But at what price? The salary he commands mean you have to sacrifice the ability to resign players like Bowman and other important pieces of the team. It also means Harbaugh has to deviate from his offensive philosophy so that Manning can play his style. Would their egos be able to coxist?
And would we have a chance to win it all this year? Sure. But those chances diminish every year thereafter because of the salary cap constraints and as Manning ages he's going to be less and less effective. And his neck could go at any time. The way this team is built right now they have a chance to get better every single year and I think I like that better.
funny. lots of alex smiths threads around here were locked and restarted because posters were told" we need to move forward". I guess people can post whatever they want to post but like las vegas willy said. Its over can we move forward please and stop revisiting a useless past?
.. and I always felt that there were too many issues in the way of Manning ever joining the Niners. The cost is too great... the mobility that Jim and Greg want for their scheme... the control that Jim wants vs what control Peyton would want... the injury concerns...
So NO... I don't see Manning as a better fit.. at all.. and this is such a beaten horse that could do nothing but further invoke the QB insults that help to divide this forum and cause discord among the inmates.
