SALISBURY, N.C. -- "Memorial Stadium in Baltimore? Oh yeah, I remember it well," said the man. Then he amended his statement: "Actually, I missed some of it [the game], but I saw it the next day on the film."Here's the story the legend from Ole Miss and the New Orleans Saints, Archie Manning, related: "Only got to play there once, but I was looking forward to it and playing in all the places where the baseball teams played, too -- Baltimore, Detroit, Cleveland.[At every opportunity before the NFL draft, major-league baseball teams drafted Archie in hopes he would play their game.

There's something about Archie Manning's easygoing drawl that makes you think nothing gets him too bothered. But don't be fooled. He's as antsy as you might expect the father of two NFL quarterbacks to be at this time of year, especially with Peyton and Eli Manning heading into the biggest games of the season. Archie and his wife, Olivia, will be in Indianapolis on Sunday to watch Peyton and the Colts in a do-or-die game against the Jaguars. In their direct line of vision will be a TV tuned to the Giants game at the same time, with Eli facing the Eagles for first place in the NFC East.

ANDERSON, Ind. -- There were enough warning signs to scare off less secure quarterbacks than Peyton Manning. There was reason to wonder whether coming to Indianapolis to revive the comatose Colts was a good idea at any price.All you had to do was listen to the echoes of the past.There was the club's wretched history of taking quarterbacks high in the draft, starting with Art Schlichter in 1982. The John Elway saga followed a year later, and in 1990, the Colts tried again with Jeff George.

Peyton Manning doesn't like to waste time. So, for instance, when the Indianapolis quarterback runs on the treadmill, he doesn't just chug along like everyone else. He practices the two-minute drill while jogging, gesturing and calling out plays as he racks up the miles. "The first time I saw that I was like, 'What is he doing?' " Colts guard Ryan Lilja said. "I'd never seen that before, but then I realized it makes perfect sense. This guy is a next-level thinker." For one NFL team -- either Manning's Colts or the New Orleans Saints -- the next level is just four quarters away.

Bill Parcells, the coach, may have trouble winning for Bill Parcells, the general manager.That's because Parcells didn't come off as a shrewd operator in the Peyton Manning affair, the first major situation he faced since joining the New York Jets.When Manning's father, Archie, recently called Parcells, they played a version of don't ask-don't tell. Manning was too polite to ask Parcells if he would draft his son and keep him."There was an indication they really liked Peyton, and he seemed certain that Peyton would be the first pick, but I wasn't inclined to ask him in February if he was definitely going to take Peyton," Archie Manning said.

The first time Peyton Manning hunkered into an NFL huddle, called an NFL play, scanned the field and fired a pass to an NFL receiver, didn't come as the No. 1 overall pick of the Indianapolis Colts. It came with the New Orleans Saints. And the future four-time NFL Most Valuable Player was in high school, more than a decade before he would lead the Colts to this year's Super Bowl against the Saints. He grew up in New Orleans, and his father, Archie Manning, was a former star quarterback for the Saints who later was always around the team because he was their radio color analyst.

MIAMI -- Peyton Manning was basking in the sun at Pro Player Stadium, where he'll conclude his college football career tomorrow, when the question caught him by surprise. Did he take any solace in the fact that, more often than not, the Heisman Trophy has become an albatross for the NFL aspirations of quarterbacks?"I guess so, maybe," Manning said with a grin, before turning dead serious. "Look, I've had a fairly good career, but after it's over, it's over. You move on."The only reason I ever wanted to win [the Heisman]

It was not like Archie and Olivia Manning set out to create a quarterbacking dynasty 30 years ago when they began to raise a family in New Orleans. There was no master plan to become football's first family, no diabolical scheme to dominate the NFL draft, no grand design to change the concept of offense as we know it. It just happened. Plain old hard work meshed with good athletic genes, pedigree dovetailed with opportunity and there you have it. Peyton Manning, 28, a co-Most Valuable Player with the Indianapolis Colts a year ago, stands poised to shatter the league's single-season record for touchdown passes, perhaps as early as today.

Inundated by courtroom drama and backroom theatrics, the NFL's 69th college draft lurches forward - ready or not - at noon today. Maurice Clarett is out, Eli Manning is in but hedging, and the San Diego Chargers are tentatively on the clock. What happens from there could make this one of the more entertaining drafts in recent history. There are wide receivers galore, rumored trades up and down the first round, and, of course, reputations waiting to be made. It all starts with San Diego.
