Manning: Glad Super Bowl focus on another family
NEW ORLEANS - Archie Manning, patriarch of the NFL's best-known quarterbacking clan, says he's glad the Super Bowl focus is on another family this week.
Manning has practically been a fixture at the big game in recent years. Sons Peyton and Eli Manning have won three of the last six Super Bowls. The New Orleans Saints, the hometown team Manning toiled for through hard times, won a fourth during that stretch.
This week, the Harbaugh family is drawing a lot of attention as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to meet the Baltimore Ravens. Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49ers and brother John coaches the Ravens.
Manning says there is one benefit of not having his sons in the Super Bowl.
"I'm out of the ticket and hotel business this year," he says, "and glad of it."
