Peyton Manning's failed suitors suffer
The Arizona Cardinals, who hosted a visit with Manning but could not sign him, fired head coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves.
The Philadelphia Eagles, who could not get so much as a visit with Manning despite their efforts, fired head coach Andy Reid.
The New York Jets, who also could not get so much as a visit with Manning despite their calls, fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
The Kansas City Chiefs, who tried but failed to get an audience with Manning, fired head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli.
The Tennessee Titans, finalists for Manning before losing out on his services, fired chief operating officer and head of football operations Mike Reinfeldt.
The Miami Dolphins, who never advanced very far in their pursuit of Manning, didn’t reach the postseason after drafting quarterback Ryan Tannehill with their first-round pick.
Shudder to think where the Broncos and their sack of topsoil would be right now...
