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.

    •   Actually, he got one, Conley had the other one.  I like everything about that clip except being reminded of that Clemson game.  What a debacle.   Let's all hope he picks off Deshaun a couple more times this year.
    • If they got Griffin they have a shot to beat anyone.  CP3, Harden and George or Melo on the other hand, would be tough but out of GS and CLE league in my opinion.  The Spurs could possibly still beat them.  I think Melo would fit better because he could play power forward.  I don't think Houston has the young pieces that Ind wants to cut loose of George.  Plus I don't think George would re-sign there. 
    •   Telling everyone he is on schedule is not a lie and not hiding behind anything. Why do you need to make an issue out of not having a date? He is in the healing process and there more than likely is not a hard date to give. It is his right to keep anything medical a private matter if he chooses to. There are laws protecting his rights just like for me or you.
    • I don't disagree with you but they have literally nobody inside.  Melo might be able to play power forward.  They still don't beat the Warriors or Cavs with Geroge, Harden and Paul, I think the Spurs could still beat them to be honest.  I don't think they'll get George because he won't re-sign there nor do they have the young pieces to trade that Ind would want.
    • Then tell the truth then, stop hiding behind "we are on schedule" or "it feels good"! What do you expect then? Geez..   I don't know why Luck can't say "yes I'm behind the recovery stage" or " yes I'm scheduled to start throwing in 2 weeks" ?   Why all the hiding?
