It was reported this summer that the two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks would provide analysis in a simulcast of the original ESPN broadcast. Pretty much everyone was excited to see what they had to offer.

Manning sure won’t make many fans in the Vegas area with this prediction. But in reality, this iteration of the Raiders really shouldn’t come close to sniffing .500. Just look at our season predictions.
