Things have been far from quiet this offseason when it comes to NFL quarterbacks. A number of signal-callers changed teams, some saw their organization draft their successors and others are feuding with management. The volatility at the position makes one wonder if we’ll ever see another Eli Manning again. Manning, of course, spent his entire 16-year NFL career with the New York Giants, ultimately retiring after the 2019 season. He earned four Pro Bowl trips and hoisted the Lombardi Trophy twice during his career, and for his efforts, Big Blue announced no player will ever don Manning’s No. 10 jersey again. He now shares that honor with Peyton, whose number was retired by the Colts in 2017. The patriarch of the family, Archie Manning, didn’t have quite the same success as his Super Bowl-winning sons, and as you might expect (and what Eli noticed), his highlight reel is quite different than his sons’ tape.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. It’s rare for any QB to get his jersey retired by a team and even rarer for two brothers to earn the distinction. So with that in mind, only 29 quarterbacks have had their numbers officially retired by NFL franchises in league history. How many of the 29 can you name in five minutes?
