Peyton Manning will officially become a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio this weekend.
The two-time Super Bowl champion is known for his witty comments and proved that once again during Thursday night’s Hall of Fame Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys when he talked about doing an alternate Monday Night Football broadcast with his brother, Eli.
“We’re not going to be in a booth,” he said. “They said to me with my forehead and my neck I couldn’t fit into a booth.”
Earlier in the week, Manning dropped by Pardon My Take and fielded questions while also confirming that the famous red mark on his forehead was caused by his helmet being too tight.
“Well, I mean, it’s such a big forehead, so there’s so much room for the camera to zoom in on it, right? It’s a big target. Probably who I blame for the red forehead was, like every year, you sort of get refitted for your helmet, right? The makers of Riddell come in and just want to check the helmet, be sure it still fits, and they would always tell me, ‘Hey, the red forehead, that means the helmet fits just right. That means it’s tight, it’s close to your head, it’s going to prevent injuries, it’s perfect.’
