The San Francisco 49ers are tired of being asked about the time they actively courted Peyton Manning. The team claims that it "evaluated" Manning as they would any other free-agent - but most people know they're full of poop. They wanted him just like many other teams, including the Broncos, did. And who can blame them? Alex Smith blows.
Now, with the Broncos meetin the 'Niners in their third pre-season game, the media is asking all about it again. The 'Niners are sticking to the company line but Peyton isn't really playing along. He told BayAreaNewsgroup.Com: “It’s pretty well documented how all that went down in the offseason. Not really going down memory lane.”
To paraphrase: They're fibbing, but Manning doesn't really want to talk about it.
