    Will Free Agents Come Here? Wallace and Jennings?

    Last year we whiffed on Peyton Manning. (As I recall Ross/Ireland said we were going to make a "Splash")

    We went after Jeff Fisher, he chose St Louis.

    Matt Flynn Visited but opted to Sign with Seattle.

    Jim Harbaugh could not be Swayed from Ross/Ireland combo chose San Francisco.

    Ryan Clark chose to stay with the Steelers. After visiting Miami. Asked why No One is Going to Miami...
    He Tweeted "No One! To Believe I almost went there but it was easy decision not to. It's my honest opinion. Not a good guy making decisions"

    I remember when All the Free Agents wanted to come here. Are we that Toxic?

    Why are you asking this question. You and many like you think they won't due to Ireland. While a few of us think otherwise.

    Peyton was never coming here because we didn't have the money he wanted despite his comeback not being about the money. Thank all involved we didn't get Fisher and Ryan Clark is a punk who used us to get more money from the Steelers, he was never coming here.

    Players will come despite what some here will tell you just ask Wake and Paul who signed for less to stay here and Bush who claims he wants to resign.

    Peyton signed with the highest bidder, don't delude yourself. Denver was the only team in realistic position to offer him 100 million dollars over 4 years. It helped that Denver had a defense built to play with a lead (like the one he had in Indy), a solid offensive line, and two outstanding wide receivers who flew under the radar because Tim Tebow can't throw a football worth a damn. Denver is also in a total chicken**** division that means he would have a great chance at a bye or home field advantage in the 1-3 years he figured to have left in the tank. It was a no brainer.

    You're nuts if you think the city of Miami, Steve Ross, John Elway, Pat Bowlen, or Jeff Ireland had anything to do with that. The team that offered him the most money also had the most attractive situation. Don't assume that because Miami wasn't the best spot for Peyton Manning that Miami won't be the best spot for a Mike Wallace or Greg Jennings, etc.
    "Society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence." - Thucydides, probably predicting the rise of internet message boards

    Thats Cool Man. I agree about Fisher. Why reach out to Peyton, Alex Smith, Clark, if they are just using us? We obviously had some interest? Registered Guy Dude, I Agree with you Man. Denver because of Money and Team was a Better Fit. But it would have been Sweet to get him. We need a Player to put Asses in Seats at Sun Life...
