Whether it’s the chemistry of Peyton and Eli as brothers to the variety of guests watching with them to wanting an alternative to avoid listening to the main MNF crew but still want to watch the game, people are watching and loving the broadcasts.

It seemed inevitable...The issue is that every sport is going to want somethttps://awfulannouncing.com/espn/everyone-loves-the-manningcast.htmlhing like this and not all of them will be good. Imagine an MLB 'ManningCast' with Rob Manfred making sure nobody on the show can have fun? Imagine a NASCAR 'ManningCast' that will likely devolve into the majority of fans being pissed off that it doesn’t include Dale Earnhardt Jr., because his NBC duties will likely prevent him from doing it for at least half the year and he’s the only person fans care about enough to tune in for?"
