    Eli walked into that makeup artist at 41 years old and walked out at 46 and a half years old. Genius.

    Him saying his mom wasn't smart but she was a good coach was gold

    "Brady can play til he's 45, Chad can play til he's 26" killed me when the Chad disguise made Eli look 15 years older than he already is

    Imagine what these young men are thinking that this guy is making us look bad and then they find out who he is. It would be one part relief and one part thrilled to meet him.

    As a Patriots fan, I have every reason to dislike Eli (and Peyton, for that matter), but I can't. Everything they do on commercials and on something like this is hilarious. They both seem like genuinely nice guys and humble as can be. Archie did a great job raising those boys.

    I love the coach getting all excited, “I think I see something in him” lol

    Eli always looked small in the NFL, but next to these guys he's a monster

    Eli's comedic timing is spot on. I died when he talked about Peyton's forehead 🤣

    The Mannings' are hilarious. They do the best sketches. "Think fast run fast"!! Chad is the man!!

    Props to the one coach who saw the talent and wanted to sign him despite the bad physicals

    never was a Manning fan, but the more I see of both him and Peyton, the more I like both of them and wish they were still in the league for sure..... great guys!

    “I hope these receivers got speed…Chad has a hose for an arm!”….I can’t stop laughing.

    Loved this episode, so funny! Great job Coach Franklin and Penn State for allowing this episode to be filmed in their facility. This is a serious thing many teams (if not all teams) do for players. It was great seeing behind the scenes. It was also great to see those young men putting their hopes and dreams out there for us all to see. Thanks to all. Well done!

    For real though, even a 41 year old who hasn’t played ball in several years clearly stands out from the crowd. Sometimes people forget how good these guys have to be to play pro ball.

    The Manning brothers are American treasures. I'm so glad we get to see this side of Eli.
