Oh, I do understand. That's my point...Eli had "leverage" because his brother was Payton and his father was Archie, the royal family of football, and his father was heavily involved in his career and he was of course very tradeable in the draft. He was good coming out of college, but I think his name and the media type surrounding his entry into the NFL gave him that advantage over other guys who were just happy and humble enough to be in the draft. But it all worked out in the end, each player ended up exactly where they should be.

I don't like any of the Mannings. Archie manipulated the draft so that his kid wouldn't come to SD (poor poor Peyton)...what about all the other players who get picked for teams they'd rather not play for, there's plenty of them. I lost all respect for any of the Mannings.
You kidding any team that does have a dome in coming years is lilely a tem that does have the cash to be at the top often and players do not want to play for.Besides that they will nevber see a suoer bowl because no one wants to see a snow bowl like games seen at chicago or green bay.
