The Manning Crashers
As the Peyton Manning sweepstakes come to an end, the stories of his time during free agency will not. Officially reported yesterday by Michael Lombardi and Jason La Canfora (of the NFL Network), apparently when the Seattle Seahawks found out that Manning had a meeting in Denver, they flew a crew of team officials out to Denver to try and woo the 4 time MVP.
Manning focused on his Bronco meeting did not re-schedule any time to accommodate the Seahawks.
The Seahawks eventually ended up signing Matt Flynn (the Green Bay Packers former backup QB) this past Sunday, to compete with Tavaris Jackson this upcoming season.
Lombardi dubbed the Seahawks "The Manning Crashers" yesterday on the NFL Networks coverage of the Manning signing.
