Peyton Manning trolls Patriots during appearance on ‘Monday Night Football’
Peyton Manning and Charles Barkley joined announcers Rece Davis and Kirk Herbstreit on ESPN’s alternative Monday Night Football broadcast, and they had an absolute ball.
There were some great moments, but one takes the cake for the shadiest and most savage of the night.
Peyton takes a shot at the Patriots
At one point, Manning was explaining to Davis, Herbstreit, and Barkley the procedure for a coach calling plays into a quarterback’s headset. He found the perfect opportunity to troll the New England Patriots while he was breaking it down.
“As soon as the runner’s tackled, you’re able to hear the play caller talking to the quarterback’s ear. He has until 15 seconds on the play clock, and then somebody cuts the line. Now, certain teams, maybe in the Northeast, they don’t cut their lines, they actually let it go all the way to zero seconds.”
Everyone got a good laugh out of that one, but Manning had more zingers up his sleeve.
ESPN has been trying to get Manning on Monday Night Football, but he hasn’t been game. He even turned down a monster contract offer from them back in March. You have to imagine that watching him trade quips as a guest on Monday Night Football will only make ESPN want him more.
