Manning has commanded this team for 162 straight games since his first start in November 2004.
By comparison, the Cleveland Browns have used 16 starting quarterbacks since the 2004 season.
Partially due to a poor offensive line or poor running game or both, Manning has looked helpless at times. With a respectable 229 career touchdowns and 171 career interceptions, he has not overpowered defenses like brother Peyton has done countless times.
If Manning records 400 yards and four touchdowns in one game, many believe it is simply Eli being Eli. On the other hand, if Manning throws four interceptions and can’t break 100 yards, many also believe that is Eli being Eli.
Regardless of your opinion on Manning, he will go down as one of the best quarterbacks in Giants history. He has had many great moments in a Giants uniform and will likely have many more down the road.
Manning has become one of the best at executing in the clutch too, which not surprisingly is a theme in many of the slides.
Be warned, though, this slideshow does not simply recap Manning’s best games statistically. This slideshow is intended to show the moments that best define Manning’s career.
