The Manning Brothers Steal The Show

Peyton and Eli Manning made their national television debut last night during ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcast and it was everything we'd hoped it would be. The Peyton and Eli MegaCast was entertaining, insightful, and the brothers' personalities that we grew to love (or hate) over the years were on full display.

Not only did they give us great content for the next few days but they're leaving everyone wanting more. You immediately felt like you were with them, watching the game and sharing a few laughs. If you're new to football or an expert in any aspect, it's almost a guarantee you're going to learn something every time. It even had professional athletes from other sports, Phil Mickelson in particular, loving the duo. 

 Here are some of the best moments from the show.

ESPN will air the MegaCast 10 times this season, including the next two weeks in a row. They also said that Peyton will be in Denver and Eli will be in New Jersey for most broadcasts. Lee Fitting, the senior vice president of production for ESPN said this is something they've always wanted to do and the brothers were perfect.
We’re looking to do something different with Peyton and Eli, that feeling is mutual. Peyton and Eli are looking to do something different, as well. I think it’s pretty clear that if Peyton or Eli wanted to be in a booth, they probably would have been in some booth at some network by now. But they’re excited to do something like this that’s more casual, more conversational, two brothers talking ball as if they’re sitting in a living room or basement together where they can bring guests in and friends in and former teammates and current players and ex-players in.

You can catch Week 2 and 3's show on ESPN where the Detroit Lions take on the Green Bay Packers and then the Philadelphia Eagles face the Dallas Cowboys.
