The duo was filming a Frito-Lays World Cup advertisement, and during the breaks, they hung out bragging about their respective sports. The former quarterback took this opportunity to have an American football talk with Beckham and asked if he needed to teach him to pass the pigskin.

Well, to everyone’s surprise, he didn’t have to because Beckham was already nailing it. He threw the ball from a much wider distance. He threw his first successful pass from around 30 yards and impressed the quarterback who said, “That’s good!” Although the ball wobbled in the air for quite some time, Sheriff was pleased to approve his pass.

“Good grip! I like the high release!” Manning said. He also mentioned that he had countered similar issues with wobbling during his playing days. Well, it doesn’t matter anymore because he has always been a perfectionist.

In an illustrious career of 18 seasons, the quarterback clinched two Super Bowl titles and five MVP awards. He got inducted into the pro-football Hall of Fame in 2021. No more specifications are necessary to explain his career achievements.

One of the iconic marks Manning left behind is those wobbly throws. Although he admitted to having launched them occasionally, it brought him great success. “It doesn’t matter what the ball looks like, it’s always in the right spot,” said his former teammate and late WR Demaryius Thomas.

“It’s like catching tissue paper. It’s so easy to catch, it really doesn’t matter if it’s a spiral or wobbly,” he explained in one of the past interviews. Well, these reasons justify the fact that Manning would go as one of the greatest athletes to play this sport.
