The greatest quarterback in Giants history, Eli Manning, will officially retire on Friday.

Eli ends his fantastic, 16-year season holding every Giants passing record.

Career touchdowns: 366 (first in Giants history; 7th in NFL history).

Career passing yards: 57,023 yards (1st in Giants history; 7th in NFL history).

Career completions: 4,895 (1st in Giants history; 7th in NFL history).

Eli is also just one of five people in NFL history to win multiple Super Bowl MVP’s (the others are Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, and Tom Brady).

He is a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl Champion.

And, perhaps most importantly, Eli embodied class and toughness and poise in these controversial times.

Thank you, Eli!
