end of story
Out of all the posts... This holds the most truth
Because you didn't read any other ones?
Because the whole contract thing doesnt solidify anything.
No team offered contracts technically, tenn and den threw out numbers and front office jobs desperately
9ers did not take their name out of the hat of finalist.
Alex had a contract on the table before the Manning fiasco started, so that alone makes susweel's post wrong right there.
Secondly, I'll repeat in case you missed it. While technically no contracts were offered, perameters were discussed.
Answer this question......because all others are irrelevant:
Do you think the 49ers would have given Manning a 90+ million dollar contract? Better yet, 40 million guaranteed?
The answer is no. So in all likelihood the 49ers were never an option for Manning, despite whatever bulls**t the media was throwing at you. And finally you would believe Harbaugh to be a liar because he said as much.
