700,000 through Eli's Challenge, including an additional $250,000 in support a year ago.

So when Brady congratulates Manning on his career and retirement, he's not exactly congratulating him for. those two February games.
