Archie Manning goes lawnmower parent again

Archie Manning doubts Luck, Peyton want to be teammates

Archie Manning was asked on FOXSports radio Tuesday if Indianapolis should draft Stanford QB Andrew Luck with the top pick next spring.

“I don’t think it’d necessarily be great for either one,” he said regarding Peyton and Luck. “I think Andrew’s the type of mature player ... he can walk right in (and play).”...“Peyton’s always tried to help Andrew and kind of be a friend. (But) I doubt if either one of them want to play on the same team.”

Okay, so let's see if I've got this right:

  1. Archie Manning is Peyton's father.
  2. Archie talks to Oliver Luck frequently.
  3. Archie suddenly appears on a radio show to tell everyone he doubts Manning and Luck want to play together.

You get the hint, Bill Polian?  Or does Archie Manning have to "smooth" things over for you a little more?

UPDATE: Archie went on the Dan Patrick show a few hours ago and tried to backpedal, saying he wasn't a GM, but a "daddy."  That's the point, Lawnmower Man.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
