The Mannings Add Matty To The Family

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

You're not going to believe this, but the Mannings are finally in a commercial! I've been saying for years that they should be in one and now they are. DirecTV has Matt Leinart getting a lesson from Archie in the Manning's backyard when Peyton and Eli come home....the hilarity ensues.....

I'm thinking Disney needs to give the Mannings their own sitcom. Almost like the Caveman one their coming out with. It will only work if they come up with the idea 4 years after Peyton retires though. You mirror their timing and success they are sure to have from the Caveman sitcom.

Welcome To The Family Matt (AZ Sports Hub)


I'm not a big fan.

I can just see the Madison Avenue guys right now: "The Mannings are funny, talented and compelling. But is there any way we can get a USC angle in there?"

As Adam Sandler's character on SNL's "Stand Up and Win" once said: "Who are the ad wizards who came up with that one?"

Lionheart looks too, ummmmm, not sure of the adjective I'm trying to say, but too "non-Manning" to have a good commercial career.

OK, Peyton, your brother can be in it too. But we're not writing anything for Eli to say, we don't want him to screw it up.

I honestly thought that that was Johnny Knoxville in the commercial, not Matt Leinart.

Shows how much I know.

This isn't really a commercial. Archie Manning really has given up on Eli and is trying to adopt the Bastard Maker.

C'mon...that's a good one.

The comment about Eli not speaking was pretty good, though!

They were in commercials together last year. Archie was giving a tour of the stadium and Eli and Peyton were fighting.
