I like watching it with them. I was confused as to who was going to be play by play and who was going to be the color. But now I get it better. It's just watching the game with them like as if we were sitting in the same room. I'm enjoying it. So I give them a pass on the all over the place feel @superman

Yep. It’s just one big party with Peyton and Eli.

I'm watching the Peyton/Eli broadcast now, it's kinda tough, not very well produced, all over the place, we almost missed the Mariota run on third down, etc. 

My new favorite way to watch football.   So much knowledge.   I loved Ray Lewis.  I hope the get Ty Law at some point

Right? Can’t make this crap up! They go from hugging good game to end zone interception. 

DOINK!

 

I love Peyton and Eli too. They need to refine things, mostly clean up the audio, but I'm digging it.

 

And now da Raiderz get it back lol. Crazy

I couldn't see the Peyton/Eli broadcast but watched on ABC.

 

Now THAT was a great football game by both the Raiders and Ravens. Very fun to watch.

Couldn't ask for anything more from both the Thursday or Monday night games.

I wish they would have some stadium sounds/audio and keep the game more main screen

I was OK without it. To be honest, I tuned in 2nd half, and only because it was PM and EM lol...

I'm OK without the stadium audio, but agree in some limited form it would help. 

 

IMO, EM and PM need to be in the same room. I don't care if it's PM's basement. Just get them in the same room and let them goof on each other. And it would be nice to see them on opposite bottom corners and have them looking towards each other.

I expected nothing less from them, as far as insight and whatnot. Peyton was a little amped up early in the game, almost ripped his mic pack off at one point. He had to settle in after a few minutes. 

 

But if I'm trying to actually watch the game, how they set it up interfered with the action a few times. I'm sure they'll clean it up next week. If you've ever watched the college football championship coaches broadcast, they nail it. Roundtable style, several other coaches talking about the game, breaking down plays, giving background and bantering back and forth, it's the only way I watch the championship game anymore. 

 

I don't think they're going for exactly that, it's going to be less formal and structured, which is fine. But I don't want anecdotes or prop changes overshadowing the game action. It's like if I'm watching the game with friends, and someone decides to mute the audio or stand in front of the screen so they can tell a story. The game is still the main event.

Millions like you watch soap operas and The Simpsons and like your opinion their opinions don't matter. 

Networks put on what people want to watch.    You said no one wanted to watch it.   You were wrong,  yet again.   I don't care what you watch,   ESPN will get great ratings with the Manning's.

I loved it!  It was like watching with my sons! :)

 

It was also fun seeing Peyton relaxed yet animated at times.  And watching how his mind works.  Just fun!

 

That is definitely how I'll watch Monday nights!   Also nice chatting with you and Rachael during the game!

Not only were the ratings good, but the reviews about the Manning’s I’ve read today have been very, very good!    People really liked them. 
 

What?    KC was wrong?   Shocking!   That typically only happens on days of the week that end in….  d-a-y.

You are lying with no rebuttal, no proof of your empty, useless post. 

You said ESPN was making a big mistake with this.    You were obviously wrong 

 

Stupid move by ESPN but that is to be expected.

The FACTS are in so read them & weep.

 

The back-and-forth contest went into overtime, with the Raiders taking a 33-27 win on a walk-off touchdown pass from Derek Carr to Zay Jones. While the game gave plenty for fans to talk about, the debut of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” with the Manning brothers stole the headlines.

On Monday night, Peyton and Eli put on a show for NFL fans watching the Ravens-Raiders game with constant skits, hilarious one-liners, and brotherly jabs at each other.

Fans couldn’t stop talking about the broadcast, but were people actually tuning in? Apparently not many. According to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, the Manning’s generated a 0.6 rating, with a share of 1.

MNF Overnights by network:

ABC- 6.5/14

ESPN – 4.5/10

ESPN 2 – 0.6/1

— John Ourand (@Ourand_SBJ) September 14, 2021

In contrast, the primary feed, televised by ABC and ESPN, rang up a 6.5 and 4.5 rating, respectively, and shares of 14 and 10.

Fans loved the conversation between the Mannings, but it’s clear most of the fans watching the game were following along with a the traditional broadcast.

    • Didn't Doug Pedersen get roasted by just about everybody for apparently doing just that last year?   The problem is that trade included a conditional first round pick.   That was always too high, IMO.
    • I think we were in it more with Seattle, but we were definitely out of it earlier than the other. Seattle game I can say was definitely on Reich's situational play calling.   For the titans, I'll say the defense was getting those stops. Two interceptions and the fumble near the goal line were wins for them. By the forth quarter though they were definitely gassed. The offense wasn't sustaining drives and giving them time off the field like they should have. No we wernt getting good pressure on the qb, and our secondary is more than a little suspect, but the defence is making plays. Like last year, if the offense could step up more then, I feel at least, the defense would look alot better than it does.
    • Exactly.  And our 43 defense had total losers because we came from a 34 defense.  There were no 43 zone players, so by default, Ballard started out the defense with a bunch of "losers".  Because drafted players start and make plays does not mean they made the team because they are better than average.    Average players will make plays and accumulate stats if they are on the field, but that doesn't mean that they can make plays against playoff teams or any other team when it matters.
    • Homer pick 24-17 Bad injury report pick 17-14 Colts Terrible injury report pick 27-10 Fins  
    • From Wikipedia: "Polian was promoted to GM in 1986. While GM of the Bills, Polian won the NFL Executive of the Year Award twice, in 1988 and in 1991. After the 1992 season, on February 4, 1993, after the Bills had appeared in, and lost, their 3rd straight Super Bowl, Polian was fired as general manager.   If this is factual, then in his first 5 years, he won executive of the year twice, and made a Super Bowl appearance. (1991 Giants vs. Bills).
