    is inspiring and a testament of being a good dad. I know this isn't anything to do with UF sports but what a great great story. There's a lot I didn't know about the Mannings but have great respect especially for Archie. Hope ya'll get a chance to watch this I know it will inspire you as a dad if you're a parent.

    PM was/is a great qb but still couldn't beat the Gators. But as for the entire Manning family, have a great deal of respect and admiration.

    I watched it. Definitely a must watch for any sports fan. Great documentary. The Manning's are pure class.

    I was flipping around and was going to watch just a bit, ended up watching the whole thing. Archie's story is a very good one and they way he handled his boys, as a DAD, was as it should be. I don't understand why we can't put aside football to appreciate someone's life and how they raised their family. It was very good.

    Did they cover Peyton's teabagging incident?

    Pretty much exactly what I did. Sat down and started watching, got hooked quickly. It really is a great documentary.

    In one of the scenes Peyton had on a UVA sweatshirt and young Eli was wearing a Florida Gator hat.
    Also, in the beginning they asked the kids what their favorite NFL teams were. Cooper said San Diego Chargers. Little 5 year old Peyton said Wes Chandler was his favorite team.

    Always been a fan of the Mannings, although Archie was before my time. How anyone could dislike them is beyond me.

    Great show. All dads should watch. An amazing family. Wish one had been a Gator, but have a lot of respect for all of them.

    Thanks for being one of those classless fans similar to those at Ole Miss.

    Archie was playing when I was fairly young and really starting to get into college football. Once when Ole Miss played LSU on a Saturday night in BR and the game was shown on tv(back when maybe 1 or 2 games total would be on tv), I 'seem' to recall it was the game when Archie played with his non-throwing arm in a cast in a losing cause, but gained a lot of respect for that Ole Miss QB who never quit. Always seem to find a way to complete his passes and scrambling all over the place. Made me appreciate him a lot even though I was young at the time.

    Then hearing about Peyton when he was at UT, ordering a huge load of pizzas(with his own money) and handed out slices to students waiting in line for tickets to some upcoming ballgame. While UF may have owned him during his time at Tennessee--he always seemed to show class more than a lot of others did. I was always glad we beat UT, but respected Peyton quite a bit during those days. All the 'happy feet' comments made by so many opposing fans--Gators included--sure proved pointless when he ended up with the career he had. And still having. The whole family seems pretty much upstanding. I wish I could have seen the show.

    Just got done watching it myself. It was a great documentary.

    Even if you think you are sick of the Mannings, just do yourself a favor and watch it.

    Another good one was when a reporter asked a young (toddler) Cooper who his favorite NFL players was he said "Roger Staubach" while his dad was holding him in his arms.

    I guarantee it will be on again later tonight. Just look in your guide on ESPN/ESPN2, etc later tonight and in primetime/late night for the next several nights. I bet you will find a rerun that you can record.

    I always feel sorry for the third brother, the way they always mention him "there's another brother and he's....doing good"
