ESPN sure knows how to jump the gun on several things, but they have certainly taken it way too far with their latest segment on the Manning family.
A recent video surfaced showing Arch manning pump faking, flipping the ball in his hand, and tossing a 45-yard pass at a Clemson camp and social media has been going crazy ever since.
That comment from Eli Manning was all it took for ESPN to jump the gun on a recent segment on Get Up where analysts debated whether the 16-year-old Arch Manning might become the best Manning in the family.
“He’d have to have the talent of grandpa. He’d have to have the excellence of Peyton and the clutch ability of Eli,” co-host Max Kellerman said. “Peyton Manning was like the most excellent player who ever lived until it mattered most, and then Eli was the best, right? He may have all of that in him. He doesn’t have to be the best at each category, just mix it all up there.”
Molly Qerim Rose added, “And just beat [six-time Super Bowl-winning QB] Tom Brady.”
