Peyton Manning is one of the best quarterbacks to ever live. And while he might not have been able to predict that at the ripe age of 3 years old, he seemed to know one thing for sure: He'd make it to the NFL.

In this ancient YouTube clip of toddler Peyton, he calls out his dad, Archie Manning as his favorite player before predicting his own career future.

Thirty-six years later, Manning will go down as one of the best to ever do it -- far exceeding anything Archie Manning even accomplished over his 13 NFL seasons.

His two championships tie younger brother Eli for the family lead -- though the Giants shotcaller came away with a pair of Super Bowl MVPs to go along with his titles. Still, Peyton's career-long dominance and superiority is inarguable. Even if he never takes another NFL snap again.
