Why Manning ruled out KC...

Apparently, teams were pre-qualified by Manning prior to any visits. When Condon was contacted by the 12 teams, he told them that the contract Manning was starting at was 5 for 90 and going from there.

Teams either had to say in or out at that point.

From there, Manning narrowed his selections.

I was told this from someone yesterday, and then today on Twitter, a great guy to follow, Andrew Brandt commented on it as well. I was leery about what I was told, but this guy confirmed it.

The Chiefs never got past the pre-qualified stage.

Seattle did, but when Manning narrowed his choices, the roster had no appeal.

Just thought I'd post this since we had a lot of discussions about why the Chiefs never got a face to face.

Pretty much. That's a lot of money/time for a 36 year old QB with a surgically repaired neck. Let's hope it blows up in their faces.

Yeah me too. No way Peyton is playing in five years so I hope the Broncos had to make it 90 million guaranteed

So all of Manning's talk like it's for the love of playing QB, the guy didn't necessarily care about best fit, he cared about who was paying the most initially.

I think having Helton and friends around in Denver helped seal the deal.

Money would be the only reason you choose denver over SF or Tenn.
Man, I hope he gets his football career ended, not where it will affect him later in life, just enough to end football playing for that vile team.

So how many donk fans turn on teblow?

You are absolutely correct !

What I posted on 3/12-

Killer my man, I hate to say it but I don't think we were ever in the running as far as Peyton was concerned. But the Chiefs FO had to make the PR attempt to appease the fan base.

Think about it, why would Peyton want to come to an organization ran by a paranoid control freak GM who makes his players feel like they have to walk on eggshells and potentially be 'bugged'? Also, don't underestimate Peyton's ego to a little sensitivity about playing for a head coach "who had his number" the majority of the time. The sports media can stand back and laugh at the Jets and Miami FO fiascos right now but our Chiefs FO is not that far behind IMHO. No way in hell Pioli lets Jeff Saturday or Reggie Wayne be part of the deal or pays Peyton what he wants.

Everyone knows everyone in the NFL and has worked with everyone at some point or another and everyone talks. I assure you as sad as it is to say that the Chiefs were and never have been on Peyton's radar from the get go. Take that to the bank

Living out here in Denver, many don't realize the connections that Peyton has out here and one of those connections is one of his best friends from his college days Todd Helton who he QB'd with at Tennessee and have remained very close since. PM has come out to Denver several times a year with his family for the past 10yrs plus and stayed with Helton's family at Helton's ranch calling Denver and Helton's ranch "home away from home". He loves it out here. Don't underestimate that connection especially from a family perspective. Brandon Stokely who lives here as well is very close to Manning who Peyton wanted to see while he was here during that 30hr visit actually went to a nearby park where Stokely lived and they threw the football around 'incognito'(how that's done I don't know?).

Peyton and Elway are fairly close as well and respect each other immensely thus the kindred spirit of playing the QB pos winning SBs. Don't underestimate that. Also unlike Pioli, Elway told Manning whatever personnel you need to bring in it's a done deal.

With the yr long ongoing friction between Haley and Pioli and Pioli's alleged 'bugging' of Haley along with Pioli's reputation and couple that with Peyton's home away from home connections in Denver the Chiefs weren't even a thought in PM mind

sour grapes.

Your weak ass front office didn't want to pay Manning $18m a year, but it went a head and paid Cassel $16m a year?

The Broncos essentially stole Manning.

63/6 is 16 million a year?

Get ****ing lost.

I've said it many times in this thread you dumb **** that I'd be thrilled with Peyton.

Stole? Yeah, if you think so.

Too bad they can't steal offensive talent to matter.

Cassel got $16m the first year, Manning is getting $18m the first year.

Why wouldn't you think Denver is the best fit for Manning. What insight into being the best fit do you have that Manning doesn't?
