This could easily be resolved by asking Manning if he was contacted by the 9ers. No one has the balls to ask that though, and Manning wouldn't have the sack to answer it.

Or we could just remember they worked him out, and flew several top coaches and their entire medical team to Tennessee to do it.

There are lies.

There are statistics.

"I've said it all along, this 1987 Toyota Corolla is my car," Harbaugh said. "There's no scenario other than this Toyota choosing to sign with another team that I would have considered it not my car. It's time to set the record straight.

"I never planned on choosing the Ferrari. That would be ridiculous. This Corolla is just fine."

Candor would probably have worked best here... It's not like anyone's gonna buy the denial anyway; everyone knows they were chasing Manning. It's totally understandable... and not a diss to Alex Smith... if his team explored the possibility of signing a guy who's among the very best to ever play the position. If they had even a scintilla of a chance of landing Manning, it would have been remiss not to try.

Harbaugh got Alex Smith to play mistake-free football.

We'll see how he responds this year, and whether or not last year was a fluke. If he repeats 2011 in 2012, he's a franchise QB.

"Anytime a guy like Manning becomes available and the future of your QB position isn't set in stone you have to take a look and weigh your options. We just wanted to consider all of the possibilities and examine any way available to improve our team."

How do you mess this up?

I love how he criticizes other people for being phony while making incredibly phony comments.

Remember in Manning Press Conference, Elway quoted Manning as saying he had to call 3 teams to let them know of his decision.

Was there a 3rd mystery team and not SF. Probably not

Harbaugh is a very strange person. He better stay very successful if he wants to stay employed.

Or perhaps Manning would be the class act he always has been and just not answer the "who gives a **** " question.....
