Saints Afraid Archie Manning Might Share Inside Info With Peyton Manning
|January 28, 2010|
MIAMI--With Super Bowl XLIV just 10 days away, the New Orleans Saints are concerned that former quarterback Archie Manning, father of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, may share some inside information about the Saints’ schemes and tendencies with his son. Manning Sr. played with the Saints from 1971-1982. “Anytime you have a former player out there cozying up to members of the opposing team, there’s a concern,” said Saints coach Sean Payton. “Archie was on the inside with the team so he can provide information you can’t get from watching game film. The only consolation for us is that he played here about 35 years ago and pretty much everything has changed and many of the coaches and players are probably dead by now. But still, as an NFL coach, it’s my job to be as paranoid as possible.” Payton said he is planning to overhaul the entire playbook and re-design the offense just to be safe.
