After losing his starting job to rookie Daniel Jones, there has been ongoing speculation about the future of Eli Manning. On Wednesday, Manning retired from the NFL after 16 years with the New York Giants.
During his tenure, Manning threw for 57,023 yards, 366 touchdowns and 244 interceptions. Despite the last few seasons, he was a franchise quarterback that guided the Giants to two Super Bowl wins over the New England Patriots.
Aside from the Super Bowls, Manning broke over 30 passing records in Giants history. His NFL records include most passing yards in a single postseason, which he set in 2011 with 1,219 yards. In that same year, he set the record for most road victories by a quarterback in the postseason.
Despite the up’s and down’s, he will always be remembered as the greatest quarterback to put on a Giants uniform. With a strong Hall of Fame case, he will surely be missed by fans.
