NFL Bill Parcells mocks Peyton Manning’s rookie Interception record

Peyton Manning retired in 2015 as one of the most decorated quarterbacks in NFL history, but his immense talent wasn’t exactly evident during his rookie season.

Manning finished his first professional season with 26 touchdowns and an NFL-record 28 interceptions, gunslinging his way to a 3–13 record. A quick exit from the league was just as likely as a Hall of Fame career after 1998.

Former Giants, Cowboys, Patriots and Jets head coach Bill Parcells reflected on Manning’s difficult rookie year as he joined Peyton and Eli Manning on Monday Night Football. Parcells could have coached the elder Manning in New York had he declared for the 1997 NFL draft, though the missed connection looked like a potential blessing in disguise at the end of the 20th century.
