OK, now before you say how ignorant i am for saying that not landing manning is a good thing, Let me explain my reasoning behind why i believe this.
First off yes we were one game/two fumbles away from going to the SB. If we had Peyton Manning during that game , could he have prevented Kyle Williams from Fumbling?? NO ( some will argue). Of course Singing Manning would vastly improve our chances of Winning a Super Bowl, but with a price tag of that kind of money would our organization and fans really want to risk the future decade of the 49ers Winning ways if he got hurt or didn't end up being all that he is hyped up to be after not playing in 2011? The Niners had to take a look at him and i am glad they did, he chose to go to Denver and win them a SB haha i really doubt that. On the other hand the Niners are on the verge of being a playoff contender for years and years to come even with Smith under QB!! that just goes to show how great of a team we have put together, and will have for years to come. So when i say that not getting manning was a good thing, I am saying that saving all that money will ensure that we are able to keep our Valuable Players, and keep this Awesome team together for quite some time. Also we have other options at QB, obviously not nearly as good as Peyton , but we do have options as well a genius Coaching Staff and a FO willing to pick up the tab to ensure we remain a winning franchise. I would have been very excited and thrilled to have Manning sing with the Niners , But I am also Very happy to be able to look forward to years of Niner's success without him.
