I've always been a big fan of the guy, but I can't watch TV for 5 minutes without seeing at least one commercial with the guy. Enough is enough. There is such thing as over-exposure and Peyton has officially arrived at that point.

Cut him slack; he's just compensating for the fact that he'll never get a Super Bowl ring. :devil:

I have no idea who this is. I mean, I've heard the name, and I know he plays for the Colts or the Patriots, but I wouldn't know what he looked like if he if he hit me with a stick that said "I'm Peyton Manning."

My point is: you can avoid this stuff if you really try.

Not if you watch a lot of sports on TV, especially football.

And you seriously don't know who Peyton Manning is? If so, I have to assume you're a baseball only sports fan, no?

Anyone ever seen the movie Celtic Pride? If you have then Peyton Manning is exactly like the guy in that movie that gets kidnapped.

My memory is selective. I remember a lot about baseball, but though I can watch a football game and enjoy it, I'm not likely to care much about the players or remember details of the game afterwards. And the fans turn me off. I find football to be a very weird mix of cracked-out testosterone and homoerotica.

And if you don't know who Peyton Manning is, you don't recognize him on commercials. It's ignorant bliss.

The one sport I can't get into at all is basketball. I went to a game last year, the Bulls vs. some team, I think it was the Portland Pioneers, and I was bored to tears. The atmosphere is fun but the game is stupid. The court is three inches wide and the players are eleven feet tall so they take one step across the court, score, turn around and start all over again. Bor. ing. I waited on the owner of the Bulls once and had no idea who he was, and I made a lewd comment about the oysters. He laughed so hard he turned red. I got fired. This made me none too keen on basketball either.

He's kind of funny. Not a bad commercial performance for an athlete.

It's really no different than it used to be. It's just that we have more channels so we have more commercials and those commercials have Peyton Manning on them. I remember back in the 70s when Joe Namath did all kinds of ads for shaving cream, cologne, popcorn makers and even panty hose just to name a few. Just think if Namath played now. He'd make Peyton look like Mark Bulger.

I saw a piece on his advertising career recently, and overexposure was exactly what they were afraid of.

It's happened, for sure. Pretty sad, especially if you like a 6'4", 235 pound quarterback with a laser, rocket arm.

I think he does pretty well for himself considering acting isn't his day job.

But I'm sick of seeing him.

Yep. That's my point. I like the guy, but having his mug thrown at me every time I turn around is making me no like him anymore.

Peyton Manning is the epitome of "anti-controversey" -- you can make him your pitch man and feel supremely confident that he's not going to do anything crazy, stupid or illegal/amoral to force a hasty re-shoot of your campaign.

The NFL pushes him as the face of the league, and the advertisers respond by giving him work. As long as the commercials stay amusing, I'm not too bothered by it.

If you want to start killing spokespeople, you can start with the Vizio guy.

I can't believe just how much we think alot sometimes Mike. It's scary. :lol:

I made the exact same comments on this forum about a month ago.

They are marketing the heck out of this guy, and it's getting a little overboard.

I even watched a special on the marketing of Manning a couple weeks ago. I think it was 60 Minutes (but not sure).

And look what it got John... chronic heartburn.

I guess it could be worse. He could be doing Preparation H commercials. :lol:

True enough, but I am not wanting to see Manning in panty hose.

I'm sorry I think it'd be the other way around. I know that this isn't a discussion on how good or not good he is, but Peyton's twice the QB that Broadway Joe was. The thing to think about is how much worse it would be if Peyton played in a big market like NY.

But, as you said, we're not talking about who is the better QB. That's an argument for another day. Namath was one of those guys who men wanted to be like and women wanted to be with. Peyton's a great guy and has a squeaky clean image but he doesn't have the appeal that Namath had. He's no sex symbol. If Namath played in the same era as Peyton, Peyton would be just another QB as far as Madison Ave. is concerned.

Has everyone seen the ESPN commercial where the Mannings are being given the "tour of ESPN??" Archie is up ahead with the escort; while, Peyton and Eli are lagging behind because they are too busy "wet-willying" one another and kicking each other's backsides. Every time Archie turns around--they are pointing at the other. Good stuff.

I like that one. ESPN has great commercials.

MWM, I used to feel the same way about Manning. I actually thought his record setting TD pass season was one of the most selfish things I'd ever seen in sports (Yeah, Edgerrin James couldn't have taken in some of those from the two, right?).

Now I just appreciate the man for what he is: the best QB I've seen since John Elway.

How is throwing 49 touchdown passes selfish? That season that offense could not be stopped and its not like Peyton was throwing passes when they were up big at the end of the game just to get the record. The most selfish record in sports? Cal Ripken says hello.

Come on now everyone gets sick, pulls a muscle, doesnt get enough sleep, just doesnt feel 100% I am sure that there were many days where Cal's backup would have performed better but the manager wouldnt dare sit Cal. Plus how about that story about Kevin Costner and Ripkens wife and the phanton black out only at the stadium causing a game postponement. Just saying.

You should be a Titans fan. His brother is picking apart the worst defense in the NFL right now too. It's not fun.

OTOH, Vince Young is going to be a stud QB for years in the NFL. He's an amazing player. If he had some decent receivers, the Titans would have won, at least, 2 more games.

His brother still has a lot to learn, apparently. :D

Eli Manning might be the only player in football that I actually root personally against. The stunt he pulled leading up the draft ranks, in my mind, as one of the most arrogant and bush league moves in recent NFL history.

Lesson Learned: Karma is a beyotch, Brother of Peyton.

Well John Elway did almost the same thing to the Colts and everything worked out okay for him.

Come on, I laugh every time I see one of his commercials.
He gets the waiters apron and puts it on like it was a jersey from a sports team.....
Cheering for the guy changing his oil
They arent booing, they are saying mooooooooooooo-vers.
Kid breaks your window with the newspaper and you tell him its ok, he still has the best arm in the neighborhood.
D-CAF, D-CAF

seriously, great writing for Peyton there.
