Arch Manning's college decision sent NFL fans into a tizzy earlier this week after he announced that he would be joining the University of Texas. Many saw the announcement as another stop on the road to the young player's arrival in the NFL. The youngster is the son of Cooper Manning, and his uncles were both top-tier quarterbacks in the NFL.

Both Eli and Peyton Manning won multiple Super Bowls, but the latter won the internet earlier this week. A famous Saturday Night Live clip of Manning made the rounds around social media. In the clip, the quarterback acted as an overly competitive coach/quarterback for his team.

Throughout the roughly 44-second video, the quarterback crudely attempted to whip his teammates into shape. The funny part was that his teammates were elementary school kids.

The NFL quarterback first called out a blitz from the shotgun. He took the snap and called for the kids to get open. One second later, he threw the ball to a receiver, whose back was turned. The ball hit him in the back and he tumbled over, prompting a round of laughter from the audience.

Manning called out:

"Get your head out of your a**! You suck."

The quarterback called for a huddle, but excluded one kid and pointed him away, saying:

"I can't even look at you."

He then demanded that the kid sit in the toilet for 20 minutes. The video then cut to the next play where the quarterback took a snap in the shotgun once again. He threw the ball into the mid-section of another kid, who fell to the ground in pain.

The kid in the Porta Potty cracked the door open and the quarterback demanded he shut it once again. The video then cut to the next throw, which hit a kid in the back of the head, prompting another round of laughter.

Lastly, it showed him on one knee talking to one of the kids:

"I throw, you catch, it's not that hard, okay? Alright, get the f*** out of here."

Peyton Manning's NFL career

Manning was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in 1998. Between 1998-2010, he remained with the franchise, delivering a Super Bowl and lighting up scoreboards on Sundays. In his career with the Colts, he only had two seasons in which he was under .500.


In 2011, he suffered a massive neck injury that sidelined him for the entire season. With the Colts noting his age and the severity of the injury, they ultimately decided to hand the quarterback role to Andrew Luck. Meanwhile, Manning went to the Denver Broncos for a four-year stint.

There, he set the record for passing touchdowns in a season with 55. In his second campaign with the team, he took them to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for the Broncos, they were beaten 43-8 by the Seattle Seahawks. But this was not the end of the legendary quarterback.

He took the Broncos to the Super Bowl in the 2015-16 season. At Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10. With his second Super Bowl ring in hand, Manning retired.

The former quarterback has stayed in touch with the NFL. He has appeared in many advertisements, commentated on games and was a co-host on Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli.

He was seen with newly acquired Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason, watching game tape and helping him settle in. The dream of another Super Bowl victory is very much alive in Denver, but whether that will come to pass remains to be seen.
