    Anybody remember the documentary from about 10 years ago about "superstar" Peyton Manning and "nobody" Roosevelt "Tadpole" Blackmon making their way into the NFL? I live in Japan and after the taped replay of some of the NFL games they'll play some old stuff from NFL films. Usually football follies or something like that. This however was interesting. Tadpole was drafted by the Pack in the 4th round out of Morris Brown. In their first preseason game they played the Chiefs in the Tokyo Dome. Tadpole struggled early which led Leroy Butler to verbally work him over. Later he played better and Leroy pumped him up a bit. Interesting to see the 1996 (I think) team in action again. I think Blackmon only lasted one year with the Pack.
