Colin Cowherd: “Sports Hall of Fames are about historical relevance. You cannot tell the NFL's story without Eli Manning. You can’t tell the story of the greatest football family ever – the Mannings – without Eli. You can’t tell the greatest quarterback of all time’s story – Tom Brady – without Eli. You can’t tell the story about the greatest dynasty in NFL history without Eli. And you can’t Bill Belichick’s story without Eli either. He has the craziest completion in Super Bowl history to David Tyree. Jim Plunkett is in the Hall of Fame and you can tell the story of the NFL without him.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks beloved New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is as deserving to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as anyone ever has.
Manning was never a dominant performer or an MVP candidate during his 16-year career, as he only finished 117-117, with a touchdown to interception ratio of 366-244, but Colin argues that Eli’s career will go down as one of the most legendary ever, considering he heroically overthrew the Patriots dynasty not once, but twice on the sport’s biggest stage.
Check out the video above as Colin argues that a book written about the history of the NFL would heavily involve Eli as one of the main characters.
