Tiger: Roughing the passer

Why was Peyton Manning missing from Manning Day in Mississippi on Tuesday? He was playing golf with Tiger Woods in Florida.

Archie and Eli Manning represented the Manning family when it was honored by state legislators in Jackson. Each of them played quarterback for Ole Miss. Archie, meanwhile, apologized for Peyton's absence.

"I got a text message this morning that said, '(Woods) just birdied the first hole,"' Archie told the crowd of state senators. "About 15 minutes later I got another one that said, 'He just birdied the second hole.' I texted back that he was just lucky."
