Giants’ Saquon Barkley breaks the ManningCast curse: A look at other players and teams being ripped off by the broadcast

When it comes to sports, a lot of players, coaches, and fans are superstitious. They believe that if they wear a certain shirt, or do a specific thing before the match, it will bring good luck to their team.

Besides the same idea, there are also many ‘insults’ in the sports world. Some of the epic curses in the sport are the “Bambino Curse,” when the Red Sox went 86 without winning a world championship after trading Babe Ruth, buffalo bills Curse of the Super Bowl, losing four in a row and Cleveland Browns General curse not to win.

We now have a new epic curse in the NFL – The curse of the “ManningCast”, judging by the evidence, it is very, very truly.

For those unfamiliar with “ManningCast,” the alternate “Monday Night Football” airs with Eli and Peyton Manning as hosts, along with new guests each week.

Since the start of 2021, The Manning Cast has seen some very special star-studded guests, from Charles Barkley to Ray Lewis, Brett Favre, Sue Bird and Snoop Dogg, to name a few. Of the 11 episodes that aired, some of the current NFL players paid homage to the broadcast and it wasn’t for them.

Sure, that’s fun, you can talk about football with two Super Bowl champions and make jokes while you’re doing it, but the game that followed has been damned to any active player featured in “ManningCast.”

Then he enters: Saquon Barkley.

Not only is he a star running backwards on New York GiantsBut he also has the power to break the curse. How did he do it? mascot? some crystals? We may never know, although it was probably a solid game plan, playing with a winable team in Carolina Panthers And a little help from kicker Graham Gano who went 4 for 4, including a game-winning 56-yard boot that helped break the Manning brothers’ juggling.

Now you might be thinking, how serious was this curse before Sakon stepped in to save her? oh it was Grand. Last year, seven active players took part in the show and all seven saw a check in the loss column the following week.

Here’s a look at other players who appeared in “ManningCast” and then got injured in the match after losing the next match, or both:
