Tom Brady Congratulates Eli Manning On Retirement In Fitting Fashion

If it weren’t for Eli Manning, Tom Brady’s already legendary resume might look even better.

Manning officially retired Friday after 16 up-and-down seasons. The New York Giants quarterback did, however, reach the NFL’s peak twice, stepping over Brady and the New England Patriots both times on the way to hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

With Manning hanging ’em up, Brady sent his congratulations Friday, with a not-so-subtle mention of their shared past.

While Manning got the best of Brady twice on the biggest stage, more often than not it was Brady and the Patriots standing in the way of Eli’s older brother, Peyton. Brady probably can sleep just fine at night knowing his six Super Bowl rings are two more than the Manning brothers have — combined.
