  • Eli walked into that makeup artist at 41 years old and walked out at 46 and a half years old. Genius.
  • I love the coach getting all excited, “I think I see something in him” lol

    Him saying his mom wasn't smart but she was a good coach was gold

    I forget how good these guys are until seeing it all in context. With that being said, seeing walk-ons is a reminder of how difficult it is to get on a college roster - let alone with a reputable team. To see Eli in retirement go in there and look like a pro among the college players shows the level he plays at. I gained a whole lot more respect for Eli after this. Last, his humor and personality shined through in spades. Now I see how he was a leader capable of Super Bowl rings. I never necessarily doubted him, but now it's clear. The coaches who thought he was a walk-on had to have been disappointed to see it was fake. They thought they had a walk-on starter! Haha...

    Eli shined here. How do you make a 41 into a home schooled 18 yo?
    “Chad 3rd person” was hilarious as he’s running that slower 40. “Peyton’s forehead roller” was lol.

    Eli always looked small in the NFL, but next to these guys he's a monster
  • As a Patriots fan, I have every reason to dislike Eli (and Peyton, for that matter), but I can't. Everything they do on commercials and on something like this is hilarious. They both seem like genuinely nice guys and humble as can be. Archie did a great job raising those boys.
  • Eli just seems like a fun guy. This has totally changed my perspective of him while he was a player

    Props to the one coach who saw the talent and wanted to sign him despite the bad physicals

    Imagine what these young men are thinking that this guy is making us look bad and then they find out who he is. It would be one part relief and one part thrilled to meet him.

    I grew up with Eli, this was one of the best things I've ever seen. Classic.

    Loved this episode, so funny! Great job Coach Franklin and Penn State for allowing this episode to be filmed in their facility. This is a serious thing many teams (if not all teams) do for players. It was great seeing behind the scenes. It was also great to see those young men putting their hopes and dreams out there for us all to see. Thanks to all. Well done!

    The brothers never miss a chance to tease each other like true brothers do makes it even better
  • The Mannings' are hilarious. They do the best sketches. "Think fast run fast"!! Chad is the man!!

    The disappointment on the coach’s face when Eli took the face off and he found out he couldn’t sign him was hilarious😂

    This is priceless!! Franklin looked like he was dying inside, trying not to laugh. 😂😂😂😂

    I played my college ball at The University of South Carolina. I fondly remember those after practice team huddles when coach Jim Carlen would announce one of my teammates would be rewarded with a scholarship and the response from the other teammates was exactly the same as in this video. It only happened a few times but It was one of the highlights of every season.
