All the media speculation hyping up Manning make it seems like he's a hot commodity. He's not. In reality there's only 2 maybe 3 teams who are desperate/serious enough about Manning to go after him. The rest of the other teams who already have some semblance of competent qb play, their GM don't want the headache of paying millions for Manning with unresolved injury and throwing or playing ability.
Some guys can dream their little dream of Manning. He's not going to be here with the Niners.

This. Manning might accept a low base, but he would be dumb to shortchange himself by not asking for big incentives, or something like the $28 million bonus that the Colts decided not to pay this month (but this time he would be smarter by at least getting the new team to pay something if it cut him.)

What value is that to Alex? He's not stupid. He want's more money over the longer period. Everyone knows NFL contracts are easily cut short but whats always at stack is guarenteed money and that guarenteed money is spread out amongst the years.
Now shut up about going after Manning. Its a terrible idea, he is a terrible playoff QB, as I said in another thread if he hadn't won that SB he would be the NFL version of Utah Jazz PG John Stockton, the great point guard in nba history to not win a championship.
So again, stop thinking Manning will be wearing Red & Gold next season because it will never happen.
