Eli Manning is retiring

Recommended Posts

Go get you that DSRL championship you deserve, Eli.

So much for my closeted hope he'd end up as the Chargers' starting QB to close his career instead of to begin his career.  The circle would have been complete.

Smart decision. Tell your boy Alex Smith to be smart too. Enjoy retirement. winking-thumbs-up-smiley-emoticon.gif

Seemed like a foregone conclusion toward the end of the year. It'll never feel right, but he'll have a gold jacket one day.

Good for him.  I'll miss the Eli face, but I won't miss facing him twice a year.

next few offseasons will see "franchise" QB's announcing their retirement. A new generation is about to finally take over

Sincerely hope the HOF voters aren't blinded by the two rings and see him for the Jim Plunkett figure he is.

Now we will have to wait until at least 2026 for the next time a Manning QB plays in an NFL game.

Yep. Brees, Brady, Rivers and Big Ben. The end of 2000s QB golden era. The new OLD guard will now be headlined be Rodgers, Ryan, Stafford, and Newton.

Amazing that that group only has 1 ring between them.

Yeah, most famous assassins are either patsies who were set up by their government or dimwits who got lucky.
