Russell Wilson’s Monday Night Football spot with Manning brothers gets rave reviews

By Tim Weaver

Peyton Manning and Eli Manning were the big stars of Monday Night Football, despite a former league MVP playing in an overtime game. Their simulcast on ESPN2 proved to be the most interesting commentary for a MNF matchup in some time, even if the ratings weren’t a smash hit.

Part of the appeal was the A-list guest appearances. Ray Lewis, Charles Barkey, Travis Kelce and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson all dropped by to add to the conversation. Wilson’s work has been drawing rave reviews, at least from the folks who work in media. Watch Rich Eisen discuss how great Wilson was on TV.

Pat McAfee also approved.

Wilson still has a long way to go in his NFL career. Once he retires our best guess is that he’ll wind up as a U.S. Senator or perhaps the Governor of Washington, but he might have a gift for talking on television.
