The Manning family: quarterback elites

There’s a lot to be said for good genes.

The Mannings now have three Super Bowl honors.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning won his second award Sunday night after leading his team to a 21-17 victory against the New England Patriots.

It was a replay of 2008, when he captured MVP honors after another fourth-quarter drive against the Patriots.

Brother Peyton had captured the title the year before as quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts.

Their father, Archie Manning, a quarterback known for his speed, played for the New Orleans Saints, the Houston Oilers and the Minnesota Vikings, but never won the Super Bowl title.

Cooper Manning, brother of Eli and Peyton, played football at Ole Miss before his career was cut short by neck problems. He now works for Weil Howard, an energy investment firm.
