Three great things about Eli Manning
1.) In the wake of hurricane Katrina, along with his brother Peyton, Eli helped deliever 30,000 pounds of water, Gatorade, baby formula, diapers, and pillows to the people of New Orleans.
2.) Eli ended his high school career at Isidore Newman High School with 7,389 yards and 89 touchdowns.
3.) Eli and his brother (Indianapolis Colts' quaterback, Peyton Manning), together made NFL history on September 10, 2006 when the Giants and the Colts came up against each other. It was the first time that two brothers had started as opposing quarterbacks. Eli and the Giants fell to Peyton and the Colts.
In April of 2004, the Giants got the quarterback of the future that they wanted. But he didn't come cheap.
It was the San Diego Chargers that originally drafted the young quarterback with the first pick in the draft. A few picks later, the Giants picked North Carolina State quarterback Phillip Rivers with the fourth pick.
The Giants and the Chargers negotiated a trade that put Eli in New York, and sent Phillip Rivers to San Diego along with their third round pick, and their first and fifth round picks in the 2005 draft.

TAMPA, Fla. — Most of the red-clad fans had turned their backs and gone, but a pocket of blue boiled in the northwest corner of the stadium, near the abandoned fake pirate ship on the concourse. The scoreboard overhead showed that the Giants had beaten the Buccaneers, 24-14... read more
IRVING, Tex. - In the days before their divisional playoff game with the Cowboys, the Giants were leery of raising the ire of their highly favored opponent and undermining their own quiet, underdog status. But they could not help but point out the perceived discrepancy in talent between the teams. The Cowboys had 12 players named to next month's Pro Bowl. The Giants had one... read more
GREEN BAY, Wis. - Under a full moon, a black sky and a crisp and cruel blanket of cold, the Giants stood on the frozen sideline of Lambeau Field, waiting for a rush of warmth.
It came belatedly and unexpectedly.
With one errant toss from a legendary quarterback, and one kick from the right foot of Lawrence Tynes, the Giants sent themselves from the northern prairie and into the southwestern desert, all the way to the Super Bowl. read more
GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Giants were not even supposed to be here, taking an unlikely playoff path through the behemoths of their conference and regarded, once they alighted on Super Bowl XLII, as little more than charming foils for the New England Patriots’ assault on immortality. read more
