Peyton Manning will officially be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Sunday.
The legendary NFL quarterback is one of seven men being inducted from the 2021 class in Canton, Ohio this weekend.
Manning is undoubtedly one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. He set numerous passing records throughout his career and won two Super Bowls – one with the Indianapolis Colts and one with the Denver Broncos.
Another Manning could be heading to the Hall of Fame in a couple of years. Eli Manning, who also won two Super Bowls, is considered to be a Hall of Fame contender.
Eli Manning had a brutally honest admission on his brother’s induction.

“Yo, Peyt,” Eli began. “I know we got the Hall of Fame coming up this weekend and I’m super excited to be there to celebrate this great honor with you. I am excited for your speech. And I’ve been thinking about it and if the fact that I had to go outside in New Orleans from the ages of 10 to 14, in the summer, on our front street, wearing a sweatshirt filled with pillows — up and down my sleeves and my chest — so I could catch passes from you and wouldn’t come in totally bruised and in pain for days after, all those times… If that is not mentioned in your speech and I am not personally thanked for that, I’m going to be a little disappointed.
“I mean, you threw 539 touchdowns. I think if I didn’t do that all those times, you don’t throw over 535 touchdowns. I mean, that’s how important that was to you.”
Well said, Eli.
