"...........On if he did not want to play for an NFC team because he didnít want to face Eli Manning in the playoffs until the Super Bowl:

ďItís
unfair to say that because I wouldnít have had the discussions and the
talks and the workout for the San Francisco 49ers if that were the case.
I knew that San Francisco was in the NFC. When the two of us started to
talk, I very easily could have seen myself being a 49er. Thatís why it
was so hard. I kept wanting for someone to just tell me where to go. The
NFL Draft isnít all that bad because you just go there and there is no
choice. Having it be my choice, that got harder and harder especially
the more I got to know these people. [Tennessee Titans head coach] Mike
Munchak might be one of the greatest guys Iíve met in this entire
process; I loved him, I loved [Jim] Harbaugh and so the more I got to
know them the harder it was to say no. John Elway was right: when I
called him Monday morning, it had been a rough morning for me having
already had to call these other two teams telling them it wasnít going
to happen. That was hard for me, but obviously I was excited to be able
to tell Denver I was coming here. I was glad to hear they were excited
as well.Ē

LOL, Harooni, I missed the irony of that statement the first time around.

he did the league a huge favor.

Didnt upset the balance of the NFC, let the broncos part with the tebow headache, then his decision led to the Jets doing something stupid.

Wins all around
