    "As the starting quarterback at Mississippi, Eli Manning was forced to live up to the standards set by his father, Archie, at Ole Miss, let alone trying to avoid the shadow of older brother Peyton. Eli forged his own reputation, however, by setting or tying 47 school records, among them the passing mark (by throwing for 10,119 yards). Amid controversy, Manning went as the number one pick in the 2004 NFL draft when he was selected by the San Diego Chargers, who in turn immediately traded him to the New York Giants. The Giants now have one of the NFL's premier quarterbacks, who finished his collegiate career by leading Ole Miss to a 2004 Cotton Bowl victory. Eli Manning has hand signed this authentic blue Giants jersey which comes with a Steiner Certificate of Authenticity. "

    Eli Manning 2006 NFL season

    Eli's second full season was reminiscent of his 2005 campaign. He started off playing well and completed over 65 percent off his passes through the first four games. However, he struggled mightily in the second half of the season and his production fell off towards the end of the regular season. After losing a tough game to his brother Peyton and the Colts on opening day, Eli responded with the best comeback of his career. He rallied the Giants from a 24-7 deficit on route to a stunning 30-24 overtime victory over the division rival Eagles in week two. Manning threw for a career high 371 yards in the win and tossed three touchdowns including the game winner to Plaxico Burress in overtime. Following a poor team performance against Seattle, Eli and the Giants responded by winning five straight games including wins over the Redskins, Cowboys and Falcons to run their record to 6-2.

    Following the winning streak though, key injuries including one to reliable receive Amani Toomer began Eli's swoon. Against the Bears, he was held to only 141 yards passing and two interceptions. He struggled the next week at Jacksonville and a costly interception helped to culminate a huge collapse at Tennessee. The Giants blew a 21 point fourth quarter lead to lose. Eli improved the following week against the Cowboys, throwing for 270 yards and two touchdowns, but still the Giants lost again. Regaining momentum, he threw three touchdowns in a win at Carolina, but then stumbled badly in the final three games. He was picked off twice against the Eagles and threw for only 73 yards in a game against the Saints. Although the Giants battled back to 8-8 the following week at Washington, Eli completed only 12 of 26 passes for 101 yards and one touchdown. The Giants qualified for the postseason and met the Eagles again. Although he was significantly better this time around as compared to the 2005 showing, completing 16 of 27 passes and two touchdowns, the Giants lost on a last second field goal.

    For the year, Manning threw for 3,244 yards, 24 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. He completed 57.7 percent of his passes, a five point improvement from 2005, but again, struggled badly in the second half of the season. With the loss of running back Tiki Barber to retirement and the development of Philip Rivers, Shawn Merriman, and Nate Kaeding in San Diego (the traded draft picks), some are beginning to question the value of the 2004 Draft Day Trade and some are wondering whether or not Eli will ever become a consistent and reliable quarterback in the NFL.
