If Pineiro hit the kick, the Bears would win.

Peyton Manning spoke about the Jets General Manager job earlier this week and he discussed another job he’s been linked with this year on Thursday.Manning said he never spoke directly with anyone from the Jets before or after they fired Mike Maccagnan this month Bradley Chubb Broncos Jersey , but he did have conversations with ESPN about joining the booth after Jason Witten decided to return to the Cowboys. Manning turned down their overtures, which leaves Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland as the announcing team.“I talked to the folks,” Manning said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the . “I enjoyed talking to the them. I had great conversation. It wasn’t the right time this year. Maybe it will never be.”Manning didn’t expand on why this year wasn’t the right time for him to take on a broadcasting role, but the answer suggests it’s something he might be open to doing in the future. Many believe that’s also the case for a job running football operations for a team, so it seems likely that Manning’s going to continue to be around the NFL in a significant way whichever path he chooses to follow in the future. The final minutes of Sunday’s game between the Bears and Broncos were filled with wild swings back and forth and it all wound up with Bears kicker Eddy Pineiro on the field to try a 53-yard field goal on the final play of the game. If he missed Von Miller Jersey White , they’d be 0-2 and the football world would be talking about how the Bears keep missing last-second field goal attempts. That’s what brought Pineiro to Chicago as the team traded for him this offseason to be one of the candidates to replace Cody Parkey after his miss in the playoffs last season.It wound up being a long process with several other kickers coming through Chicago before they settled on Pineiro, who made the Bears look good by knocking the field goal through the uprights for a 16-14 road win.“It felt different. This was an emotional kick,” Pineiro said, via “With everything I’ve been through. The whole kicking situation. The Augusta silence. The media, everybody piling on.”Pineiro hit two other field goals on Sunday and is now 4-of-4 on the season.
