Getting Manning is a possibility only. Elway will probably ask him straight up if SF is involved. Then Make him our top offer and say take it or leave it, we don't have time for more "play time".
If he doesn't do this then he is not a closer.
The longer the FO team stays in NC the better our chances, but if Manning hasn't signed when they leave, it will be over for Denver. Elway knows that.
Taking ourselves out, leaves Tenn ( and maybe SF ) in and hurts Mannings chances to drive the price up for them. Let other teams jump in and get dissed.
