On the same day that Eli Manning retired from the game of football after a 16-year career with the Giants, another star New York quarterback sang some high praises for the two-time Super Bowl champion.
Joe Namath, who played 12 seasons in New York with the Jets and brought the city it's first Super Bowl back in 1969, believes that Manning might just be the best quarterback to ever play here.
"I was pretty good and did some things. Eli, I marveled at. He was remarkable," Namath told The Post Friday morning. "I wouldn't compare myself to Eli. He's done far more than I ever did on the field."
