Stephen Colbert: Bradley Manning the least athletic Manning brother

In last night's episode of The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert dedicated a segment to accused WikiLeaker Bradley Manning. Naturally, Colbert took an opportunity to make a comparison to Peyton and Eli.

Of course, there actually is a "least athletic Manning brother." But Cooper Manning was an all-state high school player before spinal stenosis derailed his sports career. 

No word on if Bradley Manning is related to the Mannings, or if Cooper has been involved in any top-level espionage.
