Sterling & Shannon Sharpe?
Merlin & Phil Olson (part of Ram's "Fearsome Foursome")?
Gene & Marvin Upshaw?
LeRoy & Dewey Selman?
Sterling and Shannon Sharpe- Shannon, no doubt is top notch, but Sterling's career was cut too short.
I think this list can be trimmed down to the Mannings, Matthews, and Barbers.
Brett Favre and his younger, lesser-known brother Morty.
I am suprised they did not have the selmon brothers. The problem was one of them played for a horrible Tampa Bay team in the 70's.
The Mathews are good... I mean, both made major contributions for extended periods of times. The Barbers are very good also. Both solid players for 10 years. The Sharpes, both GREAT players but one was cut awfully short, however the other is the greatest TE of all time statistically.
HOWEVER... that being said, the Mannings will go down as the greatest brother tandem. They're great players who have both won a ring and both have plenty of career in front of them still. Peyton will most likely own most the record book when he's done and Eli will be a HOF if he keeps up at this pace. Right now... it's a toss up, but in my opinion, it won't be close when it's all over with. Mannings win.
um the golic brothers...only because of Bob's roll in Saved by the bell- college years:yes:
I would say the Sharpe brothers followed closely by Selmon.
Change of subject, I would put the Stensrud bothers ( mid 70's) as some of the best brothers to play at ISU.
