    Just saw a clip of that E:60 special they're gonna show on the Manning family. Wow, I had no idea that was why Cooper didn't play ball, I thought the guy just didn't like football or something. His situation is truly unreal.

    I won't spoil anything for those that don't know, but there is a very tragic reason as to why the oldest Manning brother doesn't play football.

    Don't feel too sorry for him. He's a very successful businessman. I saw him on some show a few years ago & he has no regrets.

    Still, with his Dad and both brothers being famous for being good NFL QB's, it must be tough for him to understand that sometimes. I think it would be for most guys.

    Well I don't know him personally but in the interview I saw he was fine with it. Life dealt him that set of cards & he is very successful in his own business.

    I'm sure it helps that they are a very close family. His brothers really do look up to him.

    I like that family. Archie & his wife raised their kids right.

    I get your point though.

    I really like the Manning boys...really admired their pops how he took beating after beating as a Saint. Admire and respect how he raised his boys.

    I do too. Great example for young guys growing up. I like that Archie & his wife travel all over to see their boys play & whenever I see Eli or Peyton talk about the other it is always in the context of support for the other.

    Peyton is one of my favorite players.
