So why didn't we land Manning, again?
 
Clark Hunt signaled what he was capable of in 2009, when he hooked the biggest fish in several year's worth of GM markets in Pioli.

Of course, that didn't work out, but it was evidence that Clark gets his man when he wants to get his man, he gets his man.

So why didn't we land Manning, who was clearly the guy Hunt wanted Pioli to acquire last offseason?

I've heard several people suggest that Pioli was the dude who held that up.

What do we have to go on, there? What's the real story of why Peyton never considered KC, when it's clear KC has an owner who always bags his man?

Don't care. It's time to create our own glory rather than live off someone else's washed up scraps.

Eh, we'll never know for sure. Frankly I think Peeoli had his tongue so far up Cassel's ass that we never strongly pursued him.

Oh, and the ****ing Peeoli filter is stupid.

I don't think an owner can necessarily lure a player as easily as they can persuade a coach or front office guy.

Because ***** is a dick. End of story.

Yeah, this.

Time to move on. Clark is by far making amends & making up for what went wrong. It's time to just move on. Glad we didn't get PM didn't want in the first place.

Lets get GENO :)

Supposedly after the Broncos were done thrashing us after the last game of the season, Clark asked Peyton point blank why he didn't come to KC, and Peyton told him the reason was Pioli.

I agree with cd cox, who give's a rat's ass?

Greatest choker ever.

Why didn't Manning land in SanFran or Tennessee?


Elway. Winners like hanging out and giving each other knob jobs.

Sorter 01-13-2013 09:40 PM

No longer want Manning.

This. If we land manning we would be looking at another year of Pioli and the funky bunch. Revolution would have been delayed and Brian DaBoll would be up for a head coaching job.
