It is worrisome that it's the niners. But I think the media assumed a decision sooner than manning was assuming a decision. This is manning. The most prepared and thorough player in the nfl. He's articulate and studies/breakdown everything. A long time for a decision was what I expected last week. There were 12 teams that contacted him. The niners were one of those 12. It's not like manning just found out they we're interested. Niners just kept it shady for Alex smiths sake. I don't see them putting up 90 million at all. Now If manning takes far less to play for them thats another story.
