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.

Would literally be the only reason I watch ESPN (besides a Colts game they might have)

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.

    • he stopped Hopkins last year
    • Hard fought win yesterday and it was a big divisional win, which made it even more important.   Our defense played well and limited Henry.  He had a couple of big runs, but all good RBs will have those in games...it's key to limit those and make the consistent stops to limit the good ones to 2-3 yards per carry, which we did.   Mariotta still does not impress me and I can see the Titans moving on from him after this season.  He makes bad decisions when he runs the ball and puts himself in danger.   We had some costly penalties, but were able to overcome those.  Feel so badly for Adam V. and I wonder if this was his last game.  He had the appearance of a confused and defeated man on the sideline.
    • Kickers are always weird.  It is the most mentally draining position on any team.   When you get older, it takes longer to heal, physically, intellectually, and emotionally.  I also guarantee that he is more aware and disappointed about his performance than anybody else.  I hope, and believe, he will bounce back.                      
    • we have seen him for a full season though and he looks pretty similar to 2017.  Check the numbers if you dont believe that.   JB has a lot in common with Mariota, efficient game managers that can win with strong running game and defenses but most peopled dont believe they will win a ring.  im not even mad either i hope they do well this year but keep an eye on QBs in the draft or maybe FA
    • Titans have made the playoffs once in the last 10 years.  Chargers twice i nthe past 9.  Not really "regulars."  And whatever being "better" on paper means, it's the NFL and any team can win any given day, despite how a roster is composed.     I'm not saying they're bad, good or whatever, except that "on paper," they have the same record as us and while the Titans looked good against Cleveland last week, they were unimpressive this week.  Which Titans are the real Titans?  I don't know, hence, underwhelming, at least the version we saw yesterday.  The Chargers played us closely, but they missed a ton of opportunities yesterday.  I think they had a turnover, interception maybe, when they had two TDs called back because of penalties.    I'm not trying to naysay so much as be realistic about what Jacoby is doing.  He's serviceable.  Not a guy that's your first choice to lead your franchise.  I can't even say he's top 16.  If he's not cracked that list, our going to a super bowl while he's under center just does not seem very plausible.  Not this year anyway.  And if not ever with him, then we should start looking to replace him in next year's draft.  And thus far, unless he shows me something else, particularly against top tier competition, that's the direction we're headed.
