During ESPN’s Manningcast, Peyton and Eli Manning shared a moment of unintentional hilarity while dissecting a failed “tush push” play attempted by the New York Giants during the Seahawks-Giants game. The short-yardage play, inspired by the Eagles, fell flat when quarterback Daniel Jones failed to gain ground, lacking the necessary push from offensive linemen Mark Glowinski and Shane Lemieux.
Clearly frustrated, Peyton critiqued the play’s design, sparking a comical exchange between the brothers as they analyzed the replay. “That guard needs to get his hand more on the butt, he’s not pushing hard enough,” Peyton remarked. Eli, visibly concerned, added, “He didn’t get a push.
The conversation evolved into the Mannings’ humorous suggestions for a perfect tush push execution. Peyton quipped, “You gotta push the right butt cheek, specifically,” to which Eli joked, “Yes, each of them has a butt cheek to focus on. That is disappointing.
Although the Giants’ attempt didn’t impress the Mannings, fans are hopeful that Jones and the team can redeem themselves in the eyes of the Manning brothers as Monday Night Football continues.
