Any time that Tom Brady and the Manning brothers get together, it’s usually content gold. That was once again the case when the Bucs’ quarterback joined Peyton and Eli Manning on their Monday night show “The Manningcast” while watching the Seattle Seahawks host Tampa Bay’s opponent in Week 8, the New Orleans Saints.

The trio, known for some classic games against each other over the years, got into a myriad of topics during Brady’s segment on the show. One of the most intriguing facts was Peyton asking Brady how anyone can stop a Buccaneers offense that is averaging over 30 points a game.

“Somebody one time asked Tony Dungy, ‘Hey, how would you stop Peyton and that offense?’ Tony actually answered the question,” Peyton Manning said.  “I was like, ‘Tony, what are you doing?’ So my question to you, Tom, is how do you stop this Bucs offense?”

“Let’s lay it all out there for you guys,” Brady said. “I like a lot of one-on-one coverage to Mike Evans and Antonio (Brown) and Chris Godwin. Do the best you can. I think you’ve got to try to come up and challenge us and get up there and see what you can do and see if you can guard us. I think that’s really been a style that’s successful. I really encourage that.”

Brady and Peyton Manning also have a common acquaintance in quarterback coach Clyde Christensen, who is with Brady in Tampa and spent years coaching Manning on the Colts as well.

Unfortunately for Christensen, the quarterbacks were making good-natured jokes at his expense, highlighting that he’s the next person that should be on the TB12 method for his weight and eating habits.

“Speaking of Clyde Christensen, longtime coach with the Colts, true or false? Clyde’s body is good for TB12 advertising method. True or false?” Manning said.  “Is he allowed to wear your T-shits and hats?”

“Are you trying to short the TB12 stock here?” Brady said. “I need to get Clyde some non-packaged food. Too much of what he eats comes in a wrapper and you’ve got to tear it apart. I said, ‘Clyde, just because it’s popcorn it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have calories. You can’t eat eight popcorns in one sitting. You can’t do that. That’s the before picture.”

Brady didn’t wait to start taking jabs at Peyton either for looking a little too tight in an Ole Miss jersey following Tennessee’s loss to Eli’s Rebels last weekend.

There have been multiple historic games between Brady, Peyton and Eli over their careers. Brady faced off with Peyton Manning quite often in the AFC during his time with the Patriots and Peyton’s tenure with the Colts and Broncos.

It’s the two Super Bowl match-ups with Eli, though, that many still mention up to this day. Brady has a 7-3 record in the Super Bowl, but two of those losses came at the hands of Eli Manning and the Giants.

Eli Manning didn’t hesitate to bring that up.

“I enjoyed much the ones I played against Peyton than Eli,” Brady said.

“I enjoyed all of our games, Tom,” Manning said.

The Manningcast will be on for 10 games this season, including one wild card game in the postseason. With four already completed, another coming next week and the wild card, that leaves four Monday night games available for the remainder of the schedule.  While no announcement has been made yet, it would not come as a surprise if Peyton and Eli Manning were on to call Brady and the Bucs’ Monday Night Football home game against Eli’s former team, the Giants, on November 22 at Raymond James Stadium.

This was great listening to these three talk. I could listen to these guys talk football all night. Brady is so much more out of his shell since coming to Tampa and it’s a beautiful thing to see.

Ur so right! I think it is authentic as he knows this is his town and his team. Outside of Jordan, I’ve never seen such a thing happen in team sports. Sure, there has been stars before that helped turn franchises around. But what Brady has done with our Bucs is nothing short of incredible. The Brady effect is alive and well. He seems more relaxed and outgoing than ever before. I think that might just be the different coaching styles of Belicheck versus BA. It’s a wonderful thing to watch and experience!

Very enjoyable to watch. It should be interesting when the Bucs play the Giants on MNF.

There’s little doubt that Brady brings more to the team than his play on the field, but the team surrounding him is good enough to respond to the change in mindset.
