NFL Predictions: San Francisco 49ers, Not the Denver Broncos Advance to SB XLVII
'81, '84, '88, '89, '94...2012?

The San Francisco 49ers should not harbor any qualms over not signing Peyton Manning.

Peyton Manning should do the opposite by choosing to sign with the Denver Broncos.

I have two words for you: postseason relevance. Oh, and let’s add three more: Super Bowl contender.

The 49ers have and are just that. The same cannot be said for the Broncos.

At 35 years old (36 in two days), Manning has just signed the final contract of his Hall-of-Fame career.

His sole and well-documented purpose for resuming play in the NFL is another Super Bowl title. He has ostensibly signed with the team, the Denver Broncos, which he believes will give him the best chance at securing the Lombardi Trophy.

Perhaps that will come to fruition a few years down the road, but in 2012, not so much.

Follow along as I document the four reasons why the 49ers, the team Manning could have joined, earns a spot in Super Bowl XLVII while his Broncos will have to sit at home and watch with envious eyes.

Note: I possess not an ounce of ill will towards Mr. Manning. This is not a diatribe against one of the classiest of all-time.
