With Eli Manning retiring, my one Eli story: I was 25 & working at the Clarion-Ledger in Mississippi. Flew to NY to write a feature on the ex-Ole Miss QB. I requested a 1-on-1, expecting nothing. I was nobody. He gave me 15 minutes in a sit down. Just classy, cool & appreciated.

My Eli Manning essay, on his retirement. Forever a champion. @nflnetwork
The only QB to beat Tom Brady in multiple Super Bowls: Eli Manning.
Drew Brees on Eli Manning “you can not write the story of the NFL without including Eli Manning.” #giants
The lighter side of Eli Manning.
and Eli do Dirty Dancing.
Eli Manning is certainly defined by two Super Bowl wins over @Patriots
but ask 2011 @49ers
defense and they will tell you what a warrior Eli was in NFC championship game that @Giants
won 20-17 in OT in SF. Eli took a beating, kept getting off the grass to deliver.
Good Morning America @GMA
Eli Manning will retire after 16 years and 2 #SuperBowl victories with @Giants
has nothing but love for his former QB 💙
Eli Manning is going to the Hall of Fame. Stop wasting your time getting mad at people online who are creating new metrics to judge how players get voted into the HOF. #10 is going to be in Canton.
2011 is most misremembered in Eli Manning’s career.
People think he was OK that year behind a “great” D
#Giants defense finished bottom 5, rushing offense bottom 5, pass block OL dead last.
He willed them to 9 wins and a SB with a bad roster. Outlier year, sure, but it happened.
Eli Manning was one of my all time favorites. I always kidded I was President of his fan club. I appreciated what he did on and off the field for the @Giants
. I’m glad he’s walking away from the game in good health. Next steps he takes will be into Canton. 💙#ThankYouEli
Remember in 2004 when Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning squared off for the first time in their rookie 2004 seasons? #Steelers https://t.co/KlH0cbb5ca
Michael Kay: “Do you think you’re an elite QB?”

"You cannot tell the story of the NFL without Eli Manning."
reacts to the retirement of the New York Giants QB:
Family source also tells me Joe Burrow would never “pull an Eli Manning” if drafted No. 1 by the #Bengals.
The family has been a bit annoyed by that narrative.
Super piping hot take: Eli Manning is roughly the Yadier Molina of football
The only Pro Bowl talent or even close to an All-Pro talent Eli Manning ever had was Odell Beckham. Won a super bowl with no running game or o-line. Won a super bowl against all odds against a 18-0 team. He’s not a HOF? Eat a dick
If you’re going to put Eli Manning in the Hall of Fame (which he’ll most likely get in) due to his “postseason success” then Julian Edelman sure as hell deserves to be in too. #Patriots
Can't wait until Eli Manning is voted into the Hall of Fame and all these haters run outside, drop to their knees and scream at the sky.
Does Eli Manning belong in the Pro Football Hall of Fame?
“Eli Manning just got lucky” Please explain throws like this. I’m no longer engaging with trolls tryn to slander someone who has more Super Bowls than Drew Breese and Aaron Rodgers. Winning is what matters https://t.co/cDafwGdByE
