Not sure why since everyone assumes they'd be favored to win it all with Manning. Maybe he declined an invite to visit their facilities or something. Or maybe they really do have a cap barrier they can't overcome.
I don't see any way in hell the Niners can come anywhere even close to the neighborhood the Broncos and Titans can offer.
