Eli jokes Giants could probably find spot for Peyton if he wants to be quality control coach

Peyton Manning, Eli Manning

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a guest on Friday’s edition of PFT Live from Radio Row in San Francisco and Mike Florio asked him the question you’d expect given the focus on his brother this week.

Eli gave the answer you’d expect, which is that no one knows whether Peyton will be calling it a career after Super Bowl 50. The youngest Manning brother did say with a smile that he’d be happy to play for his brother if he decides to transition to life as a coach in 2016.

“I think if Peyton wants to come and be a quality control [coach] for the New York Giants and work in the quarterback room … earn his ropes, earn his way into the coaching routine I think we could probably open up a spot for him,” Manning said. 

As for his actual coaches, Manning said he’s happy to still be working with Ben McAdoo and expressed gratitude for what he learned about football and life from Tom Coughlin over their 12 years working together.

Manning also shared stories about the worst torture he faced from Peyton while they were growing up and his thoughts about being a nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award during an entertaining visit.

    Peyton was very mean to Eli growing up, He beat him up profusely to the point of domestic violence with bruises and swelling. Also Peyton tortured Eli pinning him up against the wall if he did not name all the NFL teams in a few seconds.

    I said this back in 08 – I want PM as HC and Eli as OC in 2022.

    EZ Eli, my man. As awkward as he can appear at times he handles the NY media circus better than anyone in recent memory other than Jeter. Radio row at the SB is a piece of cake in comparison

    Calm down. Kids torture their younger siblings.

    It isn’t like the Mannings are the Baldwin Brothers.

    I wrapped my kid bro in a carpet and threw him in the bathtub. Turned on the water and put a straw in his mouth.

    He found his way out eventually.

    What is the Roger’ s policy on coaches who use HGH?

    Peyton played high school football with his big brother Cooper, but he never got the chance to play with Eli who was much younger. The opportunity to now play with Eli (and get paid $10M as a backup QB) probably appeals to Peyton and Archie.
    PM is not quite what he was in terms of arm strength but Pey Pey still has the football brains and he could be the perfect backup. While some may see this as throwing too many $ into the QB position, the salary cap will go up by $10M and maybe Eli can take a haircut to get him here.
    This could be the QB combo to take the team to the Super Bowl.
