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.

    • lol I wonder where he thinks Mariotta lands in the QB rankings
    • Agree about the lateral runs. There was a couple times when we just needed short yardage - clearly best going straight down the middle especially with an O-line like ours. Panthers did the same the other night and that cost them big time.   As for Brissett, so far I am pleasantly surprised with him. I thought he would struggle more than he has, not that he has been amazing or anything but he is doing an okay job so far. Hopefully he keeps getting better with more games under his belt.
    • That’s normally how it goes for kickers at the end.  They just lose it.
    • That's three bad games in a row.  I'm not sure what's going on.  Imo, you don't fall so fast.  It's not like he's been losing distance over the years.  He just seemed to fall off a cliff.  
    • This is such a ridiculous post, lol   Allie Cox is nowhere near the receiving threat the Ebron is. Dude hurdled someone in the open field today...dude is a top option in this offense only after Hilton. He may have a bit of an outspoken personality but that has not clashed with the locker room nor his on field performance so it's a very irrelevant point.      Anyways, I'd have to go with Geathers. He makes too many mistakes and is injury prone.
