Eli Manning, Peyton Manning Star in New DirecTV Fantasy Football Rap Video

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and his older brother, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, have done it again. The duo recently teamed up for yet another incredible DirecTV video, this time portraying rap stars in a new "Fantasy Football Fantasy" hip hop video that also features retired New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath, Jets running back Chris Johnson and, of course, Archie Manning.

Although the "Fantasy Football Fantasy" rap may not be as catchy as the "Football on Your Phone" jingle, there's no denying that the video itself is another masterpiece courtesy of the Manning brothers. After all, how many times do you get a chance to see Eli dressed down in baggy camo pants, bling and a crooked hat while spitting rhymes?

Of the duo, Eli — whose rap name is "Elite" — is clearly the better of the two rappers and will undoubtedly pay dearly for it in the locker-room. But, again, it's another chief example of Eli's lighter side and a reason why so many of his teammates love him.

Other "Fantasy Football Fantasy" cameos: Justin Push, Chris Snee and Will Beatty.

    They can’t need the money. So they must be doing it just for the humiliation.

      No question. If I were in their shoes, id like to think it would be no different. Why do another tough guy Under Armour type of commercial when you can do something is destined to bring laughs and lift spirits in both fans as well as in the locker room. You cant be above humiliation when you yourself are a known prankster. Revel in your inner nerd while its fashionable ;)

    They are very funny on these. I think Eli outdid Peyton again.

  3.  Kettles78 says:

    it is good to see that despite Eli getting paid really well, he is still able to keep it street.

    Glad to see he and Peyton can have fun like this and even gave some of their Oline some show in the commercial. At least I think that was them

    Keep on Keeping it 100 Eli and stay a top the food chain

    After reviewing the game again — Is it me or is Randle as dumb as a rock. Two options and he still screws up – Same w JJ.*(Back shoulder 1st play) –
    What does Eli have to tell these guys “Go out to the second sewer plate turn around and I will hit you on 3″?

    •  Krow says:

      Wasn’t this offense supposed to be simpler to learn than the Gilbride Gordian Knot? How come everyone on the team looks completely befuddled?

      •  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

        Some of these guys could not crack 60 on the Otis exam.

        •  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

          Randall would go to the 4th sewer plate, JJ would turn on 2 and Robinson Who knows what he would do= Probably run to 1st base.

          •  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

            This is the result of having our athletes take “the history of toe jam as a major and Naval lint in our world as a minor”

          •  rlhjr says:


            Perhaps after the rein of Gilbride the terrible the holdovers are suffering from post dramatic distress syndrome.

            More likely we’re dealing with morons.

  5.  Kettles78 says:

    I heard on the radio somebody saying that they think the reason the Giants offense looks the way it does at this point is because they are working on particular facets of the game. It could be footwork or whatever they said but I would love to know what it is and if they feel like they are accomplishing what they want because to my untrained eye, I haven’t seen much in the way of a passing game and the run game has been a bit inconsistent with the starters.

    Looking forward to this weeks game

    •  Krow says:

      Maybe they’re simulating confusion to lull the rest of the NFL into a false sense of confidence. Muahhahahahaaaaaaa such evil genius.

      •  Kettles78 says:

        You may be on to something. Maybe its like the old Pernell Whitaker apprach from boxing? Acting like your dazed and confused but you really are in control?

      •  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

        Hey. Doesn’t Nassib look like Number 2 (I’m not talking abt depth chart)

  6.  James Stoll says:

    this year’s DirecTV offering not as good as last year
    hopefully this year’s giant offense will perform inversely to last’s

    Public Service Announcement:

    This site has too many intelligent posters to ever have to deal with anything that resembles “The Green Bay offense does [x]”

    The players are 100% different. The offensive coordinators are different. The head coaches are different. The division is different.

    Our OC used to be their TE coach? So what? Some things may be similar, but he’s probably his own man. And oh yeah, he reports to the biggest control freak in the business.

    So if Coughlin wants 12 tight ends and 8 fullbacks, McAdoo’s going to have to deal.

  8.  rlhjr says:

    The ability to laugh at one’s self is golden.

    The offensive line IS a concern that can only be fix via drafting or expensive FA signing. I vote draft because the nucleus looks good. These youngsters need to grow together.

    The tight end position is unfortunate. If not for hubris concerning Robinson the position could’ve been a strength. Donnell will be fine in time.
    The two veterans are basically survivable. Robinson is a joke.
    Both Conner and Hynusaur need to be kept. But only if a running game is important. A talented (EBRON) tight end needs to be drafted.

    It looks to me like JPP will get close to his former self. Moore must man up VS the run. An all around DE should be drafted regardless.

    This offense will take most of this season to become second nature to these players. However the team will be offensively hamstrung due to the lack of a left tackle and a hybrid tight end(s) They look like an 8-8 to 7-9 ball club.
    Best case is 9-7 and maybe a wild card. Will reassess after the fourth regular season game.

    •  skinnydoogan says:

      “Robinson is a joke” isn’t he the JPP of TE’s?

      •  skinnydoogan says:

        Just kidding rlhjr….

        •  skinnydoogan says:

          actually I like what Dirt said, he is the JPP of “nothing”

          •  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

            Or as I said last week He is the JPP without the J.

            •  BBWC says:

              I think the problem with Robinson is the same problem with guys like Randle, Hosley and couple other players on the Giants. They are physically gifted but dumber than a box of rocks!

              •  BBWC says:

                I think that’s why the Giants drafted the way that they did this year “intelligent team captains”. They grew tired of the stupidity! A guy can have all the talent in the world but if he’s not doing what he’s suppose to when he’s suppose to, what good is he?

            •  rlhjr says:

              That would be piss poor?? Lol

  9.  Dirt says:

    @RVacchianoNYDN: Victor Cruz is unconcerned about not catching a pass through two preseason games. He says not much of the offense has been unveiled so far.
