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?
