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 ***** to acquire last offseason?
I've heard several people suggest that ***** 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?
Because he left Pioli in charge of getting the Man and when he asked his agent what kind of $ said QB was going to want Mr. Pioli said no Thanks.
Thats where it started and ended. If we would have put up bucks maybe Peyton would have come in for a tour, maybe not. But he wasn't gonna play for Pioli peanuts.
Just my opinion btw.
