Are the Manning brothers the greatest set of brothers in sports history?

I mean Peyton is going to go down as one of the best of all time, Eli has won 2 superbowls and has a great shot at the HoF because of that. What other set if brothers have been better in the history of sport?

See most of the brothers that have been listed so far is pretty much all one guy and the other brother was ok. Both of the Mannings are really good, obviously Peyton is better but Eli is still a great QB

The Mathews clan will have a few hall of famers in this current crop.

I full expect to see an entire front seven comprised of nothing but Mathews brothers and cousins in the next 20 years or so.

the DiMaggio brothers in MLB are a little better IMO b/c a third bro made it to the show.

Vince DiMaggio

.249 BA
959 hits
209 doubles
24 triples
125 home runs
491 runs
584 RBI
79 stolen bases
2X All Star


Dom DiMaggio


.298 BA
1680 hits
308 doubles
57 triples
87 home runs
1,046 runs
618 RBI
100 stolen bases
7x All-Star
27 game hitting streak
Boston Red Sox HOF
missed 3 years due to WW2


and of course

Joe DiMaggio

.325 BA
2,214 hits
389 doubles
131 triples
361 home runs
1,390 runs
1,537 RBI
30 stolen bases
13x All Star
3x AL MVP
9x World Series champion
56 game hitting streak
Yankee HOF and #5 jersey retired
MLB HOF
missed 3 years due to WW2



Dom probably would have had the resume to make it to the MLB HOF had WW2 not happened.
