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.

Eli Manning leads fourth-quarter drive for a Super Bowl XLVI victory!


INDIANAPOLIS - Four years after Eli Manning and the Giants pulled off one of the greatest miracles in Super Bowl history, they did it again.

History repeated itself in incredible fashion on Sunday night, when the Giants rode another amazing fourth-quarter comeback by Manning to win their second Super Bowl championship in four seasons. And again, it came down to the final heart-stopping seconds of the game.

Eli Manning, 2007 Play Offs

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

      Yes but I would like for him to show more emotion instead of the one style facial expression.

      @JonitasKalimpo: Eli is a great guy! He is so nice and I am glad his superbowl dream came true. He is a great quarterback. And I am totally in love with him. He is really someone to look up to.

      Great lens man, I'm a life long Giants fan and I can't say that I always loved the man but I also didn't feel the hate that the NY sports media felt either. I felt like he won one for the little guy this winter, it was truly magic to watch.

      Thank God he won. He took a lot of crap from the media and proved himself to his critics. Such a nice guy. I am glad to have met him and glad that his Super Bowl dream came true. Could not have happened to a nicer guy.

      Well, since i'm not american and we don't have football here, it's strange to say "this guy is my hero!", but it's the truth. Long life for Eli

      Congrats on "Lens of the Day". Go Giants! Although I've been a Giants fan for decades, I do have some mixed emotions about the game's result. New England's Coach Bill is a former NY Giants Defensive Coordinator of the teams previous Superbowl wins. Hopefully it will be a great game. The Giants do match up well against the vaunted Pats and nearly defeated them in the "meaningless last game of the regular 2007 season".
