    Eli is the man. Retired 2-3 years now and can walk onto any college field and obliterate any QB competition. That's how good he was. Eli's foot work is amazing.

      Pretty much any former NFL QB, even former backups. There's really no competition between college and pros.

    This was pretty cool 😎! I became an Eli Manning fan today. I didn’t realize he has such a good sense of humor. He had me laughing out loud while watching. “ Think fast run fast “. I love it! This made my day, it’s so funny.

    This was absolutely fantastic, Eli was a great sport...
    Eli if you somehow see this,
    That was totally cool of you to do that. All of those kids are going to remember this day for the rest of their lives.
    The day that they practiced with a super bowl champion.
    Absolutely admirable of you sir.

    Chad's "Think fast, run fast!" was hilarious. "I got a hose." I spit my coffee out when he said that to a kid. Then he flips it 40yds downfield without straining. Poor kid probably thought, I don't have a chance!

    For real though, even a 41 year old who hasn’t played ball in several years clearly stands out from the crowd. Sometimes people forget how good these guys have to be to play pro ball.

    I have always enjoyed watching the Mannings play! I can't imagine what it would mean to the walk-ons to have a professional like Eli in their midst. I'm sure that it had to be inspirational to see what he can still do in his 40's. Great job Eli, for doing this with the guys!

      @HE’S coming soon What's a Jesus? I only believe in one god, and that's Zeus (a few Romans called him Jupiter). He's pretty badass - lives at the top of a reasonably tall mountain in northern Greece. I suppose your Jesus guy and Zeus could fight and that could make for a solid pay-per-view match.

      So true Eli is nothing but the best compared to the scmoo who played in Green Bay ! That guy took money from the poor and couldn't even build a volleyball build for his daughter and than she transferred any ways. Hey I am from Minnesota so I won't say or spell his name on top of that it was the dumbest most absurd thing ever was for the Vi-Queens to pay the scmoo 20 million a year! Go Terry Bridgewater ! Possibly the best quarter back the Vi-Queens have had since Tarkenton ? Terry played for cheap money. and all the other q-b's were washed up has bends Moon.Cunningham Mr.Bandana from Chicago the list is long ect.

      ​@Clarnus FYI
      Romans 1:19-20
      19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
      Yes even people on an isolated island can come to know God.

      @Jesus Saves! Why are we to have faith in these fantastic stories when the only perpetuator of such are misguided humans? If you were never brainwashed by your parent(s) or other influential figure(s), you would have zero inkling of the existence of any deities or the legends attached. If you had been born on a remote island, where Jesus' or Allah's or whatever's name had never been muttered, would you somehow have ascertained this information yourself? If you died on this island, would you be welcomed into the afterlife even though you never read the Quran or Bible or prayed? Or is religion just an ancient human coping method to tangle with our purposeless existence?

      @M They have been saying that for years about soccer in the USA. Too many sports to compete with. NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL. Even wrestling, boxing, MMA, is more popular in the USA than soccer. I love soccer, it will gain more popularity but never surpass the top 3 sports in the USA. It's just the way it is.

      Soccer is the greatest sport on Earth with over 4 Billion fans and massively popular in over 250 nations including dependencies. Basketball only has 825 million fans and massive in less than 30 countries. Soccer is more popular than basketball in over 230 nations including India. Baseball is only popular in less than 15 countries while American football is only big in the USA. Soccer will be the number 1 sport in the USA by 2050 and more than 300 million Americans will convert to soccer fnbfvfk

    Chad definitely looks older (but tougher) than Eli. But Eli is a natural on the gridiron, and surprisingly as an actor and comedian. I knew that a few years back when he shocked me with his talent when he hosted SNL. Love it. I'm 70 and crippled from back surgery, but I'm sure I still have my laser jump shot. I'm inspired to try out for the Lakers. Hate those fuckers so I'm hoping they'll give me a 10 day contract and I can make more of a mess of things than they already are.

      For anyone reading this: JESUS loves you so much that HE gave up HIS own life for you on the cross, and if you repent of your sins, and accept HIM as Lord and Savior, you will become a Christian, and you will have everlasting life

      I feel like QB is the most charismatic position in the sport, after that maybe Corner/Safety

    The QB coach started to recognize his plays. HENCE, " I see something in him." He kept attempting to look directly in his face. Hysterical.

    That one coach was definitely feeling Chad Powers. "Dotted him, oh!" "Good anticipation!" "I think I'm gonna sign this Powers guy. I think I see something in him." "Alright, alright. I see you baby!" "Don't worry, Chad'll get it out there."

      Mr. Archie, Cooper, Eli all great down to earth people. Peyton used to have a little chip on his shoulder. Haven't been down to their football camp at Nicholls State in a long time. Perhaps he's mellowed in his retirement.

  • Понемногу о Многом

    I came to NY City from Russia at 2014 winter. NY was ready for SuperBowl. I came to Macys and seen some different jerseys with MANNING name on the back: orange and blue. And could not understand. When became a fan of American football I understood what's going on. Eli - it's my symbol of a football. Thank you so much
