If you look at the big picture, he was an average quarterback who led the league in interceptions three times.
He also had the most turnovers by a quarterback since 2000.
But some football fans might argue that his two Super Bowl victories were enough to immortalize him in Canton.
He got it done on the biggest stage and that deserves recognition.
One of those victories came in Super Bowl XLII when they trailed the New England Patriots late in the fourth quarter.
Manning led the way by orchestrating what amounted to a two-minute offense that led to a Plaxico Burress touchdown catch.
Speaking of which, Manning named who he thought were rightful members of the Giants’ all-time two-minute line-up.
However, NFL insider Dov Kleiman had reservations about Manning’s list.
Jeremy Shockey probably has something so say about this one. https://t.co/IGmYqzpSPe

But Kleiman is making a case for Jeremy Shockey‘s inclusion.
It’s weird to see Boss in that lineup because Shockey had a more prominent career in New York.
Comparing Boss And Shockey
Boss played for the Giants from 2007 to 2010, making him a part of the Super Bowl XLII roster.
Meanwhile, Shockey played from 2002 to 2007 before he was traded to the New Orleans Saints.
He won Super Bowls with both the Giants and the Saints.
However, he was a four-time Pro Bowler and one-time All-Pro member during his stint in New York.
Therefore, Shockey should get the vote over Boss.
But it’s Manning’s list that is based on his opinion.
Still, it’s just right to give Shockey the credit he deserves.
