Mannings go about business amid Saints mania

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Mannings are together again for their football camp in south Louisiana, where former Saints quarterback Archie Manning says life has been a bit awkward since his old team defeated his son Peyton's Colts in the Super Bowl.

Archie says the family is happy for New Orleans, but they've been unable to share in the months of celebrations since the Saints' first title.

While Peyton and brother Eli aren't partying with the Who-Dats, they are still trying to help the area where they grew up. The two QBs recently filmed a public service announcement to promote restoration of the oil-marred Gulf of Mexico.

The Manning Passing Academy is in its 15th year at Nicholls State in Thibodaux, about 60 miles southwest of New Orleans.
