LOS ANGELES — Former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning appeared in a TV segment with his older brother, Cooper Manning, on Sunday morning.
Peyton Manning made the appearance during Cooper’s “Manning Hour” segment on “Fox NFL Kickoff.”
In the video, the two are in bed dressed in tuxedos. That’s when Cooper decides to jokingly tell Peyton that he’s “embarrassing” the family.
“I’m going to be honest with you, we had a family meeting, and we’re a little embarrassed,” Cooper said. “You’re unemployed, you don’t have a job.”
Peyton retired from the NFL after helping the Broncos win Super Bowl 50 earlier this year.
Cooper goes on to suggest perhaps Peyton should find a TV job like him.
“I’m a TV star,” Cooper jokes. “I pulled some strings, maybe you can wow them and get a job.”
When Peyton asks, “You have Fox executives coming over?” Cooper quickly corrects him and says it’s more along the lines of PBS and “the zoo channel.”
Cooper then tries to give Peyton some lessons in how to speak on TV and tells him not to be nervous.
Peyton even throws in a jab at his older brother, saying, “I’m glad we’re wearing tuxedos so you can hop on my back and ride my coattails like you’ve been doing for the past 20 years.”
In the end, Cooper suggests building a fort. And when he asks if they should invite brother Eli Manning, Peyton responds with “you know the rules — no Eli’s allowed.”
“Fox NFL Kickoff” airs Sundays at 9 a.m. on FOX31.
