You guys are nuts. Denver was never in this thing. It was a mirage.

That's exactly the way I see it. I think it's a ruse. And if it isn't, why aren't they on a plane to NC?

Not only does SF not have the space to guarantee an injured old QB some cash, but even an incentive laced contract would screw up their very real SB chances in the following years. A big sell out for one shot with such a young talented team.

On a cap scale, the niners are a zero and the Broncos are a 10

Who said anything about talent? This is about cap space. The Niners wouldn't appear to have nearly enough to match what Den or Ten can do.

Well, Elway has his template if needed. Replace "Kolb" and "Skelton" with Tebow....

5:10 pm Cardinals official statement regarding their failed attempt at Manning: "...acquiring Peyton Manning is no longer an option for us..Since the end of last season, we made it very clear that our plan was to head into 2012 with Kevin Kolb and John Skelton, let the process play out and like at every position go with the quarterback who gives us the best chance to win...Obviously something very unique and unexpected presented itself."

Is this the part where you tell me that if everything would have been perfect for the Chiefs, they'd have won the division and gone on to the Superbowl? (instead of finishing in last place and losing their best player to free agency?)

No it's not. I'm sure Manning would take relatively the same amount to play for a real contender.

Nice deflection.

If this is truly about money SF isn't a real candidate. But if there's even the slightest bit of interest on Manning's part of winning another SB, he's headed to SF.

Or he could play in Denver and risk his neck behind that terrible OL, throwing to no names. Tough decision.

So by your definition Chiefs aren't contenders... Good to know how you really feel.

Tom Condon: Okay, Peyton. The Chiefs would like a visit.

Peyton:

Condon: No. Really, Peyton.

Peyton: Okay, Tom. I want to keep this serious.

Condon: I had you going there for a minute.

Peyton: Yeah. That was a good one.

Am I to deduce that our collection of stooges have left NC with neither Peyton nor a contract? Fantastic work gents. Good thing we brought pizza boy along. Slap*****. Coffee is for closers.

Steve Young on ESPN on his former 49ers team: "They know they're the best answer for Peyton Manning...that's why they'll probably land him."

With Manning we would be.

Unfortunately I'm pretty sure out FO is too stupid to let him have the control he wants.
