He doesn’t want to work in a traditional play-by-play, and that’s obvious to anyone who’s listened to him team up with older brother Peyton on the “Monday Night Football” broadcast the first two weeks of the season.
“We’re not talking about the first-and-ten run for two yards,” Manning said of what you would hear on a normal broadcast. “Like you’re watching at home you really don’t say anything… you’re just kind of like ‘alright, I mean where’s the chips? Where’s the drink?’”
After 16 seasons in the NFL, Manning knows which plays are worth the chatter.
“All of the sudden you know some drives get going and there’s a great catch, hey let’s go analyze that,” Manning said. “Or there’s a touchdown, you celebrate. ‘Hey, let’s go see what happened on that play.’”
Other than scoring plays, Manning has his eye out for what things fans would want to have explained to them from his perspective.
“On the interesting plays and, you know, if you see something cool, whether it’s the cadence or … a neat defense or a blitz… you try to explain those things,” the Giants great said.
The duo will be back for this week’s Monday nigher between two of Manning’s former rivals — the Eagles at Cowboys.
