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.

    • I agree with u.  People on this forum just look at stats.  I have watched the film and he is poor in coverage and gets blown up in running plays.  I think he is to light.  I also think Leonard believes his own hype and   is playing for stats.  Call me crazy.....but would not b surprised if we have 2 lbs ready to take advantage of their opportunities.

    • NFL Game Day in Indianapolis is finally here Colts Nation!    Our 2019 Indianapolis Colts are back in Downtown Indianapolis as they host the Atlanta Falcons in the first of four NFC South interdivisional opponents the Colts will play during the 2019 NFL Regular Season. Atlanta is playing a regular season game for the first time in Indianapolis in eight years, and Sunday afternoon's game is the 17th all-time meeting between the teams.   After two games the Colts are #2 in the NFL in Rushing Offense, and yards, led by  Marlon Mack with his 225 yards.   Also an interesting battle of quarterbacks, with the Colts Jacoby Brissett and the Falcons Matt Ryan leading their offenses. Atlanta offense also is sparked by WR Julio Jones and RB Devonta Freeman.   Indianapolis by far has the most current  winning percentage over any NFL opponent to start their home schedule of the regular season.   Colts lead the series at 14-2, and with their .875 percentage over the Falcons after 16 games.  Colts probably would have had a record of 15-1 instead when  the Falcons last visited Indianapolis.   Colts QB  Peyton Manning  though was sidelined the entire 2011 NFL regular  season because of his neck surgeries, along with Manning being placed the Franchise Tag.   Indianapolis will certainly perform better than they did when they played Atlanta at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on November 6, 2011.  Falcon's Matt Ryan outdueled the Colts Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky with completing 14 of his 24 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns.  Two of his TD's were in the air to Julio Jones from 50 and 80 yards, and 1 yard to Tony Gonzalez.  Defensive back Jerraud Powers 6-yard interception return for a TD in the second quarter, was the only score for the Colts as Atlanta defeated Indianapolis 31-7.   Indianapolis avenged their loss when they defeated Atlanta in their last regular season visit to the  Georgia Dome back on November 22, 2015.  Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw two separate TD passes from 7 yards and 2 yards to Ahmad Bradshaw, plus a 6-yard INT return by Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson, to help the Colts tie the game at 21-21 with 10:07 remaining in the fourth quarter.  Adam Vinatieri kicked  43-yard  game-winning field goal  with 8  seconds remaining, to help the Colts defeat the Falcons 24-21.   LOS's retractable roof could be closed to keep everyone inside cool and comfortable, for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because mostly cloudy skies at 84 degrees, feels like 85 degrees, is the gamecast outside the stadium area, along with 15% precipitation, 47% humidity, and southwest winds at 15 miles per hour.   Head Linesman Alex Kemp leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the live game action on the LOS playing field between the Colts and Falcons.   NO injuries the Colts and Falcons players,  win your second game of the season in front of your loyal fans, and LET'S  GO COLTS!!!!!                  https://www.colts.com/game-day/2019/reg-week3/falcons-at-colts/            
    • I could be wrong, but I think he started slow last year as well.  It will come.  Our defense will shine this game.  Opening day they will be pumped!!
