Alex Smith > Peyton Manning
OK lets think about this. Alex is young and mobile, he has proved himself a team leader and is well respected by other players. He is highly intelligent and appears committed to improving. His HC is a known qb developer. Smith has the best years of his career ahead of him.
Peyton is a great qb. He is 35 years old and may possibly never play again.
We can't afford them both.
Had we been able to pick up Manning say two years ago, it would have been worth breaking the bank for him. Now? No, smacks too much of the OJ Simpson trade. Besides, I want to see how good Harbaugh can make Smith.
