Earlier this week I heard a radio interview with Archie Manning (father of Eli and Peyton) and the only thing that really struck with me was an interesting observation of his younger son Eli. When asked how he thought Eli would do in this Big Game, Archie said he thought Eli would play well and that he had always been a cool customer. Even as a teenager Eli never seemed to be phased by anything.
After Eli’s performance in today’s Super Bowl I would have to say that Archie knows his son very well indeed. Eli looked like a cool cucumber out that field today.
