EAST RUTHERFORD - Breaking news out of Hollywood: Peyton Manning no-showed his scheduled meeting with younger brother Eli, quarterback of the Giants.
Those watching NFL games this year were aware the Mannings were supposed to get together Tuesday – heck, we’ve all seen the DirecTV commercial by now featuring the now-retired future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton sitting on his couch in a robe and slippers, setting their sibling date by writing ‘Eli’ in his personal calendar.
Well, turns out that never happened. Maybe Peyton forgot.
"I mean, we were penciled in to see each other today," Eli Manning deadpanned at his locker. "He bailed on me."
The Giants’ two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback could take the time Tuesday to joke with reporters about these comedic things less than 48 hours after leading the Giants to their first season-opening victory since 2010.
