Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was among the people sending along his well-wishes to retiring Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

Brady joked that Manning’s two Super Bowl titles (which came at the Patriots’ expense) were still on his mind.

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.
