Tom Brady keeps winning on Twitter, but he lost two Super Bowls to Eli Manning in his career, one reason why so many people think that Manning could be a Hall of Famer in a few years.
Those two facts combined made for arguably the best tribute tweet we’ve seen from an NFL player for the retiring Manning, sent just minutes before he emotionally delivered his final words as a New York Giant on Friday, when he made his retirement official.
Here’s what Brady had to say, and it was retweeted thousands of times while also being liked so many times not long after sending:
Congratulations on your retirement, and a great career Eli! Not going to lie though, I wish you hadn’t won any Super Bowls.

Oh that’s so good.
UPDATE: Here’s Manning’s response to the tweet:
Eli Manning: “I’ve been around Tom. I know how competitive he is. We joke around about this a little bit.
“But it’s not real funny to him.” https://t.co/OWZ8qCFEcE
