Good morning, New York Giants fans. Here is a question to ponder while you wipe the sleep from eyes this morning. Would Eli Manning really retire rather than play an organization other than the New York Giants? That's what his dad, Archie Manning, thinks would happen if that scenario ever comes to pass.

"Peyton's enjoyed his three years with the Broncos but he always envisioned himself playing for one team. So I'm glad when he did have to change, he made a good choice," Archie said Thursday on Radio Row after flipping pizzas with Joe Montana. "But Eli, I think if the Giants traded Eli, he would retire. He loves his team. He loves the New York Giants."

Valentine's View: Not everybody gets the Michael Strahan or John Elway fairy tale ending. I can't believe Eli would retire rather than continue to play if he still felt capable, and if he was still being paid handsomely.

Odell Beckham's world record for one-handed catches didn't last long.
