Brady joked that Manning’s two Super Bowl titles (which came at the Patriots’ expense) were still on his mind.
Congratulations on your retirement, and a great career Eli! Not going to lie though, I wish you hadn’t won any Super Bowls.

Manning addressed the tweet during his press conference, acknowledging the two had discussed those games in the past.
“I’ve been around Tom. I know how competitive he is,” Manning said. “We joke around about this a little bit. But it’s not real funny to him.”
Beating those Patriots teams will always be Manning’s legacy, and apparently not even six titles are enough to make Brady happy.
