    The only thing that happened there is that the injury was misreported by Mortenson.
    On the “Americas Game” video that covers that year, Eli Manning speaks about the doctor telling him he needed to sit for a month and that he said he wouldn’t because he wasn’t going to miss any games.

    A shoulder injury also has to do with messing up the mechanics of throwing a football.

    If Eli Manning had played back then on that NY Giants team with the offensive line, running game and defense we had, he would have won 3-4 SuperBowls. Also, Eli Manning would never leave the sidelines of a SuperBowl his team was playing in because he felt “in the way” and was upset that Jeff Hosstettler was out there. I know a QB that did do that.

    So perhaps Simms doesn't mind getting hit. Perhaps Eli also doesn't mind getting smashed either, but is smart enough to contort his body to take the blow. lol Hence the longevity of his career.
