Agreed. Harbaugh said publicly he was elite and the QBOF. "Alex is our quarterback". Everyone, including other teams GM's thought it was a foregone conclusion he would be back as the starter. Even Alex said, the day before Free Agency, there were just some details to work out. If he would have known they were going to look at Manning do you supposed he would have sat around. Does anyone here seriously think that Balke didn't know Manning was interested before last Tuesday's start of free agency? If he was elite and QBOF why did they give him a lowball contract compared to others even less talented, one that made the point that he is keeping the seat warm for Kap. This isn't being truthful or fair to him. Don't think for a minute the other players won't take note of this.
