Fans of the New York Giants were very saddened to hear the news of the departure of quarterback Eli Manning. 16 seasons with the Giants were the best in Eli’s career. And in early 2020, he decided to take off his boots and give his place to another player.
Manning helped his team win the Super Bowl against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Thanks to his work for the good of the team, he deservedly received the title of one of the greatest NFL defenders. His contribution to the success of the team is priceless. Super Bowl 42 is considered to be the old age of Spruce’s brilliant career. After that, he went through many matches and was constantly on the top of the list of the best Super Bowl players.
Despite the fact that Manning was different from his fellow quarterbacks and belonged to a different sports group, his playing position in each game was strong and tough. Few people know that Manning went on the field not recovering completely after injuries. In the 2009 season, he entered the field with a fully torn plantar fascia.
In his interview, Manning has repeatedly spoken about his offseason workouts. He is sure that thanks to intensive training and taking care of his body throughout the whole year and not only in season, but he is also the first rule of a successful athlete career in any sport.
His workouts always include weighted squats that make his legs strong. Also, most of the training is occupied by an exercise to develop strength in the hands.
Throughout his career, Manning has achieved tremendous results:

In 2019, Daniel Johnson came to replace Manning. When Daniel was injured during the season, Manning came to the aid of his team and entered the field, but in the 2020 season, he decided not to go. That was his decision.
President and CEO of the giants John Mara spoke about the departure of the best player from his team and said that for him and the team, Eli was more than the best quarterback for 16 seasons. He expressed great gratitude to Eli Manning for his professionalism and the success of the team.
