Following this, he moves the camera lower to a picture of himself and his brother and fellow NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and says, “Me and Peyton.”

Next, he lowers the camera and we see the New York Giant No.10 standing alongside 1999’s 2nd overall pick Donovan McNabb. Here, Manning focused on another image with quarterback Kurt Warner. He claimed MVP at Super Bowl XXXIV with the St.Louis Rams and played as Manning’s teammate in 2004. 

The former QB’s wall is even adorned with images of his college team. “Chris Spencer, center at Ole Miss… always a special bond there,” said Manning who won the 2003 Cotton Bowl Classic with Spencer.

Next, Manning moves onto a sketch/collage of multiple quarterbacks at his alma mater. “There were some great quarterbacks that were up there at Ole Miss at the time. Charlie Conerly in there No.42.” Conerly went on to play for ‘The Giants’ for 14 seasons.

Further, Manning takes followers quickly through images featuring, Coach Gilbride and his father Archie Manning.  Next, Manning focuses on a picture of himself and former Giants No.14 Y.A.Tittle. 

The former Giant shows followers another image of his father and brother who seem to be prominent features on his photo wall of memories. 

“President Bush doing the coin toss,” said Manning as he moved to a portrait showing the same at a Giants vs Cowboys game. Manning continues on his tour and shows us images of long time coach at New York Giants Tony Coughlin “taking a little break.”

Furthermore, he treats fans to a glimpse of the man who considers him as a nemesis. Both of the younger Manning’s Super Bowl wins came over Tom Brady’s New England Patriots. He says, “Brady” and moves on to pictures of him with his wife on draft day as well as one of his 4 Pro Bowl appearances.
