Yes - the Manning brothers REALLY did this commercial. I saw it with my own two horrified eyes today WHILE Peyton was crashing and burning at home as a massive favorite against the Chargers (who, in case you were wondering, stand NO shot against the Patriots next week.)
Ok, so, if you want to throw up in your mouth out of shock and disgust at the levels Peyton Manning will stoop to, go to the homepage for the DSRL. Now click on the video on the right hand side of the screen - don't worry, despite the name Double Stuf Racing League, it's not pornographic, except for the part where the Manning brothers furiously scrub their tongues with open faced Oreo cookies, like they're trying to erase the taste of some sour twang. Sour twang - I like that - good name for a band.
Doesn't Peyton Manning have an agent who's supposed to advise him not to do commercials like this? Big Show surmised that Eli must have really needed the money and that Peyton, TV whore that he is, was more than willing to help his little bro.
And oh, Jeremy Green published his postmortem on the Pats-Jags game, blaming the Jags defense for the loss...
