Miami has biggest presence in NFL playoffs

This maybe so, but the most important player on the field during the playoffs is, Eli Manning, and he is an Ole Miss alumnus. Actually, the Rebels have contributed a number of great quarterbacks to professional football including Charlie Conerly (Giants), Archie Manning (New Orleans), Kent Austin (Saskatchewan Roughriders), John Fourcade (British Columbia Lions), Eagle Day (Calgary Stampeders), Bobby Franklin (Cleveland Browns), and Jake Gibbs, who was a pretty good catcher for the New York Yankees. Have I forgotten anyone?
