The Manning body has evolved.
Earlier this week, a photo surfaced of new Texas quarterback Arch Manning alongside three of his fellow quarterbacks flexing in the locker room.
This immediately caught the attention of fans, who wasted no time turning it into a meme.
One observation made by fans was the difference in appearance between Manning and his teammate Ewers.
Fans then took it a step further by comparing Arch Manning’s muscular physique to his uncle Peyton and Eli Manning’s less toned bodies in separate beach pictures.
Eli, however, took the joke in good humor and responded on Twitter, saying, “They just got me at a bad angle!”

Arch Manning’s impressive physique became a topic of discussion on social media, particularly in contrast to his uncles’ builds.
Despite the hype surrounding Manning’s arrival, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed in April that Ewers is expected to be the starting quarterback for the 2023 season.
Meanwhile, as the Longhorns prepare for their season opener against Rice on September 2nd, fans can look forward to the third season of ESPN’s popular ManningCast.
