    Super Bowl MVP, Indianapolis Colts QB, Peyton Manning talking about his father, Archie, former QB for the New Orleans Saints

    "He has never tried to relive his sports career through his kids," Manning said. "I think unfortunately there's a lot of parents who do that today. And those are usually the ones who are beating up umpires and yelling at coaches during the games. My parents came to all of our games when we were kids and they sat in the top row and didn't say a word. My dad probably knew more than any junior high coach I ever had but he never said anything to them. I think the way my parents raised us and handled us is why I still have such a passion for the game. I truly love the game. I think that makes a big difference. You've got to love it. I think you hear some parents push their kids too much and the game's not fun anymore."
