The only thing they can do is back the truck up and pay him the most.
Manning has to call around some players in the league and ask them what it's like to play at Candlestick.

Tennessee, winning record, already considers him a homegrown hero, and the owner is willing to write a blank check. Even the governor is begging him to sign.

San Francisco. Final four last year. One botched play from the super bowl. willing to set aside its own young star QB.

And this is for an aging QB with serious injury issues who wasn't able to play a down last year.

Tease, tease, tease.

Now looking like the girl from Ipanema.


Not bad, Mr. Colston. Your job is done and Peyton can do whatever he wants.

Expect many more clients in the near future.
Agree with all but one point. His agent is Tom Condon

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.

2d place is Denver, since he can go nuts with Tebow in a year or two.

Broncos are going to lose out to San Fran. Elway screwed the whole FA pooch by swinging and missing at manning. Looks like he may have totally screwed the whole offseason.

Bowlen should go recruit some worthwhile FO folks. Maybe fly out to Baltimore to recruit Ozzie.

Why so they can come in and not over pay like right now!

But not addressing DT and Bunkley making visits is a valid concern.

They need to sign Bunkley BEFORE the NO visit. If they let him slip they are
completely incompetent.

You may be singing a different tune when Warren is cut/on IR again and backs are running for 200 yards on Vickerson and McBean.

Just saying like, not re-signing Bunkley would be criminal at this point given the crap that's left out there unless you'd like to see Shaun Rogers or Albert Haynesworth steal off another franchise.

Staying away from the early part of FA is fine for teams like the Steelers, Ravens, Giants and Packers simply because their depth players are far better than our current starters at most positions.

Yeah valid points. Meeting in middle of overspending and not spending at all would be nice.

Both Grubbs and Nicks had they been signed would have instantly became our best interior olineman.

Finnegan at CB would have been nice. Instantly he would have been 2nd best dback on the team.

Lets see if they make some moves after we lose out on Manning. But doing nothing not my idea of using the cap space wisely. Sure we shouldnt just blow it all but i thought Broncos would go for at least 1 or 2 starting caliber guys.

They aren't even trying to spend anything for their most important centerpiece. Bunkley should not be a problem for this much cap space.

Agreed. DL is going to be a real problem. Bunk visiting Saints. Jones signing a 1-year deal with Seattle. We missed on the Miami DL (who I think would have been a great get). Who else is left? And we are completely tipping our hand in the draft. If we don't sign any DL players it will be obvious that is what we are looking for in the draft.

no, SPEND because you have 40 million in open cap space and a team that desperately needs improvement in a lot of areas.

Also, I think we are out for Manning unless we break the bank. The 49ers jumping in changed everything. Heck, if I was Manning I would play for SF and take less $$$. I hope Elway doesn't grossly overpay trying to compensate for our lack of talent compared to SF. It's a shame we put all our eggs in one basket and if we don't get Manning we have nothing to show for the cap space we have.

And remember. Next year there is a salary cap floor. We have to spend a certain amount. So next year we will have to spend $$$ (and who knows if the FA talent will be inferior). This is turning into a mess.

Outside of Bunkley there isn't one good DT there, we shoulda had him tied up before FA but once again we refused to pay market value.

If the Broncos don't get Manning, I expect them to go into next season with $30 million worth of cap money unspent.
