3:26 pm Mike Klis is correcting the financial figures he cited earlier: My previously reported contract parameters for P. Manning were too low. Broncos, Titans, 49ers working off his old five-year, $90 mil deal. The old Manning deal paid him $26.4 million in 2011, even though he never took a snap. He was to get $35.4 mil this yr, but did not. His deal called for him to make _ gulp! _ $61.4 mil over 2 yrs; $69 mil over 3 yrs. Broncos understand the parameters. They're in.

For the right price I'm down with that plan!

I'm pretty freaking sure this has more to do with Condone than Manning. Condone is making sure it's all about the money.

That doesn't make sense to me either. I thought I read the Colts would take a $19 million hit this year under Peyton's old contract.

The Drive 3 is in progress right now. All that's left is for Elway to helicopter for the first down and seal this deal.

How can the niners take on these numbers??

They can't. Their lure is how much further along their team is than either us or the Titans. The real question is what has Elway told Manning his plan is that has him still listening.

this is probably why teams are lowballing him. They see visions of Matt Cassel dancing around...

It wouldn't surprise me to find out he was spending a lot of time reviewing tape to see what each team really has. It is what I would do if I were him.

Maybe I'm missing something, but is that really talking about $30 per year?

I guess with a melon of that size it probably takes a considerable amount of time and effort to pull it out of his ass.

Exactly.

How many people even knew who matt flynn was before that game?
And for those that knew him at LSU, how many knew what team he was on?



Color me black and call me kitty I will roast myself it we even sniff flynn

Exactly. So, the question is whether or not Manning would give the 49ers a discount because they are the better team. Indications have been that Manning is not going to work for any discounts. So, I don't think the '9ers will ultimately be major players in this. I think Harbaugh took the visit as leverage with Smith.
