For 13 NFL seasons, Jeff Saturday and Peyton Manning were virtually inseparable as the center-quarterback duo for the Indianapolis Colts.
While Manning is just beginning his second season with the Denver Broncos, Saturday — who played last season with the Green Bay Packers before retiring from the NFL — is a newly minted ESPN analyst.
Earlier this week, as a guest on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike, Saturday was asked to weigh in on a number of recent stories, including the NFL’s updated unsportsmanlike conduct rules; the possibility that Saturday would return to the field this season; and the Manning brothers’ hilarious music video for Direct TV.
His answers are captured in the video above. Look and listen for more of Saturday on NFL Live, SportsCenter and other ESPN platforms this season.
