If you wanted to hear Eli Manning’s full explanation on why he yelled at Ahmad Bradshaw not to score on what turned out to be his game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl XLVI, watch him as he discusses his thoughts on the “The Late Show with David Letterman” (on CBS!) that aired Monday night.

As the Super Bowl MVP walked out, he received a standing ovation from the crowd and a half-hug from Letterman before they discussed the game-winning play. Manning, of course, had a good reason for shouting at Bradshaw as he handed off the ball.

“When you score a touchdown, you don’t want to give Tom Brady time to score a touchdown,” Manning said. “He’s very good in that situation.”

VIDEO: Eli discusses Bradshaw on Letterman

I am one of those people who would want to score preferably a touchdown instead of going down on the goal line and work the clock so that Brady won't have time for a comweback drive. How many times so we see a bad snap or something crazy happen that shouldn't happen? Just because you're on the goal line doesn't mean it's a guarantee that you're going to score plus it's not also a guarantee thing that the field goal is not going to be block or even missing the field goal. After all, this is the Super Bowl and players are human beings too so they too do get nervous. I was so happy when Bradshaw scored the td and leave it to the defense to stop Brady and company. One of the best ending to a Super Bowl game and I'm just so so so happy the Patriots didn't win.

Go GIANTS !!!!

Eli is a genuine warm hearted guy. Doesn't look like he has a bad bone in his body. Well done Eli and Giants!
