Didn't your mother teach you once the age old adage saying; "why mess with a good thing?" Then again, maybe it was your father who told you once; "if it ain't broke don't fix it? I don't think Jim Harbaugh was raised by wolves, I could be wrong I guess. I think His little brother John listened to their parents.
Why are we doing this ?!! and a lot of it in secret. Flying at 2am in the morning on a Air-Force approved "stealth fighters" , waking up Peyton in the middle of the night to throw a few "off the radar footballs". Going behind Alex's back, and whispering "secret combinations" into His "client privelage" agent's ears? Telling the 49er public, that Alex is "our man", while all along their time was spent down in the basement, in a dark room, "plotting and planning". the next objective.
If Alex was offered 24 million over 3 years...and felt that it was a little low. I'm sure He would of told Tom Condon to work out the details and get it done. Somethings not right here. What's wrong with the picture? Were both Baalke and Smith fed bad information by Tom Condon to his own benefit? And even if Alex Smith for some reason wanted more time to think about ? Out of the blue and all the sudden we set our sights and go "great guns" and "full throttle" after Peyton Manning with the $100 million dollar bionic-neck. "Low-Ball" Alex ! (I almost have to try not to laugh at saying that). At what cost ! The cost of it now is that by Tuesday most likely we won't have a Quarterback. Ok, I'll let a little secret out now and throw all caution to the wind... here goes... "Peyton is not coming here" people. Denver's offered $90 million for five years. Let me repeat. $90 million, 5 years. The Tennesse owner has offered the same plus owner-ship, lifetime employment and His 1pm tee-time at Augusta. Yes, Peyton wants another ring and would be (yada, yada, yada) willing to fore-go some money to make this happen (yada, yada, yada) . Folks, Peyton knows, He can still win a ring with Denver plus break the bank.
Remember how last year we had a record of 5-10...and were going no-where? Please, Niners Brass, I beg of you, come to you're collective senses.
