Peyton Manning on MNF

Recommended Posts

Not going to happen. Peyton is going to be a front office guy at some point here in the near future, in my opinion.

It may not but if they give him a lot of money and he wants to do it out of boredom who knows? I did call it, as in I knew MNF would reach out to him.

If he does, then I'll certainly watch.  If he doesn't, then it will be interesting to see who they get, because it was painful to watch/listen this past season.

ESPN talked to Peyton last year about the gig when Gruden left so this isn't anything new. Peyton is probably making more yearly from his business investments/royalties than what ESPN would offer him to do MNF anyway.

They paid Gruden 6.5 million a year.   They would pay Peyton more.

And he will still make money from his business investments/royalties if he takes the job. Apples and oranges. He would be great and it would boost their ratings. I wouldn't be shocked if they paid him $10m/yr. He'd be worth every penny.

It's called "passive" money. He really doesn't have to "work" nor travel like he would for the ESPN gig to make the money. Ultimately my point was I doubt it's about the money for him, it's about whether he actually wants to do it, and from what I understand it's a no.

Peyton Manning would never show it, but if I were in his place I'd be annoyed with ESPN. They just don't give up; he already told them "no", but they keep bugging him. Peyton would help their ratings (which must be low); why else would they be so desperate?

If Peyton does change his mind, it would probably be on his terms. It sounds like ESPN is begging, so they'd give in to almost anything he  would request.

You know Peyton would prepare/film study for each at least as much or more than Tony Romo does each week (quite astronomical). These two would be incredible;e assets for the NFL.

ESPN needs Manning much more than he needs them.

Just because some think he would be great doing it does not make it so.

Personally I would like to hear and see Manning do MNF but I don't think he is interested. If he should then I would turn the sound on. As it stands now I watch but without the sound.

If I’m Peyton, my first demand is no Booger and a new play by play man.

 

He probably brings Reggie and Sorgi along with him, that would be nice!!! :) 

 

Sorgi breaks things down pretty good, IMO!!!

I think it would be a huge draw.  I can see why ESPN wants this. I'd watch

My understanding is that since he retired he's been at the top of every broadcasting company's wish list for a color guy.

 

He will probably command a huge salary.

 

The only thing he will have to worry about is shortening his analysis of plays.  Because it seems like Peyton can probably talk for about 5 minutes about what's going on in each individual play.

He would suck at it. I don't want someone breaking down the game as if he is talking to the staff and players.  Keep the game on the field and entertainment in the broadcast booth. Quoting from the film "Network", "Because you're on TV *."  Bring back someone like Don Meredith.

I don't know how good he would be but I would listen just to hear him occasionally punk Eli or something.  It would be entertaining.

I laughed when Tony Kornheiser sat next to Joe Theisman onMNF. Kornheiser looked like an 80 pound 11 year old kid compared to Theisman.

I don't see it happening. Why would he spent 24 weekends away from his family and watching Eli, Tennessee, Indy and Denver around the country all season as he does now? 

 

Would PM be as good as Romo or better? Yes, probably. But, he doesn't need the pressure of needing to live up to that.

yeah he sounds a lot like romo to me.  he was doing it first so i guess romo reminds me of him

 

sorgi is a huge homer though, and can be pretty biased.  he works for the team too though, or at least he did i have not listened in a while

That's kind of funny. It makes me think that Bob Lamey would have been fun to listen and see with his style of homerism. Yes he was a homer but an honest homer.

    • Well he's 3rd.  You are forgetting Johnny U
    • I know off topic but imagine having a QB like Dan Marino for 17 years and win 0 SB's. Marino is a top 10 QB of all-time by any measure. Like Jim Kelly (who IMO is top 20 of all-time) with the Bills 4 straight SB's but no wins. Barry Sanders with the Lions too, just a waste of the best talents we have seen. Peyton at least got us to the promise land once. So yeah it could be worse.   Brady won a lot of SB's but he had the best coach ever which gave him an advantage. He will do well in Tampa but they aren't winning no SB. I see playoffs for them but no SB.   Back on topic - Rivers should throw early, get us a lead and let the O.Line devastate teams in the 2nd half.
    • What is next year's class shaping up like for pass rushers. I know with COVID things are still up in the air as to who may declare for the draft, but just wanted to get other takes on this. Nothing is certain longterm at DE for Indy right now. Hoping that Turay can stay healthy, and Banogu can show big progress this season. Having another dominant player on the DL to go along with Bucker would go a long way to making this defense reminiscence of San Fran's, when they had Buckner and Bosa.    A guy I am starting to like is DE Patrick Jones from Pittsburgh. He is long, fast, and athletic and could be a longterm answer at DE for Indy. If Xavier Thomas from Clemson can be coached up I like him as well. He just seems more raw. 
    • They actually announced a few days ago that you can work people out like regular seasons now ...  
    • Yeah I think like that too, then I think what Dolphins fans think when they had freakin Dan Marino and won 0. That makes me feel ok
