I will praise him forever for taking down the pats twice.

Not a bad legacy to leave behind while making tons of money and living in one of the best cities in the world in the process.

Great run, knocked off the Pats twice in the big one, healthy, nice family, good for him.  He beat Tom Brady 3 times in the big game.

(Not caring in any way, good or bad, about the NY Giants is such a wonderful feeling.)

In before Jets Fans get all worked about if he's a HOF'er or not (hint:  He will be.)

Greatest mediocre QB of all time 

Say what you want about him some of it is fair but when it counted he got the job done twice against the Pats in the Super Bowl which never happened with any other team.  The Eagles did it once but that way years later

He basically had a condo in jersey. I’d thought he lived in Louisiana ?

As long as you don't count the 7,300 square foot, $5 million dollar mansion in Summit or the $9 million dollar house he has in The Hamptons.

I’d sign up for Sam to have half the career Eli had.

 

i.e. at least ONE Super Bowl Win?

Where do I sign?

The dominos are starting to fall with these "old guard" QBs from the mid-2000's.  Eli, Rivers, Brady, Roethlisberger, and soon Brees and Rodgers.  The replacement cycle is on!  Let's hope we already have ours because some of those franchises have been spoiled with great QB play and aren't ready for what may be coming.

Also, they should feel free to call Joe Douglas for a trade up! :)

I don't know how many more times Rodgers, or Brady, or Brees competes for a Super Bowl.   There was definitely a feeling for me in these playoffs that the New QB Guard was replacing the Old QB Guard.  

But for those who say that the Mobile QB is the absolute new paradigm, let's see how Garapollo plays in the Super Bowl.  

But Eli is a good guy and real deal.  I have run into him over the years at charity events, and last year on vacation with his family.   One could argue that the Giants never should have paid him to be on the roster another year, but if you add it up, Eli Manning played football for at least a year basically for charity-he has donated an enormous amount to various causes-8 figures.   So maybe this was a way for the Maras to make it up to him.  

Darnold could learn alot from Eli Manning.

100% dude! It's bad enough we still have to hear from that Mercury Morris dickweed whenever a team has a deep undefeated run.

His performance against that 49ers defense in the 2012 title game is one of the greatest QB performances I’ve ever seen. Polarizing career but has some iconic moments that will be replayed forever  and two Super Bowls. Not to mention tough as nails and always showed up on Sunday regardless of ailments.

1.  Nice job in beating the Patriots.

2.  No HOF for you.

Next generation up, about 2027 or so with Arch

You wonder what would have changed in an alternate history of the NFL if Archie played baseball instead. He was taken by the Braves in '67 out of high school, the Chisox in '70, the Royals in the Jan. draft in '71 and  Chisox again out of 'Ole Miss. It had to have been a possibility at the time.

S'long Eli. Let 'em knock you but, Hey Kid, you were good.

That was fantastic!  I never rooted for the Giants harder in my life.

Was at the game and represented the Jets well!

He’s a mortal lock.

He shouldn't be but he probably is because people think QB's win championships in the ultimate team sport. No way he ever deserved superbowl mvp either.

You're not going to win this one. Two Super Bowl MVP's against the Patriots with one of those wins stopping an undefeated season gets you into Canton. He wasn't the QB of two Super Bowl teams, He was the MVP. His opponent of those two Super Bowl wins? 4 time Super Bowl MVP, Tom Brady.

Forgot about that game...
