I can see Archie Sr getting chased down the street by Melissa Etheridge with a turkey baster.
Someone should do an edit of him scrambling around in the old days but with the defense being women trying to steal his precious seed.

Definitely not a repeat, Archie never had time to throw that much in the old Aints days.

The next great Manning in the NFL?

It's just as well, since he'll be selling women's shoes by the end of the decade.

Hopefully the Bears can suck bad enough to get the #1 pick the year he declares for the draft.

/not quite sold on Fields right now

High school football factories ftw I guess.

I for one hope that the Saints do not even win a single game the year before Arch gets drafted

no.

I am starting to notice a trend of current pro athletes in every sport having parents who were in pro sports.

It is almost as if having access to a network of trainers, schools, programs and other resources helps in being good at something.

Not saying sons of hall of fame players are also going to be hall of fame players, but seems to be a trend in hall of fame players still making it to the pros.

Being 6'5" helps in most sports, but if your in BFE playing against 5"11 opponents, it will be hard to improve. Being 6'5" and able to play against 6"4-7"0 while having coaching and exposure will be a huge advantage.

Anticipate the same thing in about a decade from female sports.

How is this guy still committed to UT? I'm not complaining (UT fan here), I'm just curious as to why.

I read somewhere that if his last name weren't Manning, he would actually just be a four-star recruit.

I read that if his last name was Brady, he'd win more than 2* Super Bowls each...
