This isn't some disgruntled dime-a-dozen position player, it's a QB. As it was, there was virtually no interest in him from around the league. It's nice you have an excuse for it, but no one wanted him and the team that traded for him is already putting him out there in different roles than QB.
The fact that you'd even draw a comparison to Brees is silly. But besides that I guess in your world the Cards were idiots for telling Manning they had to know that day. They should've just thrown away 8 million in cap space or whatever it was and still tried to sign Manning.
