According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Eli has brought meaning to the life of a 89 year old and sparked the biggest city in the world to come to life.
Manning has a chance to take New York now, the way a quarterback hasn't taken it since Joe Namath. The Yankees and Mets are long gone, the Jets are a mess andYou know, Phil Simms, who has won a Super Bowl, may take an issue with the "times have been tough since Broadway Joe" storyline. Also, I'm not a Yankee or Met fan either, but this isn't really a drought since they have been to, or won, the World Series. Hell, they both played against each other in one not too long ago.
the Knicks are destined for the draft lottery. Manning has a chance to be a star in New York, where the football landscape is desperate for one.
