ELI MANNING had a good laugh at brother Peyton’s expense on Monday night.
This happened during their weekly show of Manningcast — an alternative commentary the legendary NFL quarterbacks presented during ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
Along with Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe, the topic of the tough homecoming came up when former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson enjoyed a less-than-warm return to Lumen Field as a member of the Denver Broncos.
When asked if Peyton was booed upon his return to Indianapolis after joining the Broncos, Eli was quick to jump in with a snide remark.
Eli said, “It was cut differently.”
A less than impressed-sounding Peyton responded with, “Okay, thanks for pointing that out, E.”
Indeed, Peyton was cut by the Colts after thirteen successful seasons, during which time he established himself as one of the NFL’s best passers, reaching two Super Bowls and winning one.
However, after missing the 2011 season with a neck injury, Peyton was released to a five-year contract the following offseason after just one year and replaced by Andrew Luck.
However, Peyton had the last laugh.
Over the next four seasons, he played with the Broncos, reaching two Super Bowls and winning another in his final NFL game.
The Colts have yet to reach another Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, younger brother Eli spent sixteen years with the New York Giants and also won two Super Bowl rings along the way.
So if anyone has the right to poke fun at Peyton, it’s Eli.
