PATER FAMILIAS: Former NFLer Archie Manning appears with his sons Peyton and Eli in DirecTV’s recent “Football On Your Phone” TV spot and noted it is the latest installment of a "15-year relationship our family has had with DirecTV.” Manning said of his NFL QB sons, "I never thought about them being big pitch men. I don’t think that’s a goal to have. I think if you’ll look at their history, the associations they have and the partnerships, corporate partners they have, it’s quality. And also, it speaks well -- I’ve always thought -- if you’re going to have a relationship like that, you hope it’s not just a quick one; that it’s something that’s meaningful, you’re really part of something within the company" (THE DAILY).
