A friend of mine told me it shows the boys when they were little and how the older brother would get Peyton to cry a lot but they could never get Eli to cry. :)

My favorite ESPN 30 for 30 was the Band that wouldn't die, although that one may be the least popular one in Indy.

Wikipedia excerpt on Archie.

 

Manning played for the Saints for ten full seasons.[1] He was usually one of the few marquee players on a dreadful team. During his tenure in New Orleans, the Saints had nine losing seasons, and only managed to get to .500 once (1979). Nevertheless, he was well respected by NFL peers. For example, he was sacked 340 times during his Saints career. According to Sports Illustrated senior writer Paul Zimmerman, it should have been much more than that. However, Zimmerman wrote, opposing defensive linemen, "Jack Youngblood in particular," were known to take it easy on the poorly protected Manning and not hit him as hard.[9][10]

For his part Manning seemed to appreciate Youngblood's kindness, telling the Los Angeles Times, on September 23, 1974, "The Rams front four is the best I ever faced . . . I've got to say that Youngblood was nice enough to pick me up every time he knocked my (butt) off." Today, Manning jokes that Youngblood's career would not have been as successful without him. He even suggested that Youngblood should have let him be his presenter when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001, saying, "He wouldn’t have gotten in without having me to sack.

    • NFL's Chad Reuter gives Colts A for Draft
      And this is what I've been trying to tell people. Yes, there are some people in the media who are just happy the Colts took a couple of offensive lineman because it fits the narrative that the Colts needed to draft for need and did.   But smarter analysts like Reuter realize that's drafts are about value and the Colts got incredible value with each pick. You go for value each round, not need. The Colts held true to their BPA ideal and were able to get good value and fill needs. That's how you draft.

      I like how when I click fan forum I only have to click it once to get to the forum index. Before, I would have to click a few other links to get to the forum index.

      That article really speaks on him in the pure FS role.  Colts recognize he'll need a little work and I'm sure they feel they can coach him into it.  Right now he'll help us in the sub packages on the tight ends and other stuff which I think he'll do well at that as he learns.   
    • Ryan Leaf's Comment on Johnny Manziel
      I agree with Chad and Girlzarefanstoo. There are just so many circumstances with these things, and no two people are the same. My father AND my grandfather were alcoholics, but both had different situations and choices to how they became that. Sometimes a person put in a certain environment will react to said environment, and other times they won't. From experience, it does often come down to choice. My father decided he had a problem and on his own sought for help, which saved his life. My grandfather didn't, and his health deteriorated severely.    Humans are both predictable and unpredictable. It's quite often we never get the explanation or reason for an action that we personally want, because sometimes there isn't a reason. Sometimes people just... do.
