Tom Brady attended Peyton Manning’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony, while making his usual jokes, something Eli Manning called him out on.
Peyton Manning was a lock for the NFL Hall of Fame from the day he retired. The former Super Bowl winner was inducted into the Hall of Fame during the NFL Hall of Fame game on Thursday when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys 16-3.
Peyton Manning was one of the many Hall of Famers inducted, and he had a very special guest in attendance. His long time NFL rival, Tom Brady, showed up and was a part of Manning’s personal section. Brady made a joke about his attendance before the event, saying:
I just need to make sure he’s really done. Can’t risk this guy coming back… https://t.co/8afUVxicjO

Eli Manning had his own jokes for Brady after seeing that Tweet.
Eli Manning Finds Another Way To Troll Tom Brady For His Peyton Manning Joke
Eli Manning, wanting to step in, and defend his older brother, had the perfect response to Brady’s joke. As Eli is retired from the NFL and Brady is not, it might not be a stretch to say that the former ends up in the Hall of Fame earlier than the latter.
Eli definitely has a case for the Hall of Fame. He’s won two Super Bowls, winning Super Bowl MVP in each, and he’s made the Pro Bowl four times. Eli’s Super Bowl wins have also been incredible.
If you don’t remember, back in the 2007 season, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were marching their way to the NFL’s only perfect season (in the Super Bowl era) ever. Eli and the New York Giants defense played spoilsport, pulling off one of the greatest (if not the greatest) Super Bowl upsets in NFL history.
The highlight of that game was Eli Manning avoiding what certainly looked like a sack to deliver an on-trarget strike to David Tyree who caught the ball on his helmet aka ‘The Helmet Catch.’
Is this David Tyree ‘Helmet Catch’ the greatest catch in NFL history? 🤔

In 2012, Brady had his chance for revenge. Once more, the odds were stacked against Manning and the G-Men who entered as a Wild Card team. Nevertheless, Eli made one of the greatest Super Bowl throws ever and the Giants upset the Pats again.
Eli Manning does it again.
Eight years ago today, Manning delivered a STRIKE to Mario Manningham and the Giants beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.

Playing the part of Brady’s kryptonite once more, Eli had to make sure to slip in a joke for his long-time NFL foe and friend.
Tommy, I will save a seat for you
