You Da Manning

This is an article from the Dec. 13, 2004 issue Original Layout

Eli's Coming
As Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has another stellar season, his little brother, Eli, is struggling as a rookie signal-caller for the Giants. If their college careers are any indication, Eli's time will come. At Ole Miss, Eli had 118 touchdowns (passing and rushing), the second most in SEC history and 17 more than his brother had at Tennessee. Who is the one man with more SEC touchdowns than Eli?

a. Tim Couch c. Pat Sullivan

b. Jared Lorenzen d. Danny Wuerffel

Real Studs
The Mannings' dad, Archie, ended his NFL career with the Vikings in 1984. Another player on that team has two sons who are now NFL quarterbacks. Who is he?

Call to Order
Archie Manning, the second pick in the 1971 NFL draft, is the only first-rounder to have a son taken higher than he was. (Both Eli and Peyton were No. 1 overall picks.) Rank these other first-round father-son combos by their combined draft positions.

a. Ed and Brad Budde

b. Billy Cannon Sr. and Jr.

c. Steve and Keith DeLong

d. Dub and Bert Jones


ELI'S COMING: d. Florida's Danny Wuerffel was responsible for an SEC-record 122 touchdowns.

REAL STUDS: Tight end Don Hasselbeck is the father of quarterbacks Matt (Seahawks) and Tim (Redskins).

CALL TO ORDER: d. Jones (4: Dub, No. 2 in 1946; Bert, No. 2 in 1973); a. Budde (15: Ed, No. 4 in 1963; Brad, No. 11 in 1980); b. Cannon (26: Billy Sr., No. 1 in 1960; Billy Jr., No. 25 in 1984); c. DeLong (34: Steve, No. 6 in 1965; Keith, No. 28 in 1989)
