Eli's Hips, Peyton's Pits and Double Bird Highlight Monday Night Mannings: TRAINA THOUGHTS

1. There was A LOT going on with the Peyton and Eli Show during the Eagles-Cowboys game last night.

Here's your Monday Night Mannings recap of another successful week for the brothers and their alternate broadcast airing on ESPN2.

Eli gave the double bird.

• Peyton had pit stains.

• Eli compared himself to Shakira.

• LeBron James showed off some skills as an offensive coordinator.

• Petyon couldn't handle Mike McCarthy's awful clock management.

• Twitter had a lot of thoughts about Nick Saban's awful camera.

• And at the end of the night, Peyton announced the boys will be off for the next three weeks and will return to ESPN2 for Monday Night Football on Oct. 25 for the Saints-Seahawks Week 7 matchup.

2. I’m not going to waste your time writing a whole big thing today. I’m just going to let you know that after the Eagles lost to the Cowboys, 41–21, on Monday Night Football, Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts gave us what might be the Top Sports Quote of 2021.

At the least, he gave us the best sports analogy of 2021.

3. I don't want to overhype this video of two Lions fans reacting to Detroit's losing on a 66-yard field goal, but it's so so good.

4. It's Tuesday, so it's time for the best weekly segment on sports TV: "Bad Beats."

5. With Tom Brady returning to New England Sunday night, the quarterback is trying to make sure his outspoken father doesn't get out of control this week. He issued this statement to ESPN

SI Recommends

"I've actually prepared a statement that I wanted to say, and it's really all that I have to say on the subject. Comments made by Thomas Edward Brady, a 77-year-old insurance company CEO who should know better at this point in his life, doesn't necessarily reflect the views or positions held by his son, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., so furthermore should Tom Sr. continue to speak out on behalf of his son without the express written consent, Tom Jr. reserves the right to eventually put him in a home against his will. That's all I have to say."
