I’m a HUGE Peyton and Eli fan.
If it were up to me, the ManningCast would take over the lead broadcast on Monday Night Football, and Joe Buck’s ass can move over to ESPN 2… or off the air all together.

John Hamm also made an appearance calling the show “not comedy.”
And NFL fans were loving it.
And the ladies were getting some “Hot Peyton” vibes from Teller as well:
