Re: Archie hasn't been able to enjoy Saints SB win

It was fate that the Saints first super bowl appearance was against a Manning. As any other New Orleanean, I am a die hard Saints fan. I was in high school when Archie was drafted and remained loyal to him, as did many others, during his tenure with the team. Archie has been an ICON to the city and we watched as both Peyton & Eli were drafted and won Super bowls. We wondered what it would be like if either of them had won a super bowl with the Saints. Then it was our turn and when Peyton could not find the courage to congratulate the team he grew up with, I found myself no longer a Manning family fan . I now rejoice in our new ICON, Drew Brees.

The Manning family still does a lot for NO and the surrounding area, as mentioned in the article. Because of that I can't hate them. But I was disappointed when Peyton Manning didn't congratulate anyone after the game. Manning said he left the field to give the Saints they're moment but that's BS. You go congratulate the other team. Also, I think the family needs to get over it.

Sure, it was tough that night, but a new season is here and if you can't look back and be happy by now and celebrate with the city then your being a bit childish.

Re: Archie hasn't been able to enjoy Saints SB win

I don't read anything into that article. I know the family personally actually and they are stand up nice people. They are torn because in one way they are happy that the Saints, the community won a SB that they live in and have always been apart of but to be on the other side of it as well having a Manning on the losing side of that makes it tough.
I almost feel like if Peyton or Eli said 'don't draft me, I want to go to NO'. It would be a better story sure but. You couldn't have come up with a better story for a SB than this and instead of taking crap about them for what every there take is and how they feel I think is an injustice for all they have done for the Saints, the community and to all the ones who attend their camp. I been reading people bashing them and come on bashing them just isn't New Orleanian like.

Re: Archie hasn't been able to enjoy Saints SB win

This article makes me laugh out loud and at the same time, you can't help but feel sorry for the Manning family. Still, all any true Saints Fan really wants to do is beat the crap out of the NYG in the NFC Championship game this year. LOL

Sorry Archie

Re: Archie hasn't been able to enjoy Saints SB win

It's good that they are doing their part for the city and the Gulf region. I don't think any of us would expect anything less. However, Archie needs to get over the fact that his boy and his team lost. If he is happy for the team, then show it. The next season is about to start for crying out loud. How long is it going to take for him to get over it? Looks like the perfect son of the "first family" isn't so perfect after all, Archie.

P.S. I wonder if he'll be happy when the Saints win it again this year? Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Mannings!

Re: Archie hasn't been able to enjoy Saints SB win

"Olivia and I kind of got cheated out of the madness," he continued. "It's been months of madness here and we're really not part of that."

My advice to Archie: You're a New Orleans Saint. Put your Saints gear on and get the hell out of the house and enjoy this. Quit feeling sorry for Peyton. He's a big boy now. You are part of New Orleans. You are one of the reasons that make the city great. You deserve to celebrate this victory just like every other Saints fan that has been tortured for 43 years. In my opinion, you should have been on one of those floats in the victory parade. Now quit whining, get out of the house and enjoy this victory. Hell, bring Peyton with you. Deep down, he's also a Saints fan. We would like to see him get out and enjoy this too.
