Default Jeff Saturday chose Packers because we didn't really want him

http://www.itsalloverfatman.com/bron...y-lard-3-25-12

OUCH

Manning REALLY wanted him, but it was a case of us not really showing that same commitment. So we're stuck with JD over a vet center who would have been HUGE for us and for Manning because we didn't show any true desire to sign him.

I get we may want to stick with the youth we have but in this situation signing Saturday would have been big. Damn shame to hear.

The post is still a valid topic. We chose to not go after a clear upgrade at center and someone Manning really wanted. What does this say about JD, etc, given how poorly he was ranked these last two years.

He was also wishy washy on coming back or retiring and we don't need him at 80%.

Read the article.

"I told him I don't think the Broncos wanted me as much as he did."

Also Saturday called up Manning to tell him his decision before anyone else.

Maybe he's seen enough of Manning's BS to know to stay away.. lol

If so that would be appropriate.. Elway Fox and Manning seem to all deserve each other.. all likely are great at blaming other people for their own mistakes.

Or it could just be more follow promises of spending money from the broncos brain trust..

I am over not getting Saturday, we saw what happens when you go after old C with Weigman. Hopefully Walton can get the job done in year 3.

I thought you were on Jets boards telling Jet fans that their new backup QB is a freak of nature never envisaged before by the likes of lowly NFL fans?

It is apparent EFX made no promises to PM regarding Colts FA's. That actually is a good thing. Overpaying for old & possibly worn out players just to placate a prized FA catch is really the sign of a weak FO, when you think about it.

Case in point, I'd much rather have Dreessen and Tamme than a Dallas Clark that might be near the end.

You cannot blame him for going to play with the Packers. Did he even come to Denver for a visit?

I wanted Saturday a lot but, man he got a much bigger contract then I was thinking he would get for his age. I hope we have a plan B that doesn't mean keeping our guy.

Two weeks ago the mantra was "Manning will bring all the FAs to Denver." Now it's "bah we didn't need them anyway, we're smarter than that."

Just interesting, is all.

It definitely does say a lot though. It's evidence that Manning doesn't have the power here that so many thought he would get. If he had the pull that was theorized Saturday would be a Bronco.

He wasn't overpaid though. It was a bargain actually given he was a top 5 center last year.

Jeff Saturday's two-year deal in Green Bay is worth $7.75 million, including $4 million this season.

I don't think Manning always blames others for his own mistakes.
