NFL prepares for a third Manning

With Eli expected to be top pick, family's impact grows
COMMENTARY
By Paul Attner

Let's do it," says Peyton Manning to his brother Eli.

Eli nods.

They approach each other grimly. "OK," says Peyton. "Turn around."

Eli obeys. They stand back to back.

"So who's taller?" Peyton asks. Eli stands on his toes. "Now, don't you do that," says Peyton.

Eli stops. They settle down. It's 6-5 Peyton by half an inch. No question.

"See, I knew I still have you," says the older brother, triumph in his voice.

Some things in the pecking order of brothers never change, even if you are Peyton Manning, maybe the best player in the NFL, and Eli Manning, who should be the No. 1 choice in April's draft. Eli may be the better basketball player and may be able to fling a Nerf Vortex football 15 yards farther. ("I destroyed him," says Eli proudly). But he's still younger and smaller.
