Tom Brady has said he wants to play into his mid-to-late 40s. The only quarterback to beat him in a Super Bowl, Eli Manning, said Tuesday he thinks he can at least make it to 40.

“Yeah, I think sitting here right now, I think I can play another four years,” the 36-year-old quarterback of the New York Giants told ESPN.

“That’s the way the body feels. … Again with football, you don’t know what’s going to be the difference, how you’re going to feel next year. And right now I still have the same enthusiasm and I’m working hard and I like doing the training and watching film and doing everything … I have to do to prepare for it. So I don’t see it slowing down. I think until the time comes or that changes, I’m going to keep going as hard as I can.”

Manning is under contract through the 2019 season; he would turn 40 at the end of the 2020 season.

The Giants have talked about limiting his workload this summer and keeping him on a “pitch count,” and they’ve acknowledged that Davis Webb, their third-round pick out of California, could end up as Manning’s replacement in the not-too-distant future.

In January, Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the 14-year veteran and two-time Super Bowl champ is “probably on the back nine” of his football jerseys china

Manning has been one of the more durable quarterbacks in NFL history. He is scheduled to start his 200th consecutive regular-season game in the season opener at the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 10.

I spent a portion of my Friday afternoon arguing with strangers on the internet about Eli Manning’s Hall of Fame candidacy.

My take: Two Super Bowl MVPs, both wins against the Patriots, never missed a start, stats that will put him in the top 10 of most relevant passing categories by the time he retires. Eli has never been a perfect quarterback, but he certainly was a very important one in his era. Add it all up and he’s a Canton slam dunk … for me anyway. And this is coming from a chemically sedated Jets fan.

Anyway, perhaps the End Around’s clear soft spot for Big Blue’s No. 10 has something to do with the fact that Manning is just so … well … he’s just so Eli. I mean, look at this man dance!

The song blasting in the Giants locker room is “Take It To Da House” by Trick Daddy. It’s a personal Eli fave.

“That’s my jam, I just couldn’t hold back,” Manning explained to the New York Post. “I was just kind of messing around, saying, ‘This is how I dance. I’m staying right here, this is as extreme as it gets.’ Just kinda messing around with some of the guys. Not knowing … I guess you got to assume you’re being watched at all times.”

Damn, that quote got a little dark in the end. Anyway, here’s a hot take: Eli’s not even the worst dancer here. Damon “Snacks” Harrison is kind of a mess. All in good fun though. All in good fun.
