    I still think it was more about trying to get ECry into NY.

    Where the advertising cash is much more lucrative than San Diego.

    Cause Eli Manning's echo drive is all that...

    It also speaks volumes about the various Manning brothers. Peyton reportedly wanted to go to a sh_tty Indy team, even saying something to the effect of "if you don't draft me I'm going to kick your as_ for the next 15 years." Meanwhile, little ECry doesn't want top play in SD, and has to get his daddy involved. Biggest punk as_ p_ssy in league history.

    How long until Archie has a press conference to say that Eli shouldnt be sacked so much and the NFl has to change their rules for him?

    'Archie predicted correctly', I think you mean.
    Good luck with the what-ifs though.

    I guarantee you that winning was part of the equation.
    Archie didn't want his kids to repeat his career.

    Not sure if he's a bigger pussy than Elway, but he's right there with him.

    He out pussies Elway by a long shot. Much as I always disliked Elway, at least Elway was also drafted by the Yankees and had a real alternative to playing for the Colts. ECry just traded off of the family name and his brother's success. AND he had to get his daddy involved, which was the biggest pussy move of all.

    Then why didn't Archie pull the same sh_t when Peyton was drafted by the 3-13 Colts?

    Good point with the Daddy thing. I think that might give Eli the edge.
    The Yankees were just a convenient excuse for Elway--he was always about football.

    Possibly cause he knew Peyton was a helluva lot better.

    Let's not forget this explanation:

    You buy that? It sounds to me like Archie was hitting the moonshine down in the holler...

    I know for sure that Archie didn't like the Chargers org. But yeah I'm pretty sure he was winding them up with that one.
