Nick Mangold hosts ‘Good Morning Football’

Isn’t it just the best when your favorite NFL players continue to make appearances in the world of sports post-retirement?

Legendary New York Jets offensive lineman Nick Mangold is the total embodiment of this sentiment. While some beloved Jets names like D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Curtis Martin have mostly disappeared into their respective retirements, Mangold is still very much present in the sports world.

Whether it be his new Bud Light Seltzer commercials, his marketing for his personal line of barbecue sauce, or even just engaging with Jets fans on Twitter, Mangold has made it abundantly clear to the NFL world that it won’t be getting rid of him so easily.

Thursday morning served as just another example of this when Mangold joined the cast of NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” as a guest host for the day.

Mangold got his own featured segment on the show called “Pancake Power Hour,” which saw him break down some of the best blocks from across the NFL in Week 9. Not only were his selections top-notch, but the former All-Pro also gave phenomenal analysis to go along with each highlight-reel block.

What’s so great for Jets fans in particular about still getting to see Mangold years after his retirement is the fact that he himself is still a Jets fan. Following a slight remark from GMFB co-host Kay Adams about the Bills getting an easy matchup against Gang Green this week, Mangold jokingly replied, “I’m sitting right here!”

Following the show, Adams tweeted out a photo depicting her and Mangold standing side by side at Rockefeller Center in 2013.

As much conflict and disagreement as there is in the world today, there is at least one thing everybody can likely agree on: the more Nick Mangold content, the better.
