That's fantastic.  I love the Manning brothers.  I still remember the Double Stuf Racing League or whatever commercials.  Those were quality too.

Placico taught Eli that using guns is a bad idea, so Eli uses metallic footballs instead.  As a Giants fan i only wish Eli could be that accurate and have that good of decision making with a pass rush.  If he can do it with a gun in his face why not with a 240 lb. linebacker.

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but I do not think that Peyton Manning has ever shown any lack of class in handling his not winning the Heismen. He has never said he should have won it, never acted like he should have won it, and although he was clearly disappointed at the time, was the first to shake his hand at the ceremony. In fact, I seem to recall seeing the two of them chat when their teams should happen to play each other in the NFL.

Don't let Tennesse's rotten fanbase and coach decide your opinion of Peyton. I hate Tennesse as much as the next guy, but I don't hate Preyton Manning for something he had no part in dragging out for all these years (except just simply not being good enough to actually win it, but I'm okay with that).

im sure he's grown up by now, but he was sort of an arrogant dick in college. i lived in knoxville during his years and that city treated him like a god and he milked it. so glad eli was smart enough to not go to UT.
