As promised Smallthoughtsinasportsworld on Tuesday will feature old school sports from the NFL, NBA. and MLB as well as Boxing. In light of Sundays’s matchup of the Denver Broncos vs the New York Giants or otherwise know as the Manning Bowl, we thought our first foray on old school Tuesday would be who else, Peyton and Eli’s father …Archie Manning. Listed below are Archie Manning’s career stats and highlights. The fact that he he was able to accomphish much of his stats on some very God awful New Orleans Saints teams was amazing and only makes you wonder what could Archie Manning could have accomplished if he had played on the Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins or even the Baltimore Colts all who were powerhouse teams of that time and era in the NFL.
Unfortunately the youtube video that was going to be included in this entry was compromised. Please stay tuned for any possible update that will be included in this entry.
