Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a guest on the NFL Network today and admitted that he thought his brother Peyton was done after his first neck surgery when Rich Eisen asked him for some insight into Peyton’s rehab.
“I saw him after his first neck surgery and I was pretty much convinced that he was done. You know, that there was no way he could come back and play football. That first time we were just throwing in the backyard of our house ….we ere throwing 15 yards away and it was a lob. He couldn’t throw 15 yards on a line. It had no pop,” said Eli.
