I think IF Denver ever wanted a SHOT at Manning they needed to be active in past week.

And that, my friends, is that... No reason for Peyton not to sign with SF and make a SB run.

McClain, Tolbert, Bunkley...there is some low hanging fruit that would make us alot better, still pissed we didn't reengage Hillis to be honest. This has been one frustrating free agency period.

and thousands of bronco fans would be flooding emergency rooms wanting to be admitted for fanatical depression..

I just can't believe there is so much hoopla about this..

He either signs or he does not..

I had suggested SFO when he was dumped by IND.. Maybe more logic than we did, so did PHX and MIA until they dumped marshall..

Now TEN is the sentimental favorite..

I'm not holding my breath and if he signs well so be it if he does not I'm not losing any sleep and we can go on about getting better via the draft..

Patience Grasshoppers..

We can sign all three of those guys and I doubt it really moves the needle.

Let me add that I really do not think he wants to go up against his brother EXCEPT in the superbowl..

Winner take all at that point..

Patience for what? This is not some master plan the pleebs cant see. If they don't sign PM, its an epic fail of an FA period. We're a team with A LOT of holes that was VERY lucky to be 8-8 last year.

Nice move by the 49ers. As for PM heres how it boils down.

If Manning wants a clear path to the SB he should choose the 49ers, does he want that pressure? He might you never know.

If he wants a challenge with a coaching staff & front office he likes he should pick the Broncos

If he wants a challenge with familiarity of the are and be the "hometown hero" he should pick the Titans, does he wanna stick to the Colts fans twice a year by beating them down? I don't know about that one.

I think its anyone's game, but if Peyton isn't going to shy away from the pressure he should go to the 49ers. They will be Superbowl favorites and if they don't reach the SB it will be viewed as a failure. The media attention there will be insane also, remember hes coming from a town like Indy. Coach Harbaugh will likely clash with Manning both of them are fiery guys who want to run sh*t so if they don't have a great season year one or two its probably not going to end well. Lots of things working for 49ers and some work against it.

yes, Manningham is the proverbial straw that broke the EFX back... the feces is truly bonafide with this signing.

I would be shocked if Manning chose the Broncos now. I just don't see why unless the Broncos offered him 25 mil. per year.

Given their stunning absence of any moves thus far that might just be their plan. Or Bowlen's broke and hoarding cash before the spending floor starts.

If he is a Titan I bet his salary is closer to 30 than 20. I only see sf getting a discount.

While some in the Manning camp have suggested a decision would come by Tuesday, Manning hasn’t stated that himself to teams, sources said, and teams are waiting patiently to hear back from him following his workouts…

Manning hasn’t entered into contract negotiations with the final teams, sources said, and officials with those teams figure that Manning, if and when he chooses where he wants to play, will directly contact the team to let them know he wants to proceed, and then the expectation is Condon will take over negotiations.

“There is a very small circle involved in this,” said one source with knowledge of the situation. “It may really just be Peyton, his father and his wife.”

Manning has told teams he expects to be able to participate in organized team activities this spring, and, with six months or so before the season starts, his health is becoming less and less of a concern.

Maybe Adams, Bowlen and York should just create a cootie catcher with each team's name on it. Bring Manning in and tell him to pick a number.

The entire process is getting annoying. It's not like Manning is 26, healthy and picking a city to live in for 10 years. He'll play for 2 or 3 years tops. It's not like his wife doesn't have enough cash to fly back and forth between whatever city he signs with and wherever she wants to go.
