Eli Manning was again in a pair of cleats and tossin’ round a pigskin on the gridiron this month — however he did not do it as Eli … reasonably, he did it as “Chad Powers,” and it was HILARIOUS.
Manning went undercover as a part of the most recent episode of “Eli’s Places” (produced by Peyton & Eli’s Omaha Productions on ESPN+), the place the previous New York Giants star wished to get the complete walk-on expertise at Penn State.
He spoke with head coach James Franklin and determined to get in on a “check out” — however ensuring he caked on the make-up and donned a wig so he would not be acknowledged.
Manning referred to as his alter ego “Chad Powers” — and when he took the sector, he stayed in character all the time.
The 41-year-old ran a 5.49 40-yard sprint … after which threw the soccer throughout — seemingly impressing Nittany Lions coaches.
“Not simply good wanting,” he stated through the bit, “I can throw it, child!”
Of course, Manning, who performed his faculty ball at Ole Miss, has exhausted all of his eligibility — so Chad Powers will not be getting in PSU video games anytime quickly.
