Heard on KNBR this morning that the 49ers may pursue Peyton Manning. Not sure it makes sense and what that means for Alex Smith. Smith is a free agent this year.
That would be a crazy move. Are they going to get a Superbowl victory in the two years Peyton may have left ? Harbaugh has brought Alex around simply by believing in him. Get him a decent receiver, or two and stick with him. My humble opinion.
The 49rs are right there... get a decent punt returner and you're in....
I don't think it would be a good move. You have someone to throw the ball, get him someone to throw the ball to besides Vernan Davis; Crabtree is not a #1 WR.
I think it's a gamble. It could definitely payoff. Manning is far better then Alex Smith will ever be, but Manning could get hurt and then Smith will be all upset that he was replaced and may leave or not try as hard.
forget Peyton on 49ers. Let Peyton go to St Louis with their new coach
lets just hope for Peytons sake he is healthy enough to even take to the field again in this lifetime.
Agreed. Peyton's neck problem is the great unknown.
On ESPN they said that he isn't nearly at full strength yet and no one can predict if/when the neck nerve damage will heal. Since the NFL is becoming more cautious about permanent injuries, I don't expect to see him play again.
San Fran is on track and they don't need a Q-back controversy to muck things up. As for Peyton, he's done it all so why play yourself into the ground ala Farve?
san fran is the smartest choice peyton for smith and a couple picks! This is wild but dont forget dallas and the redskins have rich owners.
Peyton is unlikely to play again.
The 49ers have an outstanding team, dumping Smith would be a terrible idea.
peyton has money and a ring he could retire and become an actor. SNL here comes peyton lol.

A lot of so-called 'experts' are saying that if Peyton Manning wins the Super Bowl on Sunday he will be considered the best ever at his position. I never got to see some of the greats play because I'm too young, but I'm starting to think that Peyton could be the best ever. I've never seen anybody...

While I think it's a longshot and it's probably not a good thing to put Alex Smith through if you don't get Peyton, but it sounds like the 49ers have seen him workout and have given him a physical.

All I can say is that if the reports on ESPN are true, then it does confirm my beliefs that the Broncos have NEVER believed that Tim Tebow was their "guy" for the future. And having a guy like Peyton Manning, does seem like a logical step to distance themselves from Tebow mania...

I've been watching and playing American Football for most of my life and have seen many a quarterback play the game. I can honestly say that Peyton Manning is the best I've ever seen...bar none! And I'm not even a Colts fan...unfortunately I'm a Redskin fan believe it or not we do still...

I am a big Peyton Manning fan and I would like to see the Broncos do well this year. I just do not know if they have enough talent around Peyton to be competitive. This reminds me when Joe Montana went from the 49ers to the Chiefs. This will be interesting to see how Manning will cap his...

Out of all the teams in the nfl, which one do you believe would not only prove to be the best fit for Manning, but also gives him a chance to possibly win a title.
