Ron Burgundy is No Fan of Eli Manning’s Facial Hair: Video

With Anchorman 2 set to hit theaters in a little over two weeks, legendary media savant, Mr. Ron Burgundy, has been making the rounds to promote his new flick. And his latest stop just happened to include the ESPN Studios in Bristol, Connecticut, where he was able to sit down and interview Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

Among the topics discussed were Burgundy's playing days, Peyton's relationship with Thunder and the facial hair of New York Giants QB Eli Manning — of which, Burgundy was not impressed.

"I saw that," Burgundy said of Eli's beard. "It did not look good."

Eli, of course, recently shaved off his beard following a loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

“Just looked at it and thought it was time,” Manning said on the Wednesday following the loss, adding that it was nothing superstitious. "[It's] just a beard."

Perhaps Burgundy now sees a "succulent baby lamb" resemblance between the two.

    so with this the best parts of the season have now been bookended:

    football on your phone in the preseason
    and Eli’s Ron Burgundy mustache barb at the end

    and of course in between the team afforded weekly comic relief

    I wonder how that Super Bowl clock is doing.

    The really weird thing is that as bad as the team has been, I wouldn’t bet against them in a playoff game if they won out and Dallas and Philly collapse.

    That ain’t happening. But I do see signs of Eli coming out of his slump and the defensive line being capable of dominating a game. Way too late, and they are clearly not a dominant team, but it would not shock me at all if they wind up 8-8 when all is said and done.

    •  Nosh.0 says:

      That’s the one aspect we disagree on. While I think the D has the ability to come together and play at a close to elite level (although JPP’s injury hurts that) there’s simply no way this offense can compete against the better teams in the conference.

      I think without anymore personnel changes on the OL we know this unit is good for close to 5 big breakdowns a game, which are at the minimum drive killers, and at the worst, turnovers and game changers.

      Plus Eli is just not comfortable back there and probably won’t be until next season when we have new personnel. Add in the fact that Nicks is not a weapon in his current state and you have a team that just can’t compete with the top their of the league.

      Obviously they have played much better than the 0-6 start we put ourselves in, and have come together. But I think we’ve pretty much seen this current rosters peak, which to me is a middle of the road team.

      Teams like NO, SEA, CAR, and even Detroit and SF, on the right day would probably roll us.

  4.  Nosh.0 says:

    I’ll say this for us though, we got some heart. Which after the disasters in KC and Carolina is nice to see, and gives us hope for next year. But the current talent level just isn’t where it needs to be.

  5.  James Stoll says:

    While I would characterize our relative competitiveness far more negatively than Nosh does, I agree with his bottom line assessment: we don’t have the offensive talent to compete with the better team’s in the league; and we will certainly get our chance to prove that the game after next.
    That said, this coming weekend is our last best chance to keep the season alive. We play the Chargers and that looks like a very winnable game. Philly plays Detroit and although it’s in Philly, Detroit certainly has the horses to take down the Iggles.
    Dallas travels to Chicago and that looks like a coin toss game as well.
    We thus may wake up next Tuesday with all the same misgivings over the shortcomings of the team and yet one game closer to our rivals.
    Then will come Seattle.
