Jim Harbaugh Says The Perception That 49ers Pursued QB Peyton Manning Is "Phony"
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh today said he wanted to clarify a misperception that he's been seeing since March: That the 49ers were pursuing then free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, who narrowed his options to the 49ers, the Titans and his ultimate choice, the Broncos. "It's an erroneous perception that we were flirting with Peyton Manning. I keep hearing that over and over again," Harbaugh said according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. "It's silly, and it's untrue. It's phony. Even the perception that we were pursuing him ... we were evaluating him. I've said all along, Alex Smith has been our quarterback. There's been no scenario, other than Alex choosing to sign with another team, that we would have considered him not as our quarterback. Alex Smith is our quarterback, was our quarterback and we had every intention of bringing him back," Harbaugh said. "There would be no circumstance that we would have let Alex Smith go."
Maybe he saw what he could do and actually didnt like the shape manning was in. Then again the niners are very secretive and he probably is a liar. I dont care as long as he wins. Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary seemed like honest men lol.
As he tends to do. Keep winning and IDGAF what kind of wild tales he wants to throw out to the media. Tell them Alex literally shits turds of 24k gold and will bring 27 Lombardis to SF for all I care, just keep up the shrewd drafting and be a constant presence in the playoffs.
