Peyton Manning 'Threw the Ball Great' Friday, According to John Elway

San Francisco GM Jed York stirred the pot a little bit earlier this week with a humorous and misleading allusion to Peyton Manning and the 49ers.

In hindsight, that little joke might have been a little bit of foreshadowing, as the 49ers have now been outed as the third horse in the race for Peyton Manning, along with the Titans and Broncos. With rumors circulating that Manning may be asking for upwards of $60 million in the first two years of his contract, some fans may be rightfully concerned with his ability to throw the football. Don't worry, Bronco's GM John Elway put our minds at ease today.
