It's good to see that Archie Manning isn't the only media-whore trying to cash in on his son's NFL stardom. Drew Brees has asked his mother not to use his image in her campaign for a Texas appellate court. Obviously the reason is their opposition of stem cell research—on his huge facial mole.
But seriously, it's nice to see that some parent has taken over the (hefty) void left by Jerome Bettis' parents. (Although you would figure that NBC is going to find a way to work them into the Football Night in America broadcast.)
The funny thing here, that the relationship between Brees and his mother deteriorated because he wouldn't hire her as his player agent coming out of Purdue. Evidentially she wanted to keep him out of San Diego and force a trade to the Giants, but Drew actually wanted to honor the NFL's drafting rules.
