The Giants airline charter suddenly landed in Washington DC, and the pilots left the aircraft. When found later, the pilots stated "since the team only showed up for three fourths of the game, we decided to only take three fourths of the way home." While bickering on the plane, Plaxico ripped into his quarterback for his poor effort. Eli picked up a can of coke and threw it at Plaxico's chest. The horribly thrown can missed its intended target and hit a flight attendant in the head. Eli had to throw the luggage on the team plane, but his aim was so bad he threw it on the plane bound for Dallas. Eli Manning can now only be referred to as Ellie.
