Sports What is Tom Brady's sweet, clever message to retiring Eli Manning?
Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history
Tom Brady has been synonymous with the AFC championship for the last two decades. Thirteen times he played for the Lamar Hunt Trophy and nine times he won it, besting MVP Patrick Mahomes in overtime, upending Blake Bortles in a classic comeback, denying Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers trips to the Super Bowl, foiling Ben Roethlisberger twice and Kordell Stewart once, and splitting two games with Joe Flacco. Peyton Manning he bested once but three other times he lost to his rival in the conference title game.
Eli Manning and Tom Brady have history … Super Bowl history. The retiring New York Giants quarterback got the best of the New England Patriots’ signal-caller twice. So what was the G.O.A.T.’s message to Manning as he steps away from football after 16 seasons?
Check this clever tweet:
Congratulations on your retirement, and a great career Eli! Not going to lie though, I wish you hadn’t won any Super Bowls.— Tom Brady (@TomBrady)
Eli Manning: “I’ve been around Tom. I know how competitive he is. We joke around about this a little bit.
“But it’s not real funny to him.”
Giants' Eli Manning retires after 16 seasons, 2 Super Bowls
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eli Manning, who led the New York Giants to two Super Bowls in a 16-year career that saw him set almost every team passing record, has retired. The Giants said Wednesday that Manning would formally announce his retirement on Friday. The recently turned 39-year-old's future had been in doubt since the end of the season. Manning's contract with the Giants expired after the 4-12 season and there was little chance he would be returning after losing his long-time starting job to rookie Daniel Jones.Manning said he wanted to think about his future after the season and roughly three weeks after the season ended he decided his career was over.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY)
Brady’s Patriots and Manning’s Giants dueled in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI, with Big Blue winning both games, 17-14, and 21-17, respectively. Manning threw for 551 yards and three TDs combined to Brady’s 542 and three TDs.
"For most of my life, people have called me easy. Believe me, there is nothing easy about today."

Brady, meanwhile will head to free agency. Oh, the Giants have hired Joe Judge, the Patriots’ former special teams coordinator/wide receivers’ coach. Could Big Blue, which has 2019 No. 1 draft pick and sixth overall, Daniel Jones, be in the market for a veteran QB?
Eli played like he was never afraid to fail. This was a small part of what made him so clutch in the biggest of games.
