Washington - President Barack Obama is honoring the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, crediting them as a team that didn’t quit despite obstacles.

It was the second title in four years for Super Bowl MVP quarterback Eli Manning and the Giants. Obama said for many members of the team, “this is just welcome back” to the White House.

The Giants won their final two regular-season games to win the NFC East. The team then won four postseason games, capped by a 21-17 Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots.

Obama said while no one on the team was “perfect”, everyone did their job.

As Obama seeks re-election, Giants coach Tom Coughlin joked that “we both have a goal” to get back to the White House next year.
