Eli Manning Hilariously Disguises Himself As “Chad Powers,” Tries To Walk On To The Penn State Football Team

Eli Manning NFL

If you’re a football fan, then you know that the Manning brothers are a national treasure that need to be protected at all costs.

And if you don’t get it, just checkout their Monday Night Football Manningcast for a few minutes, and it’ll all make sense.

But speaking of the Manning bros, ol’ Eli just pulled off one of the most hilarious bits I’ve seen in a hot minute.

The former New York Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champ disguised himself as a guy named “Chad Powers,” with ambitions of walking onto the Penn State football team.

I’ll admit, this disguise was incredible.

Rocking a sweet mustache and a luscious flow, along with a face mask that makes him look unrecognizable, he was ready to secure a spot at QB1 for James Franklin’s team…

Even though he looks like he should be a character on Anchorman, rather than a quarterback.

In the first video, he facetimes his brother Peyton, and he rightfully compliments his fake mustache, and then meets with Franklin, and they discuss everything they’re gonna be doing.

Once he walks into the practice facility, everybody in the room gives him a strange look, probably thinking:

“What in the damn hell is this 40-year-old doing trying to walk on?”

He signs up, and starts chatting it up with the fellow players trying to walk on, and also the coaches, where he says he was homeschooled and never played in an actual game of football, and was coached and taught by his mom.

He runs the 40-yard-dash at 5.49, but hey, he’s a pocket passer anyways. All he needs is a cannon of an arm.

He then begins to throw, and absolutely airs it out like he’s Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite, trying to toss the ol’ pigskin over the mountains.

Needless to say, Chad Powers started to turn some heads with his ability to throw the deep ball.

Unfortunately, in the second video, head coach James Franklin announces that there was one player who was deemed ineligible, due to his poor 40 time and old age…

And poor Chad Powers got cut from the team.

However, he hilariously reveals his true identity to the other walk-ons, and the whole place goes nuts once they realized that they were practicing with Eli Manning.

Eli Manning Throwing Double Middling Fingers Is Exactly Why Peyton & Eli Are Winning Monday Night Football

If you’re still watching the regular Monday Night Football broadcast like it’s 1984, what the hell are you doing?

If it were up to me, Peyton and Eli would broadcast every single game in the NFL season, the playoffs and the Super Bowl. They would get zero sleep, we’d have to have multiple games 7 days a week, but we could make it happen.

Between the guests they bring in each week, the Manning brothers’ hilarious banter about Peyton’s massive head, a couple of Super Bowl winning quarterbacks breaking down everything happening at the line of scrimmage, and even the love of the game that you can just feel from these two… it’s just a phenomenal broadcast.

And to top it all off, you have Eli throwing double middle fingers on live TV… you gotta love it.

Last season, we had the Philadelphia Eagles facing off with the Dallas Cowboys, and while it really wasn’t much of a game (the Cowboys crushed ’em), the Peyton and Eli broadcast delivered.

The brothers were joined by Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (who’s having one hell of a season with his new team), LeBron James (who cares?), Alabama head football coach Nick Saban, and finally, former Eagles defensive end Chris Long.

And while Chris was on, Eli got to talking about his days on the New York Giants, and going to head to head with a rabid Eagles fanbase. So rabid that even the kids would talk shit:

“You go to Philly, I mean, you’re gettin’ the double bird right away from a nine-year-old kid.

I would give the bird, can we do that? I’m sure you can blur that out, right?

So getting the double bird from a nine year old and they’re saying things about my mom and Peyton.”

I mean, that sounds about right.

But, it didn’t take long for Eli to get word that waving two middle fingers around on live TV is generally frowned upon.

After a commercial break, he issued a rather comical apology:

“Sorry, earlier I gave the double bird, I guess that’s frowned upon so I apologize if I offended anybody. 

That’s just what a 9-year-old did to me and I thought I could do it back, so Chris I blame you for that.”

GOLD… absolute GOLD.
