Here's a brain twister....
 
Archie Manning drafted by the Saints. Has a son named Peyton. Mora coaches the Saints. Peyton hangs out with the team, while he's in High School, and even goes to training camp with the team, a couple of years.
Mora leaves the Saints, goes to the Colts. Drafts a QB....... Peyton Manning. Convinces Bill Polian, to take Manning. Mora fired by the Colts, and Peyton takes the Colts to their second superbowl appearance versus.... the Saints....

Wow. Just think, had Mora not coached the Saints, and not met Peyton, maybe the Colts don't draft him. There is ALOT connecting these two teams. Seriously.

I like Mora. I will never forget what he did for this franchise, in the late eighties. Now, what I didn't like, was his, "get and early lead, and then let the defense win the game" attitude. In every play off game, he ever coached, he always played "not to lose", not "to win". Great regular season coach, but NOT a post season coach.

He did the same thing in Indy.

...oh you GOT to be kidding me...

The Colts drafted Peyton because they finished the 1997 season 3-13, good enough to get them the 1st pick in the 1998 draft, and at QB, they started a very ineffective 34 year old Jim Harbaugh who went 2-9, and finished the season with Paul Justin and Kelley Holocomb who combined went 1-4. Peyton was the consensus best QB in that draft, even if ESPN made its best effort to create a controversy between Manning and Leaf.

That's why the Colts drafted Peyton. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with Mora coaching the Saints and meeting Peyton before he even attended Tennessee.
