The new Season of “Eli’s Places” is out now on ESPN+ and YouTube and be ready for the laughs. Eli went undercover at Penn State to try out as a walk-on for the football team under his new alter ego, Chad Powers.
Check out the hilarious episode below as Eli shows off his humor and really gets lost in his new character.
You can tell he was having a blast out there in his own element. I think they could even stretch this Chad powers into a goofy movie if they tried. A modern-day uncle Rico he looked the part. Of course somehow the make up and new face you could argue made Eli look older than what he already is. As a Giants fan I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t get goosebumps seeing him drop back and the great footwork of the 2-time Super Bowl Champion. Something we miss behind Center for us.
It sure has been a treat to see him and Peyton flourish in their post career roles, from own shows to the Monday night alternate broadcast. The Mannings truly have some good personality and sense of humor that has turned long time haters of them into fans. Excited to see as media expands more former players get chances and shows to show off their fun side.
