Cooper Manning cooks up laughs with Baker Mayfield in Fox NFL baking skit
Cooper Manning may not have had the NFL career of his brothers Peyton and Eli, but he’s killing it on his Fox NFL Show. In his season finale episode, posted Sunday, Jan. 20, he goes head to head with Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, named Rookie of the year by the Professional Football Writers of America.
Cooper — eldest son of legendary Saints quarterback Archie Manning, and the older brother of former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning — is host of “The Manning Hour” on Fox Sports.
“Today’s guest is one of the biggest stars in NFL,” Manning begins, jabbing with raised eyebrow, “biggest? Baker Mayfield. And he’s right where every star wants to be during championship weekend. Not playing, on my show.”
They tease a fictional upcoming show, “Baking with Baker.” Then Manning instructs Mayfield: “Hold this egg. Remember, everything the Manning brothers touches turns to gold.”
Mayfield jabs back: “Maybe the other brothers.” Ouch!
They continue the repartee, with Manning giving Mayfield grief over the Cleveland Browns’ record this season. And when he asks Mayfield to “grab the nuts,” Mayfield demurs. “NFL doesn’t really like it when I do that.”
By the way, Mayfield, a two-time walk-on college quarterback who went on to win the Heisman Trophy while at the University of Oklahoma, also won the Manning Award, the only national award that takes a quarterback’s postseason play into account.
As NOLA.com previously reported, Cooper Manning was a broadcast journalism major at Ole Miss, so he’s always felt comfortable behind a microphone. After meeting with Jamie Horowitz, president of FOX Sports National Networks, he received a chance to host his own brief segment — calling it “the Cooper Manning Hour minus 58 minutes” — as part of FOX’s Sunday NFL coverage.
“I kind of wanted to do it just to see if I could do it,” Manning said. “FOX at the beginning, I’m not sure anybody believed I could get the players to do it, and so I was like, all right, if I can’t, then it won’t work, but if I can, let’s try it.”
