Peyton and Eli to call 10 MNF games on ESPN2

It should be noted here, that ESPN has done this during the college football playoffs for the last few years.  
 

They have one channel for the game broadcast, and another channel where they have 4-6 coaches sitting around talking about what is happening from an insider perspective.   So they’ve done this enough to know what they’re doing.  
 

And remember, if people leave the primary broadcast to listen to the Manning broadcast, it’s still an ESPN Broadcast.   The network loses nothing.

Stupid move by ESPN but that is to be expected.

It's astonishing how you are wrong about everything.   Like if you flipped a coin you would be right far more often.    This is far from a mistake,  and the ratings will show it

Someone mentioned advertising above.   I wonder if advertisers bought MNF spots on ESPN if those same spots will be in ESPN 2

How is it stupid? This might work or it might not. Networks have been after Peyton since he retired. This should bring in a good ratings for ESPN.

Yay, ESPN did something right for once! :)

still hoping for it's complete and total collapse

 

it's unwatchable and the Mannings carrying on during a few MNF games does nothing to change my feelings on ESPN/Disney. Of all mega corps that are sucking the life out of everything and pushing heavy handed narratives, they're the flag ship. Complete and total collapse.

Don't care much for ESPN but this move I can give them the chance. I really hope this is enjoyable and watchable. Going to be fun seeing Peyton discussing football in real time.

Good luck with that.

Oh, I'm well aware that my take is probably about as popular as being a prohibitionist in 1925 or something. The ESPN/Disney/ABC thing is awful though. The worst. 

 

Anyway.

Sounds fun.  I'm interested in what they think about the game. They have great personalities and we feel like we know them already

I predict it will be a success

It mirrors what is happening on youtube with people paying to watch people react to tv shows and movies.  I cannot remember what that's called but, it's a thing

 

I seem to recall some former player doing something like this as a subscription service

If anyone has been watching the College Bowl on NBC the past montj with Peyton as host and Cooper as co host that probably gives us a bit of a glimpse how things may go though obviously less comical banner but a light hearted mode nonetheless

Yeah, stupid move to have one of the best QB to ever play the game and the guy who stopped Brady twice calling games. 
 

What on earth is ESPN thinking?

I'll assume you know there is more than two teams in the NFL yet you somehow think the Mannings are loved and admired by people all over the country. Sad.

There is a reason every network has been trying to throw barrels of money at Peyton to get him in the booth

You just can’t help yourself.   You can’t get out of your own way. 
 

Media outlets like ESPN have a mountain of research on everyone they put on the air.  They know exactly what the public thinks of Peyton and Eli.   You don’t have to agree, but if you think they’re just acting blindly you’re kidding yourself.

Hate to break it to you but again you are wrong. (Does it ever stop?)They will not be in the "booth".

Good lord,   you're a terrible poster.   You're wrong always.    No one ever agrees with you.   You would think that would get through to you,   but it doesn't.    :lol::D

"They know exactly what the public thinks of Peyton and Eli."   HA-HA-HA  So TV executives that launch new shows every year never have a show fail.  Hate to inform you of this, you know nothing about ESPN's decision making. You are not a part of ESPN. You are not a marketing executive. You really should hesitate before you post what you write or put them in a comedy section.

Sorry.    30 years in Television.   I have friends at ESPN.    I know so much more than you it’s not even funny.  
 

Having research on people doesn’t guarantee success.   The show can still have problems for a wide variety of reasons.   But both men have done a ton of commercials and are now branching out doing more.   YOU were the person who claimed the Manning’s weren’t beloved by America.   YOU were the one who stated as fact.    Heck, you couldn’t even figure out what a booth was when the topic was television. 
 

There is no topic you don’t think you’re an expert on.   Everyone else here simply laughs.   Give it up, for your sake. 
 

PS — my career in media isn’t a state secret here on this website.  Im a member here more than 9 years.   Most people here know.   Apparently, you’re one of the few who doesn’t.    :hat:

Neither do you.

Neither are you.

 

And you apparently have no idea how beloved Peyton is all over the country.

 

Yet you think you’re informed enough to call this brilliant move by ESPN “stupid”…

 

You must not own a mirror.  :lol:

    • We will see how the season plays out, I think we will lose on Sunday but if we win that game that would be a huge boost. To your comment, I have seen many years where teams have had a huge point differential in the positive and only be 8-8 and then teams that are barely in the negative be 11-5 lol. I'll take a quote from Magic Johnson, after the Lakers beat Boston 107-106 in Game 4 of the 1987 Finals "Doesn't matter if you win by 30 or by 1, as long as you win".   All people in the end care about is winning to have that good record.
    • We just have to get healthy on the OL, and to be frank, a lot better on D....  Seattle's trenches are not that good, yet spanked us on both sides.   At present, we are tied for last in the league.... and we are what our record says we are lol. So the Texans are better than us. And we're on par with Jax... And we have dropping our yearly game to Jax to look for.....   I jest.. of course. But at the same time serious.  
    • IDK... Didn't Luck screw up years for us by going to Denver lol... Or was he snow boarding somewhere else.
    • Pats 23 Jets 13 Broncos 19 Jags 16 Bills 27 Dolphins 24 49ers 24 Eagles 13 Rams 27 Colts 20 - I hope I am wrong Raiders 20 Steelers 23 Bengals 24 Bears 17 Texans 17 Browns 30 Saints 23 Panthers 17 Vikings 20 Cards 26 Falcons 9 Bucs 34 Titans 26 Seahawks 27 - Titans will lose again IMO Cowboys 24 Chargers 23 Chiefs 30 Ravens 24 Lions 17 Packers 31
    • Good Luck to you!    Nothing better than landing on your feet for a fresh start.   Thank you for your service, and hope opportunities are heading your way.   You earned it, you deserve it.
