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.
According to ESPN, Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman were very impressed!
He will also work out today (Saturday) for the Titans and his decision is out by Monday!
I think it was a bad idea. Of course Peyton is a much better quarterback than Alex could ever hope to be, however, 13-3 isn't so bad. With the additions on offense Alex could have a great season. Instead the organization treats him like the ugly step child once again.
I'm trying to picture this one. Moss is not known as a great student of the game. Crabtree and Davis have both had their "be team player" issues. I wonder which one of those guys would particpate in Manning's famous "stay after practice and do some extra work" rituals with him. Would Manning be able to exert his will over those guys and turn them into anything similar to what he had in Indy?
Great for the 49ers if they can get him, but you're right that they'd better be careful not to alienate Alex Smith if their effort falls flat!
I think that Peyton will join the Titans, at first I was thinking he will be with Miami. He will not join 49rs bec he will be in the same conf with his bro
I was sold on him signing with the Titans, which I think he still may, but you have to admit that San Fran looks really attractive now with Moss, Manningham, and Vernon Davis, plus Frank Gore in the backfield. If it doesn't happen though, Harbaugh is in trouble with Alex Smith, who is in Miami as we speak.
Peyton decided to be with the Broncos according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN! 90M for 5 years! Tebow is going to be traded!
Hmmppphhh, I don't like this one, not a fan of Broncos but I feel bad for Tebow!
Wow. I saw the post about Denver. That's huge. The 49ers better sign Alex Smith. Quick!
It's going to be interesting to see where Tebow goes (I love that guy) and what moves Denver makes to get better.

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.

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...

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...

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...

I don't remember seeing a game on TV where you could hear the quarterback talk and direct things as much as last night's Monday Night Game. Peyton seems to be in full control of the offense. Pretty fun to...
