During the Cowboys-Giants Monday Night Football game, Eli Manning on the ManningCast poked fun at Russell Wilson by saying the team should have paid their punter $250 million instead (of paying Wilson). The comment was interference to the 49ers-Broncos Sunday Night Football game where the Broncos punter Corliss Waitman punted 10 times. The Broncos ultimately won the game, 11-10.
On Wednesday, Wilson was asked about Manning’s roast and decided to clap back, bringing up the fact that he’s 3-0 against Eli Manning (aka Chad Powers) in his career:
“You talking about Chad Powers? I’m 3-0 against Chad Powers.”
In case you are unaware of the Chad Powers reference, you missed one of the funniest skits in a while as Eli Manning transformed himself into a Penn State college walk-on named Chad. The whole video is downright hilarious, so if you haven’t seen it you won’t regret taking a peak here:
A nice comeback by Russell Wilson but the hope is Wilson and the Broncos can get their offense going on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. If not, Wilson can expect more people to continue to take swipes at him.
